Embody LIFE

Ashley and Michael met in college building a house for Habitat for Humanity, and their partnership, love and respect has birthed two beautiful children and Embody.  They are two opposite ends of the same pole, together they learn and teach through their experiences.

Michael and Ashley will teach you practices to Embody Life. 

This starts with an open floor plan without the separation of individual treatment rooms. Most people are surprised in their first session, because they have never experienced anything like Embody. The layout empowers you to create the change you are seeking.

Essence Training

Michael teaches how to be internally calm and happy through Integrative Yogic practices guided by commonsense Toltec Wisdom. Learn practices to be kind to the body by slowing down and loving yourself. When we slow down the body, the nervous system calms down and resets itself, and we enter the present moment. We take the inward journey towards the Essence of Life.

Teacher: Michael Nardi


Movement Training

Ashley teaches how to become strong, stable and confident within your body. Learn practices to gain greater mobility and stability in your joints allowing you to gain a greater movement capacity within your day.  Sessions consist of spinal mobility, balance, coordination, floor work, hanging, squatting and joint solidifying movements. 

Teacher: Ashley Nardi

Physical Therapy

Session will include coordination, pre-hab, rehab, mobility, stability, balance and strengthening exercises to address your injury and your whole body system.  Ashley uses movement, loaded progressive stretching, neuromusculature re-education and movement patterns required to be a human, including squatting, hanging, crawling and swivels.  Tissues respond to the stimulus they are provided with; meaning that if tissues are provided with nourishing movements in the appropriate dosage and intensity, they adapt and become stronger, creating a more mobile and more functional body.  If they are provided with immobility, a fear of movement and compensatory methods of movement, the body will become weaker, less mobile and less functional.  

Practitioner: Ashley Nardi
