Private Study

Private study with Mary is an opportunity to develop skills that you can use for the rest of your life. Skills focused on living happily in your body. What you learn will support your efforts to live an active, pain free life while studying at a pace that is uniquely tailored to you.  Mary will bring all of her education and experience to the table when choosing how to begin with you, and how to progress your program to help you evolve in your understanding of how your body moves most efficiently. 

I was hitting a point in my life where the small, needling aches and pains due to daily habits were becoming more intense; plus, I suffered from SAD every winter. Studying with Mary has turned everything around. I move better, feel better, sleep better and now want to be in motion throughout my day.

What do you want from your private study experience?

After reviewing “Mary’s Methods”, you may have a clear idea of what you would like to emphasize in your training. We can use The MELT Method techniques only, or blend them with the Neurostrength curriculum. You may want to do a more mindful practice and explore the tension release work from various somatic practices. We can make the focus of your sessions prime movement patterns such as squats, lunges, and pushing and pulling with the TRX suspension trainer. The possibilities are many.

Mary invites you to contact her via email or phone to initiate the process, mary@thebodymoving.com or 206-251-0690. An initial complimentary discussion and, in some cases, a visit to the studio, will help you and Mary determine the best starting point. At the first appointment you will discuss your health history and your goals for your private study.

Fee for Private Study: 55-minute session is $70, 75-minute session is $75, with a minimum commitment of 4x per month. The fee for the month is due at the first session of the month; thereby, your commitment is 1-month at a time.

Fee for 2-session Introduction: It can be difficult to navigate your options for personal movement study. You have to sift through your available choices, nearby work or home; plus, you may feel you have to know exactly what type of experience you want, when perhaps you don't. An introduction will give you the insight needed to make a decision. You can book a 2-session Introduction with Mary at the rate of $120. Each of the 2 sessions is 55 minutes. These are available on a limited basis. After speaking with Mary and arranging your introduction, you can pay for it here: 

Taxes: State tax will be added to all fees quoted above as in the State of Washington “personal training” is classified as a “retail” activity.

Cancellation Policy: A minimum 24-hour notice is required and the session must be rescheduled at a mutually agreeable time within the month in which the missed session occurs. The rescheduled session cannot be substituted for a regularly scheduled session. There are no refunds or makeups for sessions missed with less than 24 hours notice.
