    Eric has designed a comprehensive and challenging workout for novice to advanced participants. The focus is on taking participants through a hybrid training session to improve function movement (seven basic human movements). The instructor will incorporate fun and active dynamic movements as well as static stretching and breathing exercises, utilizing household items to create a more balanced approach to health. The goal is to help participants view health and exercise holistically and learn how to move their bodies in a way that is natural and restorative.
