The Grand Re-Opening of Kika Stretch Studios took place recently to celebrate the new ownership of the Westfield studio. Kika Stretch Studios, originally owned by Hakika DuBose-Wise, a professional dancer, provides a uniquely assisted stretching method (called the “KIKA method”) to increase flexibility, unlock tension and help clients reach their personal health and flexibility goals. Hakika started the company seven years ago with her last five hundred dollars and a dream.  The KIKA Method®, which is revolutionizing the world of stretching, is built upon Ms. DuBose's training in dance, personal training, the Alexander technique, Laban movement analysis and advanced anatomy. Her stretch coaches are thoroughly trained in her techniques of unlocking flexibility. Kika is also the developer of Kika Stretch Years® a systematic method of measuring your age in flexibility years. Clients are able to track their progress and become younger than before, in Kika Stretch Years®.

Since then, Kika Stretch Studios experienced success with locations in NYC, Westfield and Montclair.  The Westfield location was franchised, and now Leilah and Bradley Robinson are the new owners.  With persistent training and perfection of her skills as a stretching coach since 2017, college friend, Leilah Robinson and husband, Bradley took the opportunity to become the first franchise owners of the Westfield location located at 66 Elm Street, Ste #2.
