Balanced Wellness with Deb Gunn

Welcome to Fitness and Chi, your virtual home away from home.  A welcoming community of awesome people finding balanced health for body and mind.  Where community, connection and support is our focus.

 

A BIT ABOUT ME

Navigating the new world

  Like so many others in 2020,  I found myself displaced from my studio and colleagues...in quarantine.  Needing to reinvent myself and my whole way of life and work, Fitness & Chi was born. I have been training and coaching clients for 14 years to improve their fitness and nutrition in a studio setting. As a result of the pandemic,  I have moved exclusively to the online community to serve my clients virtually.  What a year! The fitness world has been turned on it's ear and has evolved into a new era of online wellness.  We are all in need of not only physical health and resilience, but mental health and stress relief as well.  Whole health and wellbeing has become the heart of my training. My focus is group training and coaching online.  I believe community and connection is more important now than ever.

 

CLASSES I OFFER

Girl Stretching

THE SCIENCE OF STRETCHING 

FLEXIBILITY BASED YOGA 

This class is offered as targeted individual private sessions to address your personal needs, and as a more general group flexibility class.  Improve your flexibility and mobility to make everything you do easier and reduce joint pain. This is a must for EVERYONE.

Science of Stretching™ vs. Yin Yoga

Science of Stretching focuses on long, passive stretches and incorporates standing postures, myofascial release, and a three-pronged approach to nervous system and soft tissue change.

Unlike Yin, Science of Stretching does not teach meridians, does not advocate stretching ligaments, and does not teach or subscribe to structural limitation theory.

Science of Stretching™ is not a complete practice or exercise routine. It’s specifically focused on one thing—flexibility—and it’s meant to complement whatever else you’re doing for exercise.
