Personal Training

“Morgyn has been a wonderful blessing for me! I always look forward to my training sessions with her, and always feel better, both physically and emotionally, after each session. She challenged me while also being mindful of my (and the baby’s) health. Training with Morgyn has helped me cope better with the changes my body has gone through during pregnancy. It lifts my energy levels and mood, and helped my morning sickness during the first trimester. I wholeheartedly recommend Morgyn to anyone who is pregnant!”

Personal Training/Massage Combo. . .

“I see Morgyn for personal training and massage. She is a very unique trainer and has an encyclopedic yet intuitive understanding of anatomy, and especially (from my perspective) what kind of training mothers need both during pregnancy and post-partum, and throughout motherhood. Our workouts feel like a magical combination of strength-training, bellydance, yoga, plyometrics, and physical therapy – with the added bonus that they are almost always at the beach and IN the ocean! (When it’s raining, we work at my home. She also offers house calls and sessions in her studio.)

When Morgyn moved back to Miami, I was already pretty serious about exercise (I’ve done triathlons and even a marathon last year), but I’d been feeling very out of balance with reoccurring minor injuries. Morgyn complements what I already do with training that focuses on my hips, core, and psoas that I had really left unaddressed post-partum. (I have three children, ages 6 to 12, so these issues of soreness, stiffness, and the need for strengthening and toning have been around for a while…) I swear she has also taught me how to breathe again and how to really use my breath with movement, which helps me in so many ways, including stress relief.

I love that she really integrates the ocean and our beautiful beach in my workouts with bodywork I can do in the water. Her ocean running training is making me a better and happier runner – it is so rejuvenating. AND her massages are incredible.

I went to Morgyn for massage during my last pregnancy and once post-partum that was absolutely transformative. I only wish I had known about her sooner! Also, my 70-year old mother-in-law credits Morgyn completely with “curing” her debilitating sciatica pain, which she had been treating with pain medications and chiropractic adjustments.

I feel so much more balanced and mindful of my body than I did before and look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you, Morgyn!!

“After I gave birth and my pelvic bones went back into place, they trapped my left hip joint making it very hard for it to move and making it awkward for me to exercise or even walk somedays! I used Morgyn’s amazing services both massage and exercise to help ‘unlock’ my issue. It only took about 4 weeks to get back on track and I had been suffering through the issue for over a year!”-Kate Fitzner, mother of toddler, Mom to Mom Member, entrepeneur

“Morgyn provided comprehensive postnatal care after the birth of my second child, including exercises for overall toning and strengthening, as well as specific exercises targeted at diastasis recti. The treatment plan included exercises that could easily be completed at home with two young children, in combination with relaxing massage sessions that were tailored to complement the exercise regimen.

I could not recommend her services more highly. Whether you are months or years postpartum, Morgyn has the skills and knowledge to provide a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.”Katherine W. Corrigall, M.S., CCC-SLP, mother of two small children

I started seeing Morgyn for postnatal recovery when my youngest turned 1.5, and I wish I did it sooner. I’ve learned so much about basic self-care, which gets overlooked when you are busy with the little ones. The help I received went beyond the customized training plan she created for me, or the C-section scar tissue massage, or the fun belly-dance moves. She helped me on my healing journey and encouraged me to stay motivated and make being active a part of my life. Morgyn has a unique combination of talents and approaches healing from many angles. And her massages are amazing!”
-Bina, mother of 3 small children

“I went to Morgyn a few months ago for a massage (best ever, and I’ve had a lot!) and while talking with her after found out she also offers personal training. I have been looking for someone to get me back on track after a decadent summer, and Morgyn is that person. She is very present and “in tune” with me and my needs each session, and her work continues after each visit with a follow up “homework” assignment. This is what I really love, because it motivates me, gives me structure and holds me accountable.

I have only been seeing her for two weeks and I already feel stronger and more grounded in my body. Morgyn also takes the time before, during and after each session to check in with how I’m feeling and answer any questions, as well as offer advice regarding diet, vitamin and other regimens she feels I might benefit from.

In a nutshell, go to Morgyn for any of your bodywork needs- you will not be disappointed and will positively be inspired.”-Tessa H, business owner

Dance Movement. . .

“This is the best thing since sliced bread! It’s great for feeling free, keeping pain at bay, staying flexible in your movement. Dancing keeps you happy!”Jeri Mclean, fit, active 68-year-old

“As an instructor of the “Flexibility and Function” class, Morgyn leads us in the diversified set of exercies that increase our agility, strength and balance so important for the ladies of the “certain age” and with the additional fun of dance movements and even elements of the belly dancing.  She is very attentive in prevention of sprains and pains and helps with the professional advice.”-Natasha, fit, active 76-year-old

“I feel like my body has changed for the better, especially my stomach and butt areas. I still get a good workout; you don’t need weights for that. A lot of people don’t understand that you can dance and get a great workout.”

I’ve never danced before like this in all my 40 years of working out.”
Mariana Oleson, fit, active 68-year-old

Massage . . .

“My first Thai massage with Morgyn was the best yoga class/stretching/massage experience all wrapped into one amazing session. Her deep knowledge of different techniques along with her intuitive nature for her clients needs is truly a special combination. I send all my loved ones to Morgyn for massage.”MaryBeth, mother of 2 small children

“I went to see Morgyn because I struggled with re-occurring lower back & hip pain. I would consistently go to my chiropractor when I went into crisis mode, but it would only help temporarily. Morgyn diagnosed my issue as relating to my psoas muscle. I went through a six week therapeutic muscle-massage program and learned about different stretches that helped to strengthen my lower back and hip muscles. I just completed the program and am feeling so rejuvenated! The tightness I struggled with, along with the feeling of having a much shorter leg than the other, has been resolved…I feel FABULOUS! I’m going to keep a monthly regiment of massage therapy, so that I can maintain the comfort I’m enjoying. I never thought how important muscle massage was…until now! Thank you Morgyn, for allowing me to feel comfort again. Never too late 🙂-Maria Locke – Mother of 3 & Very Post Natal (27 years post)!

“The Thai massage Morgyn gave me was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. It was amazing! Morgyn got into those deep spots that were painful for me and I was much more limber by the next day. I will definitely be returning to her.”Jen Dean, mother, owner of Jen Dean Photography

“Thai yoga massage with Morgyn Danae is one of the most healing & transformative therapies I have found. Combines both yoga & massage & Morgyn’s spiritual expertise. Nothing quite like it. Fabulous.”Kate Schrock, professional musician/singer/songwriter, mother, business owner

“Having a massage with Morgyn is amazing! I own a fitness facility and have long, active days that put a great deal of demand on my body on a regular basis.  Once a week I end my day with Morgyn and come away completely rejuvenated and refreshed!  She tailors the massage to your needs and zeroes in on any area where you need it most.  It’s a pleasure for me to recommend Morgyn.”Joe Schacht, personal trainer, owner Dynamics Fitness & Performance

“I am a very busy entrepeneur who doesn’t like to slow down. The hectic lifestyle caught up with my body and the pain started building up in my lower back and shoulders. Morgyn has helped me immensely with her expertise in massage, bodywork, and stretching. Her knowledge and kindness make a perfect pairing in a healer who lets you live your life but can gently guide you into better, healthier practices to take care of yourself. Running two businesses is stressful. There’s just no escaping it. I recommend working with Morgyn to anyone who is looking for managing their hectic lives with massage and bodywork. She’s just been a blessing.”-Meredith Alexander, fashion designer/installation artist, owner madworld designs

“Morgyn is such a talented masseuse. Her sensitivity to her client’s needs and her skilled hands produce a massage that will stay with you for days.”-Gretchen Hill, retired nurse practitioner and avid equestrian

“I had such an amazing massage from Morgyn! So relaxing!!”Katie Eastman, marathon runner, former reporter for The Boston Globe

“I initially called Morgyn about an issue my husband was having with a severe clogged ear and neck pain. I heard from a mutual friend that she performed a very specific type of massage called Lomi lomi which might be a more intense and healing type of massage for my husband’s issue but also extremely therapeutic in other ways.  After seeing his remarkable improvement, I decided to see Morgyn for a post-natal massage which managed to reset my entire body.

I allowed myself to make the appointment after getting over the guilt and simply let Morgyn take over. It was wonderful to be cared for in a way that no one else really can. I felt human again; my circulation was moving and I had an increase of energy afterward. One hour goes a very long way. After Morgyn’s work, I’d wished I’d done it after my first birth and felt I’d really missed that part of the healing process.

The second and most recent time I saw Morgyn, I was suffering from a self-induced neck injury (conference call with phone tucked in my neck while typing). It was so debilitating, I could not move my head in any direction, barely stand up straight, or walk. I called Morgyn who fit me in an extremely tight schedule and within 24 hours of her massage (and her specific instructions on how to care for it afterward –important too!) I normalized.

In my house she is a miracle worker, and in others who we have introduced Morgyn to, I have heard nothing but accolades from everyone who has seen her. Massage is a very personal thing and Morgyn manages to keep it personal and caring but is not intrusive or invasive. And she does it with such strength and power that it’s extremely effective.” Kristin Kopp, mother of 2 small children, owner The Kopp Company

 “As a fitness instructor, I find my sessions with Morgyn help with muscle recovery after tough workouts and overall injury prevention.  Another benefit is that during a session, Morgyn helps me clue in to where I have muscle stiffness or soreness that I wasn’t even aware of and I can work on it on my own until our next visit to maintain and improve flexibility and stay injury free.  Morgyn does a great job at tailoring the session to what my body needs and how it’s responding and I appreciate the different techniques she uses to get maximum results.”-Kristi Van Ooyen, spinning instructor, marathon runner

“Morgyn’s work is fantastic. She is a gifted healer and grace-filled teacher. Thai yoga massage with Morgyn Danae is one of the most healing & transformative therapies I have found. Combines both yoga & massage & Morgyn’s spiritual expertise. Nothing quite like it. Fabulous.” Kate Schrock, professional musician/singer/songwriter, business owner, mother

“I receive regular reflexology every 2 weeks from Morgyn. I also just recently had my first Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage from her as well. Both were fantastic, positive experiences I am happy to repeat as often as possible. I am 83 and had no idea of how healing both were for a body.
All this happens in my own home, as Morgyn is kind enough to come to me here each time. I think the highlight was the scalp massage, which was pure heaven!”Tam Denham

“The Ritz on Revere! I go to heal at the (Healing) Oasis”-J. Locke, business owner
