All You Need Is Love

Love for each other.
Love for yourself.
LOVE for PILATES!

Our hearts are full with LOVE we feel for our clients, our studio, our team and our practice! Pilates gives you so much more than 55-minutes to yourself -- Pilates gives you an awareness and connection to your body that you get to take out into the world. You breath better. You feel better. And in turn, you live your life with a surplus of love and appreciation for everything and everyone (most of the time).

For any of the disbelievers or those unaware of the kind of positive effect Pilates can have on the system -- Pilates is a FULL BODY WORKOUT!

You've seen the rest, now come train with the BEST!

FALLING FOR PILATES

As Pilates Instructors, we love what we do. So it is more than necessary that we keep up with our own practice and in touch with what's evolving in the industry. Building a strong Pilates community is at the cornerstone of Pure Pilates' mission and purpose, hence our partnership with Alycea Ungaro and her Real Pilates Teacher Training Program (RPTT). Come be a part of strengthening this wonderful community and join our Pilates Pro Classes monthly on the 1st & 3rd Fridays at 2 pm ($30/discount packages available). Call Avél, Studio Coordinator, and book your reservation today or click here to register online!

In RPTT Apprentice News...
The Advanced Seminar was this past weekend -- HOLY COW! You've probably noticed the buzz around the studio as our Apprentice Extraordinaires ferociously self practice, observe and teach as much as humanly possible. Aside from learning a plethora of advanced system exercises, they were also tested on their Intermediate II competency. GUESS WHAT?! They all PASSED -- but are you even surprised?

DID YOU KNOW?
Pilates is Resistance Training which has been proven to increase Bone Density, Muscle Mass and Metabolism. Pilates all day!

BACK TO BASICS


September is here…
School is in session…
Schedules are filling up…
The traffic is horrendous…

Stop. Take a deep Breath and find your Center. Focus. Concentrate... And life will Flow Precisely as you wish.

The 6 Principles of Pilates are so important because mastery of these principles in your own practice are not held captive in your studio of choice. They live in you and are carried out into this crazy, hectic world which all too often can feel like a hurricane of stress and worry.

Stop. Take a deep Breath and find your Center.

Pilates is a beautiful system of exercises that build on each other like the foundational bricks of a sacred sanctuary. But they never get easier. Anyone who has done Pilates long enough can attest to that. In fact, challenge yourself this month to go back to the basics. Find ways to deepen the work in exercises like The Hundred on the Mat or The Twist & Reach on Reformer or…..THE AB SERIES!!!

Let go of what you already have programmed, in your brain and body, about these exercises and focus on the principles — Centering, Concentration, Control, Precision, Breath, Flow — how is the exercise helping you achieve these goals?

Let’s take a look at the Pilates exercise: The Hundred for example:

~ Your legs are long, straight, squeezing tight and hugging the midline (Centering)
~ The Powerhouse is staying deeply engaged while you listen to the cues of your instructor (Concentration)
~ Your legs stay reaching long at 45 degrees — perhaps they lower an inch (Control)
~ Your torso is planted sturdy into the mat; belly pulling in towards the spine; your head, neck and shoulders are stable — no bobbleheads (Precision)
~ Inhale 2,3,4,5 and Exhale 2,3,4,5 (Breath)
~ Your arms are reaching long and away from the shoulders — pumping at hip height or above with vigor from the wings (Flow)

Do you accept our challenge?! Wunderbar!

With A Little Help From My Friends

Pilates was designed to be mastered and enjoyed One-on-One. The individualized attention a client receives from their instructor amplifies the potential for success and growth. But let’s be honest….not everyone can afford private Pilates instruction. Also, some people enjoy the healthy competition that is sparked in group classes. Being accountable to others is often the extra push a person needs to get their tush in gear. What’s that? You’re tired of only doing Mat/Tower or Reformer exercises?! You miss working on other equipment like the Cadillac, Wunda Chair and Ladder Barrel but can’t afford privates anymore…NO PROBLEM! Duet Sessions are the perfect way to experience more apparatus without breaking the bank. So how does it work? How do you find a Pilates Pal? Matchmaking can be challenging but we are always happy to help find the perfect partnership. Just inform Avél, Studio Coordinator, that you are interested in signing up for Duets, indicating your preferred day and time, and she will do her best to find you a partner (keeping skill level in mind, of course). Alternatively, if you are new to Pilates, and have a friend that is also interested in starting up a practice…PERFECT! The friends that do Pilates together, stay together.

For more information on rates and scheduling, contact Avél at 954.804.8450
