What’s so special about Pilates?
Pilates is more than just a workout. It doesn’t only sculpt your body but it also clears your mind and gives you energy and inner serenity. After practicing Pilates and teaching it for many years, I’ve seen changes in my body and mind as well as observed the same transformation in my clients. Most people come to a Pilates class to get a flat tummy, ease joints pain and discomfort, rehabilitate after a surgery or improve their athletic performance. And yes Pilates can do all that!
Let me remind you of a few things:
You are not helpless or small. You are not powerless or weak.
You are _________ (insert first name) f*cking ______ (insert last name). 🦁 You know in the Lion King where Mufasa is in the clouds dropping wisdom on Simba and says “Remember who you are” 🦁
In case you’ve forgotten:
You are worthy.
You are more than enough.
You have a calling.
You are here on purpose.
You cannot be slowed down or stopped.
You will not give up.
You are powerful.
You are strong.
You are beautiful.
Do not focus on your weakness. Remember who you are and why you started. You will reach your goals quicker when you stay focused on your strengths and the positive. I know you have it in you. Show me it can be done. Show the world what you can do.

I started my recovery weighing 305 lbs. 😮😧😲🤪.... Over the past few months, I cut out the bad eating habits. I started eating healthy. I started yoga. I enhanced my meditation. I started running and boxing again. I've done what feels good.
My goal wasn't too lose weight. It was actually to learn some self love, find inner peace, and take better care of myself. I weighed myself a few minutes ago.... 🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁 248 lbs. That's almost 60 lbs.
I feel great. I've found that inner peace. I've found self love on such a deeper level than I ever thought. Just simply by doing what felt good.
I'm going to continue yoga. But, I think it's getting to the point where I would like to add something else.... Strength training...
I'm hesitant to lift again... Steroids were one drug I abused in my youth. They turned me into an asshole. I never want to go back to that. I know I can do it. I'm a little unsure of getting back in the gym though. I think I can do it now, because I'm sober and I have a much better head on my shoulders. It's not a "trigger". It's been a little over a decade since I used them. I've talked to people close to me about it... Friends, sponsor, counselor, doctor.. They say I can do it. Does anyone have experience in this area?? Any suggestions?? Anything to look out for?
Was Hippocrates right about scoliosis?
(by Dalton Myoskeletal Therapy)
Ever since Hippocrates coined the term scoliosis to describe deformity of the spinal column, structural scoliosis (the fixed type) has occupied the attention of researchers, physicians and manual therapists.
Early treatment modalities were often crude and sometimes violent, as well-meaning practitioners would walk on the scoliotic hump or apply excessive force using homemade, full-body traction devices. Nevertheless, these pioneering therapists did develop a number of sound therapeutic principles that still constitute essential features of many modern treatments, including . . .
