What moves you? Movement is an essential part of the human experience. At Movement U, we are dedicated to helping you identify what moves you and then optimizing your journey — what we call achieving the Nth degree — whatever your goal might be.
We work to achieve these performance and function milestones through a variety of methods. While our award-winning work in Pilates continues to be a mainstay, our faculty is also educated in many new methods and modalities. Some of these techniques include Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and Z-Health as well as other research-based work. Try out one class and you might see runners who want to improve gait or a golfer working on better rotation for his swing. Observe another class and see a father learning how to lift his child pain-free or someone who wants to get out of their car with ease.
The “U” is both in reference to our ability to personalize programs for each individual (you), and to our faculty of movement specialists. If Pilates is already an important part of your program, you’ll find our teachers offer extensive knowledge and diverse educational backgrounds to both challenge and support your movement goals. If someone has told you you couldn’t do something, or you’re beginning to believe discomfort and pain “is part of the deal”, we would like to encourage you to safely (re)explore the joy of movement.
We are nestled within Body Kinetics, a welcoming, family-owned health and fitness facility, whose mission is to assist and educate those seeking high caliber movement practices. Our company offers an integrated model in which our Movement U faculty work collaboratively with each of our departments to help ensure your care is comprehensive and continues to help you find your Nth degree.
Our expert faculty offers a diverse educational background, all with rigorous training in a variety of disciplines, including Pilates, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and Z-Health as well as other research-based work. Beyond the extensive education, we are proud that our faculty has the expertise, skill set and commitment to innovate and adapt the Pilates exercise system to best benefit your specific situation and needs.
While we are proud of our faculty’s mastery in Pilates and of all the times we’ve been named “Best of Marin”, but really, the way we prefer to grade ourselves is based on the number of Nth degrees our students achieve in a year. That’s what comes when we work together to meet–and perhaps exceed–your movement goals.
