Not on my watch! I’m all about the glutes - not just to look good but to be functional. Getting up from your chair, getting down on the floor to play with your dog (or grandchildren), prevent you from falling and keep you upright. Come see me to build your b***y!

Had a new #rossiterstretching and Pilates client come in today. She sits all day for work and has neck and shoulder pain that’s affecting her daily activities. I use an intake questionnaire to get understanding of medical history (accidents, surgeries, past and current treatments/therapies) followed by a tutorial on what she will do during the stretches. What makes Rossiter Stretching unique is that the client is in charge of their session. The more they move and use the lock technique, the better result they will have. Unlike massage, chiropractic and acupuncture (which I love too) the client is not passively laying down receiving the care. It’s a workout! We still had a little time left to try out the reformer too. She will be back again Thursday for Round 2!

If you’re putting up with pain or stiffness, not able to “hold” an adjustment or massage more than a day, then let’s talk! Let me help you step out of pain! 🦶🏻🧦

Preventing falls and improving balance

I’m excited that my article on fall prevention and improving balance will be in this Friday’s print edition of the Arizona Jewish News. In the meantime, you can read it online.

Speaking of online- I offer 3 Bone Health + Balance (aka Buff Bones) classes every week. MWF at 9am through Core to Coeur. I have several free passes for new students. Message me for the “secret code”.

https://www.jewishaz.com/families_lifestyle/preventing-falls-and-improving-balance/article_777a0528-c317-11eb-b41d-2bd02142ff2c.html

Preventing falls and improving balance What do former Arizona Governor Rose Mofford, actor Gary Coleman, writer Kurt Vonnegut and songwriter Leonard Cohen all have in common? Sadly, they all died from a fall.

Who’s been living with chronic pain, aches and stiffness through this work from home pandemic? Tired of doctors giving you pills, injections that don’t work and tired of chasing the pain?

Come see me for a Rossiter Stretching session. Unique, effective and miraculous method of opening space in your body to relieve pain and improve mobility. You participate in your healing- you move with my guidance and foot.

Foot??? Yes- it’s an incredible tool. Placed in the right spots throughout your body, I then guide you to move creating a pin and stretch sensation. You are in total control the whole time unlike a passive massage, acupuncture, chiropractic or other stretch therapies out there. You will feel lighter and looser when we’re finished. Give it a try!

Let me help you step out of pain! Message me for available appointment times. HSA accounts accepted!

Inspiring all day Fletcher Pilates 2021 International Conference. I learned so many fun twists to existing work and gained insights on movement that were totally new. Beyond that, all of the videos of Ron Fletcher-- his interview on Donahue (I probably watched it way back when), clips of him teaching, his past life as a dancer and choreographer were totally new to me and as a history buff I loved learning about him. As Pilates people, we hear a lot about Romana Kryzanowska (she taught a lot of people)and not much about the other Pilates Elders. Hearing Ron Fletcher's stories about Joseph and Clara Pilates in his own voice was priceless.

I'm grateful to my friend Kyria Sabin, Director of Fletcher Pilates for all of her hard work putting this conference together. Hopefully next year it will be in person.

Here are a few shots from the Fletcher Towel class (my shoulders will "thank" me tomorrow lol), Foot workshop (ahhhhhh) and my little Pilates partner Swiffer WetJet was so good and patient all day long. As soon as I turned off the Zoom he woke up from his nap on my Reformer, bowed to his mistress and was ready to play with his ball 😂

Excited to get my Fletcher Towel today in time for the Fletcher Pilates 2021 Virtual Conference. I’ve been wanting to get one of these for-ever and learn the Towel Work. This year’s conference celebrates what would have been the 100th birthday of Ron Fletcher, one of the “Pilates Elders”- a first generation teacher who studied directly under Joseph and Clara Pilates. He brought the Pilates Method to the west coast and taught celebrities—Cher, Barbra Streisand, Ben Vereen, Goldie Hawn and Raquel Welch. I’m sure he heard some juicy stories over the years 😉

Attending continuing education and updating my skills has been a passion of mine and necessary to maintain my National Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT) certification. I have missed going to these conferences this past year and looking forward to reconnecting with my Pilates peeps near and far.

Thank you to Kyria Sabin Fletcher Pilates for your leadership and vision!

I work with all types of populations so even if you think you can't "do Pilates" I will help you change your mind!

Diastasis Recti. What the heck is that? Is it the name of a band?

No- it’s when your re**us abdominus (the dividing line in your “six-pack” muscles) splits open. How the heck does that happen?

It frequently happens when the abdominal pressure gets stronger than the muscle and forces it open. Pregnancy, obesity and rotational sports like hockey,golf,tennis put too much pressure and the weakened muscle starts to split. It affects men AND women.

If you’ve ever done crunches and noticed a doming of your stomach- a ridge going vertically from above your belly button down to your p***c bone- you quite possibly have it. Other times it looks like a deep crater around your belly button.

What can you do about this?

It can be healed using several techniques. A combination of specific exercises, education on movements and exercises to avoid (planks, crunches only make it worse), nutrition that helps your body heal from the inside.

Interested in learning more about how to heal this safely and to keep it from coming back? Let’s talk! I am considering running some group online classes to teach you how to identify DR and heal it. Message me if you’d like to know more.

Meet the new addition to my studio-Lifepro Rumblex Pro vibration plate. I’ve been eyeing this for several months and caught a good sale on it a few weeks ago. Those FaceBook ads really work lol!

What does this do? It vibrates in different directions and speeds. What is it good for? I bought it specifically for bone health and balance but it can boost your metabolism, improve circulation, help with lymphatic drainage, relieve joint and back pain, increase mobility, strengthen your core and is so relaxing for massage after a stressful day or hard workout. I have been doing Mat Pilates with it and boy does it ever amplify the abdominal work!

I will put the LifePro link in the comments. They have many different models, sizes and price points. Lots of other goodies like the massage guns (another indispensable tool to have around).Free shipping, fantastic warranty and the nicest, most responsive customer service. Lots of how-to videos and a great private Facebook group. have a 10% off coupon code to share if you do buy anything off their site “PHOENIXPILATES”

I’d like to be like her someday! Pilates keeps your body supple yet strong, encourages an upright posture that combats aging/computer slouch, connects your mind with your body and improves your breathing/oxygen flow. All of these points contribute to active aging. Come join my online classes Monday/Wednesday and Fridays at 9am MT. I have a few free passes to share for March.

Today’s March MatNess exercise is one of my favorites and deceptively difficult- Open Leg Rocker. Similar to Rolling Like a Ball but the legs are extended during the rolling. It requires abdominal strength, balance, breath control and concentration. You can try this with your legs bent in “table top” and hold on behind your knees. Give it try!
PS 1 1/2 years post spinal fusion. Yes it’s possible!

Strength and Stretching from the Inside/Out

Phoenix Pilates and Rossiter Center is located in a home studio in Ahwatukee, near beautiful South Mountain Park. The studio is fully equipped with Balanced Body Studio Classical-style Reformer, Cadillac/Trapeze Table, EXO Chair and small props. Whether props or equipment are used in your session, the beauty of Pilates is that they are all effective in helping you meet your fitness goals. As a Certified Rossiter Practitioner, I have all of the tools available to help you become pain-free and more mobile.

Rossiter Workouts are an amazing way to get rid of chronic pain as well as acute pain quickly and effectively with long-lasting results in many cases. As the very first Certified Rossiter Practitioner in Arizona, I am excited to share this incredible system of deep connective tissue stretching with you! We apply weight with our foot to designated areas of your body while we coach you to stretch in different directions. Adhesions from scar tissue, past injuries or current issues release causing your bones to fall into place, creating better alignment and space--all restoring your mobility and eliminating pain. I was skeptical of this myself before I did my first workout and trying it is believing. Unlike a massage or other stretch therapies where you just lie there, a Rossiter Workout involves YOU stretching your entire body and being actively involved and in control of the workout the entire time.


Our clients appreciate the quiet personal touch--a welcome respite from the large reformer-only, loud music, boot-camp style, no pain-no gain "McPilates" studios popping up all over. Sessions are customized for our clients, who range from age 10 to 85, young dancers and gymnasts looking to improve their flexibility and competitiveness to older folks who've completed rehab and want to continue to improve their range of motion and strength after surgery. We have completed advanced training working with Pre- and Post Natal women, Diastasis Recti (male and female), those with MS, Parkinson's, stroke, autoimmune diseases, hip and knee replacements, scoliosis and post-mastectomy. Phoenix Pilates and Rossiter Center also offers special Pilates for Golf packages using strength and flexibility techniques to help shave strokes and add yards to your game.

I invite you to call Phoenix Pilates and Rossiter Center today at 602-318-5068 to schedule your first Pilates session or Rossiter Workout. I can help you become stronger and in the best shape of your life. Whether you’re an Ironman athlete or haven’t worked out in years, Pilates can be customized to meet your fitness goals!
