Does this sound like you?
- Sitting at your desk hunched over your computer
- Running around, lifting and lugging your children
- Driving long stressful commutes
- Collapsing at the end of the day while watching TV or scrolling through social media.
Stress like this creates havoc in your body and mind.
- Overtraining one set of muscles leading to overuse injuries
- Pushing yourself to the point of pain
- Weight-lifting with incorrect form
- Skipping the warm-up or cool down
Workout mistakes like this cause aches, pains, imbalances, stiffness, tension and ultimately injuries.
Pain, strain, and injury
As we age and practice our daily dysfunctional movements, our body becomes rigid and inflexible. We suffer from stiffness, less flexibility, more aches and pains and not being able to do things we did when we were younger.
Because of all the dysfunctional movements over the years, we begin to feel pain. We think, “oh this must just be what getting old feels like.”
We often have neck strain, tight shoulders, bad posture, and text neck, from spending years sitting at our office jobs, commuting in fist-clenching traffic daily and being glued to our phones.
Pain begins to turn into injuries as basic as our backs “going-out,” to knee replacements.
End the vicious cycle of dysfunction, pain, and injury
The goal of Pilates is to make you feel better after class and strengthen your body long-term. Each time you walk into your session, I will assess your physical needs and customize your session based on how your body feels that day and what your body has faced since our last session.
Pilates is so much more than just a strong core and long, lean look even though that’s an awesome benefit! Here are some of the other benefits of regular Pilates practice:
- A stronger, more flexible, and pain-free body
- An improved posture that shows up in confidence and attitude
- An exceptional balance, strength, and control in my daily living activities
- A reduction in pain and potential injuries
- An increase in your cardiovascular endurance
“You will feel better in ten sessions, look better in twenty sessions, and have a completely new body in thirty sessions.” -Joseph Pilates

Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates who began developing what he called “Corrective Exercise” in 1918. Joseph Pilates created apparatuses that could support the body in order to correct dysfunction and improve movement.
