Angela Sundberg
Bodyscapes owner and founder, Angela Sundberg began her career in rehab, working with athletes.

Angela is a STOTT PILATES-certified Instructor-Trainer, a certified Gyrotonic/Gyrokinesis® instructor, CSCS, and a member of the National Athletic Trainers' Association.

Mission Statement
As optimal movement teachers, our goal is to help our clients reeducate the proper muscles to work at the proper time, with the proper effort. We work to repattern how muscles fire.

It would be much easier to give clients a Swiss Ball program or have them do a bunch of 'abs'. It's more challenging to help clients learn how to recruit their muscles in the most efficient order. We show clients how reactivate their stability muscles, those that protect joint neutrality. For the lumbar spine, we use the transversus abdominus, multifidus and the posterior fasciculi of psoas.

Muscles that control joint neutrality can only be trained prior to adding a load. Strengthening is not appropriate until you have reactivated those stabilizing muscles.
