Create Your Happy Body: Combining Alexander Technique and Pavanmuktasana

with Hope Mell, RYT 500, ATT

February 21 - 23, 2020

Are you frustrated by pain in your body, stiff joints or restricted movement? Create your happy body and transform your movement with the Alexander Technique and Pavanmuktasana (the Joint Freeing Series).

The Alexander Technique offers a greater sense of self while bringing a revolutionary approach to finding your natural balance and exploring the connection between thinking and movement. The Joint Freeing Series offers simple and accurate movements to rehabilitate joints and gently open the body.

The choice to never move the same painful way again is yours. Living life in even mild pain can be an emotional and energy depleting experience. The opportunity is here to learn the techniques that have transformed the lives of many who have suffered from pain and difficult movement.
