Side Body Strength and Stretch

Sometimes we need a little more attention to our side bodies. Use this workout to challenge some of your balance, strength, and mobility. I love this workout as a great compliment to yoga. Focus on your alignment as small changes yield big results. It is easy to default into our postural imbalances in our side work but stay with it and you’ll be in for a nice treat.

Upper Body Foam Roller

Spending too much time on the computer or driving?  This is a great active recovery class that will focus on self-massage to increase blood flow and some passive upper body movement to open chest and shoulders. Keep relaxed nasal breathing through this one as our muscles that work with respiration are sometimes closely related to tension.

Abs Series

This is the traditional Pilates Ab series that was taught in NYC by Pilates Protege Romana. It is a great 5 exercises that improve core strength while giving you a nice stretch in the lower body.


It’s a perfect example of using a two-way stretch from a strong center. Try to work your upper and lower body really long away from your center and you keep that rock solid to the mat :)

Lower Body Foam Roller

Need a little recover from too much activity or too little?  Sometimes we need a little self-massage to help facilitate blood flow and open up our lower extremities. Try this if you are stiff from too much sitting or intense exercise. Recover and restore to revitalize.

Foam Roller Workout

There isn’t just Pilates Mat, there is also Pilates equipment that uses springs for added resistance or assistance. I love mimicking some of the traditional Pilates Reformer work on the foam roller to add a little bit of dynamic and challenge to my practice. This is a great workout for everyone especially those that workout on apparatus.

Rock and Roll Mat

One of my favorites! I am a runner in addition to doing Pilates and Yoga and a big kid at heart. This intermediate/advanced workout is a super fun way to find new strength and flexibility in your body. Have fun and make sure you double up your mat or add a blanket underneath as we will be rocking and rolling!

Mountain Climber

This class is sure to get your heart pumping!  Mountain climber is a great circuit to build power and strength in your lower body. The exercises in this class should get a good sweat going and a consistent repeat of this one will have you bounding up mountains in no time. Pay attention to the alignment of your feet on this one as that is where your power starts.
