Classes at CWMAC
Movement Therapy Workshops
The movement therapy workshops take a systematic and biomechanically based approach to the exploration and practice of healthy movement. By moving all the joints of the body through their full range of motion on a regular basis you will experience a greater ease of motion, reduce pain and stiffness, and improve your functional performance. The routines we will be practicing are easy to learn, low impact, and adaptable to all ability levels. Come join us and learn how movement is an integral part of your overall health and wellness routine.
