I have been teaching pilates matwork and movements for 20 years. From professional dancers, athletes to office worker or student, many suffer from back pain, especially lower back pain.
I am also a mindfulness and meditation practitioner, whom I had gained much benefit in this fast moving world that we are in. Slowing down and breathing mindfully
can truly help me and my students to heal.
I no longer teach pilates for people who only wants a weight loss approach but dedicate my time to help people in healing from their pain, which can guide them to regain freedom of movement!
You will learn how to breathe and relax properly so that your para-sympathetic system will be enhanced. We want to ease the pain that may also be caused by mental and emotional reasons.
I have developed a sequence and progressive method that will help you to free up your back and guide you on how to engage your deep core muscles that will help to support your spine.
This is a holistic approach where we will be practising mindful breathing, pilates mat exercises and sequence; total relaxation and mindfulness practices. Regular practices with awareness will relieve your pain.
You will have access to one video per day to help you progress slowly in these 14 days.
However, please take your time to progress slowly, as every individual, has different needs and adaptability.
The bonus video will help you to release more tension and also be very clear of the fundamentals of pilates and mindfulness that will help you to gain strength without stressing your back or neck.
These are additional notes which you can have a quick reference - the fundamentals of pilates, benefits of mindfulness practices and also advice on how to continue the practice after the 14 days; maintaining good spinal health and mental state.
I have spinal fusion at the L4/5 vertebra and have chronic lower back pain. During The Breathing Pilates course by Carol, I learnt the importance of connecting my breath to my core muscles which ultimately supports my spine. She emphasizes on engaging the correct core muscles for each exercise while making sure that we maintain correct form and posture. I find that I am able to function better in my daily routine after attending the course.
There is a lot of valuable information in the course, and I know a lot of people will benefit from it. Thank you for taking the time to put it all together and offer it to the public. Breathing Pilates is an approach I have never seen, and it's very important for me at this time in my life. I think it's always beneficial to review the basics of Pilates, especially when the approach is so unique.
I've been suffering from strong tensions in neck and shoulders for a very long time. Before taking up Pilates lessons with Carol a few years ago I haven´t been aware of my body and my breathing. Carol helped me with creating body awareness and taught me, how proper breathing helps to release stress and body tensions. She is an excellent and very experienced teacher! Her exercises are well explained, step by step and easy to follow and on top, very effective. I highly recommend Carol´s classes!
A couple of years back, I suffered from frozen shoulder. I went to chiropractor but couldn't get it healed. I went through intensive TCM treatment by a specialist physician for a period of time. I was able to move my arm more freely after the treatments but could not raise it straight up, pointing to the sky anymore. At most it was about 70% of my original function. I was more or less resigned to the fact that I would live with this state, for the rest of my life.
Thereafter, I chanced upon Carol from her Facebook post on The Breathing Pilates. I didn't sign up because of my shoulder, it was more to correct my posture. I have since been consistently practising under her. One day, my friend asked me how was my frozen shoulder. I raised my arm, intending to show, "look this is as much as I can recover, 70% of my original function." But to my amazement, my arm shot up straight pointing to the sky! It was 95% now! Never in my wildest dream did I ever thought this was possible. My shoulder had recovered unknowingly while practising Breathing Pilates with Carol.
The fees will eventually be raised as the method had helped real people like you, and it will save you some money from some medical or therapy bills. More importantly, it can kick start a new habit towards a pain-free life.
