Classical Stretch TV series sponsors

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and hospitality over the last several years—without their support, the filming of Classical Stretch would not be possible.  The beautiful backgrounds in each episode are due to the picturesque scenery of the gorgeous resorts, hotels and tourist attractions where we’ve had the privilege to film.
