A welcome blast of late February and early March snow has left our valley looking a lot more like winter than it did a month ago!
The many inches of snow that fell over the past days and weeks has re-enthused skiers and others who pursue outdoor winter recreation. Along with engaging in our favorite sports, come the usual strains, sprains, muscle fatigue and injuries. If you find yourself struggling a bit to maintain a good balance between sports and self-care, we can help you to bring your body and mind back to center, balancing both strength and flexibility. Read on to discover all of the many ways in which we here at The Pilates Place can help.
How Do You Pick the Right Pilates Studio?
The results of the Pilates in America study that was conducted last year, indicated that the vast majority of clients rate “quality of instruction” as the most important factor when choosing a Pilates studio. That seems realistic. We all want to work with instructors that are knowledgeable and who are good teachers. At the Pilates Place, you can be confident that your Instructor is a highly skilled Teacher, respected by students and other teachers alike. Below is the link to the study compiled in 2016. Responses were drawn from current and lapsed Pilates students, Pilates Instructors and Studio Owners.
Come join us and be amazed to learn how your body works! The 3rd workshop in our Winter Franklin Method® Series happens this Saturday, March 10 from 9:30am-12:00pm. The cost is just $95 and payment can be made the day of the workshop. Our topic is "The Sturdy and Supple Spine", and this is the first time this material has been offered in Jackson. If you or anyone you know would benefit by learning more about their spine, as well as how to keep it sturdy, supple and healthy, please plan to join Jill Reich as she takes us through the anatomy and kinesiology of our spines.
Is your spine flourishing? Is it adaptable? How do you want your spine to feel? Our focus for this workshop will be the thoracic and lumbar spine as we will save the cervical spine for another day. Although part of the same column of bone these two sections of the spine are quite different. Come learn the difference and start the journey to embodying how the different parts contribute to a healthy whole. We will look at some anatomy and apply that knowledge to experience through movement exploration. Pilates is so much about the spine we will also look at some specific Pilates exercises and apply our embodiments to them.
"Our Spines are our natural force absorbers as we move, [not the] rigid straight columns as sometimes imagined. Discover that an understanding of spinal evolution leads to a fresh approach in movement and exercise for the spine. Newly embodied understanding will allow for all daily movement and exercise to benefit spinal health!" - Eric Franklin

As many of you early morning Pilates devotees are aware, we have some bittersweet news to share about Tina Roberts. A dream she has held in her heart for a very long time is becoming reality. Tina has been accepted to PT school in New Hampshire! Please join us in congratulating her on this achievement! Sadly it means she will be leaving Jackson, and The Pilates Place at the end of May. Her goal is to return to her mountain home once she's completed her schooling. In the meantime we are exploring many options so that the 7am aficionados can continue their early morning routines!
Some of you remember our Instructor Marisol Sullivan (Exum Guide par excellence) who has been pursuing academic studies in Utah. Marisol has also achieved her dream of being accepted into PT school at University of Utah. Congratulations and good luck from all of us here to Marisol. Pilates Instructors make excellent Physical Therapists and so many rehab patients will benefit by working with both Marisol and Tina when they complete their studies!
BEMER is currently the most developed form of application of electromagnetic fields that is based on conventional medical theory and that has scientifically proven effects. The unique impulse of BEMER is patent-protected and is characterized by its wide frequency system in comparison with all other types of applied impulses.
The electromagnetic field serves only as a carrier substance and transmitter for the BEMER signal, which is responsible for the effects within the body.
The uniqueness of BEMER lies in its signal and its configuration. The signal leads to scientifically grounded stimulation of the smallest vessels supporting the circulatory system as a whole.
