“I would like to thank Jane for her EXCEPTIONAL teaching! Your classes have truly changed my life for the better, Looking after and improving my mental health continues (and will always be) important to me.“
Stress can make such a difference to our mental and physical well being, it can lead to high blood pressure, depression and anxiety, and these conditions then have an effect on our physical being, such as leading to stomach cramps, asthma, headaches, all of which affect our ability to live the life we want to live. Getting the body moving can reduce the feeling of stress as it releases endorphins often referred to as ’happy hormones’ which make us feel good. Either getting your body moving with a group of friends or on your own, it can make life feel good.
Moving the body will lift your spirit, expand creativity, it can help with sleep, clear the mind, as well as increasing fitness levels and keep the body strong and mobile. The amount of movement and how active you wish to be, is different for everyone, but what is the same is the increased vitality, looking at life differently and seeing all its potential and possibilities. It can make us visualise our dreams and enrich our experiences. As a Pilates teacher I have been fortunate to see and share experiences with many women and men who started getting their bodies moving with me and although they started because of a single problem eg, lower back pain, they continue to progress and their aims aren’t only about being pain free, but they are now doing more with their lives, as they have made friends, gained confidence and have greater self-esteem.
“I’m 72 Jane and still able to race my grandchildren around the garden and beat them … I want to continue to do this for as long as I possibly can, and its all down to you.”
As Joseph Pilates originally called his system of exercises Contrology, he believed that getting your body moving and using his exercises regularly and consistently, would enable a “return to life”.
I am grateful that in my role as a Pilates Coach, I have enabled people to blossom and continue to live the life they want to live.
