I’m honored to have been recently featured in ShoutOut La magazine where they interviewed me about my teaching career, how I define success and what I feel has been pivotal in my business.

They also gave me an opportunity to plug another LA movement biz that I felt deserved recognition. Naturally, I mentioned Kaira Studios, which has given local teachers a space to work with their clients and thrive.

Here’s what my clients and I played with today in their sessions at Kaira Studios: down dog, plank, up dog, lunges, extended side angle pose and more...

Embodied learning to the max with resistance from the springs for pushing and pulling.

We also compared and contrasted how many of these movements felt both:

1. With and without the reformer spring
2. Using a 6 foot dowel on the mat for leverage and feedback

If you experiment with this flow lmk how it goes!

Benefits of Pilates for Men

One of the biggest misconceptions about Pilates is that it was created for women, when really, it was created for everybody - by a MAN! The method is actually particularly great for men for a few reasons:

1) It balances out both strength and flexibility - men may often be used to focusing on strength training, but in Pilates classes and exercises, you will gain strength without sacrificing mobility and flexibility

2) It's a total body workout - you'll work muscles you never even knew you had, while drawing attention to any imbalances you have in different sides of the body and helping you strengthen them

3) It focuses on core strength - many people use Pilates as a crosstraining method because it focuses on core strength, making both every day movements and other forms of exercises easier and safer

4) Reduces stress - a big component of Pilates is breathing and centering, which will help you to reduce stress and find better mental clarity

These are just a few reasons Pilates can be great for men - but it really is for everybody!

It's ok to rest 🌿 In fact, your body needs recovery time so you don't get injured!

Be sure to schedule in 'rest days' each week - although that doesn't mean you have to stop moving. Try going for a walk or doing gentle movement like our 10 min Restore Your Core class.

Pilates for Strength Training at home!

Drop a 💪 emoji if Pilates has ever made you stronger!

Pilates has a reputation for helping with flexibility and mobility (all true!) but as you can see from @nicolewatkinspilates in this video, it’s also a method of full body strength training.

And the great thing is, you don’t even need to get on the Pilates equipment to see a change in your strength. The Pilates mat repertoire utilizes bodyweight to improve your strength, and we love involving props into our online Pilates mat classes to add even more resistance like what you’d get on the equipment.

⚡️ Ready to try Pilates to help build strength? Head to the link below for our FREE Beginner Pilates series to ease you in:

If you take Pilates classes in our online studio, you know one of the best things about them is our variety of teachers! 🧑‍🏫

Pilates teachers are not all created the same, and we think that's a good thing 🙌

From Michelle's yoga training and recovery expertise, to Felicia and Nicole's dance backgrounds, to Amy's classical training, you'll notice our teachers bring their diversity of movement experiences to classes.

Have you ever wondered what type of Pilates teacher YOU would be?

We've got a free and fun quiz for you to find out!

➡️ Would you be better at teaching athletes or older adults?
➡️ Groups or online?
➡️ Classical or contemporary?

Find out and share your results with us here!

We’d bet money that when you see this video, your upper body is curled over your phone…😉

…and that’s ok! We can’t possibly have great posture all the time, but in this modern, tech-filled world we do spend so much time in this position that our chest gets tight, and our upper back muscles get weaker. Over time this can lead to back, shoulder, or chest pain 😣

So try this simple cactus stretch on your foam roller (we like a 36” one to support the whole spine and head) either at lunch to break up your time at your computer or desk, or at the start or end of a long day.

➡️ Then don’t forget to add upper back exercises to strengthen the muscles that support your spine - we have an online Pilates class or two that can help 😉

🔔 You can always start again 🔔

If you planned on starting January with a 'New Year, New You' fitness routine, but have slowly dropped off as life got in the way - we feel you.

Sometimes those January challenges and resolutions just don't work out with your schedule: a family member gets sick, work deadlines ask more of you, seasonal depression hits. You're not alone if you feel guilty for not sticking to your movement goals this month.

So today, a gentle reminder for anyone who needs it: You can always start again. Whether it's today, or next week.

Be gentle with yourself as you navigate a new year and another month of this pandemic.

We'll be here for you when you're ready to get on the mat 🌿
