Course Description:

Sitting and standing with proper alignment improves blood flow, helps keep the nerves and blood vessels healthy, and supports the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.  According to physical therapists, structural balance is by far the most important thing needed for injury-prevention. Mobility training can improve the range of motion in joints/muscles and it can also assist in improving posture.  In this class, we will work on strengthening the postural muscles, mobilizing the joints, and improving balance.  Each week you will receive a protocol and a homework assignment to help you improve posture and balance.

Week 1 Postural Stability.

Week 2 Strengthening Postural Muscles.

Week 4 Balance & Coordination.
