Pilates anyone?

Happy New Year! Hope you're as excited about 2016 as we are. We mainly look forward to encouraging you to get to your mat, move your body and take care of yourself. With this in mind, did you know we have Pilates classes on Have you ever tried Pilates? Here's some reasons why you should try Pilates from one of our skillful teachers, Chrissy Ramstead;

Joseph Pilates invented a series of exercises that lengthen and lean the body. He was a sickly child with asthma, rickets, and rheumatic fever who believed that improving core strength, breathe and posture, while decreasing stress, was the key to health. His theory worked, because by the age of 14 he was fit enough to pose for anatomical charts and lived a strong influential life until he was 83.

Pilates leads to greater core strength, improved posture, and a leaner body. Practicing regularly strengthens the immune system and lowers cortisol levels and stress, which also translates into weight management benefits.

With less stress and better health everything from picking up your children, sitting at your desk all day, to climbing a mountain becomes easier when you do Pilates regularly.With an improved sense of well being and increased quality of life one can’t help but feel more confident and hopefully even joyful.

I practice Pilates every morning first thing because it sets me up for success every day. The results I’ve experienced have been transformational. Now I challenge you to try it this year.
