Oh just blog it! Things I learned at Certification Week with Nutritious Movement

Some may know that I’ve been spending almost the last two years working toward certification in Restorative Exercise™ with Nutritious Movement. A couple of weeks ago, I attended certification week at the Nutritious Movement Center in Sequim. For teachers we had (most of) the staff from Alignment B.E.A.C.H. – Breena Maggio, Tim Harris, and Michael Kaffel – as well as Katy Bowman and Michael Curran (check here for pics of them!) All week long! Plus, I was with a group of like minded people who are all working to better themselves in their bodies, so that they too can help others. In short, I thought I had died and gone to heaven! 🙂

I’ve been lax on putting all my thoughts and learnings to paper (or computer, in this day and age). But, I have made a few posts about it on Instagram (because a picture is worth a thousand words, but could also use some elaboration ;)). So in lieu of a blog post, I’m sharing links from my IG page @movewellmovemore. Explanations are in the linked photos.

It will be a few months before I am fully certified (have some other requirements to fill) but when I am, I’ll be offering sessions. And will continue exploration because one should never stop learning!

BTW, eventually, I’ll be moving most of this content to a new website – movewellmovemore. Stay tuned!
