Welcome to beautiful autumn in Lake Tahoe. The air is getting markedly cooler and the aspens are turning yellow. It's a gorgeous time to live in the mountains and experience the remarkable changing nature.

In the Spotlight: Michelle Wald, Aston-Patterning Practitioner, P.T., L.M.T. and M.T.I.

Michelle Wald is passionate about the fundamentals of movement, massage and function since she was a teenager beginning her education in martial arts training, through out her Physical Therapy career and  up until the present as she is currently a faculty intern training to teach Aston® Kinetics 102. The focus on aligning posture to ease the effects of time, sequencing movement to improve power to optimize quality of life at any age, is the cornerstone of Michelle’s philosophy.  The importance of functional ability and graceful aging has always been a focus in her career in Physical Therapy since 1991. 
When she discovered Aston® Kinetics(AK) in 1998, it became clear that she had found a system that incorporated all her talents from an integrated perspective and graduated form the AK certification in 2000 and the Advanced Arthro-Kinetics certification in 2004. The common language of the Aston® Paradigm has created a seamless approach to apply in her private practice of advanced bodywork, movement coaching and fitness instruction. Whole body wellness is offered through health coaching and is incorporated to offer full support for her client’s interest and needs. Making Aston® Kinetics a household name has led Michelle to create and host the monthly info call “Meet Aston® Kinetics” introducing Aston® Kinetics as solution for bodyworkers to advance their expertise and highlighting an Aston practitioner to showcase how AK has improved their practice. Michelle’s fun and approachable style helps deliver the Aston® Kinetics information in an engaging and direct way.
