“I wish I could zap you with how good I feel after I go to Pilates! You would understand why I love it and encourage you to go!” Jean Hill
“Finally a workout I can look forward to. But is it really a workout?! I don’t even break a sweat! I had noticeable results in flexibility and posture after only a few classes.” Collette Ashley
“Pilates is a workout but it’s not exhausting. I usually feel relaxed and less stressed after class. It involves stretching, balancing and I have noticed my posture has been better, others have notice too. My shoulders aren’t scrunched up underneath my ears either, they’re more relaxed. Ashley is an awesome instructor that loves what she does & helping people. Each person in the class is different not only in age, shape and size but also in levels of flexibility and fitness. Exercises are well explained & shown. She can modify the exercise for everyone’s need, as a beginner or to make it more difficult, your choice. It’s for anyone.” Jennifer Fopiano
We love using the TYE4 apparatus to provide assistance to overstressed areas like neck and hip flexors. We also use it to add resistance through full range of motion to add intensity.
JUST LAUNCHED… the latest online Pilates training course from Pilates PhysicalMind Institute!

It can look something like this… brush teeth… drink coffee//my go-to →Advocare Spark//or whatever makes you nice to people … TYE4 … shower … This is a PERFECT way to start your day… stretched, moving and the proper posture muscles activated. AND BONUS:: you DO get a workout!!! This tones the back, abs, arms AND legs! #WIN
I love this new TYE4®! Here are a few clips of me playing around in it as I design a new class sequence. TYE4 allows us to stretch deeper, push further and really challenge the stabilizing muscles. I love it!

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.

↓ THE CHALLENGE ↓
Can you take a GINGER SHOT and keep a straight face like my little man Iver?
Now here’s a Juicy Tip from Juice Therapy •••
For a warm, comforting, nutritious drink, put a few slices of lemon and ginger along with a teaspoon of manuka honey into hot water.
Because ginger helps to tame nausea, it is beneficial for people undergoing chemotherapy and its associated nausea as well as for pregnancy and its associated morning sickness.
Ginger has been referred to as “the king of anti-inflammatory foods” and is incredibly useful for any inflammatory problems in the body from rheumatoid arthritis to easing muscle pain after strenuous activity and exercise. The reason it is such a powerful anti-inflamatory is because it contains compounds or essential oils called gingerols that help to interrupt the inflammation process. Essentially they interfere with an enzyme called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) that is involved in switching on inflammation and instigating pain. When we experience a cold, we feel all bunged up with mucus, although actually most of that feeling actually comes from inflammation of the of the mucous membrane in the nose and sinuses. Most conditions and pain in the body are associated with inflammation including all muscle pain, arthritis and even skin conditions. … read more here
