"Our focus is to improve the students' quality of movement, not simply the quantity."

Movement for Life is a community that are eager to explore and develop their ability to move in new ways. Each person has unique reasons for wanting to move their body better. It may be to perform more effectively in a sport (surfing, jiu-jitsu, golf), practice (yoga, meditation, dance), or life in general (walking the dog, feeling younger).

We have been inspired and tutored by innovative movement coaches like Ido Portal, Paul Chek, and Guy Voyer (ELDOA). We take a 'generalist approach' which demands that we explore many often overlooked areas of movement such as mind-body games, specific joint mobility, bodyweight strength, locomotion and infant development patterns, joint decoaptations (ELDOA), myofascial stretching, coordination, rhythm, grace, and balance. Movement for Life will provide you with the education and experience to move your body better. A regular practice of this movement wisdom will reward you with a body that expresses strength, postural alignment, and mobility for the rest of your life.  

The Movement for Life mission is to teach each student how to perform movement training that focuses on form quality and health longevity.

Our community is open to anyone who is looking for a more integrative approach to furthering their health, fitness, and connection with their body. If you have an injury or experience pain that doesn't hinder your movement, you are ready to begin classes. If you have a chronic injury that does significantly hinder your movement, please contact us and offer some background information. We will, most likely, be able to accommodate you in class, but a rehabilitation phase may be required.
Watch the brief video below to find out more about our approach to movement, fitness, and health.

Where to from here?

We have created a four-part video series called 'Movement Fundamentals.'  These videos will teach you an integrated spinal exercise that will restore core coordination, left/right brain hemisphere integration, and spinal mobility.  By regularly practice of the spinal series (2 minutes per day), you may notice less clicking of your spinal joints, better head rotation, improved bowel movements, less lower back discomfort, and more flow in your spinal movement.

The first 'Movement Fundamentals' video is below.  In this video, you will learn a hip, pelvis, and low back mobility exercise which makes is the foundation of the spinal series.

If you like this video, sign up to receive the remaining three videos which will cover the mid-spine, shoulder blades, and the act of putting it all together.  There may also be a sneaky bonus video in there too! You can click here to sign up.
