Does your body move the way it once did?

It’s time to start training the movement patterns. Now is the time to regain your mobility, build strength and feel better.

About You

You’ve never given much thought to your body’s movement. You’ve always just lifted weights and ran 5ks and never missed your Monday yoga class. This led to a competition with yourself and others. More weight on the bar. Faster miles. New asana to put on Instagram. Yet despite all this hard work you still don’t fell like you could move like a cat – with synergistic grace and power.
