  Practicing Balance has made sports like skiing and roller blading a lot more fun. I feel more stable, sure-footed and confident so I'm willing to push the envelope mentally and physically. It can be exhilarating.

DOES THIS SLUMP LOOK ALL TOO FAMILIAR?
Would you like the kids in your life to sit with more backbone?

We help people of all ages discover a new awareness and mindset towards their spine which benefits health and posture.  Kids who get started in Spinefulness can sleep better, study painfree, perform at higher althetic levels, and  avoid or heal wear & tear in their spine, neck, shoulder, knees particularly those associated with digital device postures (as pictured above).  Spinefulness can even increase confidence.

Let Spinefulness help your kids feel and look stronger, and healthier as they grow.

Our NEW SPINEFULNESS KIDS/YOUTH CLASSES,  especially designed for our youngest, changes their daily life by creating a new way of thinking about their body! Sign up your children now and let them start their journey of Spinefulness early to prevent any health damage through wear and tear of their spine and joints.

SPINEFULNESS KIDS/YOUTH SERIES
SEPTEMBER 8 - 29 | 4:30 - 5:15 pm | ages 10 & up | $120

This is a 4-class series. Each 45 minutes class is dedicated to giving kids ages 10 and up the space to explore Spinefulness. Kids get a space to discover how to leverage their muscular skeletal systems to the utmost. Prevent aching postural habits before they start. This class will give kids the tools they need to become more efficient, whether they want to improve on their athletics, or become more coordinate. We will meet each kid at their athletic ability and show them how to take it to the next level.

TEACHER TRAINING CLASSES (WED | 7:30 - 9:30 pm)

This is for people who are interested in becoming teachers of Spinefulness. You will learn the guidelines that are the core curriculum of Foundations. Along with this you will learn how to put your hands on students to guide them to greater comfort and ease. Throughout you will be "teaching" and "checking" and being checked by fellow students so your own Spinefulness continues to deepen. By viewing the power point presentations embedded in Foundations and by examining the alignment of other students your visual comprehension of Spinefulness expands exponentially. Teachers accumulate hours towards their certification at their own pace. When 120 hours are accumulated you are ready for the apprenticeship program

Fees towards teacher certification: $60/class
