About Rebecca Wendlandt
I am a passionate lover of movement! I have studied various types of dance since I was little, but have focused mainly on ballet for the last decade. In 2019, I became a certified barre workout instructor to help guide others along their journey to achieve their movement goals. In 2020, I began training with dance physiotherapist Lisa Howell in order to support dancers in increasing their skill and avoiding injury. Over the course of 2021 and 2022, I completed a vigorous year and a half long training program with Gina Schatz to become a Schatz Level 1 & 2 Practitioner. As a Schatz Method Practitioner I am equipped to address movement obstacles and pain arising from musculoskeletal disfunction and misalignments.
