August Fitness Schedule and Spotlight on Beginner Pilates
Summer is in full swing, but it’s almost back to school time…..WHAT?!
Our new schedule is up
August 2016 Yoga & Pilates
We want to talk a little bit about our Beginner Pilates classes. Starting August 1st, Amy Eakle is going to be our primary instructor. Amy fell in love with Pilates and decided to pursue a comprehensive education through PHI Pilates. Amy is now a Level II and Advanced Mat and Props instructor. She continues to study both traditional and new methods as she pursues additional certifications. During her classes she focuses on alignment and proper biomechanics while providing a full body workout.
Here are some of our favorites reasons to become a practitioner of Pilates:
Sculpts your body, clears your mind, increases your energy and serenity
Improves memory and increases cognitive function
Trains your brain by challenging your body and mind at the same time
Deeper muscle activation means better function of the nervous system
Calms your mind and emotions
Releases stress tension in our bodies
Pilates makes you happy – “The first requisite of happiness if physical fitness” ~Joseph Pilates
Makes you more creative
Pilates breath lets you control your emotions
Pilates teaches us to be ourselves, respect our bodies, and be content
Pilates helps you be more confident – “Through the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning, this unique trinity of a balanced body, mind, and spirit can ever be attained. Self-confidence follows.” ~Joseph Pilates
Develops a strong core – flat abdominals and a strong, healthy back
Gain long, lean muscles and flexibility
Creates an evenly conditioned body, improves sport performance, and prevents injuries
Learn how to move more efficiently
It’s gentle, yet effective
We hope to see you on the mat soon at a Beginners Pilates class, and we look forward to starting and growing a Pilates community.
