If you thought you had to be "fit" in order to do pilates or that pilates was only for certain people, BAAAAABY... you are so wrong! Let me help you discover how movement and pilates can transform your life and mindset and have you feeling strong and confident in your body. And do it all from the comfort of your own home. Pants optional!
...so I created a fun at-home program that focuses on functional, intentional movement combined with the basic principles of pilates.
Get Pilates Strong with Andrea came to life in a few ways.
I was continually getting requests from clients in my Coronado, CA studio to have something accessible they can do when they travel or when they're not in town and able to work directly with me.
The way I look and the way I teach pilates made many of you so hopeful. Time and again I would hear from people that they really thought pilates was reserved for rich, white women. Nope! Obviously! Pilates is simply movement and it's for EVERY SINGLE BODY of all genders, races and sizes. For real!
And instead of paying $110 for a session in my studio, you can work out with me from your home for just $14.99 a month! A very minimal investment to bring movement and strength and joy into your life!
Lastly, having rheumatoid arthritis, a debilitating inflammatory autoimmune (AI) condition and being a trained massage and yoga therapist, I know how important movement is to your overall quality of life. However, AI, chronic pain and injuries can make movement challenging. That knowledge prompted the creation of the "One Move Wonders" section. Literally just one move that you can do as often as possible, when you can to help you get movement in your life and keep your muscles activated and healthy.
Get Pilates Strong with Andrea is crafted to work with women at every stage of their life. Videos range from 3 to 30 minutes so you just need to mark out time in your schedule and space in your house and get on the mat!
Get Pilates Strong with Andrea is an online movement and fitness studio created specifically for women who are ready to add movement and pilates into their week from their own home.
This program is perfect if you:
Videos range from 10 to 30 minutes and offer a variety of options to get you strong and bring movement into your weekly routine.
Being able to do the workouts in your house make budget-friendly, time-friendly and makes it easier to fit into your schedule.
The online studio initially launched in December 2019 to just a few new members. The program is still growing and morphing and your input is crucial to continue to make it what you need to be successful.
The program is segmented into five parts:
If you are not used to "intentional movement," begin with One Move Wonders.
It's designed to slowly and gently guide you into movement; one move done a few times a day for 30-45 second increments. As you get stronger and get used to moving, you can add more days, more moves and then try the workouts from the other sections.
The videos are bite-sized, 30 minutes and under, which allow you to schedule your pilates into your life without making it stressful.
Above all, you'll be able to either comment under the videos to get a response or email Andrea directly for assistance with modifications or questions.
YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE.
The short answer is no. As you progress, however, you most definitely will.
As you move through the program, you'll find that having a yoga mat, some thick Mexican blankets, yoga blocks and thick towels will be absolutely necessary.
At a minimum, you'll just need space in your bedroom or living room to do the movements safely, preferably near a wall if your balance or stability isn't great.
As you get stronger, you'll want to have a bit more equipment for resistance to help you build muscle. In the program and during your free trial, you'll have access to a video that explains and shows you different equipment that is helpful to have in your home studio.
The videos cannot be downloaded but you can access them from your laptop, phone, desktop computer or tablet. If you have a smart TV setup, you'll be able to screen mirror your video to your home TV screen for viewing on a larger device.
As long as you have access to Wifi, the videos are accessible.
