NPMAC Personal Development Program

The Stephen K. Hayes mind-science curriculum is a basis for our personal empowerment program. A five minute exercise begins each class, exploring confidence, communication and personal experience. These moments are a fabulous bridge between the physical and non-physical aspects of our art.

Our personal development instruction gently guides you so that you may discover new qualities about yourself and apply proper goal setting and achieving to your life. Each physical training modality (Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Void) lets you explore new and different ways of moving and thinking.

We cover everything an effective leader wants to know – powerfully bringing resolution when others may want conflict or contention, making a good first impression to attract allies and friends, managing difficult relationships, and gaining top-notch presentation skills.

You will find our school an uplifting place to spend time with friends who share your commitment to personal advancement.
