Move More, Move Better

Restorative Exercise is a whole-body, whole-life approach to movement. With a focus on alignment, we’ll explore corrective exercises designed to bring your body back into balance in order to prevent injury, promote healing, and build functional movement patterns that will support you in and outside the studio.

More than just a fitness routine, RE teaches you how to be your own body expert – enabling you to trouble-shoot aches and pains, stretch more safely and effectively, and perform both daily activities and athletic adventures with more ease and confidence. This gentle approach to strength and mobility training is appropriate for all levels of fitness.

Private Coaching

My style of coaching is about one part movement, two parts discussion. As opposed to a traditional personal training session where you’re lead through a series of challenging fitness exercises, our focus will be more on assessing your alignment, choosing a handful of select corrective exercises that address your top concerns, and finding ways to integrate better alignment and movement habits into your existing lifestyle. 

If you’re looking to increase functional strength and mobility, and need some extra guidance and support, this may be a good fit for you.

I’m currently accepting limited clients online and in-person (in the Portland, OR area). For in-person options, please send me a message via the “contact me” page.

Body Chat

Have a quick alignment question? An online 30 minute Body Chat might be right for you if:

  • you’re working through Katy Bowman’s books/programs on your own and want a little feedback and guidance
  • you’ve only got time and energy to focus on one or two exercises at the moment
  • you just want to get nerdy about alignment, transitioning to minimal footwear, building a movement-rich lifestyle, etc!
