Holistic Movement


High intensity has it's proper place, but most people's lives in NYC and stress level are already intense, so adding fuel to the fire (by doing typical “no pain no gain” type workouts) will only bring you further out of balance… and further from your goals.

Most people are burned out and over eating to manage their excess stress. By prioritizing healing the body and balancing your hormones naturally - using gentle movement, breath, awareness, and the skillful use of food - you will get better, quicker, sustainable results, something that is impossible for people who keep trying so hard to be healthy and fit.

We aren’t born with an owner’s manual for the body. Did you know that movement can:

  • Balance your hormonal cycle.

  • Relieve emotional stress.

  • Massage the internal organs.

  • Decrease pain, sickness, and boost the immune system.

  • Release trauma and heal old injuries.

  • Cool down chronic inflammation.

Pure Strength is built on a foundation of health. If the foundation isn’t solid, the body of your dreams will forever remain elusive. Luckily, holistic movement is a wonderful way to build your foundation while learning the principles needed to take your fitness to new levels.

As you recover your vitality, movement becomes more about Pleasure and less about pain.

That’s right; just like when you were a kid, the urge to explore, express, and challenge yourself through movement will be intrinsically motivated, no discipline required. And if you enjoy moving, it’ll be easy to move every day… and every single health and fitness goal requires moving regularly. This balanced, empowering, and deeply holistic approach to movement is at the core of all of my programs.

Come learn how to take your foot off the gas pedal of life, get further faster, and enjoy the ride. #LessIsMore

Life a fragrant flower opening towards to the light rays of the sun, our bodies have the ability to inspire, open, and flourish in the right conditions.

Our subtle life force - “qi” - is guided along the bodies meridian channels. When unobstructed, this network of consciousness creates vitality, fertility, and effortless strength. Trauma, excess tension, and even habitual thoughts and addiction all create blockages, preventing the flow of qi and creating the conditions for disease, dysfunction, and injury.

Group Training

 
 

All disease and dysfunction occur first at a subtle energy level and from there ripple outward to the physical body. By unblocking the energy meridians, we are able to let the “chi” or life force flow throughout the body. Addressing the root cause of our imbalances allows us to heal from the inside out.
