I learned so many tips in the Healthy Brain & Optimal Posture course. I could go at my own pace and take the time to learn and implement each module. My mornings are now grounded and I know how to add deep breathing to relax anytime I need to. Thanks Lisa!!

"It's a great way to stay flexible, improve core strength and prevent back problems. Most importantly, Lisa adapts the moves to each person's strengths and weaknesses. For an hour a week, it's like getting a drink from the fountain of youth."
