Lindsey Hanahan

 

A Certified Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analyst (CLMA), has a BA in Dance and a Graduate Certification in Movement Studies from the University of Utah/IMS. She is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT), and a PMA® Certified Pilates Teacher (PMA-CPT).

 

Lindsey spent 6 years on staff in the physical medicine department at Denver Injury, a multi-disciplinary clinic specializing in complex injury rehab, where she collaborated with physical therapists and doctors on patient care. Her original Pilates training was done privately with Donna McLean Studios, followed by completing the Polestar® Pilates training program and working at Polestar Denver.

 

She was honored to be accepted for the Balanced Body Pilates Faculty training with the gifted Nora St. John and is excited to be on the Balanced Body MOTR faculty as well. She received her CoreAlign instructor training locally from Carrie Lamb, DPT and Balanced Body Master Instructor for CoreAlign, and continues her studies regularly.  Her continuing education work includes courses in lumbar stabilization (with Mark Commerford and Paul Hodges), thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), Aston Patterning, Pathokinesiology of the Upper and Lower Extremities with Lise Stolze, Advanced Gait and Rotational Sports with Dav Cohen, PNF Patterning and Upper Body Stability/Mobility with Irene Dowd, and Pfilates (pelvic floor plyometrics) with Bruce Crawford, MD.  

Since studying the Pfilates work, Lindsey has delved into the endless links between pelvic floor dysfunction and

movement dysfunction. She is part of the Lumbo-Pelvic Pain group at Presbyterian/St. Lukes hospital in Denver founded by urologist Nel Gerig, MD, teaches regular Pfilates courses to help those with common pelvic floor weaknesses to quickly regain that muscular function, and privately with others who struggle with over-active pelvic floors. Her unique combination of Bartenieff Fundamentals and Pilates training has proven to be a dynamic and effective tool when educating clients in this area.

Lindsey relocated to Denver in 2001 from New York City, where she was a professional dancer, teacher, choreographer, director and producer. She has taught dance in the US, Canada and China and has choreographed regionally and in Denver where she received the Marlowe Award for her work on Next Stage Theater’s productions of Chess and Assassins. She is a proud member of Actors’ Equity Association, and former Chair of AEA’s Denver Area Liaison Committee.

As a student athlete, Lindsey’s sport of choice was track and field. As an adult, she is an avid tennis player, enjoys volleyball and softball, and loves working with individual and team athletes including younger athletes looking to improve their overall movement and improve their competitive skills.
