The majority of my training is done in private sessions on weekdays from 9am-2pm. Tupler Technique recommends 3 sessions over 6 weeks. However, I find that each client has different needs and training will generally consist of 1-3 sessions depending on the severity of your condition. The first private session is always 90 minutes long ($150). If we decide that you could benefit from more than one session, it is generally recommended that we see each other in 2-3 week intervals, with the 3rd session being the final session. If it is not realistic to meet this often, you will have flexibility with scheduling sessions and can space them out over a shorter or longer period of time if necessary..  The second session is usually 60 minutes ($100) and the third session is usually 60-75 minutes ($100-$125).  

Currently there are no Group Workshops or Group Seminars on the Schedule. If there is a Group Workshop being offered, it will occur at the beginning of week 1 (1.5-3hrs depending on the size of your group), the end of week 3 (2hr) and the end of week 6 (2hr).  Seminars are sometimes offered and are for those who just want the first session of the workshop. The length of the Seminar is 2.5-3 hours. 

Single private sessions are also offered and are a great option if you have been doing the program on your own:  Cost: 60 min - $100; 90 min - $150


The 3 sessions are usually structured as follows:

  • Session 1 – 1st meeting (diastasis check and/or abdominal strength assessment, splinting, postural analysis, anatomy and learn the 4 steps of the Tupler Technique® )*

  • Session 2 – 2nd meeting (diastasis check and/or abdominal strength assessment, progression of seated exercises, analysis of everyday activities and alignment, double splinting and head lifts)*

  • Session 3 – 3rd meeting (diastasis check and/or abdominal strength assessment, analysis of everyday activities and alignment, incorporating the Tupler Technique® into a total body workout)
