03/01/2018 SYSTEMA HEALTH CLASS

Systema Health classes are similar to regular Systema classes. You will work on the four pillars of Systema - breath, relaxation, movement and structure. These principles are the foundations of Systema…and the benefits readily transfer into – and transform – our daily lives. The only difference between the health class and the regular class, is that there is no combat element. You won’t be learning how to defend yourself from external enemies in the health class. Instead, you’ll be working on mastery of yourself.
