  • Before and after Pilates! This is a side profile taken before and after a 20min of Pilates rehabilitation session (no postural or alignment queuing, just natural stance seated and standing). Can you tell the before from the after? The left side is post-Pilates. You can see better alignment throughout the spine. If this is 20min, imagine a long-term commitment? Over time her muscles will strengthen and hold her in this position all the time! This will decrease her chance of injury and pain.... does this excite you as much as it does me? 💪🏻💕🤗 #deepcorestrength #multifidusdysfunction #posturecorrection #alignmentmatters #pilatesbody #pilatesrehab #chiropilates

  • Night one of our meditation workshop is underway. We learned 3 different breath techniques to focus the breath and calm the mind... thanks @zengirl21 for a great evening.  A little taste of our evening... “Meditation is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state.  It is the means for fathoming all the levels of ours lives and finally experiencing the center of consciousness within. Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified.” -Swami Rama

  • Heal the healer! Sometimes I need to take my own advice... a week ago I woke up with severe acute neck pain. I literally couldn’t move. My first call was to my chiropractor (of course), and my acupuncturist and massage therapist. With a little TLC I am back up and functioning. Now it’s time for some rehabilitation and corrective exercises so that this doesn’t happen again! #takingmyownadvice #chiropracticfirst #healthehealer #rehabilitation #pilatesrehab
