Healthy Spine for Strength & Flexibility

The spine is a masterpiece of design containing over one hundred joints and associated muscles and ligaments. How, then, is it possible that so many people suffer from debilitating pain associated with the spine? 

  • Look closer at the joints in the spine, embody commonly-held ideas about our “back”

  • Experience positive changes both on an emotional and functional level.

  • Discover that an understanding of spinal evolution leads to a fresh approach to movement and exercise for the spine
