CLIENT REVIEW • “My mother in law asked me if I would be interested in taking reformer pilates. So naturally I googled it, before I could answer, she said I think you would love it. She was absolutely right!!! I could not even imagine myself missing a class. I love that the class settings are small between 3-6 people a class. The owners are super great and so helpful in guiding me. I feel like I’m learning so much about my body and how much breathing has to do with exercise. Ara has been a haven for me, Pilates is my happy place. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. I’ve made so many friends here. I’ve loved every class I’ve taken from strength to restorative.” - Kristina R. • Photo: @ruthmariephotography

As an instructor, I firmly believe it is important to listen and observe what the body is trying to tell you. If you can’t see what is completely going on, be open to feel what the tissues are trying to tell you. Understandably so, every client is different with a different journey, different lifestyle, and a house of emotions that react to situations differently than the next person. So, understandably so, your approach can not all be the same for each person, it has to be specifically tailored and artfully designed to guide the body to where it needs to be, wherever that place may be. • I have been reluctant to share ‘teacher tips’ because it may not be applicable to everyone. Additionally, I also fully am aware that I still have so much to learn and that does contribute to my apprehension to step out more publicly as an educator. It’s quite conflicting because when I’m with a client, my self judgement and ego was left at the door and I just let the body guide me to where we need to go; I’m completely open to the story it has to share with me. It’s after I leave the studio is when the flood of self deprecation comes in and I am constantly on the journey to expand my knowledge to be adequately equipped to help my clients the best way I possibly can. • What I can say is this: do not be reluctant to spend time with the basics and being comprehensive with the work and what that may be for that individual person you’re working with. Do not shy away from being ‘boring’ or feel as if you have to do fancy choreography to retain a clientele. At the end of the day, it’s about the person in front of you, and what tools you have to help them reach their goals and live their best lives. Even if that means you do the same routine every single session till they get it down. • Tomorrow I will be doing my very first mini workshop on Instagram live about exploring how to feel Your Abs, but not just from your frontal plane. We will discuss recruitment of the pelvic diaphragm, imagery to help the nervous system make this connection, and exercises that anyone can practice at home. See you tomorrow at 3:30pm PST. • Photo: @ruthmariephotography

Get your stretch on! I was reminded today how much I love this stretch. I can’t believe that I haven’t done it in quite a while. Added a nice little shoulder work at the end. #pilates #PilatesReformer #ProgressivePilates #Stretch #PalmSpringsPilates #pilatespalmsprings #pilatesbody

I love the chair. I have got some more work to do on the lift up at the end. With my spine injury, I am still overusing my low back a bit too much however, I am up for the challenge. I’m grateful even with three disc herniation‘s, that I am able to do extension exercises pain-free. #abs #pilatesbody #stretch #fitmen #fitness #PilatesPalmSprings #PalmSpringsPilates #PalmSprings #Pilates #spineextension

#repost @seanbergarapilates ・・・ Give these three great moves a try and let me know how it works. I used two red springs which challenged my standing hip. The last move requires you to hold the foot bar under hand and use it to stretch deep. #abs #pilatesbody #stretch #fitmen #fitness #PilatesPalmSprings #PalmSpringsPilates #PalmSprings #Flexibility #pilatesreformer

#Repost @seanbergarapilates ・・・ There are so many reasons why I love the @fuseladder For one, the back support is amazing and the dual pull- up bars are awesome I used the bar closest to the wall and it allowed me to feel 100% supported in both my shoulders and my spine. I have taken leg raises out of my practice because of my spine injury. I am so happy to have the @fuseladder in my life. This set-up, using the softball at my sacrum and the arm position on the back pull-up bar, made this a possibility for my body. • • Want to learn how to combine limitless options of movement on the reformer?
