Yoga Class with Gwen
A unique experience, she is the highest-level teacher for decades and offers classes designed for the specific needs of the participant. She is clear and concise with her teachings, mixes humor and lightness and approaches the student more as a yoga coach.
Gwen’s classes take into consideration the students health status (rehab etc.). She can work closely with doctors and trainers to design the more comprehensive routines for your needs.
Although Gwen prefers to be proactive to health rather than reactive to injury, she is very well versed in working with all abilities and limitations.
Considerations for participant/students are:
• Health level
• Ability level
• Anxiety stress level
• Where you are in the training cycle/season.
• What sport you play or job you have?
• What position you play?
• What common injuries are associated with your line of work?
All the above have proven to provide outstanding results. Gwen’s mission is not only to be proactive to health but to be part of the team to better assure you:
-Streamline your breathing
Private assessment with Gwen remotely – $500
Online assessment done via email – $400
Assessments must be done privately. It is a personal process. It can be done in two ways.
It is a 1 to 3 time process. The initial assessment is an overall evaluation of the student’s symmetry, body balance, anxiety level, past injuries. The student is then given a “yoga RX” to practice then if the student would like a re-evaluation in 8-10 weeks to gauge progress and alter the “RX” and once again in another 8-10 weeks.
For many years I have had the privilege of
analyzing posture, imbalances, and asymmetries online with people for all over the world.
Ask yourself the COST of Doctor appointments, lost game time, and potentially lost scholarships and jobs…it is time to act!
This opportunity is for Athletes from the Professional level all the way through collegiate, high school and little leaguers not to mention corporate industrialists.
If you have been plagued by aches, pains and discomforts and feel like there is a piece missing to your puzzle that allows you to workout, stay fit or be a weekend warrior, the answer may lie in your structure.
I have had the miraculous opportunity in my life and career to work with the best of the best in the athletic world, from Olympic champions, Super Bowl Champs, World Series Dominators, and the list goes on.
The key to my success and longevity working with such greatness is my keen ability to analyze posture and identify key imbalances that can not only hold them back but manifest into injury, if you are training with an imbalance, you are OVERWORKING and actually training the imbalance to get worse and damage your body and results.
I always like to explain it this way:
If your car was misaligned, you clearly understand the ramifications of that, it is less efficient using more gas than necessary to get where you wanted to go, and if you were going to go on a road trip or just drive each day on this misaligned car…you would wear and wear on the misaligned tire until…one day, guaranteed, it would BANG, blow.
Well, it is the same scenario with your body BUT most people take better care of their cars than their bodies. Silly right? But true! Oil changes, brake checks alignments, tune-ups, and car washes all for our precious cars.
Try “Yoga with Gwen” if you are tired of aches and pains, tired of nagging injuries, (big and small) that sideline your progress or if you are frustrated by incomplete rehabs.
Most Physical Therapists are good. Some are great! They are amazing at treating the exact thing you are rehabbing.
For example, if you had knee surgery, they will do everything to get that knee back in tiptop shape.
Where PT misses the mark is that your body cannot possibly have a knee injury without effecting another part of your body and in most cases several parts of your body have compensated over time. PT does not cater to that. We are holistic (of the whole) beings that need full body evaluations.
Treatment plans that is where I come in! Many PT’s refer people to me as they work with them. The goal is to change your approach, your thinking, your results, and the way you see yourself. Be proactive with your body NOT reactive to injury and pain.
Since I simply cannot be everywhere in the world all the time, I needed to develop an online protocol so I can help as many people as I can, everywhere. Let me evaluate your body alignment and postural strengths and weaknesses.
