There actually is a beautiful mountain behind all those clouds.

How are you staying active as the weather turns grey? This kind of weather is my favourite for going for a (quick) run, but if running isn’t your thing, download a wicked podcast or audiobook and go for a long walk. It’s like binge watching while also exercising. Win-win!

You can also join me tonight @5:30pm for some Pilates from the comfort of your home and maybe even in your PJ’s. We’ve got Core Flow and I’m in the mood for a strong hour of movement! 💪🏻

All class links are available for FREE at www.gracemmt.com under Class Schedule.

Not many of us enjoy the end of summer, and this September is WAY colder than last year from what I remember. Despite all that’s happening worldwide let’s try and stay positive. Post Labour Day brings on a new feeling of productivity, and the grey outside is the perfect setting to cozy up on the couch and get some studying done... or whatever “productivity” means for you. I’ve also been painting gnomes!

What are you doing this week to squash the end of summer blues? @ Delta East

*NEW SERIES ALERT*

We told you we have a whole bunch of new amazing classes for you this month!

Core Stability and Stretch for Low Back Pain

Deep yet gentle strengthening to bring more stability and comfort throughout the day

This four week series, run by Devon Honywill, is intended for people of all levels who experience low back pain either during physical activity or periodically throughout the day.

The classes will be run informally with opportunities to ask questions in order to ensure proper engagement and alignment throughout the strengthening and stretching components. Learning to engage the muscles of the deep core can be extremely challenging and can require proper guidance.

This series is being kept to a small number of participants, which will allow for everyone to progress effectively and find their deep core muscles. Classes will progress so that participants first learn how to engage their core before moving on to more advanced sequences that will challenge the core and pelvic stability. As well, all classes will be broken up by periods of rest with time to stretch and create space in the low back.

You will end the series feeling stronger and with tools to use in everyday life, allowing you to move safely as well as ways to relax the low back when you are experiencing discomfort.

Join Devon; a yoga teacher, certified pilates instructor and student of Osteopathy on Tuesday evenings from 6:00pm-7:00pm | Begins September 22nd

I’ve made it to the second round of Best Pilates in Hamilton for the Readers Choice Awards! I really can’t believe these classes I started running out of my attic at the beginning of the pandemic have been so well received. Being able to do what I love and receive the feedback that I hear every week - that you guys love it too - is so rewarding. I would love if you could show your support for my small business by giving me a vote! Vote from all your various email addresses! Poll closes September 27. Direct link below ♥️

I’m teaming up with The Yogashala Waterdown to run a special 4 week series focus on pelvic stability and core strength geared at people who experience low back pain.

The class is going to be kept small to allow for social distancing and is perfect for anyone going through chronic or intermittent back pain. Build your core and learn to engage in ways that will change not only how you move in other classes but throughout your general day.

Please see www.yogashalawaterdown.com for more details or reach out to me directly with any questions. 🙌🏻💪🏻

Did you know that we process the sense of smell in our brains through the hippocampus, hypothalamus and amygdala? These areas relate to memory, hormonal control, and strong emotions. I’m sure we can all relate to the strong reaction we have when we walk in to a room that smells wonderful (or maybe not so wonderful). This is also why we are often flooded with memories in relations to specific scents.

I currently can’t get enough of this Peony & Olive Leaf scent by Dot & Lil - a small company out of Montreal. Treat yourself today by lighting a candle, diffusing an oil, or maybe just getting some fresh flowers and take note of the physical reaction it creates within you 🌺. Also, let me know about your favourite small batch candles - I’ll probably place a huge order immediately.

Changing of seasons can often bring about a lot of mixed emotions - excitement, anxiety, nostalgia. I find that the transition from summer to fall brings this on the strongest as the calendar year is approaching the end yet the "work year" feels as though it's just beginning and routines often change. I would LOVE to be added in to your routine. Please join me for some FREE classes where we sweat, stretch and laugh all within 60 minutes. Please see my website for class links and reach out to me directly with any questions.

Readers' Choice

I’ve been feeling so much love for this practice of Pilates, always really, but especially since COVID hit. I’ve been able to connect with old clients from all over the country and meet so many new people and it warms my heart on a daily basis to be able to bring and feel joy from so many people.

Today I learned that I have been nominated for best Pilates in Hamilton and wow it means so much to me to again have it affirmed that what I’m doing is reaching and connecting with people and improving their life on some level. That’s really what it’s all about. Any vote for Grace, Movement and Manual Therapy would be so appreciated and I hope to see you in my online classes! ♥️

So Excited to announce that starting tomorrow at 11:30am, and every Saturday moving forward, you can find me teaching a Deep Stretch class at The Yogashala in Waterdown 💗

------------------------------------------------------------

Deep Stretch is a class focused on slow, deep stretching and mindfulness, helping you to access areas in the body that hold more habitual tightness, stress and tension. It's a great class for those who are runners, cyclists or are generally physically active.

If you want to slow down and make time for deep stretching, this class will help you gain greater mobility overall, increase flexibility and feel more release overall.

Everyone can benefit from this class - conscious stretching will make you feel more vibrant, energetic and help you sleep better!
