Regarding Smovey and fitness, I have been personally dealing with a neurological movement condition and workouts with the Smoveys are tremendously beneficial! The Smovey vibrations feel enormously soothing to my nervous system: like a movement glide, promoting opening in my musculature, natural help with posture and increased stability for balance. I always feel stronger and less tight after a smovey workout.

“The Smovey rings are a useful tool for mobilizing the body in a contained, safe way. They organize energy through sound, movement and rhythm, helping to link the autonomic and somatic (systems).” Regarding Smovey and fitness, I have been personally dealing with a neurological movement condition and workouts with the Smoveys are tremendously beneficial! I use the rings for walking and exercise to a variety of YouTube workouts.

I am an Egoscue postural alignment specialist and I am working with people who suffer from chronic pain (Neck, shoulder, hip, back, knee and ankle pain) as well as with people with spinal conditions. Very often the root cause of chronic pain is postural misalignment and muscle imbalance.
I was looking for more “functional movement forms” and contacted Bernd Zimmermann, the founder of ANWA the American Nordic Walking Association and also the CEO of smovey NorthAmerica. I was immediately intrigued by smovey VIBROSWING-System as I was confident it would be a great addition to my postural alignment work as it increases the ROM (range of motion) of the shoulder joints but also strengthens the muscles around the shoulder joints, the upper, lower back and the muscles of the core and lower body. I got certified as a smovey coach I started working with my clients in Charlottesville/VA and integrated it successfully to our my Parkinson's Group

After learning about the benefits of Nordic Walking, I felt it would be a great activity for me to introduce to my community. Living in a small, remote town in Wyoming. I was very happy to discover that ANWA offered remote online training in basic and advanced levels of Nordic Walking.Bernd Zimmermann provided all the materials I needed for the certification, including a skills DVD, and met with me several times to review videos of my walking technique. After achieving my Basic Certification, Bernd provided ongoing support to help me successfully teach several classes.
