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

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

1)  Experience a blend of flexibility and ROM 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.

4)  Review Ai Chi alignment, postures and basis.
