Got Gray? Join Me In Rejoicing

One of the first things to go when the pandemic broke out was the hair styling ritual observed by women throughout recorded history. In my case, this has meant untold gallons of dye, rinse, repeat over the years.

No more. Most/all will have noticed by now my always there gray is now permanently on display. Gray is in, and I’m never going back. And the really good news is, I’m not alone.

Mindbody Migrates Services

On May 1st, the 15th, and the 22nd, from 9 PM to 1 AM PDT, Mindbody, the fulfillment service I use for my clients, is transferring their server operations to the cloud. This change in how sessions are booked and tracked online should see improvement in performance and accessibility.

During those hours, you won’t be able to log in to your account. This shouldn’t have too much impact on your practice, and only affects the Mindbody link, not the website or blog.

The Pilates Philosophy

Joseph Pilates defined his theory of unique fitness training by creating the concept of Contrology. When understood and followed it significantly improves the results you’ll experience at every level.

It isn’t easy combining the physical with the mental. When we do The 100, for instance, it’s much easier to simply go with the flow than it is to focus on proper form, breathing, and engagement. It requires constant concentration.

You can learn more about the mind-body connection in this short article that does a good job of explaining the rewards of pursuing a Contrology workout.

Pilates balance

At Your Pilates Lifestyle, my Classic Practice pursues the rhythmic harmony that naturally occurs when mental focus and physical conditioning are in synch. The feeling experienced after powering through the challenge of a Classical workout is one of accomplishment, control, and exhilaration.
