"I love being one of your online students. You have such a way about your teaching style that is knowledgable, supportive, and engaging. You have the gift of being articulate, as well as personable. Both "must-haves" when it comes to teaching online."
"I am a big fan of [the classes] as they help me keep on top of my practice in a manageable way, particularly when I'm time pressed (which seems to be every day!). I also like how they focus on the technical aspects of each movement so that I can really maximize the benefit of each exercise."
Are you ready to feel capable, confident, and free?
Here’s the secret:
The better you move, the better your body works and the better you feel. Movement helps us connect with our bodies and the world around us. Movement is essential for living our best lives.
But here’s the problem:
Sedentary modern life has messed up our bodies. Modern humans hardly have to move at all, and our bodies are breaking down because of it.
My online Movement Membership is for you if you want to reconnect with your body, restore your wellness and gain control, strength and range of motion. You’ll find your limitations...and then change them. It’s in-depth, structured learning – delivered in bite-sized classes and practical every day tips that fit your busy life.
You were born to move. Join me here, and take back your power, nourish your body and choose to create a better future.
- A Video Library With Over 65 Bite-Sized Movement Classes (& Counting). Each class is a mini-workout that fits into your busy life. It will also help you learn how to move better in your regular daily life. Plus, I'll be adding 2-3 new classes each month so you never have to get bored.
- Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) Daily Movement Practice. The systematic and super delicious CARs practice is designed to help you move your body more every single day - even when you don't have time for a class.
- Real Life Movement Tips. With every class, I give you a tip for adding more movement to your regular daily life (this is the way to really amp up the benefits of your work).
- Bonus Tutorials (For Tricky Stuff). Some movement skills are harder than others. I’ll make sure you get extra practice and information about the hard stuff so that you feel confident that you’re doing stuff right.
- In-Depth Coaching & Body Learning. Really juicy topics need more than 10 minutes. I offer live (and recorded) coaching calls and special class series for these. So far, topics include: walking, squatting, hanging, pelvic floor health, understanding whole body alignment, a Move Your DNA book club and so many more.
- Authentic, Caring and Real Coaching. I love sharing the transformation this work brings and I love to support your journey.
- Online Community. For sharing your experiences, your triumphs and your questions with others who are also exploring the world of better movement. And of course for asking your questions!
"Thank you for everything! I’m so grateful to have met you and learned from you - you have a gift. You are truly inspiring."
"Bolstered Ankle Cross-Legged Sit is my new favorite way to sit! I don't think I've ever seen that one before. THANK YOU! I haven't been able to join you live *yet* (mostly I've been outside moving at the appointed times) but I very much appreciate the monthly Coaching Calls. On-point topics, great visuals and I learn so much."
"Petra’s a great teacher – she’s encouraging, kind and perceptive. Her videos always seem to answer a question that’s been lurking at the back of my mind, or propose a small change that made all the difference. With Petra’s help, some long-term issues with my feet and hips are getting better. Even more interesting, I have a better sense as to how these problems arose in the first place. One unexpected Great Thing has been that her teaching helps to make the most of other material I’ve already purchased (such as Katy Bowman’s Alignment Snacks) since my form’s a lot better and is leading to changes more quickly."
"I am so thankful for your work, help, tips, and your dedication to helping the rest of us move better. I am having to make changes slower than I like, but I know that some is better than none! I've already become a floor sitter, am trying to vary my position a lot, am walking more, and am transitioning to sleeping on the floor. I have 3 kids 5 and under, including a 20lb baby girl who is in my arms 90% of her awake time, so I find it both challenging and NECESSARY to pay attention to my movement and model better options for my family. THANK YOU! Your work is influencing better long-term health and happiness for my family!"
"I really like the length of the segments - around 10 mins. is good. The demonstrations are clear and uncomplicated. Really nice. Thank you again!!!!"
