Pain and discomfort in the body increase when muscle pairs do not work in this harmonious balance.

The result is greater stability, strength, and muscular tone with added benefits of increased fluidity and decreased pain. Foam rollers and release balls will be utilized in combination with the reformer to increase fascial mobility and ease.  R = Restorative & Nurturing: Deeply nourishing movement to complement everyday challenges of living and moving.
