“My posture had suffered from years of work with computers, and Birgitt has helped significantly in my efforts to counteract those effects.
I have been working with Birgitt for over seven years, and I continue to be amazed by her knowledge, her talent and her eye for essential details. I first consulted Birgitt after injuring myself in a misguided attempt to “get in shape” on my own with scattershot, unplanned exercises.
Birgitt carefully looks at each of her clients, determines priorities for strengthening and development, and instructs in the movements needed for improvement. She never lets us approach exercises thoughtlessly or by rote. With her sharp eye and careful coaching, she makes sure that I understand the exercises thoroughly to avoid injury and maximize results. She helps me focus on specific muscles and the most beneficial ways to work with them. From the beginning, she helped me understand the importance of stretching as an important component of overall body health and posture, and taught me to stretch properly and effectively.
My posture had suffered from years of work with computers, and Birgitt has helped significantly in my efforts to counteract those effects. Far more is needed than just throwing one’s shoulders back. As in all of her work with me, she emphasizes the total body and the connections and interactions of the parts, with the mind being an important part of the whole.
I remain grateful for Birgitt’s skill and assistance. As we age, it takes more work, physical and mental, to stay in shape, but Birgitt makes sure that the process is continually evolving and interesting.
