Client Spotlight – Meet Lori Roberts

“Pilates has given me a longer and leaner look.”

                   Meet the fabulous Lori Roberts IMG_0012 

So why Pilates Lori? What keeps you coming back? I needed something different. I “grew up” in the gym and being in my 40s I was ready for my body to look different. Pilates has given me a longer and leaner look. It challenges me every time I hit the mat. It also feels awesome when I finally nail something I’ve been trying to tackle after months and months. The teachers here are welcoming, supportive, encouraging, completely nonjudgemental and really have always challenged me along the way.

You spent time working in the fitness industry, tell us more…. I actually have a Masters degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Corporate Fitness and Community Wellness. I started out as an athletic trainer and migrated into my of the wellness field. I was a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Certified Group Exercise Leader. Why not, right? I was lucky enough to work for the U.S. Armed Forces in Greece and train some top U.S. and NATO personnel. What an awesome opportunity on so many levels. Quick fun fact… I was lucky enough to work with Billy Blanks a couple of times and even get a personal training session in with him at one point. He was the great equalizer in so many ways. Haha. A great man and a story best told over a drink 😀

Tell us about your first class at studioVIBE…. I was nervous as @&?!#!! I was used to being the fit girl that was setting the pace that I had to embrace and accept just being the girl trying to survive her first mat class and praying Missy didn’t scare me off😀. She obviously didn’t and I was hooked!

You have been coming regularly, what classes are you taking? My goal is 2-3 classes a week with a mixture of Mat and Tower. I was even able to get in a Reformer/Chair tutorial one night so that’s on my radar next. If I’m in town I don’t miss class. I’ve even been known to pack my yoga mat on my travels IMG_0013

What do you do when you are not at studioVIBE? I really don’t do too much. My fiancé and I play some golf… paddle board… a dabble of yoga here and there. Most of my serious work is really done within the walls of StudioVibe.

Any last minute words for someone who is contemplating getting started? Literally, just take the first step. That’s the hardest part. You most likely won’t set the world on fire at first but just hang in there, go at your own pace, and I promise the hard work will pay off.  Also, just wanted to add that I have met so many great people IN the classes.  It’s like we all have each other’s back and best interest in mind – I LOVE it!

Class Description:
This four-part series taught by Alyson, Rachel & Thea is designed for those new to yoga, as well as for experienced practitioners who wish to gain a deeper, embodied understanding of the foundational poses and principles of yoga.
Class size will be small to create a supportive environment and ensure individual attention from our team of teachers. Each session will build on the one before and will include practice, discussion, and relaxation. After completing this foundations series, you will feel prepared to confidently explore the wealth of ongoing group yoga classes offered by StudioVIBE.

Foundation 1 – Grounding ~ Dig deeply into those poses designed to connect us to the earth, develop stability, and utilize effective alignment. We will lay the groundwork for attentively and safely expanding our physical practice, honing body awareness, and utilizing the power of the breath. We will also provide a meditation primer to cultivate mindfulness.

Foundation 2 – Climbing ~ With our roots now firmly planted, we will extend our reach to lengthen and strengthen the body. Through a series of heart opening “sun” poses complimented by calming “moon” poses we will release tension, utilize our core strength, and balance the flow of energy through our body. A focus of this session will be consciously elevating our practice while not compromising the integrity learned in the first foundation class.

Foundation 3 – Spiraling ~ Invite your body to embrace the nourishing and detoxifying practice of twists. We will systematically integrate the components of safe twists to provide our body maximum nourishment for the spine and
internal organs. Seated, standing, balancing, and reclining twists will wind their way into our time together as we bring careful attention to this portion of our practice.

Foundation 4 – Emerging ~ With our foundation established, we will enjoy a culminating practice designed to integrate and celebrate all we have learned to date. In designing today’s class, your team of teachers will weave together your requests for favorite poses, breathing practices, and meditations to create a special practice that will leave you feeling better than you can imagine. Come ready to smile!

The Wisdom of Yoga – A Weekend with Lila Brown

The Wisdom of Yoga
Creating Harmony in Mind, Body, & Spirit 

with Lila Brown

The practice of Yoga has always been a way to align with Nature and its wisdom. Throughout the seasons, we practice specific postures that invite balance to the system, at certain times of the day and year creating more heat and stoking the inner fire, and at other times creating more cooling energy to nourish the flow of water and life. In a similar way, Nature through its expression within the astrological framework has given people access to the intelligence inherently lying in the constellations and planets. The symbolism and myths within the Cosmos and their significance in the human psyche are powerful tools for awakening.

Each class during this weekend of workshops will weave together the natural wisdom of yoga with the astrological myths and symbolism in practices that both invite transformation and create harmony within the body, mind, and spirit.

Attend any combination of sessions or make it your own local “retreat” weekend!

Friday December 4, 6:00-8:30PM   Descending the Roots
