Let’s you be endlessly creative in teaching & you will never get bored. I want to share my experience with Tye4™ I have been teaching with, from Standing, Seated, Mat, Equipment. Tye4™ has endless ways to use. Such versatility. Takes up no space in a little mesh carry case.

It’s a great tool for you, & your clients/your students to teach them how to move their muscles deeply all around the bones from the top of their head down to their toes with coordination, control, concentration, fluidity, mindful movement for better posture & balance strengthening & stretching workout.

It gives cognitive feedback that stimulates & connects deep within your entire body. It involves sensory & motor integration feedback directly to your body for elongation for concentric/ eccentric movement in a closed chain environment. Fabulous rehabilitation tool firing the entire brain-body muscle/fascia connections.

I have worked with large groups and one on one for many years & now teaching online classes & privates. The feedback is amazing from everyone.
