"Contrology is the complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit. "
-Joseph H. Pilates

July 4th we celebrate the birthday of our country and the freedom of our nation.  With Pilates we work to free up our extremities and strengthen our Powerhouse/core.  We celebrate this great work that Romana Kryzanoswka passed on to our team of teachers directly from Joseph Pilates.  On Saturday June 30th we remember Romana's birthday.  

Sharon Michels will be repeating her presentation of "Breathing" to be held this time in Jenkintown on June 16th from 1-3p.m.  The fee is $25 and there will be light refreshments served.  Sign up now so you won't miss.

How long have you been studying Pilates?

Gerry:   I became interested in Pilates after watching the infomercials on television by Mari Winsor. It looked like a reasonable thing to I began taking lessons in 2009 when I was in my 50's. Later, I learned of June Hines and her connections to Romana Kryzanowska, so I switched to her studio in Rydal in the winter of 2014. 

What brought you to Pilates? 
Gerry:  I was getting stiff and losing my agility.

How has Pilates helped you?


My overall sense of wellbeing and health have improved. My flexibility and agility are markedly improved, and my sense of balance is what it was decades ago. I have much more to learn, but I am confident that I will continue to make progress with the help of June and her team.

Exercise of the Month

Rolling Like a Ball
Roll-like a Ball 1
June Hines

What a wonderful massage for the spine this exercise is.  After balancing in a ball like shape with feet off the mat, the powerhouse sends the body off balance and returns the body back to the balance while massaging the spine with one's own body weight.

Nancy Ostroff with Sharon
Breathing is essential to life! It is the foundation of our system and retraining our respiration helps strengthen the core and connect to the pelvic floor.  Breathing also decreases neck pain and increases range of motion in the neck and shoulders as well.  The strongest of core muscles could still be misfiring.  Breathing re-education promotes good breathing patterns and significantly improves the posture.
