CoMBo Conditioning for Mindbody
Health and Integration through Contemplative Movement
Dr. Kim Chandler Vaccaro
CoMBo conditions the mindbody. It begins with a contemplative movement practice to take the focus inward. Concentration is directed to open the gates of energy in the body, release the soft tissue and connect to the core. Once the body is fully prepares through strengthening of major muscle groups, different rhythms of the body are explored through choreography and improvisation. Selected combinations build coordination, balance, flexibility, strength, musicality, and confidence. CoMBo helps to integrate the central nervous system, create important neural pathways between action and thought, and leaves a feeling of lightness, capability and joy. The effects are immediate and long lasting, and it can be adapted to any age group or level of ability.

Recommendation by Dr. Lorraine Person:
“This is really fantastic. Great concept, great execution. It shows such a in-depth integration of the field with years of experience and wisdom. Such an important work. I want to sign up immediately and start giving classes in France.”
