“mUvmethod is a program that has helped me recover physically, mentally, and emotionally from a very serious injury, and a long professional dance career. mUvemthod has strengthened my body in ways that nothing has before. While I feel stronger overall, my balance, body awareness (in a sense of movement), and my ability to move more freely (range of motion/flexibility) has improved dramatically. mUvmethod was not available to me until after my dance career, and I am positive that if it was, I would have experienced less pain and injury throughout. On a mental level, it has taught me how to deal with stress on the dance floor, on the yoga mat, and in life itself. It strengthens your connection not only with your body, but with yourself, and allows you to manage stress in a healthy and functional way. As dancers and humans, we are constantly comparing and judging ourselves against others, and this can be emotionally draining. mUvmethod helps people move away from this habit, and learn to love their differences and realize the beauty in their uniqueness.”
