True Ambition

Flashback to being a stay-at-home Mom with four kids and loving it, knowing my calling was and still is to help more people. In fact, I told my osteopath who wanted to hire me to travel and sell online acupuncture tests twenty years ago that no, my vision had three...

The Flag is Still Here

Just because something isn’t “there” doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist!  The flag came down in the recent ice storm, but as soon as the Spring thaw comes it will be up! We are and ready for change. Scrolling through thousands of photos while on my way to Utah I was...

March Matness Musings

New to Pilates? Think you "know" Pilates? Tried it but "it hurt this or that?" Think again! The movement of Pilates exercises will never give up on YOU, in fact who ever heard of a business that teaches students to do it on their own? That's exactly what we've been...

Holiday Health

Before we reflect on this year, let's take a moment to appreciate today!  How do you start YOUR day? Every single day I start with a prayer, a gratitude list, and something upside down.  Yes, upside down.  It stimulates the nervous system, wakes me up, and also CHEERS...

Sharing the Health

November marks 12 years since officially receiving the PMA Pilates teacher certification. It was an incredible road to even get to the point to start teacher training, having coughed so hard I cracked my ribs some twenty years prior. It is an absolute gift to teach...

Summer Lovin’!

Are you LOVING this Summer?  I know I am - it has not been SO hot we can't move, (except this past weekend!) plenty of rain when we need a break, and plenty to do. Between getting outside more, traveling a bit, learning new things, I am so grateful that Pilates goes...

Move from Within

Happy first day of Summer!  So excited to share a brief thought about our theme this year: MOVEMENT.  We would all agree Pilates is whole body movement, I'm sure. What happens when you feel pain or tightness?  We tend to STOP or slow down and sense that lack of...

That’s All The Things

Have you noticed? Do you listen? Do you see? More times than not we are so busy with our "lives" that we forget to take time for ourselves, to actually feel what is going on inside.  Or we  "think" we are moving, but we are stagnant inside.  STOP.  Feel what is going...

Taking Root

The cold, slow start to Spring has been a blessing in disguise! When you think of movement, what do you see, feel, do?  I'm a mover by nature, and very active on the outside. One of the main reasons I fell in love with Pilates is that it teaches me to be aware of my...

Movement Musings

Oh, I remember well!   My first experience with "Pilates," or as I thought it was called "Pie" "lets"  hahaha, was overwhelming at best. In a class with 40 people at a health club trying to keep up with the pace of a vigorous workout.  All I knew was after having four...

TriPilates: Results Matter

READY ? Pilates is for the Unexpected...or so Joe reminds us! Whether it is a movement pattern that suddenly connects you to feel more, or you slip and easily recover because your core kicks in, Pilates is definitely for the unexpected! Is that what he meant? You...

When I walked away from my first Pilates private lesson with a sense of lightness, ease, relief, I knew something was “just right.” Our bodies “want” and “know” how to be healthy. My life at the time was full of joy and yet full of so much stress. Looking back,...
