A brand new Pilates studio has hit Hollywood!  Check out our reviews!  

Syd's Review -

I am officially 7 hours post my Pilates class with my dear friend,Tia Schroeder, owner of the new Hollywood studio, Love For Pilates, and I am sore.  Whoa!  Super sore.  You guys know I workout all the time.  I'm either teaching, workshopping, choreographing, or taking a new class around the Los Angeles area.  I love it.  All of it.  Pilates is an amazing workout for your core, alignment, flexibility, and overall body health.  It's a workout built on resistance training and it is so effective which is why it has been so expensive all this time.  Tia has opened a beautiful welcoming studio that is bright, positive, and inexpensive so most people now have an opportunity to get on the Pilates train.  She is a detail oriented teacher that watches every student in the room carefully making sure every exercise is catered toward their specific needs.  Brooke and I felt amazing when we left.  If I'm sore now I can't imagine what tomorrow is going to feel like!  Thank you Tia, so much love to you!

Brooke's Review -

I've been embarrassingly out of commission when it comes to working out. No I didn't tear an ACL or anything bad*ss. Instead I sit at a job all day which has thrown my hip flexors way out of whack and left my hammies super tight. I had done one personal Pilates session before but never in a group. Tia is a smartie because after her class I had some serious Love 4 Pilates. It made me stretch, feel lengthened and it really, really worked my stiff little hips. To the point where she asked me to lift my legs into a tabletop and my mind was totally doing it but my legs were definitely not moving. What I liked even more about the class is the intimate vibe. Tia is so very caring and makes sure each class member is in alignment and doing the moves properly. I left the class feeling very refreshed and a few hours later I was maybe a little bit sore. Okay definitely. Definitely sore. Loved it Tia! I'll be back soon!

We feel blissful!  I've already been back and can't wait for more.

Autumn in NYC...

wpid-Photo-Oct-18-2013-506-PM.jpg

I've been to New York in the winter, spring, summer, and this was my first time in the fall…

It was so dreamy...

I'm having post NYC trip disorder. It's true. I have loved New York since I first learned about New York as a wee little one. My childhood dream when I was just a mere ten years old was to be an optometrist during the day and a broadway star at night. I have always been very ambitious! :)

I've been fortunate enough to travel to NYC a few times a year for work and or play. This particular trip was a combination of the two which was ideal. Although, I did not end up becoming an eye doctor or a musical theatre performer I feel like the luckiest lady around that I get to do what I love everyday.

No matter where I travel to fitness is a part of my daily routine. And in New York City the fitness studios and class options seem endless. This particular trip I focused on my yoga practice and found some beautiful spots to do so.

I checked out Strala Yoga which is the wonderful, Tara Stiles, studio located in SOHO and loved the happy spirit of this space. It was light, bright, and welcoming! All the instructors have a positive and approachable presence which is really beautiful to walk into.

Jivamukti is a very traditional yoga studio located right near Union Square. Every instructor here has hours and hours of training and experience so you know you are in dynamic hands. The class I took had a beautiful flow, the transitions were seamless and although we held our poses for an extended length of time I really felt the energy and heard the breathe of all the students in the room which helped to center my focus. After class I ate at a delightful vegan cafe they have in the studio. The food was AMAZING! Even if you're not a yogi but you like to fill your body with healthy foods go to this vegan cafe, I highly suggest it!

mmm mmm good!

I also popped into a group pilates class and a Yogaworks studio which has locations all over the U.S.

When you are on the road and you don't necessarily have the time or income to pop into a class remember that BENNERFIT circuits are always there and available to you! YOU deserve feel your best! Making yourself a priority is not selfish at all but rather a necessity because when we feel our best we do a better job of being that for everyone around us.

I'll see you soon NYC!

Have a beautiful weekend Bennerfitter's!
