Say goodbye to static stretching and hello to dynamic, integrated mobility techniques that will leave you feeling stronger, more flexible, and more confident in your practice.

You will learn the theories behind integrated mobility and how we can use them to retrain our nervous systems and incorporate some of the most effective techniques into any yoga practice. The result? Improved flexibility and functional movement. 

Discover the power of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and neuromuscular re-education techniques to unlock your full range of motion and prevent common misalignment problems. You’ll learn how to incorporate these techniques seamlessly into your asana practice, creating a more fluid and dynamic yoga experience.
