Durable Movement Classes are a somatic based exploration in movement therapy all performed outside so you can soak up that Vitamin D.
Each class is unique and designed to nourish and tend to the nervous system with the extra benefit of being outdoors. Did we mention, by the beach?
Durable Movement blends the science of healing biomechanics, pain education, and the energetic anatomy of regeneration techniques to deliver a 60-minute class that is the perfect balance to reset, restore, and refocus you for the week ahead.
These classes may look, and feel like yoga, but it draws from dozens of therapeutic modalities. Each class is thematically focused to improve joint resiliency and build greater body control that emphasizes the feeling of alignment through intuitive-based sequences in a guided exploratory experience that extends well beyond the mat.
EveryBODY moves differently, and these Durable Movement Classes are your chance to tune in and listen to what your body needs to move and feel better. You'll leave feeling increased range-of-motion, improved tissue regeneration, and expanded awareness.
These classes are performed outside at Kits Beach, where we can soak up the Vitamin D, breathe the fresh sea-salt air, and feel grounded throughout your practice.
The Durable Movement Classes are a four-class series (Grounded, Expanded, Centred, and Aligned) that are progressive and flow together. Each class is carefully curated to create a sensory-rich environment starting with a guided movement meditation around the anatomy and physiology of the class theme, breathwork, and reflexology to deepen your individual needs.
The specific focus of each class is unique, using intuitive-based movement and energetic alignment principles while exploring the concepts related to pain science to reduce daily aches, improve mindset and whole-person care in the expansive outdoors.
Classes conclude with a regenerative focus using resonance breathwork, and lymphatic stimulation to raise the body’s vibration and balance energy and a dip in Coast Salish Sea (optional).
Think: A rhythmic, breath-infused therapeutic environment designed to build new neural pathways that aim to relieve your daily aches and pains while improving mindful yin energy.

This class is a deep dive into the physical and energetic aspects of building awareness from the ground up. The perfect prescription to erase daily aches and pains. Applying joint mobility and muscle-specific sequences to improve articular joint health, you’ll tap into neglected areas of your body through the use of intuitively sequenced therapeutic movements, combined breath-work, and self administered reflexology. Emphasizing the thoracic spine, the hips, shoulders, and neck, because these areas are coming in hot. Cool them off here. This class will be performed with no footwear - let the piglets be free.
Lean into restoration hard with Dr. Belisa Vranich's signature BREATHETM class and tap into the power of breath and strong lungs. This is a ground-based practice that focuses on cultivating expansion within the spaces that support our breath and posture. Explore a variety of dynamic and yin-style movements aimed at strengthen, and stabilizing the diaphragm. Learn how to breathe more effectively to manage stress, reduce anxiety, and improve your long-term health. Bonus: Breathing sea-Salt air has been shown to nourish your Ph.
Creating awareness is the first step towards creating change. This class does this by blending the body's natural energetic anatomy and physiology of controlled articular joint mobility. Through prioritizing your spine you will help improve circulation, oxidation, lymphatic stimulation, and nutrient uptake to the brain and body. Placing emphasis on segmental mobility and stability of the spine, you'll learn to free up space in the joints and improve flexibility. Step back from the athletic intensity and daily stresses of life to nourish and unwind from the inside out.
Bones and muscles are meant to work together in unity, but inactivity, lack of mobility or aging can reduce joint health and reduce elasticity in your tissues, leaving you tired, stiff, and sore. This is a dynamic, rhythmic class dedicated to reclaiming the natural spirals in locomotion - body in motion. Here, we blend strength and tensegrity in motion using the body's natural fascial spirals to gently recondition the nervous system, and connective tissues of your body. This class is like a proprioceptive party for your nervous system designed to melt stress and lift your mental state.
