Sure, you can take Pilates classes anywhere, just like you can buy fast food or fast fashion. But you're not like anyone else. Why should your body get the same treatment as anyone else's? Your history is unique. Your body tells a special story and your dance is only yours. At Equipoise, you get time to really delve into what you need with someone who will witness, teach, guide, and encourage you. You are not alone. No one gets through life unscathed. A poet once said, "We're all just walking each other home." I'm here to make sure you've got what you need to make the journey, to make it safely, and to make it beautifully.
If you're tired of the same old routine, the same aches, it's time to change the game. Perhaps an old injury changed your relationship to gravity, and you've been compensating ever since. Your shoulder pain may not mean there's anything wrong with your shoulder. Find out what unused potential is waiting to be unlocked in your body. I have many tools besides Pilates. Mindless exercise will not solve anything. You will have to engage your mind, your heart, your imagination. When these plus the right techniques and assessments come together, you can bring back the inherent wisdom and potential freedom the human body already knows and is wired for.
Whether you're 8 or 88, you will benefit from this training. But did you know that when it comes to how to train, different ages need to train differently? Balance, agility, strength, flexibility, and yes, that pesky CORE all come into play. At Equipoise, you will receive the right tools and guidance to make lasting changes, whether you're a young athlete or dancer, or an elder golfer or bookworm. Change starts with accurate self-perception and awareness of your body, and these skills are part of every movement session. You're going to stretch your mind as well as your body.
