Daris Tendler - Bio

I am a passionate, knowledgeable, personable graduate from Clarkson University in Upstate New York, I have been on the move discovering new and different ways of movement. I have gained mentors from around the world that I have gotten the privilege to learn from. Movement isn’t just physical it is mental as well.


"To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear" -Buddha

Medical Exercise Specialist and Fascia Stretch Therapist are my specialties; I have dedicated my life to movement and continuous education. I am always learning and I want to share that knowledge in every class and one on one session.

I have worked with a variety of clients; from young athletes to chronically pained older adults. We can’t stop the aging process but we can slow it down and that is where I choose to send my focus; the everyday wear and tear that we can’t control. What I have learned through the recovery process myself is that there are no shortcuts. You have to do the work, do the therapy and start from the very basics and that is how I design my programs. I understand that accomplishment looks different for everyone. It may be developing strength, sleeping pain free, increasing movement, regaining range of motion from a recent trauma, fixing dysfunctional movement patterns or even minimizing pain in a certain exercise.

When creating programs, it is my personal philosophy that there isn’t anything you can’t do.  The modifications may look different but the outcomes are the same. I really am grateful to be able to help individuals to stay happy, healthy and moving.
