Welcome to the Blog.

Apparently, you don’t need to be a writer to write a blog, which is just as well because I’m not a writer; I’m a Pilates Teacher (and a Pilates Studio owner).

This is where I'll try to add another layer of understanding of what we do, how we do it and at times some shorter items of random thoughts and/or reflections.

Trust is a big thing. It’s HUGE.
It’s so immense it becomes an abstract concept (or a philosophical one).

From my perspective as a Pilates teacher / Movement educator, I deal with ‘trust’ when so many come to me NOT TRUSTING THEIR OWN BODY and with that they’re NOT TRUSTING THEMSELVES.

This past week I was reminded of the old saying you might have heard:
"The Only Way Out Is Through".

For me, this saying means to face a challenge head on. 
Look at it. Face it. Sit with it. Get to know it. 
It's the opposite of going around (under/over) or ignoring an obstacle or difficulty. 
It's the opposite of running away from it.

Second week of January 2021.
It almost sounds like the beginning of a diary entry, doesn't it?
Well, truth be told I don't keep a diary, nor am I in the practice of journaling (which to me seems like a different word for the same thing). 
Funny how I seem to always tell you about all those practices that are within the "Wellness Industry" that I don't do (like the Cold Therapy of Wim Hoff)...

✨Get Your Power Back✨

Published on 5th Jan 2021 at 14:00 by Efrat (Aoife) Kahanov

Hi Everyone,

I know things are hard right now and you might be feeling tried of this whole Pandemic stuff. Being stuck in a third lockdown is not what we wished for ourself. 

I hear you.

If you're feeling powerless and less "sparkly" at this moment I wanted to let you know that there is a way to get your own power back, and for that you need two things:
A) Realise you have your own power and B) Take ownership of your power...

But I’m jumping ahead of myself.

Let me start from the beginning - -

Low Energy - being careful with it especially now!

Hi Everyone,

It's getting really close to Christmas now.
Lots to do, get ready, sort out... it can be stressful or it can be exciting and a lot of how you go through this this period depends of your energy levels and how you use the energy you have.

Purpose, Intensity, Commitment & Focus..

Somehow we need to balance the anxiety and restrictions around Covid19 with protecting ourselves.

It seems like a conflict and a tug war between the reality and circumstances we find ourselves in and the knowledge and need of self-care: physically, mentally and emotionally to keep strong and healthy...

I'm so tired..

Hi Everyone!

"I'm so tired. My shoulders hurt. My neck hurts. My whole body hurts." 
These are some of the words I've heard this past week. 
I've also heard the usual "I'm OK, Aoife" that still sounds tired with the 'sure what can you do?' air to it...

Waiting for Godot

Hello hello!
I know the quote above is a bit confusing and weird.
Bear with me though, I’ll explain.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Samuel Beckett – one of the famous 20th century Irish novelist, playwright, short story writer and poet who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature (1969).
Born in Dublin in 1906 he exiled himself (much like James Joyce) and found a welcome home in Paris where he died in 1989.

Space - The Final Frontier

Yes, I’m a “Trekker”.

We used to say ‘Trekkie’ until it became associated with the ones that lost touch with reality. So yes, Trekker.

In case you don’t know, a "Trekker" or a "Trekkie" is a fan of the franchise Star Trek – with its different TV series, movies etc.

Being a Trekker makes me geeky in more ways than one {see, I'm not just a Pilates geek 😇} but NO, this post is not about "the voyages of the starship Enterprise" nor about its "5 year mission (or continuing mission) to explore strange new worlds"...

Life Is In A Constant State of Design

Two full weeks of Jan 2020 are behind us and in case our paths didn’t cross yet I want to wish you:

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a good start to this decade, to this year, to this week and this day – as you read this.

You might not know this, but there are a couple of things that happen almost every New Year that I don't like...
