Polestar Educator Highlight: Mirko Turla ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I love being able to help others reduce or eliminate body pains, improve their movements and their relationship with their bodies. I truly believe that this ultimately translates into a happier life and spirit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I took my first Polestar comprehensive in Hong Kong in 2003 with Dawnna Wayburne. I subsequently took reformer and mat course with her in 2005 and 2006. I’ve learned a great deal from Dawnna - she is truly a phenomenal teacher! Over the years, other Polestar Educators that influenced my teaching were Brent Anderson, Shelly Power, Sherri Betz, and Dav Cohen. I was also very fortunate to attend various classes and workshops with the legendary Lolita San Miguel, Mary Bowen and Deborah Lessen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I gravitated towards Pilates because I was dealing with back pains years ago and I read how beneficial it was. I started with mat, then moved on to equipment and I felt its amazing benefits almost immediately!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read the whole Blog: Link in Bio 🌟 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #pilates #iampolestar #polestargrad #polestargraduate #pilatesinstructor #pilatesteacher #pilatesformen #pilatesmat #pilatesblog #pilatesblogger #pasadenapilates #pasadena #pilatespasadena #losangelespilates #pilateslosangeles #pilatesschool #pilatesstudio #pilatesmethodalliance #pilatescommunity #pilatesfit

Tis’ the season to be busy more than jolly, right? Slowing down during the holiday season might not seem realistic as many of our jobs or family commitments seem to take over the calendar faster than we can turn the page from November to December, but I encourage you this holiday season to love others through your evergrowing to-do list.⁠ ⁠ As you shop, be courteous to the clerk and ask how her day is going. If you are carpooling children to all of the festive activities, instead of becoming frustrated with their excitement level, soak in their joy and pure happiness as they anticipate seeing Santa. It is so easy to be task-oriented, but this holiday season let’s stay people-oriented by being kind, loving, and serving others first.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #krishaley #meltmethod #melttribe #pilatesstrong #livingfromtheinsideout #movebetternaturally #chronicpainrelief #painfreeliving #healingtouch #pilatesteacher #pilatesstrong #resleasestress #naturalpainrelief #restorebalance #losangelesfitness #losangelespilates #pilateslosangeles #fitness #localbusiness

Can I take you with me to California? PLLLEEEAAAASSSSEEEE…. I am so going to miss this gal! @acelisb came to my Teacher Training in 2016 and immediately was special. She worked full time but, was so passionate about Pilates and her energy and personality were awe inspiring. 🥰 ❤️ She is gentle, kind and so encouraging not only  to clients but, for those teachers around her. ❤️ 🥰 She has that same hunger to continue to learn and grow as a teacher that will always  be there for her, I am sure of that!  What a GIFT I got when she came  in to the studio. ❤️ 🥰 These are the hard moments. Just thinking of not seeing her during the week and hearing her beautiful laugh makes me cry. I know she will continue  to share the work and come to LA to play with her just as wonderful hubby! It is so rare to find teachers who are like Astrid and for those who get the chance to be taught by her or just be in her presence will know  what a special moment it is.

The #pilates studio backyard never gets old. 🏝 Finding myself with two hours (TWO HOURS!!) of a break between clients and had to get myself outside to the #beach ASAP. #selfcare isn’t just for clients... it can help clear our minds, refocus, prioritize and reset to get back to the #wellness and #health work we do as our chosen profession. Remember, on airplanes you put the oxygen mask on YOURSELF first and then help others. ❤️🔥 . . . . #venicebeach #venice #beachlife #pilatesbody #pilatesinstructor #mentalhealth #treatyoself #inspiration #goals #mindset #dontsufferinsilence #resetbutton #recharge #lifegoals #pilateslosangeles #personaltrainer #controlbalance #smallbusiness #girlboss #fitmom #clearyourmind

This holiday season, may we all feel love and compassion in our heart, for ourselves and for everyone we meet. In the spirit of love and connection with you all, I share just a few of the things on my “I believe” list in hopes of inspiring you to make your own list of beliefs.⁠ ⁠ I believe:⁠ ⁠ Love is stronger than fear or hate.⁠ We all are part of the Force/Source that allows the sun to rise each day.⁠ We can change our life by changing our thoughts.⁠ The body is designed with its’ own healing systems.⁠ Nature has the ability to uplift, inspire and heal us.⁠ Time spent in stillness connects me to the Truth of who I am.⁠ Being fully present and really listening to our loved ones is the most precious gift anyone can give or receive.⁠ When our faith is bigger than our fear the results can be truly awe-inspiring.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #krishaley #meltmethod #melttribe #pilatesstrong #livingfromtheinsideout #movebetternaturally #chronicpainrelief #painfreeliving #healingtouch #pilatesteacher #pilatesstrong #resleasestress #naturalpainrelief #restorebalance #losangelesfitness #losangelespilates #pilateslosangeles #fitness #localbusiness

And his classes perfectly blend therapeutic principals with challenging exercises. • When he’s not teaching private sessions, running payroll, supporting the other teachers, and generally doing anything else that needs doing around Samarasa, you can catch his group classes at 11 and 12 on Saturdays! • • • • #lovebroughtmehere #bodyfulloflight #samarasacenter #pilates #pilatesclass #pilateslovers #pilatesreformer #pilateseveryday #pilatesteacher #echopark #mendopilates #losangeles #layoga #echoparkpilates #lapilates #pilateslosangeles #smallbusinessowner #teachertuesday

This month

Bittersweet….exciting…sad…happy….memories old…now to new… This month is the 15 year anniversary of my studio here in Houston. My amazing and wonderful hubby way back then gave me his work bonus to buy some apparatus and he found me my first space! The space grew and all that passed through the doors become family, friends and yes, it was hard and so many lessons learned but, wouldn’t change one single  moment of it all. Now, it is my turn to be there for my hubby who is ready for his adventure in  Los Angeles! Yep! California here  we come! This amazing man  again found a space for me to continue my passion  of teaching clients, Teacher Training and Bridging  Programs and some exciting  new adventures with Weekend Retreats. This month  will be one of saying goodbye  to clients I have had for over  20 years..teachers I have grown with  or watched grow here in Houston.  I will share that with you  as I try to make it through these  goodbyes. I am going to miss  this space…these people..and YES  I will be putting on full waterproof  mascara all  month! As  one friend told me yesterday “Hil,  you have always listened to what the universe has said to you and followed it without questions. It is saying to you it is time” So, it  is time to gather up and start this new adventure! To all my Cali friends I am  so looking forward to this and to all my Houston and Texas  peep… There is a room with me always for you to come crash and play  Pilates !

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.” - Melody Beattie Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I hope you eat, drink, laugh and love today. If you are looking for a way to unwind after a full day of feasting, then I have the perfect DIY All-Natural Bubble Bath recipe below. Enjoy! DIY All-Natural Bubble Bath Aroma Bubble Bath • 8 oz grated soap or soap flakes * • 2 tbsp witch hazel • 1 1/2 cups sweet almond oil • 1 1/2 cups of filtered water * If you use soap, make sure you use an un-perfumed, pure soap. I suggest a Castille soap, which you can find at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. You can buy soap flakes here. DIRECTIONS 1. Put the water on to boil in a stainless saucepan and melt the soap flakes. 2. Place the almond oil and witch hazel in a blender and blend well. 3. Slowly add the soap mixture to the blender. This will make a large container of bubble bath. Decant it into an empty washed-out bubble bath or shampoo bottles. I used two bottles for mine so Lola and I had one each. You will need to shake well before each use. If you don’t intend to use it up within a week or so, refrigerate for up to 1 month. Relaxing Bath: I added the following essential oils to my bottle: 15 drops of Sandalwood, 10 drops of chamomile, 5 drops of vetiver Sleepy Time Bath: Lola added the following oils to her bath: 15 drops of chamomile, 10 drops of ylang-ylang. Romantic Rose: 15 geranium, 10 drops lavender, 10 drops of rose essential oil. You might want to add some real rose petals to your bath for this one! (Keep in mind that most really bubbly baths use SLS and other harsh chemicals to produce those insane bubbles. This won’t bubble as much, but will not harm/ dry out your skin or your health in the way that commercial bubble bath products do.) *You can find all your essential oils at Mountain Rose Herbs.* . . . #krishaley #meltmethod #melttribe #pilatesstrong #livingfromtheinsideout #movebetternaturally #chronicpainrelief #painfreeliving #healingtouch #pilatesteacher #pilatesstrong #resleasestress #naturalpainrelief #restorebalance #losangelesfitness #losangelespilates #pilateslosangeles #fitness #localbusiness

I hope your week has been restful and filled with joy and laughter with family and friends. Laughter is a contagious emotion that can bring people together and is good for your soul.

Taking time for your own self-care through Melt, meditation, movement, reading a magazine or even adult coloring is not selfish, nor is it a luxury. It is nourishment for our soul, a salve for the parts of us that need to be loved. As Thanksgiving nears, I hope you will take time to visit with family, but also relax. I hope to encourage you to make time for yourself amidst all the cooking and planning. You don’t need to do anything to deserve it and there isn’t some perfect time that will come along later. It’s right now; this is the perfect moment!⁠ ⁠ What self-care practice are you most thankful for this week?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #krishaley #meltmethod #melttribe #pilatesstrong #livingfromtheinsideout #movebetternaturally #chronicpainrelief #painfreeliving #healingtouch #pilatesteacher #pilatesstrong #resleasestress #naturalpainrelief #restorebalance #losangelesfitness #losangelespilates #pilateslosangeles #fitness #localbusiness

On this #fitnessfriday we are talkin' about flow! Flowing exercise to exercise is one of the key ingredients in our workouts. Less time spent in transition means we can pack more in and keep your heart rate ⬆️💓! This is an athletic flow Jessica developed that hits chest, glutes, core, back and triceps. By doing these exercises in this way, she's able to pack a lot in! She does 3 reps of each here, but if you've done it you know it's more like 8-10 (and feels like 20), so at the end you are perfectly fatigued and glistening! ✨😅 Air guns and dismount are optional, but highly encouraged! • • Springs: 1💙 • • Wearing: @carbon38 Takara leggings and @aloyoga tank • • #beasmith #athleticpilates #pilates #pilateslosangeles #pilatessantamonica #pilatesreformer #pilatestv #pilateslovers #pilatesbody #pilatesfit #pilatesteacher #pilatesstrong #pilatestime #pilateslife #pilatesinstructor #pilatesinspiration #pilatesstudio #pilateslove #pilatesformen #pilatestododia #lovepilates #lafitness #lafitnessgirl #santamonicafitness #fitnessmotivation #fitness #fitspo #fit

This time of year can prove challenging to stick to our normal routines and healthy habits (Hello Pumpkin Pie). Whether it is due to holiday parties, your kid’s activities, or just enjoying all the yummy comfort foods that come with fall (I admit to letting go of my routines during the holiday months.) But, if you focus on one thing at a time, those tasks that used to take all of your will power to see through will soon become a part of your daily to-do’s like brushing your teeth. To get the ball rolling, I’ll let Disney tell you the best approach. “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” - Walt Disney.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #krishaley #meltmethod #melttribe #pilatesstrong #livingfromtheinsideout #movebetternaturally #chronicpainrelief #painfreeliving #healingtouch #pilatesteacher #pilatesstrong #resleasestress #naturalpainrelief #restorebalance #losangelesfitness #losangelespilates #pilateslosangeles #fitness #localbusiness
