  • I have come to you with an aim not to do the split or get a foot behind the left ear. It was my back that hurt much. Even massages couldn’t help. I have been training with you for less than a year time and forgotten about the pain 3 months later. Besides I enjoy my posture and healthy back now. I lost 3 kg even though I don’t watch much my nutrition. I think I can take my nutrition up too. I am fit now. After my health problems have gone, it’s time to think about split  though it’s not the most important for me. I love your workouts because I can relax after the hard working day. You are a very positive person that’s why the atmosphere at your sessions is very light and an hour seems to be like a minute. We work out but at the same time I feel relaxed. I always leave your sessions being in a good mood. I value your calmness and patience. I am so happy to have chosen your training. Thank you so much for your professionalism and positivity. Ruthie

  • For many years I had been attending different stretching studios and at last I found my trainer! At his session I was doing easily those workouts which I couldn’t do before! The session passed so quickly! His approach and attentive attitude to the students inspire so much! Thank you very much, Vyacheslav! Ann

  • Two years ago I saw Vyacheslav on the Internet and also got acquainted with his training system. I was going to start attending his sessions but alas…There happened an extremely serious surgery, a prohibition on any exercises and disability in the future. I used to practice yoga. It was just for me, without fanaticism. At my own risk without a doctor's permission I decided to return to yoga practice. I felt better but the problems didn’t disappear completely. On May 25 I came to the trial session to Vyacheslav. Today is July 25. Over 2 months (only twice a week) I have already had lots of achievements! Since the system is created in such a well-thought- out manner that develops flexibility of the entire body and primarily it develops the flexibility of the fascia. In fact, what is the body? It is a skeleton, enlaced with the nerves, fascia, veins, arteries and covered with the skin. And yes, there are holes for the head, arms and legs in this “sack”. By the way, there are excellent exercises for these parts too which are very helpful! Summary – In 1970, when V.Lenin’s birthday anniversary was celebrated, I was expelled from the choir for bad behavior. Since then I try to be good and hope to be expelled only after I learn all the splits and lotus poses!!! Appreciated to the author of the system and his talented pupil Helen, the pensioner.

  • I’ve been training at Slava’s studio for about half a year. All the exercises are easy but very effective. The first result can be seen almost instantly. I had flexibility issues when I was a kid. I wasn’t flexible by nature as most of girls were. Such an effect in such a short time which I achieved training with Slava, I hadn’t been able to reach before. Recently Slava has released his video training sessions. I bought “The flexibility course for beginners” and “Flexibility in 5 days”. I work out almost every day at home and also at the studio before and after the training. All the sessions are simple and easily understood; I watch the video and follow it. Slava is a perfect example of how one can achieve excellent results at any age. The most important thing is to just get started! I can recommend training at FlexDerekSchool to everyone who wants to improve his flexibility. Victoria

  • Dear Vyacheslav, Thank to you and Moukhtar Gusengadgiev for the unique methodology and competent approach. I have met nothing more brilliant than your methodology neither on the Internet nor at training sessions with instructors at elite fitness clubs. Good luck and well-being to you!!! John

  • Every person is unique and beautiful in a special way! That’s what you will find out just after entering FlexDerekSchool. You will feel that you are loved as you are even being a beginner and absolutely inflexible. On the contrary, you will be supported in all your aspirations so that afterwards be admired for your hard work and persistence in achieving the set goal. But the most important thing is that you will get something more valuable, going far beyond stretching theory and practice. You will learn how to listen to your body and trust yourself! Thank you, FlexDerekSchool! I could do that with you!! Jennifer

  • All my life I’ve been suffering from my inflexibility. Even such a banal thing as touching my knees with the forehead was a disappointing failure. When I first came to this training I didn’t have any set goal, yet having a slight hope. Most of all I liked the professional and individual approach towards everyone, the system of signing up for the training sessions, support in difficult exercises. I had been training for three months and had good results but then due to the work trip I missed a lot and came again like the first time. I stretched even worse than before. So I recommend all not to miss if possible. Now I attend the studio together with my husband and we are very pleased. It helps us to relax and purify after a difficult working day, not to think about the problems…Our family is very happy that Slava is our friend. Wish you a further development!!

  • I had been looking for a flexibility development school for a long time as I hadn’t accepted very narrow views of flexibility at my city’s fitness clubs. By chance I came across Slava’s contact information, and here we go I have been training with him for three months. I attend his sessions with a great motivation considering that I am a bit lazy. Thank you for the atmosphere, your mood, your knowledge that you share with us and for the visible results!

  • I came to FlexDerekSchool being “wooden”. It’s not possible for me to devote as much time to my body as I wish. Being busy at work and taking care of the house take a lot of time. But a year after I started training I can see visible results – within a year my body not only got flexible, it became more obedient and changed its shape- the muscles stretched out, the posture got better. The training methodology works. Due to complex stretching of the entire body a new perception of the body comes out – you can open its new capabilities and find those muscles which you couldn’t even expect to exist. Every reclaimed inch is a drive of a big victory over yourself and a new question “What more can I achieve?” and “Can I do it?” Searching for the answers is the biggest quest. Thanks to Slava, the trainer, for he teaches us not only how to do exercises but how to be patient and see the beauty, he helps to deal with ourselves on the initial stage of training when the body is not obedient at all. I have never seen him sad, depressed or ill. He is always full of energy, fit and cheerful. His spirit, his beautiful and flexible body inspires me. I quit smoking, eating junk food, lost weight. The interesting people train at the studio; I love communicating with them. Stretching is the best anti-stress and vitamin for the healthy body. I’m pleased with the organization of the training sessions and random schedule. I can miss the gym or the swimming pool but I never miss the talk with my body. It is my best companion.

  • The workouts give me flexibility, energy, joy and strength. All that seemed disappeared years ago is coming back to me. This helps me much to learn to love myself. The trainer is experienced, ready to support in eliminating the barriers which seemed to be insurmountable without injuries before. However, he looks like a nice lad with adult’s smiling eyes. It’s worth it to try and understand that the most exciting thing is learning about you. And it’s just started! The favorite pupil of the loving teacher

  • Stretching and flexibility are very important for me as a ballet dancer since you have to do that. I always considered myself inflexible and was sure that’s not my strong point. After a month of workouts with Vyacheslav I am convinced in the opposite. Before I have attended different stretching training sessions but the biggest progress has been achieved here.

  • It has 3.5 years passed since I came to Vyacheslav’s training session. Being one of the first students of the studio in Kyiv, I remember almost all the guys I met not only at the studio but also in ordinary life and sometimes at work. Their progress, physical, mental and professional, without exceptions, is visible and so is mine. Our trainer’s progress has grown too. It can be said with certainty that the studio’s slogan “Body & Mind flexibility” is not just words. It is true. Each of us has noticed how the tiredness and heavy head after the hard working day turn into the lightness of spirit and pure thought. When you go out after the workout in severe freezing weather, you feel the desire to run, create, live…live a full life thanks to a great trainer, good friend and just a good man, Vyacheslav. After all, he managed to gather a company of such good, successful students and like- minds as he is.

  • Why do I work out with Slava? It's simple – I feel good and harmoniously for a long time and I can see my healthy and flexible body as the result. There is no limit to perfection – that’s what you realize while looking at Moukhtar Gusengadgiev. And Slava gives the opportunity to reach such perfection through the workouts. And it is real. As a result, something incredible happens! These are not just work outs which you do during an hour and forget until the next one. No! Everything changes – thoughts, mood, sense harmony with the world and feeling of the lightness I love it! It is a sort of addiction for me Thanks !!!

  • The main endearing quality of Slava is his eternal, infectious enthusiasm which seems to have grown over the last 3 years of my training with him. Frankly, stretching is not that easy. That is, carried out by Slava, the stretching exercises look like very easy. And even I, a lazybones, haven’t faded away only because of Slava, of his passion about stretching which can melt a snowman. And when a snowman discovers that he has become fit , cheerful as a young bunny (a carrot- nose suits him just fine) over the last 3 years; and stretching has turned from difficult thing into the kind of pleasure, so now the snowman no way cannot be kicked out FlexDerekSchool. I swear on Frost Queen!

  • It is a perfect way to develop flexibility and devote time to your body. It can be combined with any other sports. The workouts of a chamber format in a relaxing atmosphere. It is a very convenient location of the studio which is always clean and neat. Individual schedule is a big advantage.

  • Sometimes I think that I’ve been looking for the body flexibility development training my whole life! Our body knows us more than we expect but we aren’t taught how to love it and work on it! The workouts allow to feel every muscle, open the hidden capabilities of the body (you’re never too old to do that), receive the precious feedback from our emotional world. Everything is harmonious in life and so are we! If we are flexible, life becomes more flexible with us, offering compromises. And Slava demonstrates this to us all the time by his example! He teaches us to approach every action thoughtfully, not hurry but feel all that we do, what we stretch, how we live, what we eat. One could just envy his inner organization and optimism. He is very mature though he looks like a boy. And he has a very beautiful body. I wish his every plan to be realized!

  • Every human-being is given the body, an external sheath of the soul. And what kind of body you choose depends only on you. To get up in the morning and see one’s perfect body in the mirror is that everybody can afford, all is needed is to work on that. I can confirm it from my personal experience. Your body gladly gives in to any changes. And it is much better if these are changes for good. Everyone is inherited flexibility from the birth…but not everyone can prolong and maintain it and not in every place one can be taught to do that. The main thing is to find the right place and the right master! I have such a person in my life and I am very grateful for that… Gracefully flying after the training, I look forward to our next workout. See you soon, Flex Derek.

  • Training at FlexDerekSchool is the possibility to get balanced. As my schedule is very tight, and there are a lot of thoughts in my head and I cannot relax very often. And I could reach it at your workouts. It’s too bad that I couldn’t work out with you longer as I had moved to the US. However, I keep on doing what we have started together. Thank you!

  • So far I am a beginner. It has been only 1.5 month, 10 training sessions twice a week. But I’ve already got drawn into this so deeply that I know I won’t give it up until I see a substantial result. Why do I attend the workouts? I want to see the limit of my capabilities and go beyond. I’m not hurrying. I am enjoying the changes in me. Slava is an excellent trainer. He is ready to share his knowledge with his students if it is required. And so everyone comes in search of something special and as a result gets what he has looked for.

Date of birth: 1982, Litin, Vinnytsia region. When I was 4 my passion for sports started with the doorway pull-up bar installed by my father. At the age of 17 I entered the Faculty of Physical Education of the  Vinnytsya Pedagogical University. After that I was a successful ’’office worker’’ in the Internet advertising. At that time I stressed my body out and  gained weight 12kg more than my normal weight should had been(80kg instead of 68kg).By chance in May 2009 I met the most flexible man on the planet. In September 2009 I started FlexDerekSchool , the studio in Kyiv where I train to this day.
