Active Pilates, Doterra Essential Oils and Ben Lee

In November 2016 Active Pilates hosted an evening to remember!!   Sarah Brunton PITC student, presented Doterra essential oils with Samantha Goldsmith and well known Aria award winner Ben Lee. It was a compelling and informative afternoon filled with methods on how to improve and compliment your health care using essential oils. The afternoon was enjoyed by all and we were even treated to a live performance from Ben Lee’s most recent work. Essential oils are an excellent compliment to the Pilates Matwork classes, enhancing the overall experience by bringing about relaxation, motivation and concentration.  You will find these oils being used at Active Pilates in Sarah’s Matwork classes.

Active Pilates Lorna Jane Movement Event

Active Pilates Ormeau opened our new Pilates studio in January 2016.  We were proud to host an event in December of 2016 called, ‘Active Pilates Lorna Jane Movement Event’.  We used this opportunity to show case Pilates Studio workouts, training sessions and current Lorna Jane Activewear Clothing that is available to purchase from our store. This was held as a trial event with our fabulous clients performing their Pilates repertoire on the studio equipment and 10 invited guests gave us invaluable feedback on how we can best represent Active Pilates and Lorna Jane Activewear in our community. After the Friday evening event, I think we all looked at the event in a different way.  We will look forward to enlightening the Ormeau community midyear 2017 in the services that are available right here in their back yard, providing quality Pilates training in Matwork and Studio equipment as well as quality[…]

As evidence for the existence of myofascial chains is growing, and the capability of force transmission via myofascial chains has been hypothesized. However, there is still a lack of evidence concerning the functional significance and capability for force transfer. A systematic literature research was conducted using MEDLINE (Pubmed), ScienceDirect and Google Scholar. Studied myofascial chains encompassed the superficial backline (SBL), the back functional line (BFL) and the front functional line (FFL). Peer-reviewed human dissection studies as well as in vivo experiments reporting intermuscular tension transfer between the constituents of a myofascial chain were included. To assess methodic quality, two independent investigators rated studies by means of validated assessment tools (QUACS and[…]

Nine Ways to Find Peace Every Day

Written by Amelia Harvey (Life  Coach) www.ameliaharvey.com.au Unconsciously, many of us put off feeling calm and peaceful until we can get to a yoga class, afford a massage, put our feet up on the weekend, or escape to a relaxing location.    Which means, in normal life, we rush around in a chronic state of stress, emotional turbulence, and just not feeling like the best version of ourselves.   Instead of waiting for the opportunity to relax, all it takes is a few tiny tweaks to the way we go about our day and we can experience more peace straight away.   Here are 10 ways to infuse more peace into your day – minimal time and effort required:   1.
