4. Assessing Movement with Practitioner
Seeing clients for various functional movement conditions
privately and in group lessons motivates me to create support to begin
to loose weight gently. I have noticed limitations in clients physical
function through concepts they have developed for themselves based upon
their weight along with the weight itself.

Shortage of breath - This would limit physical activity, add stress and anxiety, reduce sleeping abilities.
Posture – I have observed the resulting positions
clients have created in their posture due to wanting to look less heavy
in certain areas of their body. This result in chronic pain!
Bearing Weight – As my clients begin to loose weight
their movement frees up. In doing so, the position of ones structural
support can shift into a more efficient alignment. In order to realign
bone support with weight loss it is important to have professional
support of someone who can assess movement patterns and support change.
In doing so, the body will move differently and there will be more
support in not re-gaining the weight lost! As movement patterns change the memories are released and the body supports the new you!
Added Benefits – The added benefits I have witnessed
are increased interest and aliveness in living. Adding activities,
reduced effort in order to return to life. Clients have even been able
to return to work.
Please note – This is not a movement method designed for a work out
from which to tone and reduce body fat, nor is it physical therapy, or a
method designed for specifically stretching muscles such as yoga. This
is a method of working closely with a practitioner in order to assess
your individual patterns that are restricted you from having an easier
