It was such an honor to participate in the Rutherford Heart Walk and represent St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital Wellness Center this year! I led the warm-up for the group and they were all so awesome, energetic and so happy to be there!!! We had beautiful weather and it was just a great day to be active for a great cause.
The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event for raising funds to save lives from this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke. Designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living, the Heart Walk creates an environment that’s fun and rewarding for the entire family. ♥heartwalk.org
A few weeks ago we filmed the TYE4® FUSION class for the PhysicalMind Institute Certification Program. I earned my certification in NYC 2 years ago —» more on that here «— and now PMI is creating online training so many more people can add this class to their schedule! FUSION is a fun class that hits the whole body and provides a challenging, safe and effective workout.
2016 is going to be an exciting year for TYE4@ wearable resistance system… New classes are popping up all over the world in a variety of locations – from YMCA facilities to elite Dance and Pilates studios to Crossfit gyms. The New York City Ballet trains in TYE4 and this past season, we had a few of the Washington Wizard NBA basketball players using TYE4 to assist with physical therapy and to keep themselves stretched and warm on the sidelines during games. This is so exciting and there is much more to come! Many more instructors are working towards their TYE4 certifications and many people will see life changing benefits from using TYE4! Interested in becoming a TYE4 coach or instructor, visit TheMethod Pilates.com for more info.
It’s so fun to see how diverse this training system is. More people are using TYE4 at home to help them loose weight, build strength, gain flexibility, improve posture, develop better balance & coordination and also rehab their body (specifically ankles, knees and shoulders). It can be worn while doing your regular workout or put it on and clean your house!! Seriously, this is happening!!! Busy moms are now wearing TYE4 while they clean and cook… and they are seeing results!!! When you have it on, the muscles that line and support your spine are engaged, along with your abdominals!!!! It also activates the stabilizer muscles around your ankles, knees, and hips so they are support and strengthened. It’s easy and it’s smart!
Look for the NEW Bone Up™ TYE4 classes coming to the Nashville area in 2016!
Bone Up is a safe and beneficial class designed specifically to those individuals with Osteoporosis, Osteopina, or any condition which limits spinal flexion in exercise.
This class focuses on improving balance, building bone mass, and increasing overall strength, flexibility and endurance with an emphasis on body alignment to ensure safety, regardless of your ability level. read more… Riverbrook Regional YMCA

“If Joseph Pilates were alive today, he would applaud the innovation we have brought to his original exercises. As he created the original movements as a response to the needs of a population almost a century ago, we at the Institute have developed a coherent, no nonsense program for addressing the needs of the 21st century client.” TheMethod Pilates
Last July I did an interview with Carli from Real Into on Fitness Transformations. It was fun to look back at what got me focused and inspired on this journey, why I chose Pilates and how I’ve integrated my passion for health into my family. Take a few minutes and head on over to her blog to read the FULL INTERVIEW.
Since doing this interview, a lot has happened with Tye4! I’ve been to NYC 2 times – once for the training and then back again for a Pilates Style Photo Shoot 🙂 – look for it in March! I’ve also started teaching Tye4 classes and leading workshop to train the trainers. I had an interview on Channel 5 Talk of the Town on Tye4 classes and will begin training athletes with the Tye4 later this month. This is an exciting season! AND we’ve started planning for our next HEALH & FITNESS BEACH VACATION! We will be using Tye4 AND you will take it home with you to continue using. Plus, you will be coached in the kitchen by Holistic Chef Laura Lea and be encouraged and educated on feeding yourself and your family better in the busyness of life. It’s pretty fantastic and we have room for you!
