About Alex & Natural Mobility
Therapist & Instructor
Alex Schenker is a professional movement teacher, martial arts instructor, and manual therapist specializing in mobility development, and natural movement training.
Alex's mother is a yoga teacher, and an energy healer. Naturally, he was raised with energy work and meditation. At 17 he became a Reiki practitioner, which lead him to begin studying Shiatsu therapy through a 2 year diploma program in 2005. He has been practicing professionally ever since, picking up a few other complementary practices along the way. His training has left him with some interesting corrective exercises that he integrates in his classes and one on one sessions, including the yoga-like Meridian Exercises, self-Shiatsu, and Sotai structural realignment exercises.
Alex dabbled in many martial arts throughout his childhood and adolescence before finally finding Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu and falling into that rabbit hole. After 14 years of training, Alex visited the headquarters in Japan to test for his 5th degree black belt and became a Shidoshi (instructor).
Most recently, Alex has become a MovNat Master Trainer; this entails completing the level 1, 2, and 3 certifications, as well as the Aquatics and Combatives certifications. MovNat is a system of fitness and physical education based on restoring human movement potential through exploring Natural Movements and building efficiency in movement skills.
Alex teaches small-group classes, as well as providing one-on-one therapeutic treatments and MovNat training sessions.
