Move like a fluid athlete

Aug. 2016 Testimonial
“It’s been weeks since I took Mary’s Heller Barre Practice class, and what I discovered about my body during that time  was amazing.
I do have an innate ability to move with confidence – – to walk or even run a bit if I want to. To stoop, to bend, even to use good balance.
I discovered all that through the weeks of the class, and I was better able to walk with greater comfort as well. Now, sometimes I was a little sore the next day…which makes me think taking it twice a week would be even better as I tend to practice little on my own.  The greater confidence I gained in my movement, particularly walking, was well worth the time and effort! Thank you, thank you, Mary!”

You CAN change your body’s structure. I HAD to change my skeletal alignment over 30 years ago, safely, and over time, to have the professional performing dance career I did.

Over time change your skeletal alignment through:

• muscle memory conditioning,

• aligned, deep, belly-of-the-muscles, active isolated stretching (AIS), WITH the use of gravity, and barres,

• integration OF KINESIOLOGY awareness into other movement practices, and/or everyday movement you do.


Floor, bands, barre, gravity, alignment, focus, breath, knowledge, critical informational feedback, feeling JUST the core, loosing the rest of the tension, all leads to muscle memory to KEEP great alignment. No matter how fast of a decision you must make in any movement, this alignment is there for you!
