The Happy Body Intro (or refresher) Workshop

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

Beaches Classic Martial Arts Centre | 10am (1.5 hours)

What is it?

If Yoga,  Meditation and Weightlifting had an illegitimate child – it would be The Happy Body Program.

This simple, pleasurable daily routine fuses mantra-based meditation and flexibility focused strength training. With 3 sequences of 6 movements you seek to master over the course of a year (or a lifetime), not week, a month or  6 minutes like other programs promise.  THB is responsible, accessible, sustainable fitness laser-focused on keeping your body youthful and pain-free.

Who is it for?

Elegantly designed for smart, busy people who understand how success is built. The Happy Body brings patience, focus, joy, and vision to the Art and Science of being strong and pain-free at any age.

What could I gain?

  • A new daily exercise routine that will reverse the aging process.
  • Insight and experience with THB’s meditative mantra that transforms you exercises into a moving meditation.
  • Learn how to perform the first 3 movements of the 18 exercise system ~ gaining the confidence you need to learn the rest of the system on your own.

A half an hour orientation to classical contact improvisation will be mandatory if you have been dancing less than 1 year. When in doubt reach out!
