Testimonials

I took the prenatal class due to hip/back pain and really enjoyed it.  It really helped me to make adjustments resulting in no pain! I enjoyed the prenatal class so much I took the postnatal class as well to further my learning and help me to better integrate the positions, exercises and stretches.  Thank you Susanne!

Susanne impressed me! Her reply to my brief email exceeded my expectations: specific clear questions to clarify my concern, attention to all details, and suggestions of a range of solutions.

When I met Susanne, every minute of her consultation was valuable to me : she is an exceptional listener, a talented educator, and an attentive expert. She informed me without  judging, preaching or imposing one way of solving complex factors that impacted my ability to be physically fit. She picked right exercises and tailored them to my current condition without overwhelming me. I learnt to  understand my body and listen to it, to relax where I used to get tense, to do movements that used to be outside of my abilities but are necessary for balance and painless posture. I feel better prepared for the approaching labor, baby/toddler carrying, and hiking with my older child. I am grateful to Susanne, and recommend her services a lot!

I particularly liked that Susanne was able to come to me, at my own house, and she was always very understanding and flexible (being a mother herself). I also appreciated her adaptability in finding real-life practical movement solutions - no special equipment or infinite space needed!
Susanne helped me realize that I don't need to find more time in my day to do exercise; rather, if I am more mindful about the way I move (and don't move) through the day, it will be incredibly beneficial. And I don't need to make specific time to go to a gym to get in great shape!
I learned so much from my sessions with Susanne! Aside from the many stretches and natural movement exercises, she has taught me the importance of posture, technique and stance (I've even changed the way I get out of bed and sit on the toilet!) - and these seemingly tiny changes have made a huge impact.
All of this incredible knowledge is now being passed on to my family so that we can all enjoy healthy, active lives. Since my sessions with Susanne, I find we play (inside and out) together as a family more often. We go to the park, walk more, and have even built a set of monkey bars in our basement!

"I contacted Susanne after trying everything! I was uncomfortable and unhealthy. What I liked about working with Susanne was she tailored a program to me as a person - emotionally and physically. She asked me my goals and we set out to accomplish them together. Since working with Susanne I have accomplished those goals and have set new ones. I can now happily say I am pain and discomfort free and I feel better physically and emotionally. I think completely different about myself and how I live my life. My family can see this change in me. Before they were worried about me and now they don't have to."

I contacted Susanne in hopes that she would be able to help me with low back pain I was experiencing due in part to diastasis recti after my two pregnancies.  She helped me with that and so much more!  Susanne helped me change my standing and sitting posture and I have seen a significant decrease in the chronic low back pain I have experienced.  I am able to stand comfortably for long periods of time, which I have been unable to do for years. My pelvis, low back and abdomen are also far more relaxed than they have been in years. She gave me new tools and taught me new ways of thinking about my body that have helped me cope better with acute epidodes of pain. I really appreciate her calm and friendly demeanor and really enjoyed working with her.

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing course. I remained pain-free my entire pregnancy so long as I kept up with my stretches. The few times I didn't do them for a few consecutive days I would get the same pain in my hips as my first pregnancy but it would be quickly alleviated with stretching. (I ended up sleeping in a chair for the last several weeks with my previous pregnancy because my hips were in so much pain.) What a huge relief!! The interesting thing is that some of the stretches that I thought were the most basic of stretches and wouldn't really benefit me were the most beneficial - for instance, the pelvic list, calf (stretch) and the neutral neck. Who knew such small and basic movements could make such an enormous difference! Incredible!

(Our baby) was born on 18 July and although it was intense the birth went extremely well :) Now I just need to re-teach and really pay attention to my posture while carrying and breastfeeding babe as my back is definitely sore :( Good news is, that I know it can be easily alleviated and I don't have to just 'live with it'. THANK YOU! I tell everyone who will listen how much your restorative exercise class has changed my life :)

Our exercises from yesterday can be felt in my upper glutes, upper back muscles and thighs. I feel like this after a deep tissue massage. It feels great - incredible for just tiny movements! :)

The mom+baby class is a great opportunity to continue working on alignment at a time when your lifestyle is changing so much. As I was lifting and holding my baby all day without thinking, I found it essential to be reminded to do it right! The class is rather peaceful and a good, quiet environment for babies. Even though it was not as fast-paced as the prenatal 6-week session, we were working on different and often more challenging exercises, which I found deepened my knowledge of Restorative Exercise.
