Description

Reclaim your mind and invigorate your body. Just Breathe introduces Pilates to beginners and intermediate practitioners to a refreshing workout that surpasses the noise and restores the centre. Because Pilates is a system that works from the inside out, in just 30 minutes, you will feel stronger, longer and completely revived. 

Reclaim your body and mind

  • Learn step-by-step techniques 
  • Engage the core with breath
  • Energize the entire body

Simple guidance that works

Since Pilates centres on breath, that is our focus. Cut out the noise and direct your effort. 

After one session, you will feel moved and after a few sessions, you will be transformed. 

Content and Overview

This class starts with simple breathing and core exercises then builds towards more-involved options. Novice versions are always offered. Skills and techniques are progressively taught. Please follow from the beginning and do not push through pain.

Pilates was designed to be done with precision and control. So avoid rushing. Build your awareness. Move with what “feels right”. 

We will go through twelve exercises based on the classical repertoire on the mat plus variations and modifications with other preparatory exercises. Enjoy a sequence that flows.

And when in doubt, just breathe!

    Philosophy is my passion. Pilates is my tool. Having been a teacher and mentor for 15 years, owning and operating a Pilates studio on the west coast of Canada for 7, I have seized the wonder and unraveled the success. Upon selling my business, I traveled and taught Pilates in the heart of Paris for 2 years. I now embark on a digital lifestyle, creating new paths and help others along the way.
