IMPROVE THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOUR BODY AND DISCOVER HOW MOVEMENT CONNECTS WITH NOURISHMENT AND MINDSET.

Would you like to have optimal movement lead you to releasing unwanted weight or increase strength? Are you excited to exercise but not sure where to begin? Let's view your body's functional movement patterns and biomechanics to create success with

your health goals and get you moving in the right direction.

Mountain Path

After my head injury, I spent six months walking in the national forests and began to discover the power of nature to heal. I realized then that my purpose was to heal myself and then help others do the same. I began studying many aspects of healing with different masters from traditions across the world.

I focused on the power of food to heal, venturing off to work on permaculture farms studying the art of growing and consuming food in community based systems that were kind to the earth.  I became a backcountry guide in Alaska teaching others of the power of nature, foods of the wild and medicinal herbs.

A major surgery took me out of the game for a moment and I had to rebuild from the ground up, a second time. I had my midsection cut and had to relearn how to walk and function again. This is what brought me back to my movement practice.  I focused on posture and functional strength.  Now I focus on all of these parts together to help others find a balanced path to wellness.

I help people move their bodies, pain free and find their striving threshold so they can practice movement ongoing and build into a daily practice that works for them.  This is a highly personalized experience to address the

unique capabilities of every body.

JILL'S STORY

As a high performing athlete in high school, I trained up to 6 hours a day and consumed a massive amount of calories.

Despite my athletic scholarships to various colleges, I chose to focus my studies when I went to college instead athletics.  The obvious happened and th the freshman 15 -20 weight came on quickly and depression without followed right behind without an physical routine that had been part of my life since I was 6. 

 

I took a semester off to recoup and redirect, spending it in Hong Kong with my family. I learned Reiki, Yoga, meditatioin, Shiatsu there and went to my first women’s retreat. Those experiences  shaped my life and led me to switch my schooling to Naropa University, a Buddhist Based School that practiced many wellness arts.

 

While there, the weight came off as I began riding my bike all over boulder, practicing martial arts 5 days a week and hiking in my free time.

 

I was a high functioning type A who was about to have her life blown open.

One day on the Aikido mat, I recived a head injury. My ability to function stopped as I had a MTBI. I could not drive, read, dress myself, feed myself and had many other challenges with vision and hearing.

The Doctors told me that I had to stop all exercise and just stare and walk, they encouraged me to let go of the person I had been and let me know I would see recovery for up to 7 years.  For a high functioning type A, those words did not sit well.

After struggling to maintain a prescene at school and some sort of life, I soon realized the doctors were right. I left college for the second time and moved to the mountains above Boulder.

I spent 6 months walking in  the national forsests behind our beauitufl remote house and began to discover the power of nature to heal. This was a key moment of my life.

 

I realized then that my purpose was to heal myself and then help others do the same for themselves. I studied many aspects of healing with different masters from traditions across the world, Africa, Peru, Indonesia, Great Britain.

 

I focused on the power of food to heal, I ventured off to work on permaculture farms studying the art of growing and consuming food in community based systems that were kind to the earth.

 

I ventured futher into nature and became a backcountry guide in Alaska teaching others of the power of nature and  foods of the wild and medicinal herbs.

 

During my time in Alaska, I felt a call to help more people  in a lasting way, the people who visited me came and left so quickly. I moved to LA to be with family and began a practice here as a private chef for an International CEO, a retired Real estate mogul, a internationally famous actor and a Founder/CCO of a voice acting company. In addition I co-hosted healing retreats  based in yoga and healing food.

My private clients at that time were focused on herbs and nutrition. But I kept seeing the missing link of no movement practice in their lives.

 

A major surgery took me out of the game for a moment and I had to rebuild from the ground up once again. I had my midsection cut and had to relearn how to walk and function again.

This is what brought me back to my movement practice, walking, hiking and becoming a CPT.

I focused on posture and functional strength

 

Now I focus on all of these parts together to help others find a balanced path to wellness.
