Adelyn began a practice in bodywork in 1993. To the first decade’s training in Myofascial Release, Structural Alignment, and Upledger Craniosacral Therapy (CST), she added experience in running, cycling, hiking, Iyengar (alignment based yoga), and a lower back injury to inform her work. The second decade included a 2-year certification in Biodynamic CST (based in Neuroscience/Somatic Psychology), Thai Massage, and several dance forms. She wove together experiential and linear learning to design an IBA in Applied Somatic Arts at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. Her third decade is an embodied exploration of how structural issues, pain, and injury patterns occur when the nervous system creates physical adaptations to stressors. She currently teaches Somatic Awareness and Stress Regulation privately and at the workplace, is a teacher-in-training for Body Intelligence, and a Continuing Education credit provider for massage therapists.

Mark played handball and squash for years before a knee injury took him off the court. His doctor told him given his age and type of injury, handball was out of the question. He also said Mark would probably never squat again. Mark decided to slowly work at increasing his lower body strength; he ended up falling in love with barbell training and has been squatting, deadlifting, and bench pressing extremely heavy weights ever since!
When David graduated from high school, he weighed less than 100 pounds. Over the past five years, he’s focused all of his energy on adding lean mass and getting as strong as possible. He’s currently training to become a competitive powerlifter.
