Breathe. Stretch. Take Off


Flex-n-Fly is a stretching/relaxation class provided to customers before they board their international and domestic flights. Our company will provide high quality 35 minutes stretch/relaxation exercises to people dealing with anxiety as well as those that are just in need of a fun class before they board their flights. The idea is to provide a place of serenity while having the body release endorphins making flying internationally and domestically a smoother more pleasurable experience.

A native of Argentina, Rosario holds a Medical Degree from the UNLP (National University in La Plata, capital of Buenos Aires province) and she did her specialization residency in Radiology.
