Hey there! 

I’m Petra.

A mover, a coach, and a guide dedicated to helping you create a sustainable body that feels amazing!

As a movement coach, I help vibrant, dynamic people learn how they can enjoy their bodies for a lifetime!

Through one-on-one training – live or by Skype, classes, and workshops, I help people like you learn how to give their bodies the movement they need to thrive.

One of the things I’m often asked is “How on earth did you get started in all this?”

Ten years ago, I was a corporate lawyer working in one of Canada’s most prestigious – and busy – law firms.

Being at the office from 8AM to 11PM was a normal day for me and I sometimes would just sleep under my desk instead of going home. Despite my crazy job, I ran long distances, worked out hard, practiced yoga, and spent weekends mountain biking.

On the outside, my health seemed pretty great.

From the inside, the story wasn’t so good. I was stressed out and exhausted. I actually hated my job but I didn’t know what else to do. Exercise was my stress relief but my body hurt everywhere.

I had a laundry list of body issues: plantar fasciitis, shin splints, hip issues, mid-back pain, sneeze-pee, nerve issues in my fingers and toes, shoulder impingement, neck pain, TMJ and constant headaches.

I was only 30…but my body felt like it was 60.

I was scared and frustrated, but I was also convinced that there had to be a way to get better.

My search to get better went down a lot of different avenues.

Physiotherapy. Chiropractic. Acupuncture. Osteopathy. Massage therapy. Naturopaths. Rehab Pilates.

If it was out there, I tried it. I spent thousands of dollars, and at the end of the day, my body still hurt.

My life turned around 180 degrees when I discovered the work of Katy Bowman and the world of better movement.

My nagging injuries weren’t a mystery at all – they were the result of poor body alignment and a lot of junk food movement.

Everything fell into place. I finally understood why everything was going wrong, and I had a road-map to fix it.

By learning better movement habits and changing my lifestyle so that I could move more all day every day, I’ve made amazing improvements.

It’s taken hard work – but every time I go for a walk without hurting my feet, sneeze without peeing, and climb a tree without hurting my shoulder, I know that it’s all been totally worthwhile.

These days, my body feels completely different.

As I learned to fix myself, I realized that health and healing had become my passion. I quit my office job and became a full-time movement coach.

I love helping people who are tired of hurting, and who aren’t satisfied being told that drugs, surgery or pain are their only options.

I am profoundly committed to helping my clients reclaim the state of resilient health that is our body’s full potential.

I’m here to help you make the transition from the world of exercise to the world of natural, nutritious movement and the wellness it brings.

As of August, 2018, I’m making some big life changes.

My partner, Chris, and I have decided we need to spend more time moving outdoors and more time meeting people in real life. So we’re taking this show on the road and will be travelling around North America for the next year with our Toyota 4Runner and a tent.

But – I’ll still be coaching online and in person and offering online courses. And I’m really thrilled to be planning some ways to meet up and move together in real life. All the best updates are always on my mailing list – you can sign up right here.
