This class will help you understand how you breathe, lie down, sit, stand and move. We will explore our anatomy, physiology and postural and movement patterns.

We will learn about stability and the connection between our emotions, posture and movement. We will increase our motor control, confidence and stamina. We will explore why we are the way we are and other ways to be.

This is for anyone having challenges trying to establish a healthy exercise habit. It’s directly helpful for your personal practice and if you teach there will be many excellent take aways to add to your classes and privates.

This material goes is an excellent follow up to the class “Pain Management.” Much of it has been borrowed from modern orthopedic rehabilitation.


Please come stand on my shoulders. It’s gonna be fun.
