What is Elements Movement?

Elements Movement calls the classic BMO building located in the reviving Townsite in Powell River home. This unique facility blends the historic building, neighborhood, and old school equipment, with the latest in proven techniques, physical methods and philosophies regarding performance, health and wellness.

 

Why learn at Elements Movement?

Our perspective is wide, and we teach instead of instruct. We harness the best techniques from a variety of disciplines and methods to deliver what works. We lead from the front, practice what we preach and stand shoulder to shoulder with every unique student.

 

What makes Elements Movement different?

Our approach is quality first, establishing a foundation for each student so their journey at Elements is safe, effective and allows for progressions and advancement. It’s easy to see that a house built on a foundation of sand won’t work. We help students in establishing a foundation of proper movement patterns, range of motion, baseline strength and body wisdom. To progress towards your goals and have them be sustainable and solid instead of falling through your fingertips like a handful of sand.

 

What do we appreciate in the members of Elements Movement?

The willingness to embrace ‘beginners mind’.

To support and be supported by the ‘tribe’ of the studio.

To develop a relationship with your body, listening for signs of too much or not enough.

A commitment to yourself.

And most importantly… embrace the silliness, fun, weird and joy that is life as a Human Being.

Andrew Dow, Founder and Teacher of Elements Movement.

Melissa Dow

Melissa is inspired by our ability to feel greater vitality and connection to our body’s through movement, breath work & self-reflection.

She is a registered 200hr yoga teacher and wellness counselor and feels passionate about weaving the two together so we can feel more at home in our body. She has facilitated for youth groups, women’s events and addiction centers as well as one on one.

Melissa moved to Powell River with her partner in 2016 and has been falling more in love with this coastal town every day. When not rolling around on her mat, she’s getting nerdy about herbal medicine, drawing mandalas, exploring the forests & dancing to funk music
