Neurokinetic Pilates takes over the CR Johnson Healing Center!
For the past week (Sept 8-11) the CR Johnson Healing Center / High Fives Office has been pleased to host Neurokinetic Pilates Training with Alejandra Monsalve of Body Wellness Hawaii. For the first time EVER Neurokinetic Pilates (NKP) has been introduced to the mainland thanks to Alejandra and Shawna & Grant Korgan.
In this workshop health/ fitness/ wellness practitioners have learned the NKP at a basic level as well as NKP for Spinal Cord Injury Recovery.
High Fives Athlete Jeff Andrews stopped by the office to get his spinal cord workout in with Alejandra. Jeff is one of the newest High Fives Athletes who is currently adjusting to the adversity with an infectious smile and positive attitude. The practitioners as well as Jeff were thrilled to learn more about some of the best and most proven restorative training techniques in the entire world.
In between fundamentals of NKP, analysis of Neuro-Biomechanical and analysis of SCI recover exercises using the CoreAlign equipment we were able to borrow Alejandra for a quick interview “I was happy as well as anxious to bring NKP to the mainland and hoping it’s just a start.” – Alejandra Monsalve
Alejandra has been working as a kinesiology, researcher, movement educator and physical therapist in Chile, Mecico & Cuba for over 20 years.
