The Technical Stuff
My name is Ashlee Cooper. I have been the owner of Reforming Movement (formerly North Hills Pilates) since 2009. My trainings and certifications, in no particular order, include: AiM Finding Centre Immersion (3 times so far, it’s my main practice since 2016), Pilates Certification Center, Polestar Pilates, Pilates Method Alliance Certified Practitioner, DNS Exercise Level 1, NKT Level 1 and 2, The Franklin Method, Scolio-Pilates, Pilates for MS, Pilates for Parkinson’s.
Your body belongs to you. It is yours and you own it. You move it, you rest it, you treat it well, or not. You and you alone are responsible for it. And my guess is that no one has told you that you are going to have to “fix” it yourself.
Nobody else can fix you. No one. Sorry. Chances are you are dealing with a recurring or chronic problem. You’ve maybe even been here and there (doctors, pt’s, chiro’s, massage, etc) trying figure it out. But, your knee pain, or back pain, or wrist pain didn’t “just happen”. I can assure you, you’ve been working on receiving that pain signal for a while.
The exception to this is an injury, of course. If you fell yesterday, all your bits may hurt today as a result. Otherwise, what you are feeling is your doing (it is YOUR body, isn’t it?). You moved your way into it and you will have to move your way out of it. Ignorance will no longer be an excuse. I hear A LOT of “but I didn’t know.” I know, I didn’t either. But now I do, so off I go. And educating you is where I aim to help.
My plan is not to retain you, but to set you free. My job is to show you the way. However, you will have to own it and do the work. You will have to work on yourself, you will have to notice yourself, you will have to experience yourself, you will have to BE yourself. Not everyone is up for it, and that’s ok too. But if you are, we are going to have a fabulous time!
