HOPE

It's Powerful.  It's Real. It's all We have.

It's hard to believe that a Pilates Instructor could suffer from a paralyzing post traumatic brain and spinal cord disease- but yes I do.   In 2012, my spinal cord disease diagnosis shocked me,  left me in a walker, and  at times in a wheelchair.  

With the diagnosis of  Syringomyelia and a Giant Adhesive Arachnoid Cyst gradually deteriorating the whole of my spinal cord, surgery has not been an option, even today.  


I realized I had to get on the right side of my limitations, and minimize the impacts that this disease was having on my quality of life.   Pain and paraplegia were not an option for me, being at the mercy of my body, was not acceptable to ME  


We don't know how strong we are,  until being strong is the only choice we have. 


TODAY I AM NOT CURED, BUT I AM ALSO NOT AT THE MERCY OF MY SPINAL CORD DISEASE-PILATES SAVED ME

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE LIVE WITH BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD DISEASE EVERYDAY

PILATES WITH SPECIFIC MODIFICATIONS AND REHABILITATION CAN HELP 


IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW SUFFERS FROM A BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD DISEASE YOU MAY RECEIVE COMPREHENSIVE ASSISTANCE CARE RESULTING IN QUALITY OF LIFE IMPROVEMENT

AT FIVE SESSIONS- Client with Lumbar Scoliosis, case of severe rigidity of the curve, clavicle complicated displacement, ipsilateral pectoral collapse, scapular collapse, ipsilateral shoulder and recurrent scapular winging.  This client didn't believe she would ever be a candidate to do Pilates, let alone correct these conditions and mitigate pain and symptoms from the severe scoliosis without surgery.

​AT JUST NINE SESSIONS- THE SAME CLIENT AT ONLY NINE PILATES REFORMER SESSIONS!!  Isn't this amazing!!  The clavicle is no longer displaced.  Pectoral collapse has greatly improved.  The scapular collapse is approximately 97% resolved and the scapular winging, no longer occurs. Neurovascular improvement throughout the spine has occurred without complications to the lumbar scoliosis and without pain to the client.  In addition to the Pilates Reformer work other Pilates focused (homework) was completed by this client daily to meet these goals.  She is no longer at the mercy of her severe scoliosis, she is in control of it!

What our customers are saying

First let me start by saying I have never been a disciplined exercise fan, many failed attempts to stay with a yoga plan, no desire to go to a gym, active yes, but I don't adhere well to scheduled anything...until I was fortunate enough to have found Erica thru the unlikely but helpful Next Door App.  I have always been curious and wanted to check out Pilates, but being non-committal, I never followed thru until now.  My first meeting and session with Erica was in January, where she gave me a thorough and complimentary introductory session on her very high quality Pilates Reformer Equipment.  I immediately knew she was the right person to train with, she has an amazing understanding of the body. how it works and how best to get you motivated.  Not to mention, she is pleasant, sweet and thoughtful.  I began with one session a week and am now at two per week.  I see major results in just this little of time, I'm stronger, I'm more toned, and after every session, a lot less stressed, in part to her calming and encouraging nature.  I have found a discipline I can stick with, so long as Erica is my Pilates guru and guide.  If you are seeking a hands on, one on one instruction by a consummate, educated and experienced instructor, Erica should be your next call.
