Who You Are

You have been sidelined by an injury or an illness, and you haven’t yet found your way back to the activity level you want. Physical activity is important to you, and you know that there must be a way to get moving confidently again. You have been moving “around” pain and your body has been compensating as a result, probably creating new challenges. You need help navigating pain; and some clear strategies to create solid support and easy movement in your body. You know it may take some time, but you’re prepared to do what it takes to live a fully active life again.

Moving Spirit’s Pilates and Integrated Movement Programs provide highly specialized instruction and compassionate support. We will work with you at a pace that respects where you’ve been and what you’ve been through, but that gives you the strength, stamina and mobility to reach for more. It’s about taking small steps at first, finding pain-free success and then progressing into more challenging territory. We’ll help you to retrain your brain and your nervous system to accept movement in a new way. In addition to your personalized private training, we’ll give you simple movement tasks you can do every day to continue to build the connections and capacity that bring you back to your fully active lifestyle. You CAN do this!


RECOVER YOUR MOJO! Here are a few suggestions for programs that may best suit your needs. Private training is highly recommended, at least initially, for those managing or recovering from injury or illness. 

Single Session/Assessment: An assessment is recommended for anyone just starting out at Moving Spirit. We will carefully assess your structure, your posture, your movement needs and your goals so that we can create a program that will get you moving well fast! The assessment session offers new clients a chance to ask questions and get a feel for how we work at Moving Spirit – because it’s unlike anything you’ve done before! Single sessions are also a great option for people who aren’t able to attend regularly, or who just want to pop in from time to time for a tune-up. 

Private Training Packages:  Private Training Packages are a great choice when you need specific, one-on-one attention to your movement, if you've got complex movement challenges, or significant pain. We’ll examine what may be driving dysfunctional movement patterning, identify priorities for supporting more optimal movement, develop a program and work by your side to help you meet your goals. Training reliable new movement skills requires mindful & consistent practice. Under the careful attention of an expert instructor, you'll learn strategies to manage and eliminate pain. With repetition and practice, you'll gain the stamina and strength to sustain your fabulous new movement patterns through all of your life's many varied activities.

Monthly Small Group Reformer Class Membership:  If constant one-on-one attention is more than you need, a small group reformer membership may be a good choice for you. Complete an Introductory Private Training Package - which is a pre-requisite for our Small Group Pilates reformer classes. The package includes four 55 minute private sessions. Your first session is about assessing your posture, your movement and your core function , and includes discussion about your needs and goals. Your next sessions are about developing & teaching you your personalized program, and giving you an orientation to the studio and to the equipment.  From there - move on to the monthly Small Group Reformer Class membership of your choice.  (Please note, our Quickstart Introductory Group Class Series is not suitable for anyone with injuries, illness or movement restrictions.)

If you have any questions about which program is the best fit for you, give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you find the best solution for your needs.
