Pilates for Rehab, consider these five common ailments:
low back pain
injured rotator cuff
post-natal diastasis recti
|Pilates is one of the best exercise options for dealing with chronic pain because it involves neuro-muscular re-education. We begin by creating an awareness of the deep torso muscles that create the body’s core support system. We work to increase general strength, endurance and the re-patterning of any muscular-skeletal imbalances that may exist, so that the body is reintegrated as a whole. All movements are carefully monitored by a certified STOTT PILATES instructor with experience working with injuries and special populations. All exercises are individualized and designed to avoid pain.
WHAT CAN PILATES DO FOR YOU:
- Strengthen muscles
- Stabilize joints
- Improve posture
- Improve flexibility
- Improve breathing
- Core connection
- Improve low back strength and stability
- Restore the body to proper function
- Help you understand how the body works

LES BOYS DU BALLET
Documentary about 3 boys dancing at Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School. One of those boys featured is my son Michel, 14 at the time. It will air Sunday January 17th 2016 at 12noon channel 912 with Shaw and channel 409 with MTS
Dans l’univers de la danse classique, les danseuses sont souvent mises de l’avant, dans toute leur élégance… mais qu’en est-il des danseurs ? Le documentaire « Les boys du ballet » plonge dans l’univers de trois garçons qui s’investissent corps et âme dans le ballet depuis un très jeune âge : Logan, 10 ans, Michel, 14 ans et Philippe, 21 ans. Ils sont tous les trois danseurs au Ballet royal de Winnipeg, l’une des plus vieilles compagnies de danse en Amérique. L’école compte une division récréative, une division professionnelle, ainsi que le programme des aspirants, le plus haut et dernier niveau. Chaque année, le Ballet royal lance un processus d’auditions à travers le Canada afin de recruter les talents les plus prometteurs dans son école professionnelle. Sur les 500 jeunes qui auditionnent chaque année, le Ballet Royal de Winnipeg n’en accepte qu’une centaine dans son école d’été. Au terme de cette courte formation estivale, l’école n’en retient qu’une trentaine
