I offer bespoke personal training sessions which focus on functional, aligned, whole body movement patterns to improve strength, mobility and overall fitness. I specialise in Kettlebells as I believe they are one of the most effective and efficient tools to train with. I also teach Animal Flow®, a program that combines quadrupedal and ground-based movements to create fluid and challenging movement sequences.
Movement therapy is a combination of techniques, which teaches people how to move better in order to reduce pain, rehab injury and allow you to lead an active, pain free life. It is a whole body approach to re-aligning the body as opposed to spot treating areas of concern.
This method is for you if you…
- Have any pain or niggles in your body
- Are recovering from an accident or injury
- Are curious about your alignment, movement habits and gait pattern and want to prevent future injury and repetitive stress
- Are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant and want to make sure you are in the best health for birth and beyond
In our sessions you will learn…
- To perform functional daily movements properly in order to move better through life
- To become aware of your movement habits which might be causing wear and tear on your body
- Better form and technique in your sport or gym workouts
- How to manage your pain or injury with exercises you can incorporate into your daily life
What to expect in a session
Your first session will involve a biomechanical assessment of your body and gait analysis if appropriate. We will then work together to improve your alignment, walking pattern and most frequent daily movements. I will show you how to sit, stand, walk and move well – all the things you take for granted but may be causing or contributing to your pain or symptoms.
I will then prescribe a set of corrective exercises specific to your needs, which will be sent to you in video format and updated after each session. Ideally you should set aside 15 minutes 4-5 times a week to do the exercises, but many of them can be incorporated into your every day life.
Gait Analysis (Anatomy in Motion™)
Gait is one of the best and most effective tools to study human movement. Anatomy in Motion™ is a system developed by Gary Ward, author of What The Foot, which looks at how the body moves through the gait cycle. He created the Flow Motion Model, a map of how all joints in the body move through all three planes of motion at each stage of gait. Due to past injury, habits or pain we may be avoiding certain movements and positions as we walk. The model allows us to spot these compensations and gently introduce them back to the body.
The AiM method often starts by looking at how the feet are moving (or not moving). When we re-learn how to fully pronate and supinate the feet the results spiral upwards into all other joints of the body allowing for greater freedom of movement and overall balance.
