How freely does your body move & feel?
Do You Feel..?
.. tired of pain in your hips, knees, or back that is preventing you from moving with ease and enjoying your life?
.. frustrated with not being able to bend over and pick things up quite as easily?
.. intimidated that you cannot keep up with a mainstream yoga class?
.. stuck because you think you "could never do that" as you're not naturally flexible?
.. having a more difficult time getting up and down from the floor?
Contrary to what most people say, it DOESN'T have to take you years to get to your goal AND you're not doomed because of your genetics or aging.
The Biggest Flexibility Myths
It will take years to see ANY progress..
It might, if your game plan is to be going to random yoga classes but it will NOT if you shift your focus towards proper mobility and flexibility training and start working on active stretching. Do you have a goal? Train for it! You need to have a plan and be consistent, but it does not take a great deal of time.
If you're not naturally flexible, you're doomed.
It's amazing how this myth continues to stay alive. Let me put it straight: Genetics might help in terms of flexibility, but if you weren't born with flexible genes you are not doomed. If you put in consistent work, you WILL achieve your goals, that's a fact. No matter where you are in your practice or how old you are!
I can’t stretch because I have sore joints.
Arthritis is no laughing matter but that doesn’t mean individuals with arthritis should rule out trying any form of physical exercise or stretching. In fact, there have been a number of studies showing that regular exercise and stretching can be a huge help in alleviating the pain associated with arthritis.
But the biggest myth of them all:
It’s Too Late for me to Start Stretching
My average client comes to me in their 60's and I have worked with clients up to 103 years old!
Trust me, there is no hopeless case. Most of my clients are surprised at how quickly they start seeing results. Often times my clients are shocked at how much it impacts their daily activities from getting up and down from the toilet easier to not being winded when they get up the stairs. They even find bending over to pick up the ball on the golf course comes with more ease and way less effort. I love hearing my client's share all the ways they are feeling better in their body - from playing with grandchildren to climbing up ladders to hitting the golf ball further than ever, I have heard so many happy stories.
Imagine if you could...
.. diminish your aches and pains
.. move with ease and confidence
.. release the tension in your neck, shoulders, spine and hips
.. walk into yoga or any other movement class and be able to keep up with the teacher and others
.. be part of an inspiring and supportive community that will help you out on your journey of healthy aging and wellness
..have an expert guiding you every step of the way

WHY DOES "Simply Stretch" WORK SO WELL?
A lot of trainers and yoga instructors have a limited perspective. Often times this is simply a result in their training and a lack of continuing education. I have made my way through 50 certifications and countless hours of research in my field to truly understand the intricacies of the human body. When a trainer or instructor has a limited perspective it results in a cookie cutter approach, and in my experience both as a practitioner and a teacher it just doesn't work.
I believe in a FOCUSED APPROACH which = LESS TIME.
You do not need to spend a lot of time stretching each day, but you need to be consistent with the little movement practices throughout your week. I try to keep all the routines under 20 minutes and guide you in how to create your own routine from what you have learned. I have seen clients increase their flexibility significantly in six weeks with just doing one of my stretching routines twice a week for 15 minutes. This is not a big time commitment!
The magic of Simply Stretch lies in its emphasis on simple stretches with mindful movement.
The body won't allow you to go where it doesn't feel safe. Stretching is not just about your body but also your central nervous system. This course will help you understand the nuances to each stretch and how to get the maximum benefit in the minimal amount of time.

What my clients say...
Hilery’s methodology involves an approach to lifestyle adjustments that are realistic and sustainable. She believes health and wellness is a journey, not a destination. Hilery is truly invested in my success and well being. This has motivated me to work diligently to make the changes that are the best for my future wellness. I’ve had some setbacks in my journey, however this is where Hilery is brilliant. Her ability to thoroughly analyze the situation and provide constructive solutions is a true skill. Hilery knows how to motivate and encourage me to stay positive despite what happens. This is a phenomenal talent and a testament to who she is as a person. Hilery continues to be a blessing in my life and I consider it a privilege to work with her. I very much enjoy working with her and look forward to her continued guidance in my health and wellness journey. Thank you Hilery!!
Hilery actually listens, and due to her vast knowledge and compassion, I now have a 5-day plan that I can do when it is convenient for me. Yoga was very painful for me so Hilery now has me doing a chair yoga routine three times a week and an overall stretching and strengthening routine twice a week. I am actually looking forward to the workouts everyday and make it a priority, which I have never done in the past. It makes such a difference to have a routine designed just for me.
I am getting stronger and more flexible with each workout and it doesn't hurt to stretch anymore. Hilery will modify my program as needed which is wonderful. I know it will always be challenging, effective, and fun. I love how she explains each exercise and makes sure that I have good form. The gentle reminders are very helpful and keep me in proper alignment. Thank you Hilery! You have truly made a difference in my everyday life.
