Simple Solutions for Back Pain is an easy set of practices and tips you can do at home or at work. The series has evolved through my personal journey of healing, rehabilitation and recovery, combining tested techniques used with my students.

These Pilates and Movement programs include: Foam Roller Progressions,  Back Care Progressions, and this most recent series, Simple Solutions for Back Pain.  I designed all of these programs to help you improve your balance, increase flexibility and strength, and correct your posture. And, most importantly, to feel well!

Why Create the Simple Solutions for Back Pain Series?

Many of you have asked me about my personal practices and how I manage my back, neck and shoulder pain, the result of multiple car accidents from my early twenties. The most serious happened within 18 months of each other, leaving me with severe injuries and chronic pain (read more of my story here).

My hope  for you is back pain relief, increased flexibility  and a stronger, more balanced body.  I hope to help you move out of pain and live with greater joy, ease and vitality.
