Pikaia – origins…

The pikaia fish is the most primitive known vertebrate and therefore the ancestor of all descendant vertebrates, including humans .

How cool is that! When we stumbled across this fascinating creature – it immediately felt like the perfect name for the studio: we are all about spine health and movement while keeping the joints safe. We want to be mobile like a fish in water,  water is strong and powerful, water is flexible.  Our body is our vehicle through this wonderful life. At Pikaia we are here to guide you and teach you to be the perfect version of yourself .
