Working alongside physiotherapist Julie Paul, Holly takes a whole-body approach to regaining strength, stability and confidence. Our approach is not only on the site of injury but also on breathing patterns, better alignment and better quality of movement to support your body through healing and prevent re-injury. We use a gentle and mindful approach to help you find just the right exercises at just the right amount of effort to efficiently rehab your injury. Holly’s keen eye for detail and custom cuing approach is valued by her regular patients.
In her role as a movement coach, Holly helps active people restore their body’s factory settings by teaching them to move better. Her clients want to get to the root cause of their aches and pains. Holly takes a very thorough look at the fine details of each client’s movement patterns and breathing patterns and works with the client to restore missing movements. Holly teaches her clients how to move better, breathe better and build a toolkit for staying pain free by paying better attention to what their body is trying to say.
Her expertise focuses on restoring forgotten movement in every joint in the body to allow the muscles to do their job unencumbered. She specializes in restoring foot function to allow the whole body to work as one coordinated, well-oiled machine. Her expert cuing skills help restore movements based on the unique way you learn.
With three decades as a dancer and then dance teacher (ballet and salsa dancing) and a PhD in biology, Holly brings a diverse movement skill set and eye for detail to her practice. She is an Anatomy in Motion practitioner and CanFitPro certified Personal Training Specialist. She has completed Julie Wiebe’s Pelvic Floor Piston Science course. In her spare time Holly enjoys riding her bike, knitting, learning languages, bird watching and finding the city’s best London Fog lattes.
What is movement coaching?
Movement coaching is a vital extension of any good injury rehab program. It zooms in on the details of how each joint and muscle in your body moves to discover the underlying causes of pain and repeat injuries.
By restoring lost range of motion in the joints, the muscles are freed up to move as they are intended, alleviating years of aches and pains. Looking at the whole body as one coordinated machine, movement coaching can reset your body’s ‘factory settings’ while developing your body awareness and an individualized toolkit to stay pain free. Good foot function is a key factor in good whole-body movement and movement coaching often explores foot function in coordination with the whole body.
