I am a full time Certified Wellness Coach and Movement Teacher. I do not specialize in the kind of Fitness you will do at the Gym, however there are several stretches and movements that complement that Protocol. What I offer is a more Holistic approach. Information that includes Super Foods, Practices to reduce Stress and Pain, prehab and rehab for surgery, practices that focus on Longevity and aging well that involve more flexibility and less of an emphasis on endurance and strength training. yin/yang patting, some Dao Yin exercises and some Ji Ben Gong Movements that are specific to Baguazhang. These movements will teach the body to become younger and are a great benefit in bringing Longevity into the body as you stretch the fascia and tendons. By developing a regular daily routine of correct and consistent practice, one may regain youthful vitality, maintain health, promote longevity and recover quickly from illness, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial, and lymph) and ...

Since that time he has continued to learn different energy healing practices from various teachers. His main concentration is in Medical and Spiritual Qi

Steve is one of the best teachers I have ever encountered, and he is far and away the best martial arts instructor I have ever had. Nothing can prepare you for the knowledge that Steve has accumulated. His methods are unorthodox, the focus of his classes are internal and related to expanding awareness and increasing body synergies within and with the surrounding environment. If you follow his methods, you will advance beyond your wildest imagination and become a better, more balanced human being in the process. He will work with you at whatever pace you desire, he is incredibly humble and he makes himself available to you well beyond the strictly class scheduled format. He has a literal treasure trove of research materials to help you along in your particular practice once he understands your learning objectives. I can not recommend a teacher any higher, and am honored to be his student.
Krishnaj G.
Steve really tailored the class to my needs. He throws in wit, humor and insight in his lessons. The fitness regimen he taught me is something that I can do everyday with relatively modest effort and time commitment. I am already seeing the benefits of practicing what he has taught me. I highly recommend his classes.
Debra
Steve contacted me before my first lesson to discuss what I expected from the session. I had only scheduled one lesson and wanted to try it out for myself and because I am enrolled in a graduate study program; I needed to try an alternative healing session so I could complete an assignment. I loved that Steve explained the movements and how they affected the internal body, mind, and spirit. He is a wealth of information and I plan on continuing to learn from him.

I m a female senior citizen of 75 yrs old and have suffered from chronic back pain and weak and stiff muscles. when I met Mary I fell in love with her. Her pleasant and warm disposition attracted me immediately. I liked the idea of her online training sessions, so I don’t have to travel to a gym. She is very patient with me and knows how to keep me motivated to continue exercising. She has changed my life and boost my desire to get better.
Mary is very talented with many years of experience in both Pilates and physical training and she is a beautiful ballet teacher as well! I highly recommend her !

Wow! I’ve been working with Davina for only six weeks and I’ve lost 15lbs! I’m a woman in my early 30’s getting ready for my wedding and I needed a trainer who was committed to my body type and keeping me accountable to an intense workout. I am truly grateful to have chosen Ms. Works, because she does just that while keeping it friendly. She’s made me comfortable, keeps me motivated, and has a great personality! I would DEFINITELY recommend her services!

"Kathy L: I started training with Patty in my early forties for quite a few years. I looked and felt the best I ever did in my life. When my daughter went to college I took a break because of finances. But I told Patty I would be back. Well it has been about five year and in June of this year I made the call I was thinking of making for months, asked Patty if she could fit me into her schedule. Thankfully yes. When I workout by myself I would make excuses, and my eating habits became terrible, and I gained weight. Patty got me back on track quickly. When I would make excuses she asked me when did I think I could get it together and it made me think. Patty said maybe if I got my eating under control with my workouts maybe other situations in my life would start to fall into place. Patty was right I already have started losing weight and other things in my life are falling into place. Patty is a
great trainer and motivator. I am glad Patty is in my life. P.S. I travel forty minutes to see her and it's worth it !!!"

"SHARLENE: I have been training with Patty since 1999. My body has changed quite a bit through the years working out with her. Patty has guided me through training slumps, weight fluctuations, injuries and menopause. She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of resistance training and cardiovascular training. Patty teaches you the proper form to use while preforming an exercise to maximize the benefit to the muscle as well as to prevent injury. Over the years I have watched Patty study for additional certifications to improve her skills as a trainer and educate herself on new information and techniques in may areas. I have always been impressed with her drive, talent and skills. I highly recommend Patty as a trainer"

"What makes the Skype workout so convenient is, that I can literally get up, go to the living room and start my workout. I do not have to leave my home and that makes it so much easier to continue on with exercise. It is the perfect amount of working out. After 40 sessions with Patty, I always still come out feeling great. This workout has made such a difference in my life style and my body!! Ryan S."
