Now more than ever, it is essential to reduce stress and find peace within yourself...do it through movement!
By working 32 years in the Kinesiology field and getting my Bachelor's and Master"s in Kinesiology and Biomechanics, I realized how important it is to be in alignment in order to correct and prevent injuries in the body. When a joint is out of alignment, the kinetic chain is off and it affects all the joints above and below it. This not only increases the propensity of injury but can cause pain in an area where there is no known injury.
I have formulated a time-tested method of preventing and correcting muscle imbalances by looking at the full body and re-aligning it to perform to the best of the body's ability. I use corrective and functional exercises as well as yoga in order to help use the proper muscles to move correctly. The sessions are generally 1 hour and it is recommended that you come in multiple times (determined by your specific individual needs) before attempting to do the program solo.
Through my active lifestyle, many years in the business, and having the pleasure to learn from my own injuries, I have a wealth of knowledge and intuition of how to work with each individual. My own healing journey opened my eyes to the deficits of the current piecemeal way of looking at the body finding out that it may not be the best way to achieve health. There is more to correcting muscle imbalances in the body than solely looking at the particular painful joint/area. The body needs an all-encompassing movement/workout and realignment to nurture itself back to health and vibrancy. I have a great team that I refer to if my clients are in need of bodywork, etc., to help facilitate/speed up the process.
I have worked with people from ages 8 to 92 years old as well as with Division I sports teams to help people learn to have the proper biomechanics so they can prevent injury, increase strength and performance, and improve flexibility by learning correct movement.
You don't have to limit yourself and your movement to a great degree no matter your age or injury history. Come in and see how I can help you get out of the imbalances that are causing the problems and into pleasure, performance, and serenity.
Which Plan is Best for you?
(online Workouts available through zoom)
There are several ways to go about getting out of imbalances and into performance. Below are some different approaches to getting back "in shape" (proper alignment for the best performance).
For Biomechanics 1 Hour or Half Hour, you will receive an assessment and get to know what is creating your imbalances. Next, you will learn proper posture and biomechanics of basic, everyday movements. Following, you will be instructed on certain corrective exercises that you can take home to do on your own. You will have access to an online platform that will have your specific workout needs posted. The whole body will be addressed setting your mechanics straight to prevent future injuries.
When you have the proper biomechanics, you will then be able to participate and learn more dynamic exercises to increase your level of fitness while keeping your injuries at bay.
In the small group classes, it is recommended that you have previously received biomechanical instruction prior to attending. Our focus will be on more of the fitness aspect of the workout with tips and corrections as you are achieving your fitness goals.

What others have to say
"I had no idea, but she was just what I needed. Her knowledge, intuitiveness, and constant awareness is such a gift. She is so present and encouraging that the hour goes by fast. We laugh a lot and work hard and I love what changes I have already made since working with her. I have been telling all my friends how fortunate I was to have been placed in her care."
"I have been working with Monica for over a year. Whether you are looking to improve the general strength of your core and extremities or if you have a specific issue to focus on, her knowledge of the human anatomy will be an asset. Monica's sincere desire to help you achieve your goal is commendable."
"I want to express my deepest gratitude for her expert guidance over the last three months. To learn to walk again, with presence and comfort, and to do so with proper alignment and foot placement is Huge. But beyond that, she increased my Awareness. This goes beyond the mat. Thank you Monica. I've learned so much from you and am delighted to carry on with this path."
