Become a BARE® Workout Instructor

The foot is the gateway into the nervous system which means that barefoot training is a powerful method for improving posture, movement, cognition and emotional awareness.

Created by Functional Podiatrist & Human Movement Specialist, Dr Emily Splichal, BARE® is the only barefoot balance training workout that uniquely combines the concepts of proprioception, interoception, breath, brain and body tension. This workout will cover basics to designing a barefoot balance workout with progressions that will challenge dynamic stabilisation, foot and gluteal strength and cardiovascular endurance.

Powered by Naboso Technology which is a small nerve proprioceptive mat designed to optimization sensory stimulation and neuro-activation from the ground up.
