Movement Intelligence:

Fascia Mobility, Movement, and

Bones for Life (R).

  This class, focuses on the incredible work of Dr. Ruthy Alon, who developed Bones for Life (R) from her extensive work with the incredible Moshe Feldenkrais in order to help women and men suffering from osteoporosis. Ruthy noticed that when the body finds its alignment in space and comes back into agreement with gravity the bones within us strengthen, pain decreases, and the body begins to ENJOY moving. In this transformative work, backed by science and thousands of hours of global experience, is truly life changing. 

Your Instructor: Rachel Lee, former dancer and dance educator, discovered Bones work while recovering from surgery with Cheryl at Drake Advanced Myofascial, and found a missing link in the trajectory of the hypermobile body from disability to ability.  She began training the very next year and is thrilled to bring these first sessions to the Umi Wellness community as a FREE opportunity to find joy in your movement again! 

Rachel has completed all 3 segments of the Bones training program, will graduate this summer, and is  pursuing ongoing and mentoring with Movement Dialogues in Charlotte, NC. 

Bones work is suitable for all ages, though these classes are currently bent towards children 12+.  Bones is excessively gentle, and Rachel brings to these classes personal experience with EDS complications such as tethered cord, craniocervical instability, joint dislocation, POTS, MALS and much more.  

Classes are offered in 6 week or 8 weeks blocks with rest periods between.

Most classes have both in-person and online options! There is much you can do from the comfort of your home.
