Private Posture and
Personalized sessions can be done in-person or over zoom. If you are interested in a session appointment, please contact me to set up an appointment.
Before each session, I will send you guidelines about what to wear, what kind of set-up you will need for zoom sessions, and what to expect.
During the sessions, I will be providing hands-on guidance to guide your body as you move. I will also give you specific feedback about your posture, and ask you to do easy yet specific movement tests to check range of motion and engage certain muscles successfully. My goal is to help you leave every session feeling better than when you started.
All private sessions includes exercises for
Neuromuscular patterning to change stubborn posture and movement patterns that cause pain and discomfort
Core muscle activation for better overall alignment, balance, body awareness and control, and general health
Functional joint motion for improving structural realignment and body awareness
WHAT DOES A PRIVATE SESSION LOOK LIKE?
I often have clients lie on a table so I can integrate hands-on guidance during active movement techniques to rewire your neuromuscular system and help improve muscle recruitment patterns. I then direct clients to do specific core muscle isometrics or movements to engage specific muscles while I guide you to lengthen overworking muscles and activate sleepy core muscles.

I'll guide you through a full range of movement in all three plans to help you access those hard to get places and solve movement problems that limit your activities and cause chronic pain. Working together with our active participation boosts effectiveness and produces longer-lasting results.
improves body awareness and core engagement skills
realigns posture and cultivates economy of motion
relieves chronic pain from muscular tension
reduces and prevents repetitive-use injuries
improves joint flexibility and range of motion
improves dance and athletic performance
“Mary Ann has a storehouse of anatomically-based information, she taught me little tricks for how move more efficiently and avoid common injuries from bad habits I didn’t even know I had."
“Mary Ann uses awesome models of muscles and joints to give you a clear image of what’s going on inside your body.”
“Mary Ann help me find postural muscles I didn’t know I had. My body is finally understanding what it needs to do to stand up straight!”
“Mary Ann showed me simple and practical alignment exercises I can do at work, while I’m traveling, and even while I’m working out.”
“My connection with my body increased immensely after a single session. I became more aware of where muscle were overworking or not working at all.”
