Participants will learn, demo, and assess in the first portion of the training. Then they will experience a gentle Neuromuscular Balancing yoga class, followed by ways to continue these practices for a lifetime of wellness and optimizing performance. This is a highly effective and simple holistic approach that identifies and corrects common imbalances.
