Learn and groove for two full days of peace, love and movement

RockStock will create a community of ideas and discussions centered around preparation, performance, and recovery for patient and athlete care. Through the lens of current practices and speakers in the field today, there will be an emphasis on ‘breathing’ throughout this continuum of care.  As we all learn and network new concepts; we will blend movement and music with sun, sand and science for an unforgettable experience.
