Good health is supported by knowing your body. By taking just a bit of time on a daily

I Teach you:

  • the best ergonomic positions for the proper care of your spine and all muscles and joints.

  • self-care neuromuscular posture rebalancing exercises to improve posture, structural alignment and strengthen the muscles of the spine, pelvis and joints after injuries.

  • Yoga-like exercises which massage and lengthen muscles, release tight joints, relieve muscles spasms, stiffness and pain.

  • deep-tissue contact combined with breath techniques and contract, stretch movement for self-correction of structural and postural imbalances, muscle spasms and pain.
