Healing Through Movement

Our bodies are the most powerful tools we'll ever have access to, and the more we know about them, the better.  Developing a greater understanding of how our bodies work, especially during our Pilates practice, is one of the keys to whole health.

At Pain Free Posture MN we specialize in the practice of Restorative and Therapeutic Pilates instruction. 

Many people who suffer from chronic pain or are in need of rehabilitation can get lost in a cycle where movement hurts, therefore the fear of moving escalates and the pain prohibits the body from moving.  The pain gets worse, and the person does not get the opportunity or knowledge needed to heal.  We believe in the body’s innate ability to heal itself, given the proper information, exercises and opportunity.

The approach we take to Pilates focuses on spinal mobility, local stabilization, improving kinesthetic awareness and proprioception, and nurturing the process of healing in mind, body and spirit.  We assess movement patterns and teach our clients proper muscle recruitment patterns.  We teach your body how to return to its original blue-print design and make moving a pleasure and PAIN FREE!
