 "An instructor's role is not to dictate to students, but to be present with them." ~ Doug Keller

 

The founder and owner of Refined Alignment is a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist who has worked in the field of health and fitness over 30 years.  From lifeguarding, swimming instruction, water fitness, & pool management to in-patient physical rehabilitation as a recreation therapist, yoga, community fitness and operating a wellness program for a health center, have all provided valuable experience. Leaving the corporate health world to be self-employed has allowed for greater flexibility to meet client's individual fitness goals and the freedom to synergistically include things like essential oils, api-therapy, prayer & meditation, grounding/earthing & infrared sauna to compliment a wellness lifestyle. Class sizes are kept small enough to keep the focus on what each participant needs!

 

Maintaining certification requires continuing education & this additional training has included the following topics that find their way into classes each week as participants need: fall prevention, strength training, balance, posture improvement, Parkinson's Disease-specific exercise, arthritis-specific exercise, stroke rehab, slowing the aging process, "exercise as medicine", over 300 hours of yoga teacher training/yoga as a therapeutic modality, wellness coaching & more.

  

Classes are open to every body, including pre and post natal, and can be adapted as needed.
