Elemental conditioning uses the principles of functional range conditioning, a research based mobility training system to improve joint health, restore lost ranges of motion, and improve tissue resilience, with elements of yoga asana, calisthenics, and mindfulness practices such as pranayama (breath control), meditation, and gratitude.
The result is a mobile and resilient body, calm and focused mind, and joyful heart.
