Athens Movement Practice was born out of necessity. While physical activity is the overarching determinant of your health, pain and discomfort have stopped us from exploring new ways of being active.

Exercising has become a chore, while the playfulness of movement has all but vanished from our current physical education systems. We aim to change this mindset, re-frame exercise, and help you rediscover the joy of movement.

We are passionate about health and wellness. In fact, we have dedicated our entire lives to serving others in this capacity. We have spent countless hours in the classroom, in workshops, and continuing education courses trying to understand the effects of exercise, manual therapy, and biopsychosocial interventions to keep you moving forward.
