Luck under the Buck Moon

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  That old expression really is not for the faint of heart.  Today was no exception and I have arrived at this moment RIGHT NOW feeling SO very grateful!  How did I get so lucky to be able to help people by sharing my...

Bloom Where You Are Planted, Grow With Love

Settled into a Summer schedule? Summer has YET to begin. Next week, in fact, is the LONGEST day of the year.  There is so much energy all around us! Did you see that full "strong sun" moon last weekend feel it's ensuing sudden heat (who doesn't)? What are you doing...

STILL BREATHING

"Breath is the first act of life and the last." - Joe Pilates. I was one of the lucky ones to attend Cara Reeser and Jeremy Lavendure’s Movement Science Made Simple workshop on Breath: Your Song is your Strength. Everything about the trip was graced with good omens,...

MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK

Recently a new prospect declared that Pilates was "over his budget."  Is your good health, bone building, life giving education in Pilates over budget?  We think not.  Make a commitment this month of May to take PRIVATE lessons, where you get MORE bang for the buck....

DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!

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,...

The Value of Private Pilates Studio

No matter how many times a week, how many weeks, months, or years we practice Pilates, the one thing we can rely on is CHANGE.  This is true in life!  Joe Pilates' book is aptly entitled, Return to Life.  His promise: "In 10 sessions, you'll feel a difference In 20...

Tree? Who, me? Yes, YOU!

My first mat class led me to private lessons (I could NOT do "Tree")! Private lessons for many years led me to becoming a teacher. YOU, our community, our students, our studio, brought us to TEN YEARS!   That first mat class was packed - 4o people or so - like...

Why Do Reformer?

Over the years, it has become increasingly apparent. More and more people are getting injured and stuck in movement patterns not advantageous to our good health. Joe Pilates intended his exercises to be life-giving, strength-building and controlled movements that...

On the Shoulders

"On the Shoulders" Written by Eileen Harris For over six years I sat on a sliding seat, arms stretched out in front of me, hauling a 9-foot oar through meters upon meters of water. I was part of a crew of women who spent the early hours of the morning (and most...

Gratitude in Action or Gratitude IS Action?

November is a time to reflect on our lives, our family, our friends, and our community.  Just as our TriPilates tribe of students is steadily growing, so is our amazing group of teachers. It blows my mind that for 18 years, I was hooked on cigarettes and 30 years ago...

It’s All About the Feet

"When the student is ready the teacher appears,  when the teacher is ready the student appears." Since the day TriPilates opened in 2007, our goal has been to provide our community with customized, cutting edge, Classical Pilates! But what is Classical? It all...

Mid-Summer Musings

What do you want? What do you need?  With less than 50 days left until Fall officially begins, most of us are busy getting in one more vacation, hitting the beach or the pool, reading books, driving somewhere, and getting outside in the blazing light of Summer....

Priceless Pilates

As we ease into Summer, here are my thoughts on the Kathy Grant Heritage Training with Cara Reeser at Pilates Aligned in Denver.  This training became available over two years ago, but life duties delayed my enrollment.  Like any continuing education, the thrill of...

Action is the Magic Word

A few weeks ago, I found myself with unscheduled time on my way to witness Grad school graduation, profoundly grateful for my son's passion, dedication, and achievements. It is a life-altering step into his future. Pilates is also a game-changer, yet many people...

Stretch, Strength, Control, but REMEMBER TO BREATHE!

One of the first generation teachers , Romana Kryzanowska,  said Pilates is:  "Stretch, strength, and control, the most important of which is CONTROL." How many of you believe you have complete coordination of your body, mind, and spirit? How many of you FEEL you have...

Power and Light

November has flown by in beauty and warmth, yet suddenly there's less light, color, and a little less time seemingly. Give yourself the gift of staying healthy, vibrant, and alive by making the time to come to the studio. As most of you who know I am usually not at a...

What’s the Difference?

Honestly, every morning is the same ache, the same hole in my heart. Part of me craves going forward with our lives, part of me in despair for our loss. The ONLY thing that helps is staying in the moment, feeling each new day make a difference. It's a gift, being able...

Feel the Difference in 2015

What's the Difference?   At TriPilates we recognize that you have a choice here in our community. From the very start, the intention of opening a studio was to posture teaching Pilates to "feel the difference." Pilates was not even so well known just 8 years ago, our...

Feel the Difference in 2015

'Tis the season to give more and care more about others. The absolute best way to do that is to take care of yourself first! This seems selfish, but it is truly the art of self-care, the empowerment of healing ourselves on every level, that makes us better human...

Ch Ch Ch Changes!

The only thing constant is change. Change is always present, but during the Fall season we feel it more than ever. It's the time of year to be inside a little more and reconnect with the energy within you and your loved ones around you. Are you ready? Pilates changes...

Summer Solstice

It's finally here! Longer sunny days, brighter and big skies, warmth and relaxation. What happens when life suddenly shifts. Do you know what to do? The only thing TO do is to be AUTHENTIC. "Decide to remain true to yourself." -p .21 Joe Pilates, Return to Life...

Happy Spring!

Are you happy? This Spring, let's focus on the "More From Your Core" part of the slogan! There is a double meaning here. Yes, at TriPilates we focus on core, but how about our heart muscle? Our hearts need exercise and oxygen as much the rest of our body, perhaps more...

Live More From Your Core in 2014

In light of our recent deep freeze, and the "mini" Full Moon (it's the first of the year, but farthest away from the Earth), you may feel challenged to keep up with commitments, or to sense your authentic longings and goals. TriPilates: Empower yourself to feel, know...

Enjoy End of Summer

After taking a well-deserved and truly blessed vacation, it's great to be back at the studio. Fifteen years ago, Pilates gave me a sense of connection, self-care, and a break from the demands of a busy life with four little kids. Now, with young adults heading into...
