I’m Lorae Lyn, a Postural Alignment and Functional Movement Specialist and owner of Foundation Movement and Fitness. I help dedicated individuals go from pain to performance, by combining a tailored corrective movement program, neuro-retraining, cupping, blading, and body work. My belief in treating the body as a whole and not just individual parts has helped form my signature method, The Whole Sandwich Approach.
With a Kinesiology and Exercise Science degree from Fresno State(Go Dogs!) I started my first job as a Physical Therapy aid in a traditional orthopedic setting. I have also have had the opportunity to work in the physical therapy and rehabilitation field since 2006. Since then, I have worked with a variety of over 25 therapists with 6 different specialties, including being the head movement specialist for a sports chiropractor in Carlsbad.
Beign active is a big part of my life. I have been dancing since I was 3 years old, and playing musical instruments since 3rd grade. I have completed numerous half marathons from college till now. I am a flexibility instructor, a pole and aerial athlete, and an aerial strength and conditioning coach. When I am not teaching or training, you’ll find me out in the woods Jeep overlanding, camping, reading, hiking, and enjoying time with my 15 year old Australian Kelpie, Kaluah.
I am passionate about helping my clients do what they love for as long as they want to. I call my clients “The Dedicated.” They are the ones that love their activity and want to feel, move, and be their very best. They are looking to get out of pain,and get back to doing what they love. They are those grandparents that want to chase their grandkids around, the moms that want to get back to their sport after pregnancy, the dad that doesn’t want to peak at performance before 40, and that elite athlete, dancer, performer that wants to achieve their athletic excellence and longevity within their sport. The people that aren’t looking for mediocre, but optimal. In addition, many of my clients have come into my office seeking answers after they have tried almost everything, from traditional western medicine to eastern practices.
I work with my clients individually, teaching instructor/coach masterclasses, corporate posture and wellness programs, and hosting sport specific workshops. I believe that it is education that empowers people. That and combined with the Whole Sandwich Approach to truly fix the root of the problem, and keeps it from coming back.
