P3Pilates and PBForme working together

Jennie and I have decided to collaborate and do something a bit different – a Spinning/Pilates class or Spilates or Spinates but definitely not Pie and Lattes!! We are very excited to bring this new class to the valley, we both feel that while we offer very different aspects of exercise there is no reason why we can’t combine our knowledge of movement and give you a little extra.

What to expect…..Jennie will push you hard on the bike for 30 minutes and then I will push you hard in a totally different way for another 30! At the end of the class you will have had an all round work out for both your body and mind.

Getting ready for the winter

This winter stay healthy using the Pilates method as a natural preventative measure to keep yourself warm inside and out, and keep your immune system boosted.

Pilates has sound science-based effects on the internal systems as much as it does the musculoskeletal system. Yes, it will make us look good – tighten abs, lengthen the spine, improve posture. But the unseen, deep and health providing effects of doing Pilates are immeasurable.

Pilates exercises, while including the major muscle groups of the whole body, focus the work of the intrinsic muscles of the body which sit deep within joints and internal structures. Being able to work into these deep regions means that we will create much deeper circulatory responses and movement of fluids like lymph that clean out our bodies of toxins. It also offers us a direct stimulatory effect on internal organs, and thereby stimulation of the functions and chemical responses of systems such as the respiratory, digestive and endocrine systems, which have a direct effect on our immunity and wellbeing.

Practicing Pilates can also help you to stay injury free so that you can enjoy a long winter season whether it be on the slopes of off.

Looking forward to seeing you in the studio.
