"This was my first time working with Melanie. My boss has been raving about her for years and has wanted me to take a workshop down in Portland for ever. I feel so fortunate to be a part of the trial run of virtual workshops but I can’t wait to meet her in person. It was a great first experience!"

Tired of collecting fitness certifications that only give you repetition and simple cueing but fail to look at the whole picture and speak directly to the clients you serve?  Are you bored, disengaged or feeling stuck with prescribed exercise programs that don't seem to help your clients or patients?

Whether you're a licensed health professional or a certified exercise or movement instructor, Melanie Byford-Young offers virtual workshops, and in-person learning to expand your knowledge and add intellect to what you do. Learn to use anatomy and structure in relationship to biomechanics, understand principles of pain, breath, and core-stability, and make informed movement decisions within the scope of your movement or health practice.

"I found it compelling that you could learn and gather such a significant amount of information about a client, by observing just a few functional movements. With all the amount of tests and measures that we learn in PT school, sometimes we forget how beneficial it is to just observe movement. I already started applying the 3 assessments we learned yesterday with all of my clients today!"

“We all need more Melanie in our lives—that gorgeous positive energy and that humble presentation of such impressive knowledge.”
