Operating as usual
It was such an honor to lead the 10 for 10 Challenge with @lovewell.earth and @teresapalmer ✨
I hope this little challenge helped you initiate rituals of self-care including a pilates mat practice.
A little bit everyday goes a long way. Finding just 10 minutes on the mat can change how you experience your body.
Challengers - be on the lookout for an exclusive offer from Mind & Motion.
I’d love to continue your pilates mat practice together into the future. ✨
I just want to take a moment to recognize the heaviness in my heart over the massacre in Uvalde, Texas yesterday. Hearing about yet another US mass shooting, and this one involving children, permeates my emotional being.
I have a lot to say about it. But here is what I’ll say to you:
If hearing about this awful tragedy has brought you to a place of despair, moving on the mat may deliver some tiny piece of resolve. Allow all of the feelings to arise. They will form a picture of how to move forward.
As a Movement Specialist, my desire to help all of those feelings move through you so that they don’t get stuck in your body.
US Government: we need to have a different conversation.
Remember you can do these moves anytime and anywhere that suits you. Add them into the fold of your day!
Our challenge with @lovewell.earth has begun. Because our challenge is GLOBAL, Australia has already begun day 1. USA: your first email will be delivered when you wake tomorrow!
The Day 1 workout is the perfect early morning stretch routine. It’s full of moves that feel good!!!
If you’ve joined us for the challenge, let me know how this first mat class feels.
There’s still time to join us for the Challenge. We will be here for the next 10 days!
Here is our announcement once again featuring the adorable Poet.
Stay to the end because it gets funny…. 🤣
Challenge starts Monday! Sign-up in my profile. @teresapalmer @lovewell.earth
I had a great chat with @teresapalmer today. We spoke about the Challenge, beginning a movement practice, the history of Pilates (!), and the benefits of the floor. Have a listen.
The challenge begins May 23rd!!! We would love to see your name in our group. You will receive a new pilates class each day of the challenge. Also @lovewell.earth will be giving discounts for all of those signed up!!!!!!
Join @teresapalmer and I as we go LIVE here on IG tomorrow (Monday) at 10:30am PST.
I will talk a little bit on the history of Pilates but also why I think we should all be getting on the floor daily.
Head to my stories to set a reminder 😍
See you soon!!!!

Details coming tomorrow!!!
Which emotions are welling up in you today?
I imagine many of us are celebrating, mourning, or somewhere in between. No matter what today's holiday brings, one thing is certain: to be mothered is to be nurtured and that is something we all deserve.
I’m so blessed to spend the day with both my mama and my daughter. I hope today brings you blessings as well! 💕
My conversation with @jodiegosscoaching on the mind-body connection and healing.
If you’re in chronic pain or fatigue, this is for you.
You can listen to this like a podcast (especially since my video is a little glitchy).
So lovely to connect with you today Jodie!
This month I’m focusing on the mind. May is mental health awareness month but we are starting this conversation a bit early.
Here is an example of how I’m considering your thoughts and the dialogue in your mind. All while moving your body.
Mind & Motion takes a holistic approach to your wellness.
I know a lot of people use the word holistic in their branding but it’s not always apparent how that is being implemented.
I hear mind-body a lot too. Again, I’m not sure how that is being addressed.
Your mind is always present. It’s hard to turn it off completely. So let’s consider it, and recognize the possibilities for change.
Hello April! This month I will be talking about the MIND. There’s a reason I named my studio Mind & Motion….
This week’s Journal article is about neuroplasticity and exercise. If want to be on my mailing list, please visit my website. My newsletter is sent every Sunday with a new Journal, tips and links to new workouts.
Here I discuss how pilates helps with brain function!!!!!
I love that pilates is cerebral. What do you love about pilates???
Just some of the offerings on the Mind & Motion virtual studio.
Which one do you need?
This week on the Journal I discuss how we make pilates personalized on the virtual studio. Link in my profile.
In honor of International Woman’s Day, and my daughter, Henrietta’s 8th birthday, I want to recognize the women who need it most right now.
100% of new sales on the virtual studio will go to @urgentactionfund from now until Friday March 11th.
If you’ve been wanting to try the studio, now is a great time to sign up. You will still get the 7 day free trial and then your first month’s payment will go directly to support the women of Ukraine.
UAK is a feminist and trans activist nonprofit and is supporting women in Ukraine who need support with emergency evacuations and relocations and increasing shelter capacities for women and children.
Women! We are survivors, nurturers, and propagators of life. Let’s embrace, hold and support one another.
Here’s a little reminder to get up and stretch. Just 2 minutes can feel like a refresh.
Fold these moves into your day. 😊
This is a fun one I shot for our postpartum pilates series 😬
Moms! Take a moment and join me on the mat, anytime, anywhere. New moms: we have a postpartum pilates series to get your body moving again. This is the bridge to go from no exercise to starting the process!
NEW MOMS! This one is for you. I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my postpartum series.
These sessions are less about ‘getting back into shape’ snd more of a reconnection to the body.
This 6 part series covers:
• postural changes
• reconnecting to core
• pelvic floor restoration
• creating a strong stable pelvis
• improving upper body strength
This series is the perfect bridge to take into our regular workouts.
Only available through the Mind & Motion membership.
It was really wonderful starting 2022, reconnecting with and meeting new Mind & Motion members near and far. I’ve zoomed with fellow LA locals and virtual members in the UK and Germany! Mind & Motion is now global, people! 😊
I’ve been teaching for over 20 years which means… I’m older – lol. Part of what keeps me engaged and in this field is that I love having conversations with you, my clients. I like talking about the body and mind. I like identifying and understanding patterns. I love problem solving! Sometimes the conversations we undertake are intimate and honest. Sometimes it’s an unpacking of the subconscious and sometimes we figure out how to get your body feeling better. Just moving is an easy, healthy way to lower defenses, it helps new thoughts develop and encourages feelings to arise.
When I’m filming, I imagine the conversation that is transpiring between us. I’m filled with the possibilities of what you may be experiencing while you move through the virtual session.
Whether we are meeting in person in the LA studio or virtually through the website let’s continue the conversation. Drop me a line. I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you have questions about the workouts or if you need a little guidance. ✨
