Optimizing movement, performance & physical longevity.

my story

I believe MOVEMENT is the the best therapy and our most powerful tool. I am a self proclaimed “movement science geek” and my mission is to bring you high quality movement videos so you can begin your journey of FEELING GOOD and REACHING YOUR PHYSICAL POTENTIAL. I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years and have a clinical practice in North Vancouver where I use a combination of manual therapy, dry needling and movement. In addition, I am a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy. Locally, I teach group KINSTRETCH + DNS + FT classes and lead workshops for movement enthusiasts. I love teaching, am CONSTANTLY learning and am insanely curious about anatomy. All bodies and levels are welcome. I hope to see you soon!

Reviews for Movement 101

I really appreciate that this is not just a series of random stretches, but a very thorough progression to try to address the typical wonkiness in bodies ...After doing the week of hip classes I felt noticeable differences in day to day living and walking, it was pretty exciting!  Each class I’ve been able to feel a difference in being able to turn on my glutes and hamstrings which are pretty sleepy.   I’ve also really appreciated the information on breathing and core and feel more connected to my anterior abdominal muscles.

The level of details and cues make it feel as though we are in the same room. Fantastic job putting this together. I was amazed at how challenging it was ( in a good way)!

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your videos. I'm a professional ice hockey goalie and I've found your videos to be super beneficial for mobility and injury prevention.
