Welcome to MOVE WELL ED
Driving School for Your Body
This is not a new exercise routine, it's as mindset shift towards healthspan.
This is education.
This is not about max rep deadlifts.
This is about working with the design of your human body and creating durability.
This is understanding how much power and control you have.
This is empowerment.
“There are more doctor visits for musculoskeletal issues from exercisers than there are from non-exercisers. Exercise is now a risk factor for health, not for fitness. We’ve put fitness on movement dysfunction when moving well, before moving often, should be the priority.” Gray Cook, Physical Therapist, co- creator, FMS
You are not broken, nor injury “prone."
Your body is not a failure and you are not any of the worst things you’ve ever done to yourself.
In addition, pain does not necessarily mean physical damage.
You just need to re-connect to moving well and understand that before there was "exercise", we emerged as perfectly tuned human movers.
Physical therapists and orthopedic doctors agree - most musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction can be distilled down to poor movement understanding.
Move Well Ed. will upgrade your entire life.
WHAT ATHLETES ARE SAYING:
"My back has been feeling really good. All spasms have stopped and my range of motion has increased. I’ve been back to lifting weights with more knowledge and I plan to pick up my training again soon. The movement education you provide has helped me fill in a few blindspots I never knew I had until my lower back started bothering me. Your Move Well Ed. program saved me a costly trip down the medical path and I’m confident it’s going to prevent pain for me in the future because my body awareness has increased so much." —Jason P. competitive athlete, Cleveland, OH
I’ve spent the majority of my life fascinated with the human body. In a word, I am a teacher. I teach how learning just a little bit of your movement biomechanics can sometimes solve big problems and upgrade your life in many ways. I use rehabilitative techniques, functional strength training and self therapies including yoga and SMFR (self-myofascial release) as the core of my toolbox to help people better understand and resolve their own pain, prevent injury and to live with greater self confidence at any age.
My work is valued by top performers in many fields: professional athletes and coaches, top doctors, business leaders and entertainers who’ve popularized the growing field of performance care. They know that how well you move (and rest) matters. They value investing in the personalization of this work to affect their lives immediately.
Being a healthy human for the long game requires a set of *skills* and this fact is extremely underserved within fitness and yoga communities. Let’s get beyond your foam roll and get you back to doing what you love with more self knowledge and less restrictions.

MOVE WELL ED. IS IDEAL FOR:
Active people who are prevention and longevity focused and who consider themselves life-long learners. You might be dealing with various, unexplainable aches and pains or simply want to prevent them.
Sidelined people who are stepping down from physical therapy after an injury and need to break through fear and timid movements to get back to the routine faster and more confident.
Athletes and coaches (pros, college, high school, recreational and fitness) who want to increase self knowledge, gain a vast toolbox of athletic recovery (including mindset help & yoga), get CEC’s and gain new warm-up/down routines to keep your players away from the medical path.
No matter where you see yourself in the lists above, my overarching goal is to help you maximize the amazing, self-correcting, self-healing body in which you were born.
WHAT COACHES ARE SAYING:
"Our athletes were intimidated by the idea of us bringing in a yoga teacher to work with them on flexibility. Sandy brings yoga skills but beyond – working with therapy balls, stretch bands, doable relaxation techniques and she taught our players how to use their dorm room beds, pillows, desks and walls – to help our athletes recover in between practices. Her creativity in making 'yoga' accessible to our student athletes is unbelievable!"
WHAT GRADS ARE SAYING:
"I signed up for Sandy’s Move Well Ed. program to improve my golf game and recover from knee replacement. During the screen, she noticed my neck lacked some range of motion so she explained to me why this was important to address and included that in my programming. Not only did she help me get back on the golf course, but working on my neck has given me more confidence to be driving a car as a senior citizen. Simply relying on the bells and whistles of my car is not enough to keep me and my loved ones safe – I need to be able to turn my head. And my golf swing is better than ever. " Sam H. physician/golfer, Cleveland, OH
