Roll with It

Pilates is a highly effective method of exericse to strengthen and tone your body, with particular emphasis on your “core” – a complex series of muscle around your abdomen, lower back, hips, and pelvis. Your core is incorportaed int almost every moveemnt of your body and working on these muscles can transform how you look and feel. Having a strong core is important for optimum health and vitality. You will leave my Pilates classes feeling invigorated and ready to take on the world.

Roll with It
Are you lacking in flexibility? Have muscle soreness? either from sports, sitting at a desk or sedentary lifestyle? The roll release class is a way to learn how to perform myofascial release on trigger points. These trigger points are sore spots on the muscle, which can reduce mobility and create poor posture through tight muscles. The roll release class looks to target massaging the soreness away using a foam roller and stretching techniques.
Loosening up connective tissue can increase flexibility and reduce pain – helping improve posture and performance. In the class you will learn how to use the foam roller. You will roll over muscles slowly, stopping on trigger points, followed by a stretch to target that specific muscle group. These sessions are great after a heavy week playing sport, sitting at a desk all week or prior to a run/game.
