Every session feels like a massage for my muscles and a natural high for my brain. ... I feel taller and spiritually uplifted. -Marin Client, 2015
Ana is an incredibly effective teacher and her sessions go beyond the norm. She works with her clients to change their lives for the better. Not only do her clients benefit from her vast knowledge base and experience, but her unique ability to reach her students on the deepest of levels no matter what their experience or injuries may be is unparalleled in her field.
Ana brings her students into greater relationship with their own bodies, so that they are empowered to heal and do more than they thought possible. She understands the link between emotional/mental health, and the body's dynamic healing process. Through her decade-long relationship with many of her clients, and her own healing process, Ana knows the intricacies of creating real body skills and moving out of chronic pain into compassionate body awareness. Her classes focus on core strength, flexibly, alignment and coordination. She achieves this by helping students perceive and strengthen key aspects of their anatomy that have previously eluded them. This kind of proprioception takes an intelligent approach and a dedicated client.
Ana's proven practice combines fundamental elements of Pilates, Alexander technique, somatic experiencing, and multiple forms of dance. She draws from her deep understanding of movement anatomy, dance technique and years of teaching experience with all levels to create a comprehensive and accessible class.
The focus is on the foundation of what all bodies need to stay healthy and be active! Effective core training, spinal articulation, hip stability/mobility and upper body strength will all be addressed, along with proper alignment and stretching. Ana's class empowers her students to understand their own bodies, heal themselves and get really strong. Her goal is to educate and enable her students to refine these techniques and become more productive, resilient and balanced in the process.
