By Cody & Michelle | August 16, 2015 |

Congratulations to our Houston Texans on their WIN in the pre-season home opener against the San Francisco 49’ers!

By Cody & Michelle | July 27, 2015 |

  We’ve talked about how Pilates exercise is great for strength, flexibility, balance, control, muscle tone, a flat stomach, spinal health and improved posture.  Did you know that Pilates is good for bone health too?  Bone regenerates and strengthens through forces that act upon it.

Cody’s Blog: Pilates and Pregnancy

By Cody & Michelle | July 5, 2015 |

I was recently asked about Pilates exercise during pregnancy for our Moms-to-be.  Pilates is a wonderful prenatal option!  Pilates strengthens the abdominals and pelvic floor, which helps during the later months of pregnancy, reducing back pain, works as a prep for an easier delivery, minimizes the diastasis, and keeps the abdominals toned for a faster recovery.  Pilates exercise also strengthens posture and improves balance which can be compromised as the body changes.  Once baby is born, Pilates makes Mom strong so she can lift the new baby up and down, get up and down from the floor, and get in…
