Stronger Back, Improved Balance and Increased Quality of Life…just from Pilates
I have been teaching Pilates since 1997. When I first starting teaching I have to be honest…it was hard to slow down and be more mindful and present with my movements, but I would NEVER stop doing it now as it has transformed my body. I’m leaner, more flexible, have great balance and feel INCREDIBLE. I want you to feel these benefits too.
Pilates continues to gain popularity and has proven benefits according to the Idea’s June 2014 article “Proven Benefits of Pilates.” I shall share with you a few points and then come and see for yourself by taking Pilates classes offered at Move Your Body Studio.
Increases Flexibility – Practicing Mat Pilates increases lower back, upper body and hamstring flexibility
Better Dynamic Balance – With just 5 weeks of Pilates, adults had better balance and fewer falls
Muscle Endurance – Increased muscle endurance in both the abdominals and low-back endurance just after 8 weeks of classes 3 times per week
More Life Satisfaction – Improvements in physical self-concept, psychological well-being, mood, and sleep improved in just 12 weeks.
Do these work-outs at home….remember though consistency is the Key to Your Healthy Life…so if you are looking for motivation, then make classes a part of your week. Classes are:
Monday’s 7:15-8pm Core Commotion – Pilates based
Engage in real life functional movement patterns such as twisting, bending, pushing, & pulling executed in a FUN and creative way using Pilates techniques. Core training, balance and flexibility are all included to create a total well rounded program. Your CORE is craving some Commotion!!

Pleasure Abound with the Second Chakra
Don’t worry if you haven’t been to class lately, we are just having fun implementing some life energy work into our moves and you can join in at any time.
Where the First Chakra is satisfied by survival, the Second Chakra is constantly seeking pleasure, but balanced is best.

Second Chakra – Pleasure
Sitting comfortably with spine lengthened, eyes softly closed, draw your attention to your breath to bring you into this present moment.
Consider an experience of pleasure gratification that you often take part in, but tend to feel guilty about. Reach for the object of pleasure and experience it with full awareness.
Allow yourself to sit for a few moments with the feelings created by this meditation. Bring your awareness back to your breath and then slowly open your eyes.
To fully experience the Grounding meditations use the fabulous essential oils from Living Libations. My class LOVES the aroma of the Sacral Chakra – Creativity – which encourages interaction of pleasure and flow.
Major clue for noticing an imbalance is the second chakra is a desire to lose yourself in sex, drugs, alcohol, food or any stimulating sensations.
When next hugged, or while tasting something delightful or listening to a beautiful song, close your eyes for a moment and focus on the deep sense of satisfaction you are feeling. Enter into thankfulness for the experience and focus on the delight in every cell of your body. Feel the aliveness.
Tips to Awaken
May you be balanced throughout your day!
