Movement, Posture, Breath, and Stillness
You will begin your training by gently stretching and toning every muscle, joint and nerve in your body.
As you become more flexible and fit, you will begin to explore the essentials of Breathwork. You will notice changes in your postural alignment and energetic awareness very quickly.
It is always a good idea to try new things carefully, especially if you are new to any form of exercise, have any chronic health concerns, or have any previous injuries.
You will also be guided into meditative states of stillness, connection, and experiential opportunities to become more coherent and adaptable with your awareness.
