Mobility Class- Saturday June 13th 11:30-1230

Mobility Class- Saturday June 13th 2015

People with knee issues are going to love this one 🙂

I LOVE what Kelly Starrett (the king of mobility) writes on the main page of his website :

”  All human beings should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves” A.K.A- people should have the knowledge and equipment to manage their aches/pains/issues and live injury free without running off to professionals to help them!”

The more people I can educate, mobilize, and help the more people I can impact to feel and move better in this world.

And that’s where my mission to run the mobility class comes from!

Will you join me at APT (4255 Arbutus street) this Saturday at 11:30 am??
