Week 1 – Back to Basics

My lats, they hurt. I only discovered this during a private with Anna where she had me take a stretch on the Cadillac. It was a sore burning that kicked on when I raised my arms and went into a slight back extension—and it let me know I’d been putting in work.

Hello! I’m Cambrey.

Hello! I’m Cambrey. I’m a professional writer and fitness enthusiast from Detroit. After rolling with the punches of 2020, I decided I would make 2021 a little better by recommitting to my health.

The Value of Matwork

Before I was certified on the Pilates equipment, I had my Mat certification for about two years. Eventually, I got fully certified, and soon found that I chose to do a lot of my workouts on the equipment, since there is so much variety available and I love using the equipment for my clients.

Why Pilates?

As someone with a passion for movement and well-being, I was naturally drawn to Pilates.

I was exposed to movement during my childhood years as a dancer and after graduating college, I began practicing yoga as a mental and physical outlet.

Focus on a transformation bigger than myself

I moved to Detroit so I could pursue my Masters degree in Acting. I wanted to focus my mind, body, and spirit on a transformation bigger than myself. I’ve realized through my studies and Pilates training that I want to help other artists like me reconnect with their bodies.

Working out in a Mask

Since we've been back at the studio, the biggest change for me has been wearing a mask. Though our cleaning protocol is a little more intense, we have always kept a very clean studio and I haven't really felt much of a change there. Even coming through one door and leaving through another hasn't been much of an adjustment.

Pilates Diversity Scholarship

My dear friend and colleague, Holly Furgason, owner of Blue Sparrow Pilates in San Francisco sent me this note recently.

Dear Nancy,

The Pilates field should be a reflection of our larger society and be a leader in creating diverse, inclusive, and equitable spaces for movement.

Coronavirus And Our Community

Greetings:

I want to discuss coronavirus. Like you, I am unsure whether the virus will affect our area, but we have to be diligent to protect each other.

Over 23 years I have heard from many of you that our uber clean studio is one of the reasons you love equilibrium.

Why I Love Cadillac, Chair, and Barrels (CCB)

Have you already taken Mat and Reformer or maybe only one of these courses? Are you wondering why it might be a great idea to take CCB?

I'd like to answer you with a resounding YES!!

After taking Mat and or Reformer you may think that you have enough of a selection of exercises to keep all of your clients happy.
