what is it?

it is a science of exercise and internal awareness that produces super-health. its movements are natural and do not force the body to exceed its capabilities. the body becomes strong through developing an internal strength rather than muscle power or aerobic activity.
the movements and internal exercises create alignment in the body and a balanced posture.

what it can do for you:

  • build your strength and stamina, enhancing the immune system.
  • deepen your breath so you feel into more of yourself.
  • connect you to your body to heal your spirit.
  • the gentle, rhythmic movements give the body an experience of itself.
  • bring an awareness of the infinite, subtle intelligence of your body.
