Welcome to M3Kinections!
Kristen Rubow founded M3Kinections in response to the needs of her family and those she taught. Through her work, she realized that intentional movement, music, and practiced behaviors provide a unique means for people grow their capacity to learn and develop skills in areas of interest. We believe that all aspects of our lives, bodies and minds are intimately connected.
M3Kinections approach is to design programs focused on connecting our brain and body purposefully, so that we can measurably grow our ability to learn and adapt more quickly, retain more of what we learn and realize our full potential in all aspects of life.
We are inspired by the recent advances in knowledge of brain function and the intimacies of the brain/body connection. Neural science is finding that the capacity of the brain to continue growing throughout life is no longer in question, but a reality. Through this, new insight into the ways that the body and mind learn and grow is enabling us to create exciting new methods of life-long learning.
M3Kinections' programs are focused on working the body and integrating targeted mind exercise into day-to-day activities in order to reach optimal levels of performance.
Our clients are happy with us and they are satisfied with the services we provide. We hope our positive feedback will encourage you to join us in being healthy.
I know Kristin Rubow as a neighbor and friend, and have been participating in her classes once a week for several months. The class has been a help to me because I had a minor stroke two years ago, leaving me with light weakness in parts of my left leg and minor coordination problems in my left fingers.
She sets up different activities and exercises challenging my balance and coordination through different patterns of movement. I find her sensitive to my limitations as well as the very real abilities I have as an older person, showing me how I can best learn or relearn the skills I need to help me stay active, getting all the new neurons in my brain working.
She is supportive, patient, and always adaptive to one’s individual needs. In addition, the class is great fun.
I have known Kristen for over five years. Kristen has a wonderful ability to quickly connect with her students, assess their strengths and deficits, and customize a teaching plan that challenges them to integrate brain activity, physical movement, and musical concepts into a fun exercise program for mind and body.
I have referred my physical therapy patients to her. Additionally, I have been a client for private sessions and am an ongoing participant in her group classes. It is my professional opinion that Kristen's work is beneficial to all of us, young and old. Drawing upon the latest research in neroplasticity and brain development, Kristen is constantly learning and adjusting her teaching methods to bring new knowledge into her curriculum.
I give Kristen my highest personal and professional recommendation. Her unique knowledge, skills, and teaching methods will greatly benefit you and your organization. She is a pioneer in her field, and her work continues to improve the lives of all her many clients... including me!
"Kristen and M3Kinections have been life-changing for our son. The sessions are fun, interactive, and EFFECTIVE! My son [Lucca] looks forward to the summer camps every year. It’s one of his favorite activities!"
I began working with Kristen after having an impact injury and a concussion. Working with her has been incredibly valuable and really enjoyable. Through her programs I have seen improvement in my peripheral vision, reaction time, processing speed and attention shift. I am back playing hockey and I am playing better than I was before my concussion, which is all due to Kristen and her programs.
Her ability to generate measurable assessment of my ongoing improvement was something that was really valuable during my recovery process. I wish that I had established a concussion baseline before I had my accident! Anybody that plays a contact sport should do this! I continue to work with her as we are shifting our focus from recovery to performance.
I have participated in M3Kinections core, strength, balance and neuro classes for more than two years. I continue getting fantastic benefits from these classes. Kristen has a comprehensive and holistic approach to good health, encompassing body, mind and spirit. She keeps it fresh with new routines and is great at explaining the 'hows' and 'whys' of each workout. Her approach is always positive, kind and encouraging and adapts to the level of the students. I am at an age, (late 50s) where I've been pleasantly surprised that I have not just maintained, but dramatically improved my strength and balance over the time I've been participating. I feel empowered and confident about pursuing favorite physical activities and trying new ones. I highly recommend M3Kinections for everyone!
