I love the concept of the mind and body integration movements- body awareness, quality movements over quantity movements. The ideology of the exercises teaches visualization, offers the practionier to concentrate and focus on controlling the movement of extremities while in motion. Most of all, the unique exercise concept can benefit the young and mature, strong and weak individuals, back and neck injuries. The beauty of the program...everyone can benefit by working at their own individual fitness level. My greatest t joy is to help individuals enhance their lifestyle, by learning how to progressively take back their physical power...one muscle at a time.
