Student of Ido Portal, IDO Portal Internship, FRC Mobility Specialist, Kinstretch Level 1 Instructor, Certified Personal Trainer, FMS Level 1
Physicality has always been one of the most important aspects of my life. This pursuit, I feel, is contrary to societal norms. The message I have been subject to is that physicality is a great pastime, but there are higher priorities where you should focus your energy. I have also received the message that high level physical pursuits are for the young, and when you get older other responsibilities should take priority in your life.
It has taken me the first half century of my life to understand that my desire to live and work pursuing physicality is ok, and this path is fulfilling unto itself. I have determined that I don’t need to feel guilty about making this a high priority in my life. I have found greatest fulfillment in life when I am using my own body to its fullest potential and helping others to do so. I have acted on this realization by pushing my standards in rock climbing.
I have just turned 50, and over the past 2 years I have climbed harder than any time in my life, achieving personal bests in both Bouldering and Sport Climbing. Over the past 7 years I have been a climbing coach, and in the past 3 years I have been head coach the Calgary Climbing Centre’s Adult Competitive Program. I have been responsible for sport specific training, exercise prescription, developing a yearly training plan, and for athlete development.

I’ve been a Physiotherapist for over a decade and over the last few years I have seen a positive shift in the profession. Physiotherapists are starting to move away from largely providing passive treatments to using an active, movement-based approach that empowers and educates clients. This is exciting to me! I have always thought of Physiotherapists as movement specialists but many of us restrict our assessment and treatments to a bed, a room, or a 15 minute time slot.
I strongly believe that to properly assess and treat a client is to take a step back and spend time observing their movements, see how they perform in their environment. By observing basic human movements such as a deep squat, you can quickly screen the lower extremity and assess joint range of motion and strength. Assessing for control and joint dissociation should be as simple as asking the client to do another task. Can they do it or not? If not, I want to be able to give the client the tools to be able to achieve the task and in the future, have them be able to add complexity into those basic human movements.
For this type of Physiotherapy, I require floor space as well as simple but effective equipment such as dowels, hanging stations, free weights, lifting bars and open wall space. Move To Move provides this environment as well as it will provide a seamless transition back to an environment and a community that promotes injury prevention and optimizing human movement for the rest of your life.
Janine Ankenmann Physical Therapist
MSCPT, BSCKIN, CERTIFIED MANUAL THERAPIST, IMS/FUNCTIONAL DRY NEEDLING CERTIFICATION LEVEL 1 & 2, FR Spine Certification, FRC MOBILITY SPECIALIST, TITLEIST PERFORMANCE INSTITUTE CERTIFIED, Shockwave Therapy Certified, Able to order Diagnostic Imaging
I am fascinated by the way the human body operates and I strive to maximize your body’s potential and performance.
I love to be active, playing competitive soccer and softball, along with golfing, running and hiking. My love for athletics jump-started my career into physiotherapy. As a high-level athlete, I recognize the drive to compete, the frustration of being on the sideline, and the challenge of returning post injury.
After 10+ years of clinical experience, I’ve developed an ability to observe and understand movement patterns, and to use this knowledge to design an effective treatment plan to match your goals. My expertise and skills include manual therapy, needling (IMS and acupuncture), vestibular rehabilitation, concussion management and functional movement analysis.
As an avid golfer I am Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified. The TPI Certification program is an evidence based, education pathway designed to teach professionals how to increase player performance through a deep understanding of how the body functions during the golf swing – “The Body-Swing Connection.”

I am fascinated by the inner workings of the human body, how it works in health and high performance, and in the best ways to optimize its potential. How injuries affect our bodies’ equilibrium and what we can do to prevent these injuries has been a pursuit of mine for a long time.
As a climbing coach and a former member of the Junior National Climbing Team, I saw and personally experienced many injuries. This fuelled my desire to learn more, and I went on to complete a MSc with the IOC-sanctioned Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre where I had the opportunity to conduct a cross-sectional study examining climbing injury in youth. I decided to complete a physiotherapy degree afterward, so that I could apply this knowledge. This truly provided me with a multidimensional, holistic view of what is needed to achieve successful outcomes for patients. I strongly believe that guiding post-injury rehabilitation is only a part of what physiotherapy provides. Rather than simply being reactive, we should move toward preventing injury as well; this idea of “pre-habilitation” really resonates with me. Optimizing how the body moves and actively working to strengthen weaknesses and decrease imbalances will keep us all happier and healthier for the long run.
Tyenne Bentor Massage Therapist
RMT, Myofascial Cupping, Fascial Therapy
My exploration over the last decade has been dedicated to a deep study of movement. Cultivating longevity and vitality is a life-long practice for me. A full immersion into yoga was the beginning, and over time, evolved into different practices with a major focus on Contact Improvisation and Capoeira.
Along the way, a few influential mentors have inspired me to complete my 3000hr Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy Diploma. This training has given me a foundation in anatomy and the mechanics of the body, and has led me to pursue further studies in fascia and movement. I believe through re-patterning movement and manipulating soft tissue we can recalibrate our bodies to optimize our overall health. In my practice, I utilize a combination all of the techniques I have learned over the years such as fascia manipulation, cupping, scar tissue management and deep tissue massage.
