  • Learn how to integrate the NPI posture assessment program into any current health and exercise assessment program
  • Understand how poor posture and body alignment develop, as well as how this condition can increase the chances of such postural dysfunction as back pain and risk of injury
  • Learn about such exercise sciences as anatomy, kinesiology and exercise physiology
  • Learn to perform postural assessments using a Posture and Body Alignment Grid
  • Learn methods to correct alignment, reverse long-term patterns, improve posture, relieve back pain and train people through cognitive methods via the NPI's Four Points of Posture Program and various exercise movements
