COURSE DESCRIPTION: Improve the outcomes you’re seeing with Ai Chi. Feel the change in mobility using articulation and muscle focus, or the stabilization necessary with a core focus. We will also examine balance and pain – and new breath research and application. We can use the same technique to achieve more and deeper outcomes.



1)  Experience a blend of flexibility and range of motion focus options.

2)  Engage in discussions regarding the science of breathing and how to apply it.

3)  Feel the stabilizing effect of UE, stance and depth perturbations.
