“I very much enjoy the classes. Alana has a very gentle and calming spirit. She is very thorough in teaching and takes time to explain if needed.” Rosalie
“I love your class, not only are you completely suited to this but, you draw a class of people that are also suited to this. I not only go to your class because my back feels better, but, the atmosphere is so freeing.

Our brain and muscles learn a maladaptive movement pattern just like the detour in the route. This allows us to do our daily tasks accommodating this stressor to our soma.[Read more…] about Sensory Motor Amnesia
