As we grow older it happens that we lose much of our natural mobility. A slow process of stiffness of the spine and joints, enters in.  Loss of strength, balance and speed, add up to a decreased mobility,
Is this an inevitable fact of life? If not, how can one reverse this process, and regain better control of the body? How can we regain our agility and flexibility?  Using varied techniques of body-mind work, a person will inevitably improve his/her body state, and this is the aim of our course.
Cost  for the course – Members: NIS 350 / Non- members – NIS 420.
