Not everyone has the luxury of time to be outside and moving, playing, exercising and training everyday. Life can be busy, messy and complicated. We want you to feel good even when you don’t have a lot of time. Movement Snacks is an approach to bite sized movement sequences that will keep you strong, mobile, pain free and happier during the busier parts of your week.
EVERYDAY MOVES FOR BUSY LIVES
WHAT IS IT?
Movement Snacks is a daily 10 minute accessible movement practice that will kickstart your mobility and get you feeling good. If you are sat down for most of the day these are the snacks that you want to see you through and leave you feeling strong and pain free each day. They include breath work, nervous system resets, mobility, balance and strength. Movement Snacks gives you the tools to unwind the stiffness and rigidity developed from hours upon hours of sitting in chairs, cars, seats, couches and meetings.
The course is perfect for you if...
- You are too busy during the week to do full workouts even if you want to.
- You want to move everyday but know you need restorative rest days.
- You want to get back into training and being more active like you used to be.
- You want to get rid of the old injuries and niggles of aches and pains that don’t fully stop you but definitely bother you and make you feel older than you should.
- You’re bored of doing the same old thing and not seeing results.
- You’re interested in progress not perfection. Perfection isn’t real.
- You want to move all of your body and feel more connected in it and to it.

“I really like it, it’s been helping get some movement in on the days when my mind isnt really in the game. And the movement helps bring me out of the funk, so I find it very helpful .”
“I have increased my strength, my balance, my willingness to move more when I have the chance (taking stairs with my arms full or empty), and my vision of who I am and what I can accomplish has expanded.”

“I have improved my hip mobility and my balance. I have also been able to take some of the mindset shifts “off the grass” and into my life, which has been super exciting.“
