With movement arts such as dance and Yoga having been around for thousands of years and more contemporary practices like Pilates and Feldenkrais being well established now, claiming to have reinvented the (movement-) wheel would be short-sighted and presumptuous. Instead, I have taken the liberty to collect, redesign and reassemble movements from different disciplines. As a Pilates or Yoga teacher you will most definitely recognize exercises and poses. Still, within Slings Myofascial Training their execution and the intention behind them might be quite different, thus giving the familiar a new dimension.
