Slings BodyReading & Movement Strategies Foundations

Postural ease brings a feeling of inner lift and physical wellbeing. It is ergonomic, meaning standing is restful, allowing access to more energy for things more fun than laboriously resisting gravity. As a bonus, it enhances the body’s attractiveness. By learning to see structural relationships and myofascial patterns, a coherent Slings Myofascial Training strategy can be created to facilitate postural balance and, with it, the invaluable feeling of inner ease.

Reading the geometry of the body and drawing meaningful, practical conclusions is an art and a craft. The Slings BodyReading & Movement Strategy Foundations course has a well-contained structure, empowering participants to develop necessary skills with confidence. The step-by-step approach makes the complexity of postural patterns tangible and clearly explains the value of coherent exercise solutions.
