I don’t have a movement background. I didn’t grow up playing sports and I’ve spent most of my life behind a desk.

I came to fitness and dance later in life after a debilitating motorcycle accident shattered my right leg. At the time, I was told that I’d never walk “normally” again let alone dance, run, or otherwise move freely again. That was a hefty sentence for a 19-year-old!

Through years of trial and error creating a movement practice first for myself and later for my students, I unlearned, learned, and relearned what it meant to move my body.

On my journey to move better, I found many teachers who were beautiful movers that had no idea how their bodies were moving in space. I found other teachers/coaches that did understand how to explain their movement but struggled to help students with chronic injuries, differently-sized or differently-abled bodies, or basically anyone who didn’t have a basic movement background access the same success as more able-bodied students.

To achieve the results that I wanted, I had to become the coach that I was looking for and understand from a practical (rather than clinical) perspective how to help myself first and then later my own students.

Mobility Matters is the result!

TESTIMONIALS

I love your classes!  I feel like your weekly classes combined with my monthly bodywork/massage appointments, has my body in it’s best “recovery” state it’s ever been in.  Sure, I may still pull something the wrong way (I’m in my 40s, it’s bound to happen!), but I feel like I have more tools now to help me get back on track sooner.  Definitely notice more range of motion in many of the exercises we frequently revisit as well as in my ability to wrap myself around the pole.  I guess, really, that’s the thing – I never quite realize how much my body needed some sort of relief/stretch/alignment until class is over and I feel the positive effects as soon as I walk off the mat.

I’ve been taking Mobility Matters classes with Colleen for a couple months now. Not only do I love how loose & relaxed I feel afterwards but my body awareness has increased. I’m more mindful of my body’s connections & joints during normal daily activities and especially when I pole. One big bonus factor… my carpal tunnel has completed disappeared because of the wrist exercises Colleen has you do! I was having uncomfortable wrist pain to the point that I was wearing wrist guards every night. Now, no more wrist pain and no more ugly wrist guards! lol

In Colleen’s Mobility Matters class I realized WTF my body was actually doing and WHY I have some of the issues I have had over the years and why I could never progress with pole. After about 2 months of Mobility Matters privates with Colleen I decided to take baby steps to RELEARN Pole from the beginning with PROPER body alignment and shoulder engagement for MY BODY….I’m now starting over and LOOK LOOK at that genuine smile of hope and happiness.
