Making Connections: Hips & Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Exercises & natural movement tools to build strong knees, feet & hips.

Course Summary

Why are your shoulders included in a course about hips, knees and feet??

Answer; whether you have hip pain, knee pain or foot pain, the reality is it's all connected.

We can't really "spot fix" any one body part without looking at how that part is connected to the neighbouring bits. Like your hips and your knees, or your feet and your knees.

We also have to explore our movement patterns and habits so we can stop adding to the problems. And we need to introduce new patterns that support better movement, stronger muscles and more functional awareness of our bodies.

This course brings it all together so you can feel better, move better and be confident that you can accomplish your goals and do the things you love!

How do  you get that?

I've included a lot of material in this course that you can absorb at your own pace. 

You get:

**an 80 minute masterclass you can do whenever you have the time (cause we all have a lot of that...) that really helps you get the benefits      of moving, connecting and repeating moves that effect all the trouble spots in your body.

**short video sessions that target your feet, your hips, your shoulders and that pull it all together to support your knees. These ones are      easier to fit into your     everyday life. 3-5 times a week, alternating between videos is ideal!

**basic anatomy so you understand your body, basic alignment so you understand what your body is (and isn't) doing.

**a fun arts & crafts game to explore how your own personal hips and knees are aligned so you can work with some objective markers.

**natural movement support for floor sitting (even if, maybe especially if you can 't get down to the floor)

**minimal shoes, why they're good and how to gradually transition to using them

**a curated list of useful YouTube videos.

Movement, thoughts and feelings and tea! These are some of my favourite things!

After many years of teaching people with osteoporosis, I was diagnosed with osteo myself. After a challenging fwe weeks getting used to my diagnosis, I fully committed to creating classes, workshops and programs that serve my community.

I bring you not only my years of therapeutic movement work, but also my lived experience!

Do you need to have osteoporosis or osteopenia to enjoy my work? Nope, my stuff works for everyone! But it's a safe place for you to move and move well.

**Please note that Pelvic Floor Fundamentals was both made before my diagnosis and may have moves that aren't appropriate for all bodies** 

I've been teaching Pilates and movement for over 20 years. Realising that I wanted to hone my eye for detail, I built my skills and understanding of biomechanics and functional alignment when I certified as a Restorative Exercise Specialist with Katy Bowman and the Nutritious Movement Institute.

I'm fascinated by how bodies work and have taken part in two fascial dissections with Tom Myers of Anatomy Trains. That amazing experience has added nuance and detail to my understanding of how truly it's all connected! Also it makes for excellent cocktail party conversation.

My approach to movement and health includes exercise-specific movement, natural everyday movement, somatic body and brain exploration and a deep conviction that how our brains and bodies get together makes all the difference to how we feel. Combining functional, exploratory details and alignment with fluid, intuitive movement and an emphasis on acceptance and fun leads to sustainable change that helps you feel better for life!
