Learn to move your body with ease...

 
 
 

You're a mover, always striving to be better and do better. But...

 
 

You’re tired of constantly feeling stiff, sore, and living with unresolved injuries. Fascial Stretch Therapy can set you free! Welcome to a new way of getting back into your healthy, balanced body and stress-free mind! 

 

Fascia is the most prevalent tissue in the body, connecting all joints, muscles, and organs.

Tight and stiff fascia means tight and stiff body. Stretched and balanced fascia leads to freedom and joy. 

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a form of manual therapy that works on the neuromyofascial connective tissue rather than isolated muscle treatment. It enhances and integrates your current health and fitness routine to help you reach your goals faster and with ease. 

By stretching your fascia on a regular basis you will: 

  • Decrease recovery time so you can get moving again with ease.
  • Increase strength, agility, and power.
  • Reduce risk of injury.
  • Improve posture
  • Reduce stress, gain confidence and relaxation
  • Ignite your inner dance!

I’m Ivana Matovina. Welcome to my website! Here I'll share with you the tools and ideas I’ve acquired through my journey in dance, fitness, and yoga. I'll help you reach your own fitness and wellness goals faster and with ease.

After just one hour of fascial stretching, you'll move with more ease and grace

I have always been a very active person. But when I injured my shoulder from a cycling accident, I was unable to do the things I love to do. Doctors and physiotherapists were no help. Ivana gave me exercises and stretches to help me speed up my recovery, and I was back to myself in no time. Her exercises were easy, fun, and took very little time from my busy schedule. Furthermore, her exercises strengthened my muscles to help prevent future injuries. I am now more fit and active than ever before. Thanks, Ivana

Ivana has inspired me to make movement a bigger part of my work and personal life. The 642 muscles we each own were made to move, not sit around all day like most of us do. I learned that the hard way, when I ended up in the hospital last year with what felt like a broken back. It was and still is Ivana’s customized routine that allows me to release tension throughout the day and continue working at the computer. As a ballet dancer, Ivana has a unique insight into movement. She creates short but surprisingly effective routines for typical ailments or just overall invigoration. She’s also a warm, caring person, who believes in community and cares about how you’re doing, long after your session with her. If you have stiffness from too much sitting, or you’d just like a quick, efficient way to feel better, I highly recommend you try out one of Ivana’s Vitality Sessions.
