This course guides you in applying connections of concepts and techniques, for both MBS Group Classes and Individuals Lessons.
Addressing both physiological and psychological messages and how they are linked, you will gain insight into the work and tools for making the most of your work in effective and meaningful lessons.
These lessons are excerpts from a Master Practitioner Training seminar and presented in short 1-5 minute sections, each providing a concept and demonstration, allowing you to work at your own pace, toward making the most of each lesson.
We recommend printing the Study Guide at the beginning of the course. This will allow you to follow along with the different lessons and take your own notes. Each lesson has a question at the end, to help and encourage you to take these concept further and apply them to life and work, individually and in study-groups.
Many of the questions include partner-work instructions, enabling interesting and easy ways to integrate the concepts.
If you have any questions as you go through the course, feel free to contact MBS Trainers at firstname.lastname@example.org and include in the subject line: MBS Trainer Question.
