Fluidity , continuation and rhythm.
When we stop and look we can notice that there is a natural innate instinct that oscillates around cyclical, spiralling effortless rhythms.

Walk away with a simple zenthai bodywork sequence that restores vitality and functional movement by unwinding the bumpy bits into new plains of unfixated freedom ….Life is movement and rhythm is one of the fundamental principles of Life.
