I am Rebecca, I am passionate about researching, analyzing and coaching efficient movement and running. Understanding how bodies move and WHY they might have restriction or pain. By assessing biomechanics and reflexive health, we can learn the root cause of your movement patterns, to help reawaken the body to occupy new space, lose restriction and find fluidity. For optimal, everyday movement, skilful, intelligent running and natural movement fitness.

If we can bring back the fundamental, biological movements that our body might be missing, we can find more freedom, efficiency and ease with everything we do. Regaining your autonomy, building more confidence and strength, regardless of your age, size or skill level, is empowering.

I live and work in the incredible natural setting of the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana Mountains, Mallorca, Spain. Immersing in nature as you learn not only feels good, but amplifies your learning.

After completing numerous trainings in different movement practices and disciplines, and years of experience coaching the methodology of natural and barefoot running, I have now come to the realisation that many people need to go back the ‘root cause’ of WHY they might not be able to move well in everyday life.

So before we get you running, with the increased loads associated, let’s get back to the fundamental, basic, primitive movements for human locomotion, and see what might be missing in your range.

We will assess how you move now, and what spaces your brain and body don’t occupy. Through no fault, just years of moving in other ways. Movement patterns that have been created, from whatever life has thrown at you.

Once new stimuli is introduced, and your sensory system reawakens, you will discover a more fluid, synchronised body for all types of movement.

As a PFM coach (Perpetual Forward Motion School of Efficient Running) I share their philosophy… “Let your body run you…” So let’s find a body that moves as a synchronized whole, all parts communicating with each other, without having to think, force or punish yourself to move, walk or run.

TESTIMONIALS

RUNNING

My experience with Rebecca and her barefoot coaching has completely shifted my training into a new gear. Having been a runner for years, I’d been plagued with several small injuries and pains, which would persistently crop up as soon as I increased my intensity or distance. I thought it was just a normal part of running and I just needed to rest and recover. However after training with Barefoot Mallorca, I have been running without pain or injury and have therefore been able to run more consistently, for longer and faster.

Rebecca explains and teaches in clear, understandable terms that are easy to follow and implement. The physical, practical and interactive way in which the training session unfolds is helpful, instructive and fun. I believe Rebecca’s background in yoga gives her an even deeper understanding of alignment and the way in which the body is supposed to move, I feel this gives her a unique advantage over other barefoot coaches and I definitely feel that my barefoot running training benefitted hugely from her broad knowledge and experience. I would recommend Rebecca and her teaching of the barefoot method unreservedly.

I heard of Rebecca’s bare foot running course just at a time when I was starting to run on a regular basis. I was having some troubles with lower leg pain and had also heard lots of stories of people damaging their knees from repeated road running, not something I liked the sound of. I decided to learn about barefoot running to see if it could help me.

Rebecca has an excellent understanding of the mechanics of human running and was quickly able to explain the advantages of the natural running technique. As with most things in life it is often the natural form that is best, but this is so often pushed aside by other technological claims that are often less advantageous, and frequently driven by fashion or marketing, such as a tradition.

I have been a regular runner since school, and I used to run competitively, so I always thought that my running style wasn’t that bad, but I was curious to see if going barefoot could make such a difference.

In my first session, Rebecca used a ‘before & after’ video comparison that completely changed how I think about my running position. The difference is dramatic, and I know I won’t be going back to my old ways!

Rebecca has a relaxed, yet professional approach, and she draws on her experience as a yoga teacher to make you aware of your posture, and shows how you can improve whatever your level. I recommend her highly.

YOGA

I’ve practised yoga on and off for several years in many different countries around the world. Rebecca is hands down the best yoga teacher I’ve come across. She challenges you, pushes you, makes you feel confident and does it all with a smile and flare of her own. Can’t wait until I return to Palma to head back to her classes!”

Rebecca’s sunset yoga sessions are such a treat for my week. She has an energy that instantly creates trust within her students, every week I witness her empowering another person into their first handstand! Her style is testing and pushing yet set within a nurturing and safe atmosphere. I particularly enjoy her grounding speeches at the beginning of class, they are magically insightful and intuitive and always seem to relate to something going on in my life. She has an incredible ability to remind me to let go, focus in on the present moment and enjoy the yoga.
