Cassidy Moore PMA® CPT and owner of The Body Gallery in San Francisco loves teaching clients who are devoted and inspired to feel good in their bodies. She works best with clients who want to train methodically, deeply and are open to change. She focuses on muscular strength, balance and integrity of the body. Your session with her will require focus, patience, exploration and a conscience effort. When you train with Cassidy you will develop deep and subtle body awareness skills and learn the nuances of your muscular habits, essential to change the chronic movement patterns ingrained in your body.
She is a hands on instructor always providing lots of positive, compassionate and encouraging feedback as her clients work hard to overcome their habitual muscular patterns. Even though the sessions are challenging Cassidy and her clients usually find moments of true laughter.
