  Practicing Balance has made sports like skiing and roller blading a lot more fun. I feel more stable, sure-footed and confident so I'm willing to push the envelope mentally and physically. It can be exhilarating.

FOUNDATION SERIES: $400/series

Discover a new way to live in your body -
straighter, stronger and pain-free.

Hands-on, interactive 8-hour series

Foundations of Spinefulness gives you the basic vocabulary of everyday positions and movements that relieve pain and restore your natural strength. Eliminating pain, learning how to relax, making space between vertebrae and in joints is part of the flexibility that we often only associate with youth, but in fact can be restored at any age. This course teaches you not only how to recover, but also how to prevent wear and tear and how to relax and rest in sitting, standing and walking. As you integrate Spinefulness you will find that you have power over how you feel. When something hurts you will know what to do so you feel better instantly.

Intro classes are not prerequisite for Foundations.

PRIVATE LESSONS

There are many reasons you may opt to take private classes:

  • If pain is acute it is best to assess and understand the condition before joining group classes.
  • Some conditions need a lot of hands on guidance, e.g. bunions, excessive pain, pronounced curves of the spine.
  • Spinefulness has a lot of hands-on guidance and you may want the undivided attention of the teacher.
  • Private classes accelerate the journey.
  • Some people take private lessons to accommodate a complicated schedule.
  • A lot of people take private classes because they like them.

SPINEFULNESS KIDS/YOUTH SERIES ($200)

This is a 3-class series. Each hour class gives kids ages 10 and up the space to explore how to be straight and relaxed.

DOES THIS SLUMP LOOK ALL TOO FAMILIAR?
Would you like the kids in your life to sit with more backbone?

SPINEFULNESS KIDS/YOUTH SERIES

This class helps kids to discover a new awareness and mindset towards their spine, which benefits health and posture. Kids who get started in Spinefulness can sleep better, study pain-free, perform at higher athletic levels, and avoid or heal wear and tear in the spine, neck, shoulder, knees and feet. Spinefulness totally changes the way kids sit while using digital devices (as pictured above). Spinefulness can even increase confidence. Let Spinefulness help your kids feel and look stronger and healthier as they grow
