1) INTRODUCTION AND FOUNDATION
Dysfunctional movement is often linked to pain and increased risk of injury. Our training program is designed to improve movement patterns to both enhance performance and reduce the risk of injury.
We achieve this by incorporating corrective and preventative exercises to retrain dysfunctional movement patterns with high-quality movement patterns focused on improving flexibility, stability, mobility, as well as healing existing injuries.

Learn what optimal desk posture looks like, introduction to proper breathing posture and technique, and improve diaphragmatic (belly) breathing.
