What we're about

This is a group for people who love to be active in their lives, want to feel and look fit as well like the idea of meditation but haven't been able to find a way to settle to it. Think Yoga meets Pilates meets Deep Tissue Massage - and Block Therapy and Fluid isometrics may be for you. This practice is born of the breakthrough research in human anatomy and more specifically how the human body's fascia network determines the health, strength, and vigor in the body. So this is a group for people who are curious and want to understand and feel the power in how their body feels, reacts, recovers and delivers. This is a physical workout for individuals - no two bodies are built identically and you will learn about yours from the 1st time you experience blocking. Why do we get stuck in our bodies? What does fascia have to do with it? I am an experienced certified Block Therapy teacher and therapist trained by the program founder Deanna Hansen (Certified Athletic Therapist). What is Block Therapy? A workout & self-care practice. I put you in charge with how to release deep fascia restrictions & adhesion's using sweet cedar Block Buddys' that remove chronic stuck pain/tension in your body. Learn diaphragmatic breathing and embodied meditation. Build back strength with smooth easy mobility, improve in your sport of choice, move past old pain and restriction and be effortlessly free in your body- that's why I do it. Deep physical release, embodied meditation and resilience. Appropriate for all levels of fitness.

Unique in Montreal, the new studio is located west of the trendy Monkland Village. Each class has solutions to offer. Here are some of the classes we work through.

We meet in our gently heated studio (dry not humid). Wear stretchy yoga style clothes. Bring your curiosity, humor to help build awareness of your body feedback. As we go through the session, you will learn diaphragmatic breathing and exercise your brains' neuroplasticity as your brain rewires and relaxes. I lead you through a series of sequential positions & isometrics on the handcrafted wooden blocks, deeply rejuvenating and melting fascia (think deep tissue massage with you in total control - not the masseuse)

FYI Month of April is Legs and Feet- freedom from pain, mobility, and sculpting! Think pilates meets yoga meets deep tissue massage - you really have to experience the deep release to believe it. Plus for woman over 40? Well, this practice checks a lot of wellness boxes there. Shapes and tones the body, glowing skin happens, reduce stress and chronic aches/pains. Kicks up your metabolism, while being low impact and creating long lean muscles through isometrics. Initially, I provide the Block Buddys and guide us through the positions and self-care techniques on the block. We hold compression's for 3 min, use diaphragmatic breathing and as we progress we add strengthening isometrics and toning along the way. The diaphragmatic breathing and encouraged inquiry into your body's' feedback is the 1st step towards an embodied meditation. Over time the meditation aspect just clicks in when you are on the block. The practice will reawaken the Trust in your body to be there for you. Over time, our fascia binds layer over layer through injury, aging, posture, and habits. If we allow this to develop, eventually fat builds up, disease settles in, and aches and pains become chronic. Getting unstuck in your body delivers a heady sense of sheer freedom! Tone and shape into healthy fascia fitness. Block Therapy works deep in the fascia layers releasing old scar tissue, deep fascia adhesions and knots creating glorious lean length and strength.
