The instructors at the NMCNW love movement and helping others move more comfortably. They are trained to guide you through simple, accessible, and effective exercises geared toward getting your body moving well and feeling great in your daily life. Once you’re moving better and feeling great, we want to help you increase the amount of movement in your day-to-day activities.
Movement goals we specialize in include being able to walk long distances, carry groceries home, or play on the floor with children (and without discomfort!). What can our team help you work toward?
