Meet us


Everything is figureoutable. - Marie Forleo

Hi there. We are Dr. Aubry & Dirk, the husband and wife team behind The MOVMNT Method. We met as children in Aubry's home city of Miami while Dirk was visiting from his home city of Antwerp. We instantly connected and became penpals, writing each other for the next 23 years. One day we took a leap of faith and never looked back. Now a global family raising 3 children across 2 continents, it is our mission to help others live a fulfilling, expansive life on their terms.
