Mondful Pilates with Sharon Allen

A Word from Sharon Allen -
Even though Pilates has recently made it's way on the American exercise scene like a new pop star, the teachings of Joseph Pilates have actually been around for decades. Coming from a ballet background I know that dancers have gravitated towards Pilates for years in injury recovery, strength, core and balance training. Pilates studios are increasing in our country daily. I believe that this frenzy can lead individuals to lose the true value of what this training really means to the mind and body. Perfecting the Pilates technique takes time, patience and mental discipline. It is important to me that the full concept of body alignment and strength be achieved slowly and accurately as opposed to quickly and misguidedly. Exercising should not result in pain and injury to our bodies. Pilates exercise can help you to feel stronger and better about yourself physically and mentally. Anyone dedicating themselves to learning Pilates can benefit if given the right guidance and nurturing.

Pilates Floor Mat
This class uses classic pilates floor exercises combined with beneficial stretches. Classes are tailored to the individual. Finish your workout feeling strong and empowered. All levels welcome. Extra mats are provided, but it is reccommended that students bring their own mats.

Pilates Mat with Props
Imagine a soft, subtle warm-up followed by rigorous classic pilates exercises including foam rollers, exercise balls and thera-bands. Students will be guided through gentle dancer-like imagery for stretching and relaxation. Leave the room feeling rejuvinated for your day. All levels welcome. Extra mats and props provided, but is reccommended that students bring their own mats.

Spine Corrector
The Pilates Spine Corrector is a small piece of equipment employed for strengthening the core and stretching the spine and shoulders in a safe, stabilized, supported way. It adds variety and challenge to a Pilates mat routine whether one is a novice or expert. It is important that students new to the spine corrector know how to work on this apparatus before joining a group setting. Two private sessions are required before joining a class.

Private Sessions
Discover the true beauty of Pilates core training. Private sessions using a combination of Pilates Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Spine Corrector. Clients will receive one-on-one training with Sharon Allen, certified Pilates instructor and Assistant Director of Northwest Florida Ballet. Give yourself the chance to experience personal training in a private, challenging, nuturing way. It's truly the secret to better health, flexibility, core strength and confidence.
