Getting Mindful Through Trauma
All you need is a mat. Pilates is a fantastic workout that is proven to promote stability, agility, and flexibility while improving posture. All sessions are tailored to your specific needs. We start with the breath. We calm our bodies and our brains with meditation. We stretch. Reiki (energy healing) is optional.
Kindness matters. These sessions, for schools and camps, teach children to meditate and calm their bodies by using the breath. We talk about ways to reduce conflict and discuss what mindfulness means. We stretch out our bodies and do holding yoga poses. Sessions end with positive affirmations.
It is our birthright to be happy and to thrive. Personal and private mindfulness sessions can help you push through challenging times. Tools for these sessions include Reiki (to release stress and negative energy), meditation and breath-work (to calm the mind and body), and journaling (to get to the root of why we feel the way we do).

Having gone through a challenging life experience, I have adopted the work of mindfulness in combination with Pilates, Yoga, Energy work, and meditation. I was first exposed to Pilates and Yoga at age 8 when I started dance. Both practices were used as a warm up, allowing the body to move more freely. I began to experiment with energy work as a way to deal with stress and relax my body and mind. I found the practice so beneficial that I studied with a Reiki Master Teacher and became a certified Reiki practitioner. Following that, I completed an 8-week MBSR course on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, using meditation, breath-work, and journaling. I've found these practices to be so powerful for me personally that I now want to share their benefits with you. The most important part of practice, is the pranayama. The practice of breath control in yoga. This creates mental wellness...MThTTinTtTdfulnessProject

"This morning I took the most amazing Pilates class! It was in the park, on the grass, under a beautiful tree. This was only my third Pilates class but Andrea was amazing. She explained every movement so it was easy to understand and I felt very peaceful and relaxed. The cool down and meditation set my mood for the day! I would highly recommend Andrea's class!"
