Integrative Aligned Movement is a whole body movement education to restore the freedom of our body to move naturally. The modern lifestyle has reduced our neuro-muscular patterns to a fraction of what they should be. Many common and painful ailments are a result of poor motor skills that can be corrected by the practice of simple movements and body re-education.
These classes are based on Restorative Exercise® and the premise that by optimally aligning the parts of our body and relearning natural reflex driven patterns of movement, we will regain the ability to move with more integrity and freedom and experience less injury and pain. We will explore the objective alignment markers of the body and learn how to restore our body’s alignment with corrective exercises. With an eye toward making adjustments to our habits and lifestyle, we will also develop efficiency and skill in the natural movements (walking, running, crawling, climbing, lifting, etc.) for which our bodies were designed.
All bodies and levels of movement experience are welcome and I encourage using this as an opportunity to explore your body’s potential with curiosity and play.
Private Sessions in Thai Massage and MovNat training are available upon request.
