Very cool stretches that I believe would be very beneficial/supportive for the client to feel refreshed, relaxed, and have more flexibility and less discomfort!

It was nice to receive 2 different DVDs, but it added to the confusion of what to watch when. I love the subject and demos, but it was a lengthy subject for self directed study. a study plan ,worksheets or syllabus would have been helpful.
