FRC® is a scientific method of training movement in an attempt to maintain and/or regain full range of motion in every joint in the body.

The significance of 108, renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence and according to yogic tradition, there are 108 piths, or sacred sites, throughout India. There are also 108 Upanishads and 108 karma points, or sacred places of the body. Traditionally, malas are used for counting as you repeat a mantra or a prayer, much like the Catholic rosary. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.
