karad[a]ctive is a made up word with KARADA and ACTIVE. KARADA means body in Japanese and ACTIVE as the word you know. That's because our mission is to re-activate your/our body!!
As we grow, our body develop various habits and unfortunately those are mostly bad ones. It is important to realize what's happening to your inactive body parts so can address those issues.
You can touch the surface of what AT is about with workshops, and develop further with 1on1 lessons where teachers help you realize bad habits and send direction to activate your KARADA.
