Pilates is a mind-body method aiming to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing.

Pilates Exercises are done on a mat or using special equipment, such as the reformer, Tower with a system of pulleys and springs, handles, and straps providing resistance or support, depending on the client’s needs. Pilates was originally developed by Joseph Pilates who believed that mental and physical health were closely
connected. His method was influenced by gymnastics and Yoga.

The pilates method increases strength, mobility of the joints, improves posture, and improves back pain. The method stones and strengthens the core muscles while keeping them long and lean.

Yamuna Body Rolling

A multidimensional elongation of muscle fibers and connective tissues using softballs in order to move the body more dynamically, shoulder and neck, spine, Hamstring, abdominal, and sideline routines with the use of small softballs help release pain and tension from the joints and entire body while massaging and increasing blood flow to the joints, muscles, and connective tissues.

Yamuna Body Rolling can be applied to the functional evaluation and therapeutic uses; therefore, it could provide many benefits in the treatment of different conditions in the medical field. Often I use the Yamuna Body Rolling technique together with other methods to help increase range of motion while awakening weak areas in the body.



The Gyrotonic® is an original movement method that addresses the entire body by opening energy pathways, stimulating the entire nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength and agility of the spine, pelvic and entire body. The Gyrotonic® method may correct dysfunctional patterns of the muscular and skeletal systems while promoting energy flow throughout the body. This is good news for athletes, those with chronic pain, and those going through post-injury rehabilitation.

Gyrotonic®  workouts also benefit those dealing with the aches and pains caused by the stressful, repetitive movements we do every day.
