How Your Mind Can Improve Your Physical Strength

People are always telling you to believe in yourself. Fake it till you make it.

It's a nice thought, but you've never taken it very seriously.

It's not like it's some scientifically-proven performance enhancer. I mean, R. Kelly believes he can fly, but he can't actually do it.

However, there is some truth to the idea that our minds control our bodies. A small study recently published in the Journal of Neurophysiology found that muscle strength has little to do with the actual mass of our muscles — it's based more on brain activity. In other words, if we imagine ourselves working out, we'll actually get stronger.

Get Back On Track After Mardi Gras

Our Mat Essentials I class is a great way for the novice student to learn the traditional Pilates Matwork exercises and order. Students will learn the basic work on their very first lesson, and proceed very quickly over the next five weeks to the intermediate repetoire.


People are already holding their spots for the fall! We still have a few spots left. Let us know if you think you're ready for the challenge. Tues/Thurs @ 6:45pm.

Interested in Pilates as a Career? 

If you are interested in becoming a certified Pilates Instructor, we'd love to talk to you! We think the traditional Pilates method is amazing and we love sharing our knowledge with others. We won't lie, teacher training is a pretty grueling process. But if you truly love pilates, it is so rewarding that you will not regret it.

 
Our next Basic Seminar is in March 2015. But you've got a lot to do if you want to start at that time! There's a lot of training you have to do to pass the initial assessment! And a lot on info you need to know to make it through the program.

We periodically host an Open House where you can talk to instructors and get all the info you need about the certification program and it's requirements, as well as the prerequisites for admittance. If you'd like a brief outline of our training program, click

Our next Open House is December 12th @ 5:30pm. Space limited! Be sure to contact us by phone or email to reserve your spot. We'll have an information packet ready for you! Complimentary mat class at 5:30pm, followed by a brief informational chat with cocktails and small bites!
