Pilates - Grow Beyond What You Know

Pilates - Grow Beyond What You Know

Let me begin the way I begin my drop-in classes: what do you know about Pilates? Generally, the response is “a bit”. This is great - My favorite thing is to introduce people to Pilates and watch them learn their bodies anew.

Ultimately, I’m simply an observer. You live in your body.

I teach Pilates, but far more, Pilates teaches me. Insert epic eye-roll here, I understand! There are so many buzzwords and pithy little motivational quotes that it’s all noise.

Stripped down to its bare bones & essence, we can sum it up to this:

Pilates is movement and movement teaches us.
Ground Control - What is it & Who is it for?

Ground Control - What is it & Who is it for?

Best thing about Ground Control? Anyone can do it, anytime, no matter their physical condition. What's more, everyone can benefit from it. 

As a rehab practise, it helps reduce chronic pain significantly; in many of my patients it brought them back to their pre-injury state of well-being. As a pre-hab practise for high level athletes, it helps elevate performance by identifying poor movement patterns and strengthening imbalances.
