This training enables our instructors to identify patterns of strength and weakness in the upper and lower body in order to personalize the session for each client’s diverse needs. Our instructors are dedicated to helping their clients reach their individual goals. Focusing your determination, strength, and breath creates a harmony of mind, body and spirit - only then can you achieve what you never thought possible.
