Description

Do you want to be fit, strong and powerful?

Do you believe that there is more to fitness than calorie counting?


The 1.5 hrs session will introduce you to The Merisoiu Technique, the art of mastering your body through Organic Movement and Mindful Control and how it can benefit your life long term.

This session will give you the basic understanding of posture, physical movement, and efficient body use. Efficient body use is about using the body with the least muscle tension thus reducing the stress you place on your joints.

The efficiency with which we lose weight, prevent injuries or recover from one are all dependant on how we use our bodies.

When you master body movement you will:

- get more out of your workouts

- protect your body if you understand how it functions

- recover faster after injuries, not only sports injuries

- get fitter and stronger



THE MERISOIU TECHNIQUE

When Alexandra created The Merisoiu Technique it was because her clients wanted to get fit, strong and powerful.

However they also needed to understand how their bodies function, how to move soft and fluid and how to prevent injury as much as possible. And it was essential not to sacrifice the later for the former.

It was imperative for them to understand the difference between tension and relaxation, intentional movement, posture and balance and counterbalance.

The Mindful Control component is where Alexandra’s clients learn to bring together or to align body, breath, and mind.

And then to catapult their results we brought in the physical and psychological benefits and the freedom of training outdoors all year round. Benefits such as strength and emotional balance. And of course the nutrition and healthy habits part.

Finally, it became clear that her clients needed to have access to a complete system which would offer them the foundations they needed to live a healthy and fit life for the rest of their lives. Once you understand the basics of movement, posture, breathing, nutrition and Mindful Control then you actually become in control of your own life.

So all these lead to her creating a unique transformational system: The Merisoiu Technique which incorporates five essential principles of a healthier lifestyle: Earthing, Fluid Movement, Food Discipline™, Mindful Control™, Organic Movement.

TESTIMONIALS

"Alexandra took me and a gang of four 13-14 year olds on a workshop in the woods recently. We spent 2,5 hours in our local woods, exercising in a way you would never have done before. Alexandra teaches you how to get fit with the countryside, as a natural gym, using the trees, branches, dips and curves and different terrain you might find in your local woods. She taught us posture, alignment and how to create length and strength, as well as mindfulness. The girls loved it. They had such fun and could not believe how much they got out of training like this in nature, and how fit you can get, as well as grounded.

I would recommend anyone of any age to train with Alexandra. She has the whole package of body, mind and nature, and fun. Thank you for a truly inspiring and unforgettable day!"

Tone Tellefsen Hughes, Director of Luck’s Yard Chiropractic Clinic, Surrey.

"I started working with Alexandra in late Feb this year [2015], and in the short few months have seen massive benefits in my fitness as well as general well being!

Go from complete shut down to fully functional was designed for me, and I can say with confidence she delivers on that promise!

I had a lot going on when we started working together, and was resorting to stress eating to cope, going speedily down a vicious cycle where my fitness and general well being was concerned.. it took Alex a while to shake me out of that, but she adjusted her approach to suit my needs, ie – to suit my then fitness levels and also using language/messaging that would appeal to me and inspire me to go along with her suggestions!

I find myself fitter, more able physically, more in control generally, and more inspired to make wholesome choices, with nutrition in specific but my whole lifestyle in general!

So, all in all, a great 360 degree experience built on that symbiotic link between physical and emotional health.

I have also learnt the relationship between seemingly unrelated things causing the aches/pains and injuries.

I am learning how to use my body with greater awareness so as to help existing injuries and prevent any in future. I like that her approach is built on building knowledge and awareness of ones body and its use, and making small changes to get long lasting transformational results.

Another interesting learning for me has been how much I enjoy the outdoors. While I have always liked green open spaces, I never thought I would enjoy training outdoors.

I started training with Alex in Feb, through relatively cold weather and on an early morning slot, so I had my share of reservations on that, but I am happy to share that I have loved it more with every session.

It has helped build my resilience and hopefully given me something I could continue with going forwards, on my own!

All in all, highly recommended!"

Pooja Sharma, Manager Pearson Plc
