PILATES & Movement Training

Welcome, I hope you enjoy the collection of classes and videos that are offered down below.  Make sure to choose the category of classes that best suit your ability and experience.  New videos will be added along the way.  Remember to breathe and think about using good form throughout the class…there should never be pain or discomfort!  If you have any questions just contact me in the button below.

Pilates with Cindy recommends that you consult with a doctor or health care practitioner before doing any of these virtual Pilates or movement videos.  If you experience any pain or discomfort during the course of a video stop immediately and seek medical attention if needed.  These exercises may not be appropriate for prenatal/postnatal women, those with hip or knee replacements or other health issues. 

New videos will be added along the way.  Please avoid any movement that is not appropriate for you to do.
Movement videos

You will find these videos at the bottom of this page.  Here I have a wide collection of quick and simple videos to help strengthen or improve many joint functions.

These classes are specific for those who have never done Pilates before. Want to give Pilates a try? Practice these classes first before moving on to the Beginner+ level.  

BEGINNER+ level classes

These classes are for those who have done some Pilates mat before, so some experience is required. Learn some more vocabulary if you have been doing the Basic level classes for a while.

ELDOA METHOD
Have you ever heard about Eldoa?

Eldoa for the Hips & Low back or Shoulders & Neck

The ELDOA exercises and Myofascial Stretches are specific techniques created by world renowned osteopath, Guy Voyer. The primary goal is to increase space by decompressing specific joints. There is an ELDOA for every joint in the body and often there is an improvement in joint mechanics, increased blood flow, reduced pressure on the discs, a reduction of pain, improved posture, and a sense of well being and awareness.

In these two introductory videos, Sheri Kimura, an Eldoa practitioner, shows us a few Eldoa exercises that help to open the hips and stretch the low back as well as release tension in the neck and shoulders.  If you have never done Eldoa before please check with your health practitioner if you have any questions before doing them.
