Erik Andelman: Yoga, Onnit Unconventional Training, Massage Therapy

Rebuild the structure and function of your body - it's never too late!

Pain is information, and it is your body's only way to communicate the need for change. Just as a baby can only cry to communicate need, our bodies can only hurt to communicate the need for us to change.

Unnatural ergonomics, old injuries, weakness and tightness all lead to loss of mobility and loss of function, which your body will not give up without raising the alarm! Heed the message and take action now...

My goal is to help you change your body, to help you on your way toward feeling better for the long-run, and to help you reclaim the activities you love.

My tools are:

Therapeutic Thai Bodywork: A combination of passive Yoga stretching and very deep massage. Releases and increases circulation to targeted muscles and connective tissue. For all body types, including large people, athletes, or others needing lots of pressure. Performed on a mat, clothing on, no oils used. LMT TN.

Unconventional Strength Training: Just as certain parts of the body are tight and restricted, others parts are weak or even atrophied. Often times our most painful parts are weak muscles struggling to hold their place in an imbalanced structure. By strengthening targeted muscle groups we can bring the body back into balance. By increasing our level of fitness we can improve our healing capacities and increase energy levels. Unconventional Training combines all the best of ancient and modern techniques. Onnit Academy Certified Foundations Trainer.

Yoga: The ancient practice which combines physical health and spiritual seeking is constantly being redefined in modern times. Here we use it to assist our process of gaining strength and flexibility, and also as a simple but extremely effective tool for stress-management. I bring you techniques straight from India, where I have traveled extensively.

About me: My journey as a fitness professional began in my struggles with chronic injuries – including a permanently fractured lumbar vertebrae – which were never ending as a high school and collegiate runner and later as a Yogi, rock climber and martial artist. My efforts to heal myself led me to study massage, and I was certified in Traditional Thai Massage in Thailand, in the year 2000. Two years later, I left a job as Silicon Valley software engineer to spend a year in India studying Yoga with numerous teachers around the country. In 2011, I began practicing as a professional massage therapist in Knoxville, TN, and shortly after began teaching Yoga.
Through my experience helping clients manage chronic pain, I learned the equal importance of loosening and strengthening corresponding parts of the body. Thus the addition of strength training to my work gave me the tools to correct dysfunction in movement and posture and optimize health.

Combining Onnit-style unconventional training, Thai Bodywork and Yoga to help clients rebuild their bodies and health. Specializing in hopeless cases...
