Date: Saturday 28th Aug 2021  9:00 AM - Sunday 29th Aug 2021  5:00 PM
Location: Townsville
Details: In this class students will gain understanding, exploring and creating balance within the structures that hold us upright. Modern life tends to have us living in a fast-forward "lean" or in an overuse pattern. This creates structural disharmony, patterns of inefficient movement, pain, lack of movement and even rigidity. The aim of this class is to learn methods to notice these inefficient patterns of imbalance, learn ways to create freedom of movement, and ways to integrate these changes.  Read More...
