It is an excellent preventative technique that will strengthen your body against possible injury. It does this by developing good posture and a stronger core. It uses smooth, flowing movements to gently stretch muscles, pulling them into leaner, longer toned shapes. The exercises increase mobility and flexibility, also strengthening ligaments and joints.
