Help clients to effectively improve range of motion and encourage active movement patterns using the G Ball (Stability Ball). This Course provides a variety of stretches for the entire body that you can teach to your clients.

I have gained, and reinforced, many important stretching and anatomical concepts as a result of taking this course. As appropriate, I will suggest and demonstrate to my clients the various stretches included in this course.
