About Pilates & Movement
There is a reason I have been teaching Yoga and Pilates for 17 years.
It is a good workout, you will see results. You will feel stronger, more alert and relaxed.
You focus on your body and quiet the mind.
And you work at your own pace.
Pilates class focuses on the core.
You will work your entire body.
I have revised the workout to include a therapeutic approach,
which is helpful in recovering and preventing injury.
As we age, or even as we are younger, recovering and preventing injury is the basis of Pilates.
It was developed by Joseph Pilates who was working in an interment camp in Germany.
He came to America in the 1930’s and was widely acclaimed for his work
with dancers and acting professionals in NYC.
Pilates will enhance your recovery as you work at your own pace.
The class includes upper body strength with weights,
stretching with bands,and core strength with core stability balls. (provided)
You will see and feel the difference.
Coupled with a healthy diet which includes a lower carbohydrate intake,
protein, lots of veggies and eating at regular times
will make a difference in your health and well-being.
About Kripalu YOGA
My goals for YOGA are for a quieter mind, a relaxed body, stretched, strong and flexible.
It is a meditative class with deep breathing, centering,
and allowing yourself to relax,
release and let go.
This class is a deeper practice with reflection of the postures and self-observation
to deeply connect with your inner self.
We are so often these days distracted and this class
will offer focus on the body, mind and spirit.
It is a practice of mindfulness and compassion.
Finding the peace within.
Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. Therefore, namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you."
"For me, the best way to still my mind is to move my body.
And a mind emptied of busyness that preoccupies most of our lives,
and redirected into the natural rhythms of our body
and heart has immeasurable power, an unlimited capacity for wisdom." Gabrielle Roth
