Pilates starting in June!!!

Joseph Pilates said, “Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.” This philosophy shines through with each movement you learn and with each step towards better health you take.

Practiced correctly , Pilates will strengthen your core muscles ( deep abdominal, back and pelvic floor muscles ) and your deep back muscles, helping you achieve relief for your back pain.

Pilates also teaches awareness of neutral alignment of the spine; alignment that is neither perfectly flat nor overly arched; strengthening the deep muscles that support the alignment are important to prevent and alleviate back pain.

The best part of your Pilates experience may be the individualized attention you receive making sure you understand each exercise and each movement for a completely transforming workout. We pride ourselves on providing a safe, comfortable, affordable and friendly workout environment.

If you are looking to transform your body and renew your spirit try our Pilates class with Paula.

June:   Mondays and/or Wednesdays 1:00-2:00pm

July:    Monday 11:45am, Wednesday 1pm

 A note from Paula Micale, your Pilates instructor…

I was born in Bedford, Maine, moved New Jersey at an early age and then to Shallotte, North Carolina in 2011. I am married with two children and two grandchildren.  I became interested in Pilate fitness while an owner/operator of a fitness center in Freehold, NJ. In 2002 I obtained my Personal Pilates Fitness Trainer Certification from the Joseph H. Pilates institute in Waco, Texas, where I learned to teach and understand the techniques of Pilates fitness training.  I introduced Pilates fitness training at my fitness center and taught from 2002 to 2008.  In 2013 after leaving NJ and moving to NC I again became interested in Pilates fitness training. I took a refresher/recertification course in Wilmington, NC.

Since 2013, I have been teaching Pilates at the community center in the Rivers Edge Golf and Plantation where I am a resident.  I have enjoyed teaching Pilates for many years and have seen the benefits in my students as they obtain core strength, flexibility, balance, and general good health.  In my classes the environment is warm and welcoming.  We work hard as a team but share some laughs along the way. I am enthusiastic about helping my students build body awareness and improving their quality of life.  By observing a student’s posture and breathing I can evaluate their progress.  The love of Pilates makes people feel better and move with ease and confidence.

Follow your Breath!!
