Editors' note

The Vital Gaitway Center for Body Education is an innovative wellness facility that focuses on teaching the Whole Body Alignment Principles of Restorative Exercise™. Developed by biomechanist Katy Bowman, the program helps individuals restore their motor skills, muscle extensibility, and overall health by using objective alignment markers.

The Center’s approach is grounded in the Biomechanical Model of Preventive Medicine, which emphasizes the importance of all-over muscle use for optimal health. The modern lifestyle has led to a decline in natural, reflex-driven regeneration, often resulting in common ailments due to poor motor skills. By practicing simple movements and re-educating the body, these issues can be addressed and corrected.

At The Vital Gaitway, participants will learn:

  • What their body should be able to do
  • What their body can do
  • The specific movements needed to restore muscle functions

The facility offers biomechanics-based educational and movement programs, as well as private and group sessions, both in-person and through Skype video consultations. They also provide group presentations for various organizations interested in optimal body alignment and Restorative Exercise™.

The team at The Vital Gaitway is passionate about helping people use their bodies correctly in order to relieve pain and prevent disease. They go beyond traditional treatments by teaching individuals how to move, sit, and stand in proper alignment, leading to lasting improvements in various aspects of health, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • Increased mobility
  • Enhanced strength
  • Improved bone density
  • Better organ function

To support participants in their journey, The Vital Gaitway offers Alignment Data Sheets, instructional videos, Restorative Exercise™ accessories, and an online prescription generator for professionals to create customized exercise plans.

The Vital Gaitway’s vision is to empower individuals to make positive changes in their lives, promoting a more sustainable, healthier, and active lifestyle.

Our standard modern lifestyle is making us weak, unhappy and for most of us, eventually sick. It’s a shame, because the antidote is known and simple: be more active, avoid eating processed crap, and connect more with nature and each other.

While simple, it isn’t easy. Foresighted makes it easier though, regardless of where you are in your journey.  Discover all the free resources available below.

Be brave. Be strong. Be foresighted.
