I am writing to thank you for your expertise in helping me re-learn techniques so that I am safely using the correct muscles,etc. during all daily activities. My L5 and S1 have been bothering me for years and have impacted my ability to function and enjoy all the hiking,swimming and other fitness activities I love to do. I discovered Foundation Training through my Chiropractor and decided to search for a FT trainer. You fit the bill perfectly. Your knowledge and ability to modify the exercises have helped me feel stronger not only in sessions at your studio but when I practice at home. I feel more confident and move with more ease.

I've been a Pilates teacher for 30 years. I went to Rose after Inoticed some positive changes in one of my long-time clients. Myclient told my about Foundation Training and invited me to join herfor a class. I did and loved not only the work, but Rose'sextraordinary teaching. Rose is able to challenge me while making surethat I am not putting myself at risk. Her in depth body knowledge andsense makes me feel safe. I knew right away I was in good hands andcould trust my body with her. The work challenges my balance while itstrengthens my entire body. I love the way it opens and relaxes myupper body. I leave each session feeling centered, stretched, andstrengthened. Because Rose is intuitive and listens well to herclient's needs, I would feel confident recommending her to anyone.

Like many avid golfers I had constant low level pain in my lower back. I tried all sorts of methods to fix it but nothing worked and I assumed I would just have to keep playing through the pain. Foundation Training fixed me after several sessions with Rose. I've continued training with Rose for over a year and the pain seems to be gone for good. But Foundation Training is much more than a quick fix. My posture is improved, I've learned a lot about breath control and I'm far more flexible than I've ever been. Rose is a funny, a bossy teacher with a deep understanding of the human body and how to improve it using Foundation and yoga.

I have been attending foundation training classes from Rose for over a year now, she is a wonderful teacher she makes me feel good about my self and has helped me improve and be aware of my posture. She is a great teacher and very patient. I would highly recommend her to be my teacher in any class she was teaching.Love her she is great __Sally

A friend and I started seeing Rose about a year ago for Foundation Training. We are in our late mid ages and both were worried about our posture and our tendency to slouch and about general weakness in our core areas. Rose's knowledge of the body and her keen intuition about what people need to help them get stronger blew me away from day one. She teaches with expertise, humor, and compassion. I've now incorporate her training into all aspects of my life, from working at my desk, to standing, walking and lifting. I'm convinced, it is not gray hair or wrinkles that ages us, but our posture. If you want to feel stronger and stand straighter, I highly recommend making an appointment to see Rose (on line during our stay at home orders and in person as our lives resume normalcy.) In the meantime, chest up, chin back, back of the neck long!

We were referred to Rose by a trusted yoga teacher and educator who thought highly of her skills and knowledge of anatomy. Rose quickly adapted to our lives and individual needs and introduced Foundation Training to us. We have since learned new and valuable approaches to core strength and back health.Rose's comprehensive education as Yoga Teacher, Deep Tissue Massage Ball Therapist and Foundation Trainer provides her with a unique set of skills unlike any instructor we have ever known. We have and continue to benefit so much from Rose's knowledgeable approach to therapeutic body work. She has helped us through sports injuries, chronic pain from old injuries and plain old aches and pains from body misalignment.She is truly a gifted and compassionate teacher who is serious about her instruction yet so lighthearted and funny. Anyone could benefit from Rose's instruction and guidance!

I feel two inches taller because my posture has improved so much.This in turn has given me more confidence and a new feeling of assertiveness.Rose is a focused and skilled teacher.I learned to use my larger muscles to hold up my frame more efficiently.The exercises are simple to execute but have a profound impact._Thanks.

A friend and I have been taking private Foundation Training classes with Rose for the last couple of months, and it has been a game changer for me in terms of how my body feels.The improvement in my chronic neck and shoulder pain and in my problematic feet and ankles is amazing.Rose is an excellent teacher who is able to adapt the way she teaches to the individual client. For example, in our private sessions my friend usually understands the mechanics of the pose Rose is teaching immediately, but I often need additional descriptions that paint more of a visual picture of the movement.Rose is completely understanding of this and has an amazing gift for finding the right words. She's a kind, delightful, and extremely knowledgeable teacher. I recommend her so highly!

I was diagnosed with chondromalacia on my right knee, after I had to get an MRI from a dog bite I suffered on my left knee. Both knees were in a lot of pain, to say the least. And I was finding it extremely hard to do any kind of exercise. Until I heard about foundation training and thankfully found Rose. I've only been working with her for the past two months and I have seen noticeable improvements in my muscle strength and posture. She designed our training sessions to accommodate my knee issues, and I can say that the pain has decreased and my body has gotten smarter in the way it carries itself - if that makes any sense. She is so knowledgeable about anatomy and how to take care of the muscles that lift and support each joint and bone. Plus she is an absolute joy to work with. I am so grateful to her and all the ways she has helped me and inspired me to move my body. After each session with her I feel an inch taller and my knees and feet feel so much better. I highly recommend her as a trainer to anyone who is dealing with an injury, or just anyone who wants to experience strength and proper body alignment. Thank you, Rose!

Hi Rose! I just saw my osteopathic doctor that does manipulative treatments on my back.She said that today my back feels much better than normal and don't have any of my lumbar vertebrae out of place like I normally do and everything stiff and locked is localized to the SI joint area and pelvis. She said the Piriformis feels good!She said I must be doing something right.

hank you so much for all that you do for us in class and just being a wonderful, giving person! i had a nasty headache and body pain at work today. when i got home i laid like warm pizza dough on my balls, slowly up and down my back, and then did some other moves we do in class. the whole time i just kept thinking, "thank you rose, this is saving me..." i feel miles better now and i know it's all to do with the self healing you've taught me.

I've had the pleasure of working privately with Rose for over seven months.Rose is a very rare and precious being: a born teacher. Incredibly attentive,her focus is on me, and what I need the moment I walk in the door. She is able to describe things in a way that I can easily and quickly grasp, and she has so much passion for what she does that it is contagious. I always leave inspired and energized.Our main work together has been in Foundation Training, but she has so many tools in her toolbox,that she knows just when to suggest a subtle change in a position, or an exercise from another discipline that might work better in the moment.An incredibly compassionate and warm person, Rose's understanding of others suffering may come from having worked with her own body pain for so many years, but she also strikes me as just naturally that way.A super bonus of working with Rose Moran is that you will have made a very wonderful friend.
