    I have taken my dog (JRT) twice in the past; once when she was about 9 months old, and again in 2009, when she was 10. It was hot the last time I took her, and as I discovered, her endurance had...

    Did anyone see the recent results of a study (30 year study, perhaps?) of marathon runners and the increase of plaque buildup in their arteries/cardiac systems? I found it...

    Like many, I stared at that number and thought, "This really can't be accurate. 30?" But then I did my own mental timeline and, well, you know the rest. I'm glad I was able to see his retirement...

    I don't know what type of Reformer you have, or what accessories you have with it, but I'd advise you to go with a DVD as opposed to a book.

    I was introduced to toes on the stirrup about 10 years ago by a friend/semi-trainer/clinician who learned it from George himself. I actually found it very effective in "waking up" my leg to find a...

    Re-read my original reply. I suggested proper postural diagnosis at the outset with a transition/integration back to the tack.

    Since you reference a reformer, you do invoke pilates, so I'll answer to that: everything. I would need to see your body to develop a specific repertoire for you, but essentially everything from your...

    Don't do anything in the tack that is going to further upset your balance and punish your horse for your deficits. You are right side dominant for a reason. Understand what that is - and how you can...

    I would love to help you in person, but suspect we're not geographically convenient. As a certified STOTT PILATES instructor I would start with a postural assessment to determine how your unilateral...

    Many thanks,
