Hi I'm Julie!
I have been teaching Pilates for 17 years, and absolutely love what I do! As a former dancer, I love the way Pilates makes me feel and helps me with my posture and body awareness, so that I can continue moving and dancing and doing all the other things I love.
I have designed this course to give you a gentle introduction to Pilates that will allow you to do a little bit of movement everyday. I want you to feel amazing at the end of the week, not tired or sore. I want you to feel motivated and inspired to go through all of the lessons week after week until your body begins to crave that feeling of moving well everyday.
You will get an introductory lesson to watch once on the 5 Basic Principles of the Stott Pilates technique.
After that, there is a Daily Warm Up to be done as a workout on its own when you are short on time, or to combine with one of the 6 other workouts below.
The 6 workouts include:
The goal to do at least one workout or segment a day. You have lifetime access to the course and can continue to practice and repeat these workouts on your own, to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Join me on this wellness journey and show your body how much you care about it!
Who this course is for:
- Beginners to Pilates of all ages.
- Seniors looking to add more movement and activity to their weekly routine.
- Post injury rehabilitation for any age.
- Anyone working through some injuries that needs a low impact, and safe workout, with easy to follow instruction
