Body, Kinesis & Fitness
Therapeutic Movement for Elders
Improving the health of my clients is the main objective in Therapeutic Movement. My priority is to develop and increase their agility and stamina in Functional Movement, control and modulation of movement in Kinesis, and their strength and capacity to handle objects and their own body weight in Fitness.

Sensory Motor & Coordination Practice
Functional Movement class is for people struggling with recovery from injury, disease oriented
movement issues, age related issues, coordination issues that are habitual or related to injury. The class is also for those interested in exploring a larger range of movement options than they have in the past.
We use simple movements beginning with the arms and head, working through the body to the legs, seated in a chair and standing at the ballet barre. We use chairs, the ballet barre, fitness balls and other simple tools to help the students with their specific issues. No student is pushed to work beyond their ability, rather they are encouraged to work towards better mobility, flexibility and stamina.
"Kinesis" Sensory Motor and Coordination practice is used in all three of these classes. But, in Kinesis class, we concentrate specifically on spatial movement patterning to redevelop everyday movements that due to injury illness or simply loss of movement from lack of practice. as a form a facilitated movement class.
The class draws directly from the Laban Bartenieff Movement systems another techniques. We incorporate Basic Human Fundamental Movements, Body Shaping, Spatial Pathways, Phrasing, & Movement Dynamics. We use props such as balls, bands and light weights to assist practice.
Fitness for class/classes are for people who are healthy to moderately disabled, thus able to get up off of the floor by themselves if they need to. Like the TMC class, this class will concentrate upon core strength, alignment, flexibility, posture,
balance and coordination. How-ever, it is meant for people who are more able to handle more load and stamina.
This class uses balls, bands, weights and other props to achieve increase fitness.
