    About Ramona

    Ramona

    "I see each person as an orchestra with their own rhythms.

    When the individual instruments play their parts, we have harmony."

    My own journey into movement and bodywork began in 1999 when a physiotherapist friend recommended I try Pilates to help with a shoulder injury. So off I went and did just that. I loved it so much that I left the corporate world and I have not looked back! I have been immersed in the study and application of human movement, anatomy, manual therapy and breathwork ever since.

    Today I am as passionate about the body in movement as I was then. It is this passion that keeps me striving in my vocations as a manual therapist and movement teacher to find ways for each client to become more aware of their body and their whole self, so that they can enjoy moving with more ease, with less/no pain, prevent injuries, recover from injuries & surgeries, breathe better and feel better and healthier overall. I have a special interest in back care and in women's health. I provide advice and exercises for ante-natal and post-natal care as well as for menopause and osteoporosis.

    I have studied Structural Integration (ATSI) with Tom Myers and James Earls, Advanced Myofascial Techniques (CAMT Level 1) with Til Luchau, Active Fascial Release (AFR) with James Earls and ScarWork™ Therapy by Sharon Wheeler. I hold an MSc in Dance Science from Laban in London, a diploma in Applied Functional Science (Gray Institute) and a diploma in Somatic Movement Education (Franklin Institute). I am a Yoga Alliance International certified graduate of CamYoga Teacher training (RYT 200) and am Pilates certified by Polestar Pilates and Body Control Pilates. During my studies and practice I meet wonderful teachers and I have made friends from other somatic schools and practices such as Feldenkrais and Body-Mind Centering and those teachings keep influencing my own practice and my work.

    My client base covers a broad spectrum and all ages. I work in a Wellness & Fitness Centre and I teach regular classes both online and in a local community centre. In the past I have worked with corporate clients, in a Physiotherapy practice, in a Complementary Health Centre and in a Women's Health Centre.
