The movement that's meant to move you - holistically

Transformative Movement is a unique method built on 4 movement pillars - Restore, Flow, Empower and Release, which embody Yoga for Mental Health, Pilates and Dance principles.

Informed by Neuroscience and a somatic approach, TMM offers you both energising and relaxing movement tools to improve physical health and achieve a balanced state of mind, so you can develop a more positive relationship with your body, manage anxiety and reach an optimal state of wellbeing.

Restore, Release. Flow and Empower.

Most importantly: breathe, feel and move.

Private coaching

Sometimes you need floaters for some time to swim.
Sometimes you need training wheels to help you enjoy the act of cycling.
Sometimes you need an encouraging voice standing and cheering for you from bleachers or a stadium and none of those times were you less talented or brave.

You are simply aware of what works and doesn’t work out for you.

No matter the reason or concern or block, this one-on-one coaching plan is here to support you into embracing what truly moves you. 

Now, you take the spotlight...

"I adore Vanessa's classes. I love how there is always intent and purpose behind the movements, you feel like you're learning while working out at no extra effort. She has such a calm and gentle energy, but she's really a hard taskmaster! You always sweat, shake and burn at the same time as being loosened out and limbered up. Cannot recommend her highly enough, for any level." 

Jessy B. C. 

"Your teaching is really superior to anything I’ve experienced so far, the classes are fun (even thought it hurts!) and my body and posture have become much stronger in such a short period of time". 

Zoe F. 

"It felt as if the tension in my cramped body could finally release. You were really respectful and gave many options to choose from, so I was stimulated to really listen to my body and tailor my practice to what I needed."

Meriam B. 

"I really love your teaching style, which helps me to push myself yet is always done with creativity and kindness toward the body (and mind!). Your classes bring in stronger elements of Dance and free movement that bring the same joy that I used to get from Ballet, Modern, Jazz and other dance practices as a teenager, and feel I am just rediscovering now. The same physical benefits are still there but with additional mental stimulation and great feeling of fun, as well as the small achievements of mastering certain movements with control." 

Stephanie M.

"Your sessions help enormously with stress relief, so calming and relaxing.   Nothing I have ever done before has been of this high standard. You have such a wealth of knowledge that I feel safe in the practices I am doing with you.  So a big thank you for all the work you must continually put into this programme to make it what it is for us all, I am very grateful".

Jill B.

"Vanessa carefully teaches the language, techniques and postures so that amazingly, you hear her voice and your body knows intuitively what to do. Her teaching is intelligent - not overloaded with any particular philosophical or psychological viewpoints - but gently informing you of where to look if such things interest you. As I approach one year of Vanessa's teaching, I realise that I have (for the first time in my life) actually transformed and felt able to maintain my non cardio exercise in a way that fits comfortably into my working week. My body has never been stronger, flexible and more toned. Vanessa is a master at teaching online, which is not an easy thing to do!"
