With a specific fascial training mobility as movement quality can be increased and tensions and pain, for example because of long sitting times, can be reduced. Beside self-perception coordinative skills are trained. The exercises are especially realized with a fascia roll (Blackroll).

It is oriented towards the concept Painfree Fascia ®, but it is also complemented with elements from other training concepts from the area of Mobility.

The course Movement and Mobility is mainly about improving flexibility and movement variety. By using the Ido Portal Method and Mobility exercises by Dr. Kelly Starrett the ability of complex movements will be trained and recovered.
