"After my daughter's birth, I really felt I needed help and guidance to recover my inner strength. In 3 months, I could do my first pull up ever. Just the feeling of lifting my own weight gave me so much joy and confidence, which rippled into my professional work.

Thanks to Jonathan's expertise and care, I feel stronger than I was before my pregnancy. His Primal movements are a hidden gem for new mothers. It gives them the building blocks to re-activate the body in a way that it is safe, intelligent and freeing. "

“At 6 months pregnant, I was experiencing lower back and sciatic nerve pain. The primal movements Jonathan taught me provided immediate relief and felt cleansing and refreshing. as I settled into a relaxed state, the baby perked up and did some happy dancing.  

During my third trimester I found myself losing sleep from general discomfort. The Energy medicine Jonathan did while I was 8 months pregnant was BY FAR the most relief and relaxation I felt during the third trimester, and afterwards I fell into a spontaneous, deep sleep. “

"I lost 11 pounds and 4.25 inches from my waste in 1 month! And after 10 weeks, I’m now down 26 pounds. But the most surprising thing about Jonathan's "Primal Shred" program is how gentle yet powerful the movements are; they aren't hard and feel good.

I'm stronger, have clearer skin, better digestion, and feel light hearted and energetic. Plus I'm standing taller. I hadn't been able to lose weight in years, but now I'm beginning to imagine that I actually can be fit."

— Kristy K.

“The most surprising thing about working with Jonathan was learning the ways I could work out that were fun instead of a chore, even stuff I could do at home. I gained strength, confidence, and overall wellness just by learning to do a little bit of movement every day. Incredibly, the physical and emotional resilience I gained through his training directly helped me overcome some issues with addiction, and for that I am deeply grateful.”

“The primal movements Jonathan taught me are unlike any other exercise I’ve done before and helped me heal a lower back injury with sciatic nerve pain.

As a veteran runner of 30 years and gym junkie, I was surprised to feel worked out after a primal session because the movements are quite gentle.  

I’m now running again and training for a marathon. I now know how to get a great workout without excess intensity.  The practice feels so good, like untying knots in my muscles!  And it gives me better body awareness, helps me avoid injuries, and keeps  me running pain free. “

"The simple energy meditation Jonathan taught me has made such an amazing impact on my life. By simply doing 5 minutes of breath work every morning I am able to tune in, listen to my body, and define a specific intention for the day.

I am more grounded, honest with myself, and have clearer thoughts thanks to this practice. It has even affected my relationships as my communication and social understanding has positively shifted.

It’s crazy how one little change can impact your entire life.”

— Karin O’Gara
