We are only as good as our 'base of support' because the body works from the ground/bottom, up to counter the pull of gravity- especially noticeable in climbing. To be efficient in countering these effects of gravity, our posture (core) needs to be in a position that can produce downward force that is perpendicular to the 'ground'. If you are smearing on a vertical wall- your shin has to be at a particular angle between your foot (base) and your center of mass to produce downward force which will hold you 'up'. If that shin angle changes, you will slip in the direction that it gives to.
Concepts behind these exercises
'Feeling' and sensation based learning.
'Project' because these exercises you will figure out more by feeling through them on your own, as opposed to me telling exactly how to go about them. However, as you progress I will add some detail and complexity.
what I do
I am a
personal trainer -
providing guidance in strength & movement practices
But, I'm probably not the trainer that typically comes to mind. My work is NOT about changing you into a better version of yourself or even trying to change you at all. (You don't need to change who you are. Things tend to work better when you work with who you are and from where you are. Trying to work through someone else's eyes and expectations will typically take you farther from the body you inhabit). I am here to help you learn about, yourself- so that you may do the things you want to do.
My job is to provide a safe and supportive space for people to practice the communication and expression of their bodies.
The hope is to translate traditional biomechanics into sensation.
what I offer
a personal experience, 125/hour

Exceptions exist and I'm happy to help, please ask
Individuals that know how to care for themself and feel cared for, are the ones that can create relationships and community which transcend convention and idealism. That is the purpose in which I want to contribute.
