“Restorative Exercise has given me my life back, my husband his wife back & my kids their mum back. And saved us all an awful lot of money. The end.”
» the Active Balance is a family affair. There are five of us.
» I (Tanya) am the face of it…so there’s more about me below!
» The three smallest (but rapidly growing) members of the team teach us what natural movement really looks like (they’re young enough to still have it), they show us what happens when they start to sit more at school and demonstrate how quickly young bodies respond to the right movement.
» My husband is the one who is has the strength-to-weight ratio I crave, takes the photos I need to assess my alignment (& build websites!), builds the inventions I dream up to accelerate our home alignment & movement practice and role models the perfect dynamic workstation with his standing desk, pebble called Pedro & ruler-stuck-to-desk-to-stop-the-lean invention :).
» A qualified Restorative Exercise™ Specialist CPT (certified personal trainer)
» A qualified Personal Performance Coach with 15 years experience
» A Sustainable Yoga Teacher in training
» Trained in resistance stretching and massage ball therapy
» A dedicated (Restorative Exercise™) alignment and Nutritious Movement™ addict ?
» An Oxford Maths graduate who, for the first time, is seeing real benefit in studying maths & mechanics at a crazy level … only wish I’d found a BIOmechanics module back then!
» Someone who, after 14 yrs of back troubles, now has no pain … yesss ?
» Someone who spent a fortune seeing 18 (yes 18!) different professionals over the course of 14 years twice a month(on average) to try and ‘fix’ back & pelvis troubles
» Someone who tried Pilates, Tai Chi & one-to-one work with an Exercises Physiologist to resolve back pain to no avail
» A woman who had no idea that pregnancy could do such damage to a body which wasn’t already working properly
» A (strong) mum who was able to carry her two year old ~3 miles daily on the school run after being unable to carry him as a newborn without prolonged pain
» A mum to three little (but very!) active boys and a wife to one (equally) active big boy
» A lover of the great outdoors & all the hiking, climbing and camping that it gifts us
…. and I could keep going, but you’ve probably had enough! If you’ve not, check out my linked-in profile for a more formal introduction … or tweet me, like us or mail me for a less formal one. I look forward to ‘meeting’ you :).
I also work as a life coach supporting individuals achieve their active life balance.
