Hi, I’m 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 human movement through the lens of gait, using closed-chain biomechanics, and paying particular attention to the role of your feet and your reflexive health, we can learn the ‘root cause’ of your movement patterns that might be causing restriction or pain.
Working with your body we reawaken neural pathways, helping the body access and occupy space, to lose restriction and find fluidity and ease. Discovering optimal, everyday movement; efficient, intelligent running; and ultimate strength, fitness and conditioning, through fundamental human movement.
My philosophy - if we can move well, as our physiology intended, we will generally feel well.
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 to 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, and what spaces your brain and body don’t occupy. Through no fault, simply years of moving in other ways. Movement patterns that have been created, from whatever life has thrown at you. Learning to understand your body, instead of blaming it.
Once new stimuli is introduced, and your sensory system reawakens, you will discover a more fluid, synchronised body for all types of movement.
After training with the brilliant Helen Hall, as a PFM coach (Perpetual Forward Motion School of Efficient Running) I share the philosophy… “Let your body run you…” So let’s find a body that moves as a synchronized whole, in balance, alignment and harmony. All parts communicating, without having to think, force or punish yourself to move, walk or run.
