Pilates is the fountain of youth.
No, that’s not a quote by Joseph Pilates, the originator of this popular form of exercise, but rather a comment from a longtime client. That’s the magic of Pilates exercise … it makes you feel young. Along with all its other benefits – increased joint mobility, increased core strength, better muscle tone, improved posture, better balance – Pilates makes you feel strong and capable of moving without pain. I’ve been teaching Pilates on Bowen Island since 2002 and have to tell you I’ve helped hundreds of people feel better within three to four classes.
This Saturday, Nov. 12, come and see for yourself Bowen’s first Pilates/barre studio at the Fawn Gill Fitness open house between 9 a.m. and noon.
It’ll start with a barre workout from 9 to 10 a.m., free with a donation to the food bank. Besides teaching Pilates and personal training, I teach the hottest workout on the market right now, barre! It’s a ballet-based workout that focuses on isolated movements that tone every single muscle in your body. We use small weights and high repetitions but don’t worry … you do not have to wear a tutu! It’s a highly addictive and effective workout.
Then from 10 a.m. to noon, come see my new beautiful studio, try out the Pilates equipment, meet me (if you haven’t already), ask questions and partake in some yummy food and beverages and enter to win some cool door prizes! It all takes place at the Fawn Gill Fitness studio, located on the lower level of Artisan Square beside the vet.
Teaching others the importance of living a healthy and balanced life has always been a passion of mine. Having the studio gives me the opportunity to focus 100 per cent on providing my clients with the best classes and training available.
