Hi friends! I'm Larissa Parson. I'm known in the Restore Your Core® community for my grounded, mindful movement & relaxation sequences. But my not-so-secret superpowers are x-ray vision and contagious enthusiasm for the delights and challenges of being in a body. I'm a vocal advocate for fat acceptance and body liberation.
I came to Restore Your Core after training as a Nutritious Movement Certified Restorative Exercise Specialist and had the great joy of being in the first U.S. cohort of RYC® teachers. I've been teaching Restore Your Core classes, workshops, and more since 2018. Since then, I've dug more deeply into all kinds of other stuff, including using writing as a form of working on the mindset patterns that often are as important to rehab as the physical patterns; I'm also a nerd about stuff like the nervous system and systemic oppression. What I love most about RYC® is how the method centers on developing a sense of body literacy, which is much more empowering than being scared into moving only one way. The magic of RYC® is you.
Restore Your Core is a method I return to over and over for my own body, and I love drawing on it together with my other modalities as a way of helping my clients get more deeply connected to their bodies in a way that feels safe, doable, and opens up the possibility of more ease and joy in their lives.
