Our bodies have a richness of wisdom and strength to be able to deal with daily challenges. However, most of us experience life almost outside the body, with very little sense of where we are in space (proprioception) or of the interior contours of our body (interoception).
My Embody Strength classes are, as everything I do, a mix of techniques and movements I personally use to keep myself feeling balanced, strong and free in my body.
The original foundation of my classes was Classical Pilates. Later on, as I began to delve into the world of Gyrokinesis®, I added movements and sequences from that modality. There are other strengthening, stretching or functional movements or exercises I use from other modalities to enhance the body’s capacity to meet everyday life with strength, mobility, grace, adaptation and freedom.
My desire is to bring a well-rounded exploration of the body to my students.
To live well in our bodies, pelvic stability and balanced muscular strength are key, but joint mobility and fascial fluidity are also paramount! We want to move from a responsive center, with a mobile spine – the key to staying young!
As within, so without. The work starts by consciously increasing your notion of your physical self, which then translates to your external world.
Students report feeling stronger, more centered, more aligned, with better posture and breathing mechanics, translating into more confidence, less anxiety, more capacity to take things slowly and be present.
It’s your strength – Embody it.
