This includes stretches, habit modifications, spiritual insights, and plenty of bellies laughs to soften even the tightest posts. Consequently, people are able to resolve deeper alignment issues affecting their health.

Whether you're a professional athlete or someone who prefers to spend their time on the couch, there's always more to learn about taking care of your body. With Alignment Matters, you'll learn how to keep every part of your human-machine working optimally for years to come.
