At Vessel Pilates, our mission is to cultivate a welcoming, non-judgmental and supportive space for women, helping them heal through the power of movement, nourishing food and self-care.
Core strength is essential to so many aspects of our health and fitness. When you have a strong core, you are less likely to injure yourself doing daily tasks, your breathing is more efficient, and you can train better if you’re involved in athletic activities. Many people don’t realize that your core is much more than just the ab muscles. Next month, Vessel classes will bring attention to the many different areas of the core and how developing them will help you in the future.
The fall season is wonderful. Kids are going back to school, sports are starting back up, holidays are just around the corner. It’s energizing! And, it’s stressful. When you feel pulled in a million directions, the last thing you want to do is come up with ways to take care of your mental health. Luckily, staying on top of stress doesn’t have to be huge time-commitment. We’ve gathered some easy, yet effective, ways to relieve a little of that stress.
Podcasts are so popular these days and there is one for almost any interest. Sometimes, though, having so many options can make it hard to narrow down the choices. In case you’re in a slump and looking for some inspiration, we asked some Vessel staff what’s on their favorites list.
Lindsay Carthen is such a joy to have in our studio. She makes a point to come whenever she can, and she brings her sweet kids to share with us! This busy mom creates space for herself and it’s so admirable to see someone who recognizes the importance of self-care. If you see her around the studio, introduce yourself! She’s a ray of sunshine!
Some of you may have seen Paige’s great smile around the studio. She is a dedicated Vessel member and an even more dedicated mom and foster mom. She and her family have fostered several young children over the years and do everything in their power to provide a loving and safe home for them. They recently received a brand new baby and Vessel is hosting a donation drive for them.
