Evie will teach her clients breathing techniques used with various positions to not only help alleviate possible common discomforts that may arise during pregnancy, but to also apply during labor and birthing, thus preparing and empowering her for this huge upcoming life event!
Those with injuries or existing conditions will find how the regular practice of Pilates will not only improve their ease in movement, decrease pain or discomfort, but will develop greater physical stamina, mind/body balance and well being as a whole. The true key is movement ~ movement heals the body.
Evie offers a variety of classes and sessions where you can experience the benefits of Pilates during a private one-on-one setting or with others in a class environment. With competitive prices you won't have to search elsewhere to start your fitness program.
Evie has expanded her wellness offerings with PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) therapy which works to improve circulation and resets optimal function of the organs and systems in the body, including brain function. She also shares her knowledge of aroma therapy and use of essential oils as a way to improve and maintain a healthy immune system, as well as using the oils to treat minor ailments.
Evie has also added Reiki to her repertoire, a very special energy work that helps to improve energy flow in the body to promote healing.
All these health and wellness modalities work toward bringing resonance and balance to the body and mind to create optimal health to improve quality of life on a physical, mental and emotional level.
Evie has two wonderful children, Bryce and Crystal who also enjoy healthy living and fitness. Along with their own workout practices (Bryce at the gym, Crystal as a Yoga teacher on the west side) they too come and do Pilates with their mom. When Evie isn't in the studio working, she is spending time with them, enjoying the beach, a good meal out or at home, going with Bryce to take one of Crystal's classes, or getting together to watch a soccer match (especially exciting during the World Cup!).
Enjoying life is key to lifelong wellbeing and happiness. Evie has a passion for mind/body health and encompasses a genuine joy to share it with others.
