Di’s Story – A Story of a Rebel Determined to Claim her Life Back

It was just another day when I received an online inquiry about Pilates. I emailed back and got in touch with Di. We spoke briefly on the phone. Di sounded quiet. She had Lyme disease. She wanted to give Pilates a try at the recommendation of her sister. She had all over body weakening and knee swelling and inflammation. I asked her if she can take stairs. She said that she should be able to. We scheduled a consultation for her to come visit the studio and meet each other.   A few days later, the appointment time came. Here came this young and beautiful girl. She was maybe mid 30s. Her posture was slumped, her shoulders rounded forward, her knees quite swollen. She came slowly down...

PROUD DAUGHTER MOMENT

My mom and I are quite opposite personalities. She is quiet and the epitome of grace and politeness. Then there is me - outspoken and opinionated.   Mom has never been the workout type. She loves walking but that’s about it. I guess it’s part of our Bulgarian culture and her generation - working out wasn’t the thing. Neither was self care.   Mom has tried Pilates and actually enjoys it. But she never wants to bother me or impose so she doesn’t do it...

MY 2019 WORDS & INTENTIONS

I love this new trend….the word of the year. Last year, I picked the word GROWTH. Unannounced, the word SURRENDER accompanied it. Somehow and inevitably, both words appear to be mutually dependent – in order to grow, one must surrender; in order to be able to surrender, one must grow. 2018 was an amazing year. Indeed, a year full of personal and professional GROWTH and a year where the word SURRENDER gained even more respect in my Rebellious world. SURRENDER as trust that everything that is happening is taking place for a reason, trust that even when things don’t go my way, they are going the way they are supposed to go. A prominent sign in my bedroom faces me each day I wake up: “TODAY YOU...

EO’s SUPPORTING THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

My family’s favorites Aroma Therapy oils: Myrtle (single and milder), RC (Respiratory Care) and Breath Again. Latter two are blends. Apply topically, diffuse. I dilute RC and Myrtle with carrier oil (e.g. coconut, olive, jojoba, etc.) for topical application. Use for anything respiratory-related, even if a cardio activity. As always, remember that purity and potency are of paramount importance! Learn more about Essential oils here https://youtu.be/_IT0gALCY3E ...

Pilates Exercise-THIGH STRETCH

I think the name speaks for itself. Since I run quite a bit, my legs can appreciate this stretch. Feels outstanding. If you have never tried this exercise, it probably looks easy. Don’t be fooled. The midsection (AKA core) is on fire to sustain a long body line. The upper body release on the second version is optional but is a delicious opening of the chest. Know anyone tight out there? Flexibility is a sign of a healthy muscle https://youtu.be/xc3Qn-mQ_wI ...

Environmental Toxins & Health

WHAT ARE ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS? Environmental toxins are naturally occurring or human-made chemicals that can be harmful to our health by disrupting delicate biological processes and systems. There are a variety of environmental toxins found all around us. They are in the air we breathe, in the food we eat, in the personal care and cosmetic products we apply to our skin, in the cleaning products, in the laundry and dry-cleaning detergents, in scented products creating aroma in our homes, in the products we apply to our lawns; environmental toxins are everywhere. There is consensus that exposure to toxic chemicals plays a role in the incidence and prevalence of diseases and disorders in the U.S. There are over 80,000 chemicals on the market. Few of these chemicals have been...
