About Fajardo Method Movement
Fajardo Method Movement is a virtual movement education studio featuring the Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics, created by the founder, Alicia Fajardo. The Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics teaches movement education and motor re-patterning in conjunction with nervous system awareness. This modality is appropriate for a diverse population of clientele, from those dealing with stress or anxiety, those wanting to avoid surgery, or those who are experiencing discomfort in their body or lack of energy. It is also effective for highly accomplished athletes and those individuals that want to improve their movement biomechanics for skill efficiency or overall health and wellness.
The Fajardo Method is able to address this wide scope of individuals and their needs because it addresses nervous system adaptability. It is based on movement principles that govern our neural, skeletal and muscular systems. Specifically, it covers appropriate neuro-recruitment, ideal joint arthrokinematics, ideal valve system biomechanics and the function of the kinetic chain.
Alicia has over 35 years of experience in the fitness industry and holds a BS in Exercise Science and Sports Studies. A longtime movement enthusiast, Alicia has studied, practiced, and taught many different types of movement throughout her career.
