Pilates with Jungle
HEALTH ✖️ BEAUTY ✖️ BODY
Pilates is probably the most misunderstood area of fitness. With elements of dance, yoga and stretching combined with core strengthening, Pilates is a mind-body exercise. Developed for injured ballerinas it is now the core for many studios, boutique fitness venues and and personal training methods. Pilates has changed my life ever since i started the practice at 19. An ex dancer and full time model I needed a way to lean out my over developed muscles but still be toned. Natural of athletic build, a lot of congenital excericises bulked me, making working out a struggle. Becoming a fitness professonial at 26, the LaGree method was my first introduction to the world of personal training. Loving the high intensity and Pilates inspired moves, I still struggled to maintain a lean look on LaGree alone. An avid runner I knew the cardio short term would achieve my body goals, but over time the jarring movements would deteriorate my hips and knees. Attending various classes (boxing, yoga, circuit, cycling) I was able to combine my favorite excericises and being them to my clients. Continuing my fitness education journey with mat and reformer Pilates, I realized that a mix of cardio, calesthics, stretching and Pilates was the most effective. I believe that our bodies are more than capable of performing without any machines, so resistance bands, light weights and Pilates rings are the only accessories I use. Focusing on form and technique my dance background resurfaces as I make sure my clients execute each excercise properly to avoid injury. The world of Pilates is all inclusive and is ideal for any age and fitness background. It’s a perfect substitution for recovery and low impact enough for pre and post natal clients.
