As a Pilates instructor, I practice Pilates at least three, mostly four times a week. I practice what I teach! I want my clients doing Pilates with me or at home a few times a week and maybe a few minutes extra on their off days. When you do Pilates something amazing happens. Your mind focuses solely one what you are doing in that moment. The whirlwind slows, the angst, nerves, stress and excitement of the day take a chill pill for that moment.
You plan your next trip back to do it all over again! … We arrived here on Sunday, March 5th, and our personal tuk-tuk driver Poly took us to our retreat space. I knew this space would be unique and calm. I was not expecting it to be this artistic oasis with plenty of meditation spots, hammocks, mango trees with branches that provided a canopy from the Cambodian sun and bungalows with handmade mosaic floors.
After more blood tests, breath tests, a colonoscopy, an endoscopy, rounds of antibiotics and then more blood tests, oh, and one visit to the infectious disease specialists I took a massive leap. I had heard of this guy who used to work with NASA doing research. He realized his research could help more people and he started his company that many professional and Olympic athletes use. My husband’s business partner used him based on a referral of another client of his.
As I write this post I am hours away from a call with hopefully my last attempt to living life without wondering can I eat this? If I eat this how will I feel?
I going to just get super freaking honest here. I try to not be jealous of anyone. It happens, but usually, I take note and move on.
Hello, my name is Lesley, I often go by LL. I am a wife to a lovely man who rocks my world and supports me like crazy, mom to two Pitt Bulls Gaia and Bayon, a Pilates instructor, Pilates business coach, and a sufferer of digestive issues.
Last night I reached a breaking point. I went to bed with stomach pain again. It wasn’t my first breaking point around this issue. I have no idea if it will be my last. I certainly hope so…
Retreats! They are not just for Yogi’s anymore.
One of my dreams and goals is to teach Pilates all over the world. This year I have been making that magic happen. I have a Pilates retreat in Cambodia, one in Maui, Hi and this June I’m teaming up with my Pilates Day Retreats partner and bringing you a much requested Pilates Retreat in Ojai, Ca.
I cannot believe that Jeni Del Pozo and I have now led four Pilates Day Retreats since our launch! It’s pretty crazy how a little idea (we should be doing Pilates Retreats) and a couple of almond milk latte’s birthed what is now Pilates Day Retreats. We have toured all of Los Angeles and all over the Pilates studio, and we are now taking our Pilates Retreats to Your Neighborhood Studio in Culver City, CA.
I am beyond excited for my Pilates Retreat in April of 2017! Besides my love for Spring I am honored to share a week of Pilates classes, workshops and the beaches of Maui, Hawaii with my friend, colleague and incredible Pilates instructor Arlene Taus Soloman.
Hello my Pilates lovers, I am excited to announce a few wonderful options for enjoying Pilates with me from wherever you are in the wonderful world. Basically, after almost ten years of teaching and hundreds of clients that I have met here in LA, while I was traveling or while they were visiting, many of you do not live in LaLa Land (Los Angeles).
A trip to Angkor Wat is already on your “bucket list” check that box off in 2017 by joining me on a journey of a lifetime. Arriving on a Sunday evening at Siem Reap, Cambodia airport I’ll have your Tuk-Tuk driver already there. They will bring you to our resort. Blue Indigo located in downtown Siem Reap. We will have the whole resort to ourselves and enjoy Vegetarian meals made on site. This retreat has daily Pilates mat classes, two workshops and two days touring the Temples with a guide. What are you waiting for?
