Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

From day one, Posabilities has been dedicated to offering a safe space for all students, clients, and patients to feel and be their best. COVID-19 has definitely challenged us in staying true to this mission while continuing to promote individuals and groups in realizing their greatest potentials for health, wellness, and happiness.
