Toe Sox

I had private Pilates sessions with Kyla using the reformer, cadillac, barrel and chair for over two years.  She brings an extensive knowledge of anatomy and attention to detail to her teaching as well as enthusiasm and a friendly encouraging attitude.  With Kyla's help, I was able to resolve long-standing postural issues which had caused intermittent pain over the years and come to a new level of fitness and awareness of my body.  I recommend Kyla highly as a Pilates trainer.

Alive Mindful Healing Massage is a type of quiet Healing Massage that includes both breath awareness exercises and body scanning for muscle tension during the treatment session.  The addition of these two mindful awareness activities, during the healing massage,  will provide you with two mindful self-regulation tools that you can use in daily practice.  In addition, a mindful intention or quote will be read to start each session and the sound of a singing bowl may be used to gently direct your awareness inward.

Featured Exercise

Thoracic Rotation: “the Twist”

I love this particular twist when I am spending my day typing and writing. It helps wring out tension in the back, neck, and shoulders. 

It takes less than 2 minutes. 

Here's how:

  1. Sit tall, feet firmly planted, sitting bones equally positioned on the chair.
  2. Place your right hand on your left knee and your left hand behind you on your chair seat.
  3. Inhale, and as you exhale, twist to your left. Be easy – don't go to your maximum.
  4. Take two more breaths and then switch direction.
  5. Be sure you can breathe easy and your jaw is relaxed.
