We have grown up in a society where being evaluated is deeply entrenched into our culture. We get report cards in school, earn badges as we pass swimming lesson levels, earn pins, earn, earn, earn and are evaluate at each stage along the way as we learn or experience new things. But what do you KNOW about your body, do you KNOW if have good posture? Do you KNOW what to do if you don’t? Do you believe that just because the Sun has gone around the Earth one more time that you need to surrender to your aches and pains because you are one year older?? We have the solution to all of this wondering – introducing Lead’s Body Audit.
Why Invest in the Body Audit?
Research from Harvard Medical School reported that posture and the health of your body have a direct relationship. Therefore, if we improve our posture, we improve our health.
What is the Body Audit???
The Body Audit is a two part process, an initial appointment and a follow up 90 days later. The concept is simple, in your initial 50-minute appointment, you meet with your Body Auditor who is a certified Pilates Instructor who also happens to be an expert in movement and posture. She will gather info about you and your health history, she will take 4 pictures of you (front view, right and left side views and back view) and upload them into our super cool software. Within seconds you will have a customized report that compares your current state posture to the ‘plumb line’ otherwise known as optimal posture. Your report will identify the asymmetries that your body has adapted to because of old sports injuries, having babies, working at a desk for decades, manual labour, motor vehicle accidents, the list goes on and on.
Now that you have this specific info we will help to interpret the info from your report and show what 4-6 simple movements, stretches, release work strategies will start to help you pivot your situation. These customized exercises chosen JUST FOR YOU are known as your Movement Prescription. This is your homework per se. We upload this to your MINDBODY account at Lead and you have access to this so you can commit to make these simple shifts. Your Body Auditor will also recommend a class and treatment plan if appropriate, this becomes your personalized Wellness Framework. So basically, we do all the hard work for you, we figure out the plan and you execute it!
We also follow up with you at the one month and 2 month marks to ensure you are on track and then you come back in to meet with your Body Auditor at the end of month 3 and we see where you are at!

Hear about Dr. Willow’s Body Audit Experience
As part of our prep before we launched our Body Audit services, we invited our team at Lead who to go through this process, so many stepped up to really practice what we preach and learn about their bodies. Dr. Willow is our Naturopathic Doctor at Lead (a pretty fantastic one at that!!). Our feature photo for this blog is a snapshot of part of Dr. Willow’s Body Audit report. After her experience with Inna (who was her Body Auditor), here is what she wrote about her Body Audit.
“I love learning all I can about my current state of health so I jumped at the opportunity to test out the Body Audit Posture screen assessment and Lean screen body composition assessment. I also love numbers and “tech-y” things. I’ve been having some troubles with my ankles and lower left leg and this assessment tool helped identify and confirm some issues that had been found (and we had been working on) in my Pilates privates. Also, I didn’t realize how forward I still hold my head (this is SO much better than several years ago when I was finishing my years of schooling). The movement prescription I got afterwards is great – a lot of the stretches and blocking I can do while I sit on the floor and watch TV :)” – Dr Willow, ND
