Who we are

All about our company

Why choose Us.

We specialize in how the body moves. We have a personalized approach that integrates your background and occupation. We have a unique environment where you can be yourself. We will never judge you or allow anyone working with us to be judgemental. We are dedicated and determined to help you reach your goals for your body. We will be demanding at times and expect a strong commitment from you to meet the highest standards possible during the re-training.

Our Mission.

Changing the way you move! We were born to move. But because of sedentary lifestyles, lack of mobility due to dependence on technologies, bad exercising habits, injuries, or aftermath of surgeries and traumas the body has progressively lost its mobility, flexibility, coordination and strength. Our mission is to help you reset the entire body to its functional state by re-training your habits and developing your body awareness. Everyone can become a natural mover again and enjoy daily activities with comfort and freedom.

What we Do.

Whether you are an office worker suffering from pain in your lower back, neck or shoulders, a professional artist or an athlete with a disabling injury, or someone curious to develop new physical capabilities, we can help you by changing the way you move. We call this "re-training". We promote healthy and natural ways of moving your body that have been lost or repressed. You are central in this process. We will observe you, listen to your needs and define clear goals with you. We will then design the best strategy and program for your own personal case. Each client is unique so we do not follow any generic methods that are popular but may not suit you. Our re-training relies on proven principles from biomechanics with a pedagogical approach. Your commitment combined with our skills and dedication is the key element for success.
