Dr. Suki and Russell Munsell's mission is to transform how you move through life. Learn medically recommended activities like Tai Chi, swimming, walking and more, through their Dynamic Vitality℠ Method—a blend of sports science, body mindfulness, and Qigong practices. Heal and move pain-free with natural ease.
Co-Founder and Chief Vitality Officer
I'm passionate about helping people grow Lifelong Legs℠, and learning to walk efficiently — away from pain, and toward greater vitality.
Dr. Suki has taught dance, fitness and biomechanics to students of all ages for more than 45 years, beginning in 1975 under the guidance of post-modern dance pioneer Anna Halprin. A Registered Somatic Movement Therapist and Educator, she earned her doctorate in Movement Arts with a dissertation on Body Transformation, a life-long research pursuit. Interviewed on The Richard Simmons Show in 1988, the fitness guru introduced her as "Dr. Suki," a nickname that stuck. Thousands of students worldwide move with greater efficiency and ease using her Dynamic Walking℠ program, featured in Prevention Magazine and Prevention's Complete Book of Walking.
Co-Founder and Chief Mindfulness Officer
My deepest gratification is in giving clients the tools to master vitality for self-healing, improving learning and optimizing performance.
Russell's four-decade professional career is focused on teaching clients to maximize their potential. At Humboldt State University he created and delivered Stress Management, Accelerated Learning and Performance Optimization programs, also taught in corporations, for government and in Japan. He trains clients to make smarter choices in health promotion and lifestyle management. Russell has been coaching swimmers for 51 years, and won gold in the national Amateur Athletic Union 4-mile at age 43. He began practicing Asian movement arts in 1968 and is a certified Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher.
Office Manager and Dynamic Walk Leader
When life starts to spiral, and my body pushes back, I simply reset using my Dynamic Walking training, and get back on track. This has served me well for the past 30 years.
Sami first began working with Suki in 1994, a job she inherited from her mother, an original Dynamic Walk Leader. A busy working mother of 3, Sami uses Dynamic Walking throughout her day to keep her body moving efficiently and get everything done.
Dynamic Walking Coach and co-Teacher
Dana's grandmother, a massage therapist, infused a special sense of the trust and openness that has influenced her unique teaching and bodywork style. Dana has been in private practice since 1987 and teaching since 1995. Dana first trained with Suki 35 years ago at the Transformations Institute and in 2018 took the Dynamic Walking teacher training. Dana is now co-teaching with Suki in both the Dynamic Walking for Lifelong Legs program and the teacher training.
