In-Depth: Childhood obesity rises during COVID-19 pandemic

Someone who is a many year client is a bit of a local celebrity in the News this morning! Dr. Chu is a Wellness Pediatrician and speaks about the negative health issues the pandemic had on childhood obesity. The really refreshing part of this local news coverage was the wrap up that Dr. Chu so succinctly stated in an overall message of hope with a simple change of habitual patterns from negative to positive! Take a quick look! Happy Friday!

In-Depth: Childhood obesity rises during COVID-19 pandemic A new study from the CDC shows the rates of childhood obesity skyrocketed during the Pandemic. ABC 10News Reporter Jared Aarons talks to San Diego pediatricians to find out why, and what parents can do about it.

I don’t always share the rewards of what I hope I do well, but every once in a while, my day is made brighter by the work I do and that makes my purpose that much sweeter! Sharing one with you and Happy Friday folks!

My job (really a life’s work and knowledge) brings me joy almost every day. However, when I get to help another human function and move more efficiently through their day, it makes me ecstatic!

[05/04/19]   Happy Pilates Day!

[02/06/19]   Some things the people say are awesome, thank you Kelley! See you next week.

[08/15/18]   Pilates for Length!
What happens when you lift/weight train/bulk out too much? P-I-L-A-T-E-S! There is a small part of the population that can easily build, or with great effort, can build a lot of muscle structure on their bones. Although a small portion of the population, it can be an impediment to anatomically correct movement.
Pilates works to lengthen AND strengthen at the same time. Perhaps you've never been flexible...Although, flexibility is largely genetically imprinted, a solid amount of flexibility can be attained through a regular, quality Pilates practice.
If you or someone you know could use some deep and effective mobility with any part of their frame, contact a qualified, local Pilates instructor!
Happy Wednesday Neighbors!

[07/10/18]   PILATES AND POSTURE

Have you ever worried about losing height as you age? Ever wondered what to do about rolled shoulder, or a kyphotic spine(hunchback)? Ever experienced neck or back pain from poor posture? Know someone who has?

Pilates, when done correctly, addresses all of these issues and more. A large portion of the exercises and stretches ingrained in PIlates methodology serve to protect, strengthen and release the musculature along the spine as needed. A well-trained, experienced Pilates instructor can address these issues, and work towards keeping you defying gravity.

[06/27/18]   Strength, Bone Mass and Pilates

Its a fact that we lose bone density as early as our 30's! YES, that is correct. While not everyone is aware of this, it occurs more often than we know. Part of keeping bone density as we age is strength building. Along with short bursts of medium to high impact, strength training is a crucial part of keeping and even increasing bone density.
A great way to gain strength and increase bone density is with a qualified and well-experienced Pilates instructor. Well worth it to try out! Make sure to check your instructors' qualifications before beginning a program.
Happy Wednesday neighbors!

[06/19/18]   Range of Motion, Aging and Pilates!
Range of motion is critical, especially as we age. Although flexibility is equally as important, the range in which we are able to mobilize musculoskeletal structures is also of interest in aging. The phrase, "motion is lotion", is true in this case. Ranges of motion are typically easily accessible in youth, yet through causal or unintentional overuse, underuse or improper alignment, may deteriorate over time. It isn't THAT we move, necessarily, but HOW me move that can make all the difference. Regaining ROM after an injury, to prevent injury or simply to enjoy a better quality of life in beautiful Southern California, is essential. If you or someone you know suffers from immobility and it has negatively affected their life, I would highly recommend you speak with an experienced, well-trained Pilates instructor. Odds are very good, this can be corrected over time and with the right help!
Happy Taco Tuesday neighbors!
