WHAT PEOPLE SAID LAST TIME
Hey Justin, I absolutely looooved the workshop! It was awesome and I haven’t stopped raving about it !
If you've been thinking about trying it or have never heard of it, do yourself a wonderful favor and do it! Join Justin and Beth and do something amazing for yourself!
The combination of release with the Block and Beth’s functional movement exercises was powerful. It was like a really good massage! The time flew by and I can’t wait for the next session!
Posture Is the foundation of your future
If you ignore your posture today it will affect how you feel tomorrow. Ignore it for the next 5 years and feel the effects a decade from now.
You can't escape the constant role posture plays in how you feel, function and look.
Luckily, you are in control and can direct your posture to improve many aspects of your health.
With a little know how and some practice you can reverse a life-time of unconscious stances, bad habits and frustrated attempts at change.
This is me in 2015, holding my youngest son while we were on vacation. I had always had poor posture, especially in my teen years but pregnancy and mom life exacerbated it.
After taking my personal training certification and understanding the importance of posture and strength, I changed my life.
I fell down this rabbit hole of corrective movement, the kinetic chain, and the impact of poor posture with a focus on postpartum moms.
Life requires strength! To get strong safely and effectively we need to have good posture!

Spend Dedicated time with Beth
Beth will take you through the kinetic chain, starting from the feet and moving all the way to the head, making key pit-stops at the pelvis (one of her her specialties!) and core to check on your breath and more!
Beth will help you identify which muscles are not engaging properly and how to get everything moving again so you can fire key stabilizers that help keep you straight and strong.
Learning to strengthen the body is important. Learning to strengthen the body in correct alignment while engaging all your muscles is a game changer!
This was me in the fall of 2018. My back twisted, my pelvis tilted, my body in chaos - wondering why I was struggling with low back and hip pain!
Jump forward 7 months and I felt and looked straighter than I had in years. The pain I put up with for almost10 years finally subsided when I applied a new approach to health - fascia release combined with postural strengthening.
I've come to learn that posture is a dynamic and evolving process. We can choose to be conscious of it and move in a direction that feels good or we can remain unconscious and let the effects of poor posture show up in ways we don't like!

Let go of the tight, tense and sticky areas that are holding you in your current posture.
With an incredible ability to grip, fascia will pull and hold you out of alignment over the course of your lifetime and in order to release fascia at it's deepest attachments, you need a special approach!
Justin will show you how to do just that with Block Therapy as well as teach you how to breathe new life into these previously compressed areas as you strengthen your postural foundations.
Free yourself and strengthen in your new alignment so you don't fall back into the habits that pulled you down in the first place!
