That Is the Question!

Do you ever wonder what it means to be “in alignment”? It has become a very catchy word in all fields of personal fitness, pilates, and yoga. And the truth is, I believe that the term is appropriate for all of these disciplines.

This being said, the distinction with Art of Alignment and other alignment programs is that we offer the possibility of alignment in three original and cutting edge methodologies.

The first, is presented in the art form of Hellerwork Structural Integration. I call it art because the work focuses on an approach that integrates technique, intuition and awareness. It is a “conversation” between the practitioner and the client but also between the client and the client’s deepened sense of personal awareness (see video testimonial below).

Specifically, Hellerwork is a type of manual therapy that focuses on creating more space, fluidity and freedom in your body through gentle manipulation and breath. The main “organ” that is addressed is fascia also know as connective tissue. This is a very important difference, say from massage, chiropractic or any other type of manipulation, because addressing the fascia in this way acknowledges the entire structure of the body and its inherent relationships.

One of the most powerful aspects of Hellerwork is the integration of therapeutic dialogue and movement education. It is a complete approach to alignment from the inside out.

The second method and program available to you is the Creative Leadership Coaching Program. After coaching hundreds of artists, corporate teams, and management professionals over the past 20 years, I have come to realize that the greatest positive change that has evolved in my clients’ lives and careers is through the art ofcreative coaching and communication.

Long gone are the days of coaching from a “safe” platform of “fitting in” or “following the crowd”. It is a very different time in the history of personal growth and human potentiality. We are now observing more and more people in all industries stepping into their entrepreneurial shoes wanting to have a real impact for the greater good of all. And this from people of all ages and in every culture.

The Creative Leadership Coaching Program (CLCP) offers you important tools to make the transition into a deeply satisfying and successful lifestyle and career. The goal is to assist you in recognizing your true deeper purpose on this earth. Together, we dissect what your “unique brilliance” is and creatively strategize a plan for your transition into the beginning of the rest of your life. You will learn to take massive decisive action and move into the direction of your dreams in a structured, supportive and proactive way.

“The program supports me in creating results in my life that are beyond transformational. I wish everyone I knew had an Anne-Marie for a coach.
I am literally making my dreams come true.”
-Barbara Katsnelson

The third method, Dynamic Alignment is a movement program that integrates my years as a dancer, martial artist and movement enthusiast. The bottom line is that humans are made to move, every day in every way. Stagnancy or lack of movement consistently gets us into a form of “stuckness”. The goal of Dynamic Alignment is to integrate easy daily movement patterns that support fluidity in the body, adds energy to your being and enlivens your spirit!

After teaching Dynamic Alignment in studios for several years, I have decided to create an online video series that is presently being developed to be launched within the next few months. Please stay tuned for more information on this exciting program!
