Align and Flow
Alignment helps us connect to our bodies’ intelligence. Inner awareness may be hidden due to inattention or habitual patterns. Healthy alignment helps us to be informed and safe while considering our unique differences.
We begin to develop awareness from the inside out so that we know when our form is not healthy and can feel when everything is in just the right place! This is how we flow with awareness and ease.
