It’s Pilates day Saturday May 5th,
we are celebrating, and you are invited!

Please join us for a wonderful Upside-Down Pilates workout from
3:30 – 4:30!
Contact us at info@upsidedownpilates.com to reserve a spot in this workshop.
Then at 4:45, Lisa Orig will give an amazing Sugar Blues workshop!

Are you the type of person who craves sweets? Do you have low energy in
the middle of the day? If so, this workshop will be a turning point in
your life.

She has designed this class to permanently change your relationship with
sugar. You will leave this class understanding the causes of your sugar
cravings and you’ll receive practical tools for dealing with them.

A note from Lisa, January 6 week series…
View this email in your browser
Building the foundation!

It’s funny to me how many people wait until the beginning of a new year to start an exercise program.  We think that this year will be different.  I get tons of calls and emails from people wanting to get in shape at the top of January.  The best way to ensure success for the new year is building a new foundation and being open to change.  The more new students are ready for change, the greater success they have!

All new students must start by building a new foundation.  I see so many people going to the traditional gym or doing the latest fad wanting to loose weight and have cut abs.  Unfortunately, most of them either give up by mid-February or hurt themselves doing their new exercise routine.

When building a house there is no point of having lush carpet, marble counter tops, and luxurious drapes if the foundation is cracked, the frame is termite ridden, and the roof has gaping holes in it!  It is the same in our bodies.  What is the point of having 6 pack abs, bustling biceps, and buns of steel, if our transversus abdominus and multifidus are not firing leaving us with back pain, our rotator cuff and serratus anterior are not coordinated leaving us with shoulder impingement, and our gluteus medius is asleep leaving us with hip  and leg pain?  So let’s be smart about how you choose to start a new exercise program.  Learn how to move from the inside out in a safe, efficient, and effective manor.  Then you will see the lasting results from deep within.  I hope to see you in the studio for 2014.

Happy New Year!

Lisa

Six Week Series Group Class

Aloha Pilates Addicts-

 

I wanted to let everyone know we are changing the program a bit.  We are bringing back the six week series for the more dedicated students who need a specific time and level, but keeping some of the group lessons available for registration one at a time.  For the one at a time classes we are opening those classes up to mixed levels so we are able to accommodate more people based on time needs.

 

The six week series is for a more serious student who wants other students in the class to be at a similar level and can commit to being in the class.  It is like going to school for your body.  Here is the description-

 

Six week series is the premier way to study Upside-Down Pilates in a group setting. These are progressive and leveled courses for the serious and dedicated Upside-Down Pilates student.  In each six weeks series we will learn a specific sequence of exercises and learn a specific piece of anatomy.  The course will be geared towards the registrants in the course.  Students must have permission to be in the level of class they desire.  MIn. 2 Max. 4 students. $180 plus tax.  No refunds or cancellations for these courses.

 

Mixed level group Upside-Down Pilates lessons are for individuals who need a more flexible schedule and want a basic overall workout without the detail of perfecting a sequence and learning anatomy.  Here is the description-

 

Group Upside-Down Pilates lessons are mixed level group classes that provide an overall workout for the body.  Students must have participated in the introductory solo lesson package or level one six week series and have the studio’s permission to attend these open level group classes.  Min. 2 Max. 4 students. One Group Class $35, Six Pilates Group Classes $195, Twelve Pilates Group Classes $360.

 

Feel free to contact us if you have questions.  If you would like to be in a six week series and need guidance on which level to participate in we will be delighted to help you!

 

See you soon-

Lisa

 

Student Stories 

Patty January 2013  Patty October 2012

Student of the Month: Patty

 

 

 

 

 

                                                          OCTOBER 2012          JANUARY 2013

 

Patty started with me (Lisa Orig) in October of 2012. She was referred to me by a local naturopath and was looking for a change in her exercise practice. An avid yoga participant four times per week for over 10 years, her posture had conformed to the shape of her practice. Her weight was forward on the balls of her feet. Her knees   were hyperextended or “locked” as her yoga teachers had taught her. Her feet were smashed together and constantly cramping due to weakness of her intrinsic feet muscles from her high heels. Her hips were constantly flexed and her lower back hyper-extended also due to her high heels. Her upper back was flat and under constant contraction. Her shoulder blades were pinched together, and her head was jetting forward from hours at the computer. Sixty plus years of life was sitting in her posture and she was ready to change it!

 

After showing Patty what I saw and explaining that change can be hard and slow, we set out on a journey together doing 2 solo’s per week for 6 weeks. We practiced breathing, learned proper biomechanic patterns of movement, strengthened the weak deep muscles, and stretched and relaxed the tight and overused outer shell muscles of her body. At the end of the six weeks Patty was addicted and ready for more. She had become an Upside-Down Dance and Pilates Addict.

 

In January of 2013, only two months later was my studio’s annual assessment period. I take pictures and reassess all solo students progress and plan for the next year. Patty’s progress was obvious and amazing! Although I could see remnants of her initial posture, one thing was clear- she was standing completely differently! Her weight was in the center of her feet, her knees were less hyperextended, her hips, shoulders, and head were all lined up through the center of her feet. To Patty’s delight, her hips had clearly toned up and her clothes were fitting looser. Patty was feeling stronger, lighter, and more alive.

 

NEW ONLINE WORKOUTS!

Upside-Down Dance & Pilates now has online workouts available on our website!! We will be uploading new workouts weekly!  Now available is Groundwork I, a basic mat workout.  Soon to be available- Reformer I, Cadillac I, and Chair I

Your first lesson will be much like a meet and greet! Arrive 10 to 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to fill out some forms that will help us learn more about you. After reviewing the forms we will do a static postural assessment and a dynamic movement assessment. If time allows we will then begin your study with learning about proper breathing techniques and pelvic mobility and stability.

On your second lesson we will review with you what we discovered in your static postural and a dynamic movement assessment. We will share with you what we feel needs to be strengthened, stretched, and any movement patterns that need to be retrained. We will then get started.

On your third lesson we will continue your study of neuromuscular efficient movement and then offer you the best course of action for you individual needs

10am – 2pm

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Patterns were identified by physical therapists in the late 1940′s and early 1950′s to assist in the rehabilitation of MS and cerebral palsy patience.  In this workshop we will learn the anatomy behind PNF patterns D1 and D2 of the arms.  We will explore how applying these patterns to movement training such as dance and Pilates will increase strength, flexibility, coordination, injury prevention and resolution, and proper usage patterns in the arms.  We will further show how the PNF patterns can connect the usage of the arms into the torso or core of the body.

PNF porte de bras will be taught along with PNF patterns using the reformer, Pilates arc, and hand weights.  Muscles of the shoulder girdle and torso will be taught for a clearer understanding of these magnificent patterns.
