August Update 

The Center For Movement Weymouth was a place where students could find health and healing through a wide variety of mindful classes .
It is my intention to continue to  uphold these high standards as I navigate new possibilities for classes.
I will be teaching outdoors as long as the weather permits.
These teachings will be in the form of  group strength & conditioning classes, personal training sessions, private home groups, athletic trainings and yoga classes. 
This is not new for me nor is it inconvenient,  For those who know me, know i am in the best place i can be, outdoors! 
Your friendship has meant the world to me and it is my sincere hope that we can continue this journey in some way. 
I am available for small group in home sessions for anyone who is interested. Please feel free to reach out to me @ 781 974 5757 or [email protected] with any questions or comments. I remain committed to the health and well being of all my friends.
