illuminated view clips of our story

Watch our process as Urban Movement goes from the yoga and pilates studio to design and fabrication. Urban Movement builds another layer of health into the design for the home or urban environment that is based on movement and human sustainability. This provides opportunity to engage one's body, the home, work environment and the city in healthful activity, beyond the gym, building health and wellness into the choreography of our daily lives.

What are we doing? -- Creating design teams for Urban Movement; inclusive of architects, designers, planners, government agencies and cities. These designs explode the gym/our time at yoga throughout our daily lives. The designs embed movement and health into the design of our home, our offices, our cities, private and public spaces.

How does this design change our lives? -- Movement is life. Working with the root cause rather than the symptom, we work on teams to design healthy environments to ensure human sustainability. Healthy movement and relaxation, ultimately leads to reduced health care costs and energizes people as they move through their day, engaging their environment in proactive healthy living.
