Although the program is for both men and women they bring emphasis to the very unique design of the female body and its specific needs in remaining strong and healthy both emotionally and physical. They educate us on the importance of calm for women; less stress and also posture alignment for both men and women. “Postural positions affect the blood flow from the spinal cord to the brain”.
