So here we are again: level 3 and the studio will be shut for at least 2 weeks. 😖But the good news is we’re now experts at teaching online because we’ve been doing it on and off for 2 years! 🥇 So provided you have a yoga mat and a few household items, I can make you sweat and keep you relatively sane and happy (relatively). 🤪😅Stay safe, wash your hands, keep moving. #frederictonfitness #covidfitness #mentalhealth #fredericton #frederictonnb #downtownfredericton #frederictonsmallbusiness #frederictonbusiness #staysafe #staypositive #inthistogether
Day 3 of #pilatesologychallenge and I chose « Foundation Flow » by Niedra Gabriel. Here is a Swan preparation that helps mobilize and strengthen the upper back extensors whilst retaining length.As someone who spent my youth bending back from my lumbar spine, I can tell you there are rich lessons to be drawn from such a seemingly simple movement. It’s also a very important exercise for overall back health. ⚠️Just think LENGTH rather than HEIGHT. Proof yet again that in Pilates, “beginner” doesn’t mean “easy”. 😏#pilates #contrology #pilatesstudio #pilatesstrong #pilatesfit #pilatesmat #backhealth #lowbackpain #strongspine #strongback #pilatescanada #classicalpilates #authenticpilates#fredericton #frederictonnb #frederictonfitness #downtownfredericton #frederictonbusiness
Day 2 of #pilatesologychallenge - 30 consecutive days or Pilates (pssst! It’s never too late to join).My confused face = yet another little epiphany. This smart variation on the Roll Up makes keeps the chest open and  prevents you from rolling your shoulders inwards. Thanks @stellarose_pilates (from the « How to build a better teaser » workout on @pilatesology). Note: I may not be posting every day (time, innit?!) but trust me when I say I walk the walk, because it feels so awesome. 🥳#pilates #walkthewalk #pilatesmat #pilates #contrology #pilatesstudio #pilatesstrong #pilatesfit#pilatescanada #classicalpilates #authenticpilates#fredericton #frederictonnb #frederictonfitness #downtownfredericton #frederictonbusiness

To the untrained eye, it may look like Integrity Pilates is just me, myself and I. But let me tell you, it takes a village to build a quality studio, teaching and brand.

Today Auntie Flo reads you a story: an ode to the changing powers of Pilates and yoga (used interchangeably here) by the utterly brilliant @mscaitlinmoran Pilates, yoga - whichever you’re doing to regain agency and control over your body: this is how it feels to untie the knots and become young again. It’s pretty magical and empowering!💪✨⭐️🎇🎆(Also: buy that book!) #yoga #pilates #pilatesforlife❤️ #pilatesforlife #pilatesforrealpeople #pilateseveryday #pilatesstudio #pilatesstrong #pilatesfit  #pilatescanada #classicalpilates #authenticpilates #fredericton #frederictonnb #frederictonfitness #downtownfredericton #pilatesfredericton #frederictonpilates #frederictonbusiness #fitnessmotivation #lowbackpain
I’m adding an extra day to the #contrologyfreakchallenge: the blooper reel!All those moments that didn’t quite go to plan, from a wobble to a cramp to falling on your face. 🤕🤨😅Keeping it real and honest, peeps! #workthesystem #pilates #contrology #pilatesstudio #pilatesstrong #pilatesfit#pilatescanada #classicalpilates #authenticpilates#fredericton #frederictonnb #frederictonfitness #downtownfredericton #frederictonbusiness
Day 7/ last day of the #contrologyfreakchallenge is #thepushup (real good 😜). Like the other exercises featured this week, the Pilates push-up is an advanced exercise. It can be introduced once the student demonstrates good shoulder and pelvic stability, a strong Powerhouse and (cherry on the cake) the ability to articulate their spine.💪Push-up with the Push-Up Handles 💪💪 Push-up on the Mat💪💪💪 Press Up Front on the High ChairPilates is a system. #workthesystemThank you @kiraslamb for setting this challenge and making us use our grey cells + show what real Pilates is!#pilates #contrology #pilatesstudio #pilatesstrong #pilatesfit#pilatescanada #classicalpilates #authenticpilates#fredericton #frederictonnb #frederictonfitness #downtownfredericton #frederictonbusiness #frederictonpilates #pilatesfredericton
