At our cozy Pilates and bodywork studio in San Mateo, CA, we offer a variety of hands-on and instructional approaches. Our methods range from Pilates to Anat Baniel Method of Feldenkrais with techniques that enhance the body’s natural healing ability and help our clients overcome lingering chronic pain and discomfort.
Anat Baniel Method of Feldenkrais (Neuro-Movement®) and Pilates methods
Anat Baniel Method of Feldenkrais (Neuro-Movement®) has proven to be very effective for various neuromuscular conditions, chronic pain relief and functional improvement. It includes both hands-on sessions along with exercise classes for adults and children.
Pilates is good for rebuilding strength, balance and mobility. We integrate Pilates exercises with ABM work to amplify and reinforce its benefits. We offer private, semi-private and small group Pilates sessions at our fully equipped studio in San Mateo.
Working with children with special needs
Children with Special Needs greatly benefit from Anat Baniel Method. The method has proven to be very effective and we are honored to have this opportunity to help children with special needs and their parents. Olga received a Children Mastery certification in Anat Baniel Method.
Sedentary lifestyle and occupation-related conditions
A Sedentary lifestyle adds a big risk factor for many physical and neurological injuries in addition to other problems that come with prolonged sitting or other repetitive activity. In order to successfully help clients, Mark integrates all our methods as part of a full transformation from a “chronic sitter” with aches, pains and lack of energy to a pain-free, agile and successful client.
Natural chronic pain relief
Our core principle is not to force any improvements. Most of the people with chronic conditions are not ready to be “fixed” because they are not the same as they used to be. Unfortunately, that is what chronic conditions do to us.
The focus of our work is to acquire new movement patterns and reacquire long-lost skills. We have very powerful and world-recognized training techniques to help us.
