Thanks to some amazing free (!!!!), easy-to-use technology, I am able to work with clients from literally all over the world. How does this work? In a nutshell, you send me a video of you walking using the Hudl Technique app, along with a few photos. I analyze the footage and still photos, design an individualized, targeted corrective exercise program, and then we meet (depending on your location and preference, either in-person or via skype) to go over findings and teach/learn your program. I recommend this package as our most effective mode of working together; I gather a wealth of information by watching your video, zooming in and out, and reviewing literally seconds of footage over and over. NOTE: For technophobes (and believe me I get it!!!), please know that I am still available for  traditional in-person sessions.

Technical Requirements:

You will need the ability to skype, and either an iPhone, iPad, or Android device with the free Hudl Technique app installed.

Instructions:

  1. Record your gait (walking) video. Read specific instructions here.
  2. Share your video with my email address margyverba@hotmail.com directly from the Hudl Technique app. NOTE: Please make sure to save your video with your name — i.e. fill in “Who’s in this video” on the “Save” form!!!
  3. Take the photos I request. Read specific instructions here.
  4. Email me a request for an appointment; attach your photos and a completed intake questionnaire: margyverba@hotmail.com.
  5. Purchase and cut a yoga wedge. Yoga wedges are readily available (Target, K-mart, search the Internet); buy the least expensive one you can find and cut with a serrated knife into 2 1/4″ and 4 1/4″ pieces (approximate is OK…you should get about three of each). We will use these wedges in our session together. NOTE: If you have previously worked with me and already have wedges, you can skip this step.
  6. Wait for reply letting you know when you can schedule your 90 minute appointment (depending on your location and preference, either in-person or via skype). NOTE: Depending on my schedule, I will try to review your footage within a week of receiving.

Investment includes:

  1. Detailed analysis of your video footage, photos, and intake questionaire. Based on findings, I design a targeted, individualized exercise program addressing your needs – 60 minutes of my time.
  2. Session (either via skype or in-person depending on your location and preference) in which we review findings, mobilize sticky joints as needed, release muscles as needed, and teach/learn your individualized targeted program – 90 minutes together.
  3. Post-session support: recap, corrective exercise videos/handouts, availability to answer questions, analyze new footage as needed – 30 minutes of my time.

For a total of 3 hours of my time.

Investment:

$210 if we meet in my Mono City office or via skype; $250 if we meet in-person anywhere other than Mono City (I work in Bishop, CA and travel to a variety of locations for workshops and private appointments).

NOTE: For in-person meetings I may do some hands on joint mobilizations and muscle releases. However, since the focus of my practice is self-care, I have self-care versions of every manual intervention I use. In any case, the goal would be for you to learn the self-care version.
