Movement Education for Longevity

Philosophy:

This is a medically based personal training program that combines functional movement/positions, yoga, strength training, and movement education. It aims to fill the gap between injury rehabilitation and achieving a desired level of function beyond physical therapy goals as well as catering to anyone who wants to learn about movement. This includes how to move in ways the human body was designed such as squatting, lifting, balancing on one leg, reaching overhead, and getting up from and lowering to the floor safely. A comprehensive, progressive, and/or modified movement program is created for the participant’s specific ability level and goals. Tenets of this program include exercise and knowledge as preventative medicine and preparation for life. With a deeper understanding of movement, participants develop the agency to create healthy movement choices in their daily activity. This approach is collaborative, skilled, and individualized to meet your needs.
