Move SMART with Alison Crouch
Sign up for my bi-weekly newsletter! Video tutorials, anatomy that we can all understand, updates on classes and workshops and my free resources for teachers and movers alike!
I love movement education and believe that everyone can benefit from an understanding of how and why the body moves. My teaching is detailed and nuanced (with a dash of humour and a bit of sass) because I want to share that understanding with all my clients while they have fun!
Everybody has their own movement history and that narrative informs what I teach and how I teach it whether that means using different movement modalities or a different instructional narrative that respects injury or previous life experiences. As a trauma-informed practitioner it is my honour to create a safe space for clients to move and learn.
I started out teaching Pilates and continued to evolve my teaching as a Nutritious Movement Centre-certified Restorative Exercise Specialist-CPT and Movement for Trauma practitioner. I learn from and communicate with leading professionals in the movement world regularly so that my practice never stops growing!
In recent years I have mentored young teachers and have now created the Move SMART program. Sustainable Movement & Authentic Teaching is for all modalities of teachers and for therapeutic body-work professionals who prescribe exercise, because good teaching skills surpass all the boundaries of style and content.
“I’ve taken many workshops over the years and Alison shares her knowledge and expertise in a way that is candid, practical, and well informed.”
