Posture Improvement Course

Realign your posture by focusing on proprioceptor

Balance ball YOGA exercises have been created by the motion analysis of the yoga, dance, and top sports athlete performance focusing on sports medicine point of view. We put this knowledge into balance ball exercises, which means how to move your spine with proper posture in every single movement. It is then followed by connecting optimal movement between the spine with joints to encourage the best posture and prevent faulty movement patterns by strengthening weaker areas.
