Sandy Gross, Movement Optimist
Sandy Gross, Founder
Hi, I’m Sandy. I’ve spent the majority of my life fascinated with and learning about the human body. I help people resolve pain, prevent injury and most importantly, I can teach you to live better in your body and to live READY for anything. In a word, I am a teacher – I teach you how to fix yourself and to live pain free with greater self confidence at any age.
As a proven problem-solver, my work is grounded in functional movement and exercise science. It is based on the fundamentals and very purposeful – it will make sense to you and be completely relevant to and manageable for your life and work. I’m also an eternal student, seeking out the best practices in exercise science, biomechanics, yoga, corrective exercise strategies, recovery methods and many more self therapies.
Here’s a sampling of some of the training I’ve received over my 30 year career: BA in Journalism (SJSU), E-RYT 500 (experienced-registered yoga teacher), Yoga Tune Up® (Integrated teacher), Roll Model® Method Practitioner (Teacher Trainer), ACSM/Health Fitness Instructor and Functional Movement Systems FMS screen – Level 2 Practitioner. From 2003-2016, I founded and operated Evolution Yoga, one of the first yoga studios in Cleveland, which became a nucleus in the region where yoga teachers, fitness pros and sports coaches came to learn about yoga other mind/body practices.
My clients include the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers, Kent State University’s 2017 MAC Men’s Basketball Champions, Kent State University’s 2015 MAC Women’s Soccer Champions, Notre Dame College’s 2017 D1AA Men’s Rugby National Champions, Cleveland Heights boys basketball team, several Cleveland Browns players and top performers who visit David Copperfield’s private island in the Bahamas, Musha Cay.
Many more of my inspiring clients, however, are those who strive for greatness as employees, CEO’s, parents, recreational athletes and non-athletes who simply want more out of life – to stay off the bench and to play the long game. Let’s GO!!!
