Meet Halle!
Halle Is an apprentice Pilates Instructor. She recently completed the extensive teacher training program through STOTT Pilates in Portland, Oregon, and has been working on her teaching journey for the past couple years. Halle grew up around Pilates and has been practicing since she was young. She discovered her love of Pilates from her brother Ryan, who owns Twist Pilates, and her sister Heidi, a licensed physical therapist and certified Pilates Instructor.

In her own practice, Halle loves the combination of stretching, strengthening, and coordination along with the fact that you can make exercises more challenging or restorative, depending on how your body is feeling each day. Halle believes that every body is a Pilates body and wants each of her clients to feel comfortable and confident as they discover the Pilates method.

Understanding Pilates and the Pelvic Floor

“The key things to keep in mind as we reflect on pelvic floor health are focusing on our breath, bringing down the stressors in our lives, and having a healthy relationship with the floor are simple ways to stay strong and restore balance.”

Understanding Pilates and the Pelvic Floor The pelvis at large is like the steering wheel of the body and plays a central role in bipedal locomotion.When we refer to the pelvic floor, we are often referring to the soft tissue structures that close the bottom of the pelvic bones. These dynamic and spring-like structures support the pelvic org...

Wring Out All of Your Mid-Back Tension with This 12-Minute Deep Core Pilates Workout — Well+Good 02/16/2021

Wring Out All of Your Mid-Back Tension with This 12-Minute Deep Core Pilates Workout — Well+Good

“I love twisting when we are strengthening our core,” he says. “It really helps us decrease tension in our mid-back, mobilize the space between the shoulder blades, and challenges our stability in a movement we do all the time in our daily life. Twisting is one of the best ways to literally unwind your body, and helps to wring out all of the extra tension that’s stored up in your muscles. The fact that it builds strength is just the cherry on top.
