I started my journey as a physiotherapist over 25 years ago. My initial focus was manual therapy and dry needling.
This was a fantastic beginning for me but over time I realized that our best therapy and most powerful tool for changing our bodies is movement.
Since then I have been passionate about exploring different models and tools for movement
- DNS, PRI, Kinstretch, Foundation training, ELDOAs, etc.
We all benefit from the HARD RESETS of manual therapy and dry needling but I truly believe movement is medicine and the best results come from combining these modalities..
Currently, I have a busy physiotherapy practice in North Vancouver, have helped 20,000+ people move better through my online classes and am a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia.
I LOVE LEARNING and LOVE TEACHING.
All bodies and levels are welcome.

Simply the best. I've had quite few memberships - some were good , , some great but Movement 101 stands above all of them - unique combination of FRC,DNS,PRI,ELDOA and other methods is brilliant. Michelle genuinely wants to help the best possible way. - Peter Hanc
Thank you for the series. Today is the first time I can actually feel my hips being more open. I always thought it was my lower back that was weak but it was actually my tight hip joints. Life changing!!!!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know how much I have loved your program! I notice such a difference!!
AND .. so does my chiropractor.. he is SUPER impressed with how much my movement has changed...in fact he's just super impressed overall with your platform (had to show him and RAVE about you!). I've told so many friends Thanks again and have a fab weekend!! - Pella
Firstly, I wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying your course. I love your teaching style, the way you repeat the instructions as we are moving through, the simplicity of it yet paradoxically the complexity of each exercise. - Jodi Gould
As a trainer myself ( I did the FRC and kinstretch course) I was looking for someone who was a bit further than me and found Michelle on instagram. Michelle gave a lot of extra inside information which you can only gather from experience. I learned a lot about my own body but also how to cooperate FRC/kinstretch better in my personal training session.
If you are a trainer and looking for the extra mile, do this course it makes you a better mover and also a better trainer.

Wow thank you so much for your thorough reply. Your classes are incredible, so beautifully sequenced and such intelligent cuing. You are encouraging without being too overwhelming, I so appreciate your balance.
I am a yoga teacher. As I take your classes and I end up pausing so often just to take notes on everything you are saying. I could listen to you talk all day! It's my dream to be able to take all the trainings you have some day, Thank you again!
Your low back rescue and low back lab literally saved me over the holidays. I'm not sure how you did it but those classes fixed everything. Thank you! - JOHN
I love the variety of your membership. My life is busy so I usually opt for short classes but today I decided to dive into a long class and it was worth it. I’m going to do them all. This is the best program I’ve come across. I always feel great after your classes and learn so much. Best investment I’ve made for my body. - Lesley C
Your membership has everything. The quality of your classes and the experience you bring sets it apart from anything else I have tried. Great work. - Gary
