How long have you been studying Pilates?

Joan: 19 years

What brought you to Pilates? 
Joan:  "I had been swimming and walking for exercise but I felt I needed to have more core strength which is why I looked to Pilates."

Tendon Stretch
How has Pilates helped you?

Joan:  "Pilates has definitely improved my strength!!  We go to the "sea Shore" in the summer and I am the one to load and unload the car with very heavy packages.  When I go to the market, I ask the packers to make my grocery bags heavy...the less bags the more to my liking.  I have a great deal of energy.  I definitely feel it is from doing Pilates.  I also love the camraderie I have experienced from the trainers June Hines, June Hudson, Greg Elwell, Sharon Michels, Katy Dawley and all.  Meeting the other clients that come to June Hines Pilates has also made my life richer and more meaningful.  Pilates has enriched my life more than I can put into words!
We enjoyed having guest Instructor Jennifer Cybulski.  Here are some pictures of her visit and one of the classes she taught in our Jenkintown studio.  Jennifer will be back and we will let you know when you can take advantage of a lesson or class with her.

Exercise of the Month

Ladder Barrel Stretch
      June Hines and Joan Shore

This stretch is like a runner's stretch,  lengthening out the hips, calves, and
Achilles tendon.  After lunging forward, the exercise moves to a rounded back position to elongate the spine in a high curve and stretch the hamstrings.  This is all done while keeping the body and frame aligned and moving from position to position with control.  The dimensions of the Ladder Barrel are wonderful for this stretch, but it can be performed in a variety of places including at a kitchen chair.  Joan Shore, our client of the month, performs this stretch in the adjacent photos.
Sharon Michels

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.
