Frequently Asked Questions
Pilates is powerful work, especially when taught by an artful instructor. Yoga also is a wonderful way to work your core and deepen your flexibility. Core Transformation takes elements from both of these and then adds in Callanetics- a system of deep muscle contraction and deep body awareness. Core Transformation is continually evolving and will teach you things that you can apply all day, every day like Core Walking, breathwork, and restorative movement strategies that will keep your body out of pain and feeling lithe, graceful and supple.
Bring water, wear comfy yoga-style clothes and be ready to move about barefoot. Prepare, above all, to show up. For it is in choosing and committing to a new way of being that we are transformed.
The only fitness level that I would caution against joining this class is someone who is unable to get up off of the ground unassisted. We spend a lot of time getting into a lot of different movements. No matter where you are, you can begin to get your ability to move freely back again. Your instructor will help you modify whenever something seems temporarily out of reach or beyond your body’s ability.
You will feel a sense of soreness as your muscles awaken. One hour of the deep muscle contraction work that we do is equivalent to 7 hours in the gym doing a normal gym routine. This soreness is not like the tearing down that you experience from lifting weights. It is, instead, an opening, a possibility, a lengthening and brings hope. It is hard work, but , oh, the body loves it. Within 6-8 sessions, clients are experiencing a release of chronic stiffness and fatigue. They are gaining strength, flexibility, grace and control. What will your experience be?
Adding a Core Alignment Therapy session to this work will only further deepen your results by releasing stuck holding patterns and creating space in the spine, hips and shoulders for increased range of motion.
