PHI Pilates has Bounce classes!
As quoted by NASA, this form of exercise on a mini trampoline is “the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man”. If you think jumping on a trampoline is child’s play, think again. This low impact cardio workout is easier on your joints than pavement pounding. Plus, it improves your balance, gets your heart rate up, strengthens your legs and bones, and burns calories. Trampolining reduces impact by 40 percent allowing you to work out harder and recover faster since your body is not getting as beat up as it would be doing impact on the ground. The use of fast twitch muscle fibers and the reduced impact make this a perfect exercise to combat the effects of muscle loss with aging. Not to mention that it is just plain FUN!!!
Free Introductory Classes in the downstairs studio
Please be sure to sign up to reserve your trampoline in the class schedule online. Park in the rear of the studio.

PHI Pilates Duckie
The PHI Pilates Duckie is a wonderful tool for teaching a client to find and maintain pelvic neutral. Just place the foam wedge under the coccyx and use it as a proprioceptive tool so that the client can feel when they are in pelvic neutral.
Holiday Wishes 2016
Happy New Year!!
As always I am sending out the annual New Year’s wish and a video clip to add to your exercise library. With this clip, I am introducing my new blog where I hope to share ideas with you all year long!
In this video clip I am sharing an exercise to assist in balancing force couples opposing latissimus dorsi to maintain good standing posture. I have had great success with this exercise in correcting muscle imbalance and teaching healthy movement patterns with my clients who attend with diagnosis of lumbar or cervical spinal stenosis, shoulder impingement, and lumbar disc herniation, and revealing postural problems involving hyperlordosis, sway back posture, rounded shoulders and hyperkyphosis.
I wish you a very happy 2016 and hope to see you here in the blog this year.
