Phoenix Pilates and Rossiter Center for Pain Management, Mobility and Wellness BellaBody Pilates is located in a serene, modern and pristine studio.
The studio is fully equipped with Balanced Body Studio/Tower Reformer, EXO chair, and Cadillac/Trapeze Table. 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. The Rossiter Stretching System for pain management and mobility is an additional modality offered. Rossiter Stretching is a unique, powerful approach that quickly and effectively removes pain at its source. No drugs, no shots and no surgery. Chronic pain can be managed naturally because we can address the structural pain and restriction of movement at its source- the connective tissue system. You will experience noticeable looseness in your joints with every session. Our clients appreciate the quiet personal touch-a welcome respite from the large reformer-only, loud music, boot-camp style, no pain-no gain "Pilates" studios popping up all over. We are able to customize our sessions for our clients, who range from age 10 to 84, 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. BBP 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 a 30 minute consultation to learn how Pilates can help you become stronger and in the best shape of your life. It’s a great workout for all ages and fitness levels. Whether you’re an Ironman athlete or haven’t worked out in years, Pilates can be customized to meet your fitness goals!

💪🏻Working out on the Pilates EXO chair. In my opinion, this small apparatus is the hardest of all Pilates equipment. It’s body weight vs. the springs. Too much spring resistance and you can catapult off. Less spring resistance and it’s sooooo haaaard!
⚜️This exercise is called “Mountain Climber” and has varying levels of difficulty. The first level is holding onto the chair, next is shifting your center of gravity forward and up.
❓Why do this exercise? It builds glute strength,l (wake up Sleepy Butt!) balance, control, core strength and is fun to do! It’s great for hikers, runners, golfers and anyone who wants a great looking AND strong booty🍑
📞I am now accepting new students and Rossiter Stretching for pain management and mobility starting October 7th! I promise I won’t make you do this exercise at your first lesson 😜

I know many of you have been quarantined to one extent to another over the past few months. If you’re like me, it’s easy to fall off the wagon with poor nutrition, inactivity and too much binge-watching. Feeling bloated, achy and waking up exhausted does not help you improve your immune system coming into this flu season!
To help you get off the couch, get moving with energy, get restorative sleep and get healthier I’ve joined up with an amazing network of friends to give you free coaching, movement classes and motivational Facebook Lives. We are launching October 5th and I’m putting together my waitlist now!
Who should do this? Open to men and women- if you’ve had trouble staying with keto, Whole 30, anything that requires a weeks worth of prep, apps to track macros or just plain portion control. We are increasing your protein and flooding your body with incredible nutrition.
Two options- 14 day Reset and Shred/28 day Nutritional Balancing- you choose what works best for your goals and lifestyle. Free shipping on products and 30 day money back guarantee. You can’t go wrong!
I posted my 4 month challenge results below-besides the weight and inches lost- I have tons of energy, my joints don’t hurt anymore, my back pain is completely gone and I sleep through the night for the first time in 35 years (pre-babies).
For the deets- let me know in the comments and I will fill you in. I hope you’ll join me!

Intermittent Fasting May be Beneficial For Heart Health
Heart disease is currently the world’s biggest killer .
It is known that various health markers (so-called “risk factors”) are associated with either an increased or decreased risk of heart disease.
Intermittent fasting has been shown to improve numerous different risk factors, including blood pressure, total and LDL cholesterol, blood triglycerides, inflammatory markers and blood sugar levels
Bottom Line: Studies show that intermittent fasting can improve numerous risk factors for heart disease such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglycerides and inflammatory markers.
I love this crazy photo of Joe Pilates standing on famed opera star Roberta Peters abdomen. One of my flute teachers, the late Thomas Nyfenger, who was married to a New York City Ballet dancer had me stand on his belly the same way. He did that to demonstrate how strong his diaphragm muscle was and he raised me up and down with it. I was 12 years old at the time and probably weighed about 80 pounds. I’ve always wondered if Mr. Nyfenger or his wife took lessons with Joe Pilates and learned this from him. I’ve asked around in the Pilates world with people who were around that time and no one knows. In any case- it’s a great example of how these exercises can make you strong!
In my BellaBody Better Bones+Balance class I am always talking about the importance of strengthening your feet and ankles.
Today while playing golf in beautiful Sedona, my ball landed in an awful spot- a ravine upslope just below the green. Buried in some thick muddy grass. My stance required good balance—my weight shifted onto my right leg with a transfer to my left as I swung through (well, chopped) the ball. Good core strength, proprioception (where one’s body is in space), ability to visualize where the ball should land. A very challenging situation and shot! I ended up with a bogie (5 strokes on a par 4) which under the circumstances I was happy about). Not every golf ball lies on an even, fluffy piece of grass.
Having strong feet and ankles can help you anytime you are on an uneven surface- not just a golf course.
Join my class next Monday August 17 and Wednesday August 19 from 8-10am PST online you improve your balance and quality of life.
What are your three? Do you have three? Please share!
Mine are Pilates, Core/Balance/Weights, Walking with Gardening, Golf and Water Fitness depending on how hot it is outside.
washingtonpost.com Recent research concludes that switching it up leads to more total activity and better overall health.
I find this chart is very helpful in recognizing whether hunger is a Physical urge or an emotional response that appears to be hunger. I would also add to the Emotional side of the list that sometimes being dehydrated, especially living in the desert, gives the brain a similar signal as being hungry. Also having a sound trigger like a food commercial on TV, someone opening the refrigerator door, smelling popcorn when you walk into a movie theater (or Target and they totally know that and use it to their advantage).
Having a convenient, healthy snack that will satisfy you is the key to avoiding a major binge session and ending up in the dreaded guilt/shame/self-hatred/depression/hopelessness diet cycle. You don’t have to go there ever once you recognize these signs and learn how to prepare in advance. So much of the weight loss journey is psychological and just learning how to play your mind’s game differently. If you’re curious on how to play the game a different way and stop beating yourself up, to learn The Art of Wellness with me I’d be happy to show you the way. It’s so much more fun!

This week’s online schedule on @coretocoeur is now posted.
No class this coming Friday or all next week- having some long awaited construction in my house and we will be going to Sedona while it’s being done. Sadly we have terrible WiFi up there- it would be such an amazing place to hold my classes. If that changes I will update.
I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of demolition, dust, workmen(hello #covid19),open doors with 110+ degree heat, loud saws,smelly glues and other associated messy stuff. Love the results though! Lived through 4 months of it starting when I was 9 months pregnant with a 2 year old in an 1840 house in Burlington, VT. Ever since, highly allergic to being around any time work has to be done. That was the worst and having two little babies then! The end result was amazing but what an ordeal. Will post before/after pix 👍🏻

Updated schedule for this week. Please note that there will not be class this Friday and all of next week due to construction in my home.
I love incorporating #superfood #nutrition into my daily routine. So simple and effective. Not only am I getting 100% of the #vitamin, #vitamer, and #protein requirements that my body needs but it’s balanced and delicious. No need to count calories, macros, do #keto, do #mealprep or any of the other seemingly endless tasks that I did before. The best part is it’s only $3 a meal. My usual go-to lunch, a Taylor Farms style salad with a pouch of salmon or tuna with some dressing- twice the calories, twice the fat half the protein and twice the price. I’m down over 20 lbs and 14” since the end of February but even better-tons of energy and sleeping like a baby. Curious on trying this yourself? I have a private Facebook group I can add you to- dm to learn more. .

Swiffer WetJet is sad that gyms are still closed in #arizona for 2 more weeks and my studio is so quiet! I appreciate the daily connections with my online studio family who are also some of my former BellaBody Pilates studio clients. So grateful I was offered the opportunity to try something new and that it is successful. It’s never too late to start over- I’ve had three careers with teaching Pilates my third. During this unpredictable pandemic we must adapt, be flexible, be creative, stay positive, learn new things quickly, be open to change, listen intensely, be ready to take action or miss opportunities. What lessons have you learned and be willing to share? If you could do one thing over- what would it be? .

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!
