ABOUT ARC.

WHAT IS PILATES?

Pilates is a series of movement exercises that are designed to stretch, strengthen, challenge and balance the whole body.  It brings awareness and focus to the use of breath to enhance the body’s ability to achieve these exercises.  Pilates is a strength-based workout that utilizes functional movement exercises.

WHO IS JOSEPH PILATES?

Joseph Pilates developed the Pilates Method in the early 1900s.  In 1943, his book “Return to Life” was published and this gave us a detailed outline of his mat work.  As Joe says Pilates “is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and the way you work.”  I believe his vision was that he wanted all of us to go through our everyday lives filled with the ease of movement, “spontaneous zest and pleasure.”

WHY IS PILATES FOR ME?

Pilates is for everyone, Pre and Post Natal, Athletes, Neuromuscular Conditions, Rehabilitation, Muscular Imbalances, anyone ages 7-100 and everyone in-between.  ARC Pilates creates a safe and supportive place to move for all levels.  The Pilates Method encompasses the whole body, mind and spirit to achieve movement.    Therefore, whether you want to increase your strength and flexibility, improve your posture, have more energy, move with confidence or take your fitness regime to a completely new level, then Pilates is for you.  At ARC Pilates, we pride ourselves on providing a movement experience with exceptional attention to movement detail while taking into consideration each client’s individual movement needs.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PILATES?

Strength, Flexibility, Coordination, Mobility, Wellness, Quality of Life, Balance, Improved Posture, Improved Muscular Balance & Athletic Performance.

"In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference, and in 30 sessions you will have a whole new body."

Joseph Pilates

I am the Founder of ARC Pilates.  I completed my Level 5 Advanced Classical Pilates Certification at the only accredited Pilates school in Canada, Embody School of Pilates in Canmore, Alberta.  This comprehensive 850-hours certification of in-depth observation, practical and in-class study of all the Pilates Apparatus including Mat, Reformer, Chair, Cadillac/Tower and Ladder Barrel.   I am also a Certified Pilates Teacher through the Pilates Method Alliance.

I had the privilege of attending the Pilates Made Simple and Advance Teaching Techniques workshops with Master Pilates Teacher, Benjamin Degenhardt.  I have also continued my education by attending the Pilates Method Alliance Conference in 2017 and 2018.  I am an Ambassador for Momentum Fest which takes place in June 2019 in Denver Colorado. I believe the learning has only begun! I have been featured in Pilates Style Magazine January/February 2019 for my community work.

I worked in private healthcare for 15 years and in 2016 decided to leave my corporate job of working in a spine clinic to pursue my passion for Pilates.  This is where the journey to ARC Pilates began.

I have been fascinated by movement my whole life. I am active in many movement-filled activities and am passionate about being able to share my love of movement.

I am a busy mother to four children, and movement is a part of our everyday life.  You can often find us at the hockey rink, swimming pool or outdoors.

I am a tenacious networker and life long learner. I am always looking for ways to create connection, collaboration and community within the Pilates industry and beyond.

As a teacher, I believe that everybody leaves our sessions feeling that they have shared in my passion for Pilates in a positive and inspiring way.  I believe that with each Pilates session we can all strengthen, empower and love ourselves from the inside out.

A Heart a Day for FA – Rare Disease Awareness

Ok, you are probably thinking to yourself “what is FA?”  It stands for Friedreich’s Ataxia, a cause very near and dear to my heart.   It is a rare degenerative neuromuscular disease that often affects/weakens the heart! I am a Pilates teacher and a Mother of four- my oldest son was diagnosed with FA in 2010.  Our lives changed forever on that day and our new normal sank into our hearts.  This also changed the direction of my own Pilates journey!
