Following are workshops/classes I offer on healthy moving, breathing and eating. These workshops have been developed through teaching hundreds of classes including many classes in the medical world to disease-specific patients, including cardiac care, diabetes, oncology patients, neuromuscular diseases and of course, Stress, and Anxiety, PTSD and depression.
Why do I say "of course" when I talk about stress? Because statistics show that stress is related to 90% of disease here in the U.S. (www.stress.org)
