In this class you’ll perceive the gaps that the mobilizations provide to our bodies, besides presence a fluid sequence of movements. To move means hydrating the body joints and all our passive system, which are the ligaments and tendons. The mobilizations are important to strengthening, stretching and stimulating all our organs.
