Mindful Movements To Offer Two Foam Roller Workshops In August

With such a large influx of new clientele, we have had requests for some of our previously offered roller workshops. So in August, we will be offering a few ROLL & RELEASE workshops. The first workshop will be an introduction to the PROPER use of the roller and will cover some general uses for the entire body. In the second workshop, we will focus on the LOWER BODY, zeroing in on problem areas such as the deep hip and glute musculature, tight hamstrings and quadriceps, release in the IT band, and issues with the shins and calves.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have NOT attended a Roll & Release workshop with us before, you MUST attend the first workshop beginning at 10:45am before attending any other roller workshops. We do not suggest taking both workshops in one day, as it can have adverse effects on the connective tissues. We will offer more workshops later this year.

Saturday August 16th

Introduction to Roll & Release – 10:45am-1:00pm
Roll & Release – LOWER BODY – 1:15-3:30pm

light healthy snacks and beverages will be provided

Mindful Movements to Introduce BarreAMPED November 17

On November 17 Mindful Movements will launch an exciting new program called BarreAmped.

BarreAmped is an intensive body shaping experience designed to produce reliable results, no matter the client. The method is influenced by classical and modern dance (though it is not a dance class) and utilizes a barre to achieve optimal positioning. Insights from Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching also balance the method’s unique approach.

The precision-oriented technique focuses mainly on small, isolated movements within deeply held and challenging postures. BarreAmped is proven to increase metabolism, burn fat, and lengthen tight muscles. With commitment to the technique, you get recognizable results exactly where you want them.

Created by international fitness celebrity and former Lotte Berk Method instructor Suzanne Bowen, BarreAmped is the result of more than 10 years of physiological study and client observations by one of America’s top fitness talents. Precise form is essential to achieving optimal results in BarreAmped; thus, BarreAmped instructors are highly trained to correct and refine your positioning during each workout.

New Small Group Training TRX®

Beginning the week of September 30 we will offer a new CoRe TRX small group training program.  The class will be offered in a small group environment to ensure efficiency, effectiveness, and results!  Correct imbalances, improve your posture, and experience strength gains.  Take your body to the next level with this class.

Class times offered:  Tuesdays from 9:30-10:30 and 10:30-11:30; Wednesdays from 10:30-11:30 and 11:30-12:30; Thursdays from 9:30-10:30; and Fridays from 10:30-11:30 and 11:30-12:30.

You can choose to attend twice per week for $300.00 for the six week period or you can attend once per week for $150.00.  Pre-registration for class day and time is required.

Please call the studio at 260-710-7709 to register for your class.

Getting in Shape for the New Year

For those who have made New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and strengthen their bodies, Rebecca Bell of Mindful Movements Pilates believes she has the right method of exercise.

“Pilates produces long, lean muscles that work more efficiently where as weight lifting builds muscle bulk,” said Bell. “This allows you to burn calories more efficiently. It can improve posture, which makes you appear taller and thinner. Pilates allows you to take the weight off in a way that you can keep it off.”

Pilates is a system of exercises developed by a German physical-culturist Joseph Pilates in 1883. His exercises are based on the relationship between mental and physical health and the use of special exercise equipment.

Still used today, the Pilates reformer is a series of ropes, pulleys, and straps designed to finely tune exercise resistance allowing the exerciser to work on targeted areas while improving strength and flexibility. Breathing techniques are added to the regiment to reduce stress.

“The reformer helps develop the right muscle,” said Bell. “A lot of athletes, Hollywood people, and golfers use it for balance and long lean muscle creation.”

A fitness circle is another exercise device that provides torso stability and helps tone specific muscle. Mat exercises are also part of the Pilates routine.

Bell explained that there is minimal investment in the Pilates exercise routine.

“We work out barefoot. You don’t need $100 shoes or special clothes to do Pilates. It’s great for people who are de-conditioned and want to be stronger. Plus there is the added selling point of the privacy factor. The client and I work together as a team. It’s a learning process. I learn about the client’s body and the client learns how to take care of his or her body.

“Clients can feel more confident — just feel better in their own skin. I focus on functional alignment, emphasizing the muscles you use for running, walking, lifting; it’s designed to improve the day to day way your body functions. I am very concerned about the health of people in our state. I want to create awareness of exercise and health; it’s important.”
