You will learn how to:
• Ease tension around your hips and in your legs
• Smoothly rotate with increased range of motion and no forcing or straining
• Movements to keep up and improve further
• An 'activation routine' you can do before running, working out or as a stand alone feel good daily routine

• Improves muscle control and decreases tension rapidly
• Improves your ability to rest fully and sleep better
• Increases body awareness and emotional regulation
• Teaches you how to fix yourself independently from a therapist
• Has a 'less is more' approach to hone in on refining your movement – like a base layer to other activities
• Is suitable for high performance athletes as well as people starting a training
•Does not need any equipment
•Makes you independent from needing a therapist to 'work on you'
