Sometimes massage gets people out of pain. Sometimes chiropractic or acupuncture gets people out of pain. And sometimes Claudia gets people out of pain.
When I think about Claudia doing her thing next door at BFit, I see her leading a class of world class athletes who are sweating and cursing while she’s doing the exercises alongside of them, breathing easily with a smile on her face. She’s a badass.
But that’s just one aspect to the work she does. She excels in one on one rehab work with people who want to get out of pain, or people who just want to get in better shape and develop more endurance.
Recently I had a client who I had been trying to help with some chronic hip issues over many months. She had been going to chiropractic as well and still could get no relief. And it goes without saying that we can straighten you out, balance your energy meridians, and soften your tissue till the cows come home, but if you are not moving well, or if you go right out and get back into your same old hurtful movement (as well as thought and emotional) patterns, you are not going to get better.
That’s where Claudia comes in. She teaches people how to move well.
After our client went to see Claudia for a while, her pain was gone. Why? Because Claudia worked with her to train her body to move better.
Claudia has a background in dance and has been doing some volunteer yoga work with the women’s prison, inspired by the Prison Yoga Project.
I’ll be doing another, more in depth piece about what Claudia has been up to. She inspires me so. But for now, if you want to learn more about how you can incorporate better movement into your life to help you get out of pain, watch the BFit Fayetteville Facebook Page for her next FREE Foundation Training event. Or better yet, hit her up for some one on one training. She’s the best.
