Toe Sox

 More than three years ago I couldn't get out of bed some days, do to a messed up back. I was real scared. A friend told me that I should try Pilates. I was willing to try anything...drugs didn't really help and I didn't want to become dependant on medication. I made an appt. for a private session and I started noticing changes within a short time. I did semi private sessions with Kyla and I'd found my teacher. With her gentle and knowing way she carefully worked me to the point were I could join group classes and then to mat classes. Now, I've graduated from beginner classes to intermediate mat classes. I'm the most fit I've been in my adult life and I've lost 70 lbs. not all due to Pilates but definitely a big part of my weigh loss success.

Pinot and Pilates raises awareness about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and gives an opportunity to enjoy an evening with friends (new & old), clients, and supporters... and where better than at St. Hubertus!

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.
