Samantha Sigurdson BKin, CFST-2
Samantha graduated from the University of Fraser Valley in 2015 with a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology. During this time, she discovered a keen interest in recovery and active rehabilitation. Samantha believes in teaching proper technique to maximize strength, mobility, flexibility, coordination and functional ability. So a natural choice given the core philosophy of Gravity. She strongly
believes the whole body works as a system so it can adapt to different scenarios in day-to-day life.
Since graduating, Samantha has gone on to receive certification in Fascial Stretch Therapy (Levels 1 and 2), Soft Tissue Release and Kinetic Link Training. She incorporates this post graduate course work into client rehabilitation when necessary. When not at work, Samantha is an active member of the Port Moody community engaging in hot yoga, boxing condition and walking with her dog.
