As a movement specialist and certified corrective exercise specialist, my passion is instructing movement with a focus on alignment via restorative/corrective exercises based on a whole-body movement practice based on biomechanics. The body is assessed from the ground up to assess the quality of movement and identify dysfunctional movement patterns that may be causing aches and pains. Simple movements and adjustments are introduced that are easily accessible and immediately beneficial to re-establish alignment, balance, and strength. Every step you take can be a step towards health and well-being in a properly aligned body. Whether you're looking to move and feel better, or for whole body health, pain relief, or increased physical performance, this practice has something for you!
