What I do


I’m Jillian, a Restorative Exercise Specialist / personal trainer located in Ottawa/Gatineau.  I help people get rid of pain and dysfunction in their body through exercise and lifestyle changes. Whether it’s a bad knee, foot pain, leaky bladder (pelvic floor problems), back pain, or even low bone density, learning to move better can often drastically reduce or even eliminate certain types of pain and disease.

Things like footwear, how much you sit, even how you walk can have a serious impact on the health of your body.  With a mixture of new movement strategies (changing HOW you move), Restorative Exercise™ (corrective exercises), and developing a more active lifestyle, it’s amazing how many issues can be alleviated (even if your doctor said surgery is the only option!).


If leaving your house is difficult (due to pain, injury, or a new baby) or you’re just lazy and want to stay in your jammies, I would love to come work with you in your house (email me about it!).  Or, you can take a class with me, or schedule a private session at Holistic Roots, 475 Cambridge Street South.

If you’re ready to make the transition to a healthy, active lifestyle, to take back control of your body, to get rid of pain and be healthy again, then drop me a line or give me a call!  I’ll help you figure out ways to move MORE, to sit LESS (we all know that sitting kills,right?) to heal injuries, reduce pain all over your body, without having to devote hours of time to the gym or an exercise regime.

Living an active lifestyle doesn’t have to mean devoting hours to exercise or joining a gym. See what others have to say about their experience with Live Aligned workshops, personal training, and movement coaching!
