Helping athletes & performers understand their body so they get the effortless performance they deserve.

_X1A0538-Edit_edited.png

There is this immense amount of joy in the rush and thrill of performance or being in your prime.

Unfortunately, there is also stress and injuries to your body

for the sake of the performance.

 

The worst feeling is not being able to keep up with what’s being asked of you in class. That only leads to more bad habits, which ultimately won’t make you a better dancer. Whether you are recovering from an injury, graduating from your studio or working towards that company role, the one constant is that your body needs to be in its best shape to handle whatever you throw at it. After all, you’re not just a dancer, you’re a whole person too.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY EQUIPMENT

The human body is an incredibly complex vessel that you get to use to guide your soul through life. Not only that, but it's the most crucial piece of "equipment" you have to use when engaging in dance and performance. It's important to honour it and take care of it the best way possible.

And how do you do this?

By treating yourself like the whole person you are and taking care of every aspect of you – body, mind and soul.

Welcome to 

 

 

 

 

 

 


We believe that our performers deserve the same support and care that all athletes have to help them reach their highest potential.

With the right knowledge, health team and support system, dancers have the power to exceed their highest limits. When you feel great, you produce great things and bring joy to the world.

Enter into

the era...

of the artistic athlete

Feel confident in your abilities and what your body can do

Know the steps to prevent injury and stay safe while dancing

Understand the importance of your health and how it moves you

Dance energetically across the room again!

Supporting your dancing with additional training and nutrition can seriously improve your energy, injury recovery and overall mood. Not only would this benefit your time in the studio, but outside the studio as well, helping you grow and become the amazing person you know you can be. I know how much you love to dance and that your life wouldn’t be the same without it, but don’t risk letting it ruin you. You don’t have to be alone trying to just survive; be in a community that understands the dance world and wants you to thrive within it. See this as your safe haven to improve your health without the fear of being told to stop doing what you love.

Unleash your performance potential and get that extra edge you've been looking for

Our Mission: 

From Studio to Stages --- From Playgrounds to Podiums --- From Fear to Freedom

To inspire dancers and performing athletes to pursue their dreams while living a holistic lifestyle. We want to make sure you stay healthy while you stay fit and decrease body stress to restore the energy so you can keep doing the things you want to do, let alone what you need to do

"...dancers are clearly athletes in the degree to which they require sophisticated physical capacities to perform at a high level..."

- Russel (2013), Journal of Sports Medicine

There is power in health autonomy and with the right guidance and training, you can control your health and retire on your own terms. The best way to take back control of your health is to understand the body you live in and connect to its every process. Improve your skills as a performer by taking care of the human behind the athlete and see where your new lifestyle can take you.

You can get back to doing what you love most and make it feel just as powerful and easy as you make it look on stage!

So what are you waiting for?

If I knew then what I know now...

Your body is the most important piece of equipment you have and it deserves to be taken care of - body, mind and spirit. If you are taken care of, you can do what you love to inspire others to do what they love. Art is necessary in this world to continue to make it beautiful, so we need to take care of the artists and athletes that create it. Remove the old dogma of living through pain, no rest days and feeling like it's a chore to get up every day. Take care of your self and your health to prep for performance and your life after.

The ATHLETES UNBOUND framework is all about removing those limitations – either physical or mental – and getting you to reach your performance potential. We do this by understanding that you are more than an athlete, you’re a Whole Person.

You need a care team that sees you as that whole person and who can help take care of your health with all of your goals in mind.

1-Before the Visit

You will be given an in depth intake form to fill out. This will include discussing what your goals are and important health information I need to know before we get started

3-Labs & Testing

After getting all the necessary and relevant information, we'll go through relevant exams and order lab work to tie together your symptoms with any physical or objective findings before getting to your treatment plan.

2-Initial Visit

In the initial appointment, we will take a full look at your concerns and overall health. We don't only address your chief concern, but your full health history and anything else that you want to discuss. We'll set some goals together about how best to approach each one. 

4-Your Care Plan

Your care is a process, so not all conditions will be resolved after the first visit, or even the first week. Don't worry - you won't leave empty handed - we'll get started on the right track before following up with a full plan and the steps to follow.

Let's learn what your options are

Making your health fun and easy to understand is the best way to make it sustainable and have you actually wanting to focus on it. You'll keep seeing those positive results that translate into amazing performances - bringing back the fun and reminding you why you love it so much.

So ask yourself: Don’t you want it to be fun again?

 

Then let’s do this.
