EMBODi Pilates

Pilates is more than just a workout. Any person who’s been doing it for at least a couple of months knows that Pilates doesn’t only support and strengthen your body but it also clears your mind and gives you energy and inner serenity.

 

The most amazing part happens when students start seeing changes not only in their bodies but also in their minds, in their emotions and in their lives altogether. 

Pilates can suit everybody from elite athletes to people with limited mobility and people with low fitness levels. 

Its not what you do once in a while, Its what you do day in, day out that makes the difference.

At ENERGYBODi we are not about making sure you get your once/twice or four times a week fitness class only!  What are you doing with your body the rest of the time? 

We are about embodied learning,  so with every move you are creating healthier movement patterns, ones that make you stronger, ones that are easier, more efficient, waste less , gain more. And all this happens with out to much effort, how? Because we are all about making it fun, enjoyable, easy and we develop curiosity and appreciation for your body!

  Our aim is to educate and self empower, so you feel better, feel good, feel fantastic.  Most people have no idea how good their bodies can feel! And its not to late!  We have a wide age range from 20 to 80 years in class.  

EMBODi Pilates is a term used to incorporate  30 years of Heathers teaching experience and is unique and keeping stride with leading movement and somatic teachers throughout the world. 

'I've just finished my first Pilates course at ENERGYBODi, and I can hardly wait to carry on. I've been practicing Ashtanga yoga for years, but was struggling with an injury/poor posture in my shoulders. A head/whiplash injury several months ago worsened my neck and shoulder problems, and brought me to Pilates to try and take a more active role in my recovery. My pain was much improved after the very first session. My body feels different in general and I have learned some simple techniques I can continue to practice every day to keep my body relaxed and pain free. I have also been really aware of how rested and rejuvenated I feel after classes. I love the self massage and mindfulness techniques you include and the music has been really excellent. This has been so much more than just a physical movement class for me, you have really nurtured my whole self with the lovely safe space you hold and the care you show.

 

 'Heather, you are such an attentive, skillful teacher. Your dedication and passion shines from you, and I am very grateful for your wonderful work! Thank you,'
