  • Improve the body's ability to move efficiently as an integrated unit, thus preventing injury and preparing the body to perform at its best.
  • Learn the most common mobility dysfunctions and how to design and implement an effective corrective strategy, beginning with foam rolling techniques.
  • Explore the anatomy and mobility of the hip, shoulder, foot and ankle to learn how to create myofascial relationships that optimize movement, prevent injury and prepare the body
