Pilates Studio Emphasizes Matters of the Heart


Happy Valentine's Day from Therese and the Hills Pilates and Wellness Studio!

During this Valentine's month we would like to emphasize matters of the heart: Heart health and the heart chakra in our yoga and Reiki systems. Read more below. We also want to recognize February as Black History Month and the importance of supporting black businesses in our community, especially during this time of Covid and economic downturn. Here is a list of local businesses: https://sfist.com/2020/06/04/you-can-find-black-owned-businesses-to-support-with-these-apps-and-online-lists/

Pilates Barre+Jams is a blackowned Pilates studio in Oakland and owner Teresa R Ellis was featured in Pilates Style Magazine last year highlighting how the Pilates world - unfortunately, is predominantly white and sometimes covertly racist:
Teresa's perspective and unflappable spirit points to how Pilates is and should be for every - body, just as Joseph Pilates intended it to be!

Much love and good health to you,
Therese and the Hills Pilates and Wellness Studio Team

Pilates Training and Heart Health


Pilates training offers great benefits for our heart health. The focused breath work and full body movement of Pilates can improve our cardiovascular capacity while at the same time calm down our nervous system and reduce the effects of stress.
