Reconnect with your body to be strong, fit and flexible again.
Founded in human evolution back to the life you love.
Sign up and shake up assumptions about your body, with my monthly bitesize tips!
Are you struggling with pain or injury, or because you have to spend so much time at your desk?
Is your body limiting your ability to live life to the full? Do you feel disconnected from your body and found gym workouts, exercise classes or health practitioners unsuccessful, inconvenient, unappealing or even painful?
I hear you.
Welcome to Simply Move!™
An easy to follow programme of videos with detailed explanations, giving you the tools you need to take back control of your body, anytime, anywhere, on any device.
Shake up your assumptions on how you are designed to thrive. It’s not about which ‘exercise’ you choose but THE WAY YOU MOVE and HOW YOU ALIGN your WHOLE body that counts.
Moving freely away from pain comes through:
- reconnecting your mind and body
- tuning into the rhythm of your body
- moving intuitively and intentionally
- with efficient effective healthy movement
During my 30 years practicing as a physiotherapist with a Masters degree specialising in human movement, I have helped 1000’s of people regain belief in their body again. To fully engage and enjoy family, work, LIFE.
What’s exciting and has resonated with my clients is relating to the evolutionary journey of the human race.
Our ancestors didn’t have to look for ways to exercise, to be strong and lithe and dextrous because the way they had to move to live, made it happen. Life was their gym and we can do the same.

What Simply Move!™ covers…
6 sessions each approximately 30 minutes long, STRENGTHENING, STRETCHING AND BALANCING all areas of your body:
Session 1 POSTURE As you stand, sit, walk and move through your day.
Session 2 LEGS Move and power your whole body.

Session 4 HIPS AND KNEES Reduce pain in your back and legs.
Session 5 ANKLES AND TOES Gain supple feet and better balance.
Session 6 BACK AND NECK Freely move with poise and core strength.
Take a peek at the introduction…
It includes an extract on standing and walking posture.
Every video includes detailed explanations, so you understand exactly:
- how to move and exercise in a particular way
- why this is important
- what happens if you move or hold your body with tension and strain
- when and how to breathe and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
Everyone is different. Therefore modifications are suggested if you have limitations in your ability. Additionally there are progressions as your ability improves.
Time to pause, rewind and repeat
There are regular opportunities for you to pause each video, rewind and repeat the exercises, movements and advice that is discussed. Thinking time and the opportunity to reflect on the information you are learning about is built into every video. This is to enable you to reflect on how you can relate the information to your own body.
Your body is unique and recognising what is relevant to you in terms of improving your strength, flexibility and confidence, safely, intuitively and effectively is integral to the Simply Move!™ programme.
Warm ups and Cool downs
Each of the 6 sessions is preceded with a user friendly and practical warm up and completed with a relaxation focused cool down. The cool down includes detailed explanations for breathing techniques for effective, controlled breathing.
Believing in Your Body Again…
During my career as a physiotherapist, I have observed, listened and treated so many people whose lives once restricted by pain, injury and loss of confidence, can now live more of the life they want.
With Simply Move!™ I have brought together the key principles underpinning this wealth of knowledge. Highlighting what it is to be human, enables us to flourish and thrive in a way that is safe, intuitive, effective.
And you can do the same by:
- Reconnecting mind and body
- Being in tune with the rhythm of your body
- Moving more intuitively in everything you do, with every move you make.
My tried and tested approach…
A newfound self-awareness enabling you to listen, understand and respond to the rhythm of your body, as you travel through your day, will be yours.
I am with you every step of the way. I will be encouraging and guiding you to see yourself through fresh eyes, empowering you to reconnect and feel more confident and comfortable in your own body, to live your life more fully.
Reframe and reconnect with the needs of your body, safely intuitively and effectively with:
- low impact exercise and movements
- postural alignment
- controlled breathing techniques.
Feel free to ask me anything about the Simply Move!™ programme and how it will help YOU, believe in your body again.
Don’t just take my word for it…
Take a peek at some of the feedback if you wish to hear what others have said about Simply Move!™
“Your impact on my life has been life changing and I feel stronger and healthier now than I have done for years…where would we be without you?!” V. Podmore
“I feel that I am being taught by someone who “knows what they’re talking about”. Competency and expertise are in these videos and I feel that I am in good hands. Warmth and interest by you in the participant, is obvious. You tell me why the focus is on a particular part of the body e.g. arms and why it’s important that they are strong. Listening to the explanation, I am inspired to give it a go. I gain so much more when I do an exercise while following you. You are a wonderful teacher Rachel, perfect combination of expertise and empathy. It needs both and you have nailed it!” S. Young
“Simply Move!™ Online has been inspiring, just what we needed, especially in these testing times. I have found the videos invaluable as I have been able to succeed at my own pace. So good to be able to pause and also to go back over certain exercises in my own time. The instructions are very clear and it’s great to be able to see you demonstrate each move. The comments are always informative and encouraging.” S. Brassington
“Thanks for all your wise advice. You always inspire us to help our bodies (and minds!) become better in a positive and achievable way.” S. William
“The pace and structure of each video is spot on. The exercises are easy to follow and delivered informatively with clear instructions. You made the exercises very accessible and this, along with your engaging approach, made me feel as though you were in the room with me. ” J. D’Souza
“Repetition is helping me to get better acquainted with the movements and things I need to remember and my awareness of my body. I feel a connection that we are now doing this activity together. It’s not a competition and no one else is watching. The warm up helps me not only to prepare my body, but to temporarily calm my busy mind and push aside ‘the stuff’ that is normally swirling around in my head. A little mental holiday. I’m thinking… be calm…observe…think…listen…observe your body from outside and within… now take this experience forward into your day and keep it with you throughout the day. It’s ok to forget sometimes……(Rachel does and she says it’s OK!).” S. Draper
