Physical Wellness

Physical Wellness provides students with basic knowledge of a balanced physical lifestyle for optimum health, longevity, and the prevention of disease. Specific areas of study include; body awareness, body image, nutrition, fitness, personal relationships, healing touch, posture, somatic therapy, and bioenergetics.

Course Objectives

Students will explore their own path to wellness by establishing where they would like to make changes in their own physical lives. They will coach each other through the process of change.

Students will also learn to identify and link physical pain, muscle tension, and postural misalignment with state of mind, demonstrating that suppressed emotions can block energy flow and cause physical distress.

  1. An accurate and informed understanding of a healthy physical lifestyle
  2. An understanding of clients experiences in a wide range of wellness practices and the ability to support their client in meeting their goal
  3. The ability to “see outside the box” when confronting their own physical challenges
