Our daily movement patterns affect our Pilates practice and our practice can improve our daily habits. As a modern human, you probably spend a lot of time sitting, using a computer and smartphone and hitting the gym or Pilates class but not a lot of time moving all your many amazing parts in ways that even out the effects of our current lifestyles.
We move (and don’t move!) in ways that weren’t the case when Joseph Pilates originally created his method. His work is amazing and offers many opportunities for building core strength, but not if the connective tissues that spread through your whole entire system restricts your movement.
Learning where your own personal “sticky” spots are, understanding how your body moves and what will help it move even better and knowing what YOUR brain and body need to thrive all make for an amazing movement practice that will serve you forever!
Pilates for Modern Bodies combines the traditional exercises with contemporary movement science. We know more now about fascia and how our connective tissue works. We understand how natural and sustainable movement supports the choreography of our Pilates practice.
I'm a strong believer in curiosity and exploration. We will look for the parts of your body that offer the greatest potential for change, and then make that change with compassion and self-care!
