Strength & Grace through Movement

What if you discovered an extraordinary method of conditioning that enabled you to live with minimal pain and maximum vitality by teaching you a way of moving that results in a strong, supple and energized mind and body.

The Second Wind® Method does just that.


The Second Wind® Method...  

Teaches a simple, step-by-step protocol based on principles of alignment, core integration, timing and spatial awareness.  With focus on quality over quantity, you will learn the crucial integration of breath-and-movement while moving to enhance body awareness, movement control and precision. False ideas about strength and posture are replaced with proper alignment and core support. As the training profoundly changes your posture, strength and mobility for life, you can do none other than succeed, no matter a beginner or advanced mover.
