Pilates for Yoga®

Combining the best elements of Pilates, Yoga, and groundbreaking methods of nervous system release, Hallie Love’s Pilates for Yoga® offers fast results for optimal stretch, optimal core, and optimal fitness.

Hallie trains people who are ready to be in great shape from the inside-out. Her Pilates for Yoga®  system achieves results in a fraction of the time you would expect because it is:

  • More than Pilates: releasing torques that create pain, aligning all joints and the whole body, putting a laser focus on the right effort of core, and gaining overall strength and flexibility.
  • More than Yoga: using only safe postures that produce symmetry and freedom from pain. Plus, you will use and refine your core.
  • More than a Workout:  Pilates for Yoga®  is cross training for life, developing mind-body connectivity and core awareness for optimal functioning in everyday or athletic activities.

Optimal Stretch

ABAGatePilates for Yoga® helps correct neuro-musculo-skeletal imbalances and pain from prior injuries, stress, sports, or work-related activities with optimal stretch.

Students learn to balance the nervous system and they experiencefreedom from inner tensions. Additionally they practice breath techniques, mind-focus and alignment of all bones, muscles, and joints (the vertebrae, neck, shoulders, TMJ, hips, sacro-iliac joints, knees, ankles, and feet) which transforms outer rigidity into supple flexibility.

Testimonial - Pilates for Yoga

Mary Ann Lewis

I’m a woman well into the other half of her century. I spent many years hunched over a desk and computer as an engineer and educator while squeezing in running (later walking)/ hiking/skiing whenever possible.  My husband and I also did a great deal of construction work for about ten years together and found I was able to do less and less over the last 20 years with increasingly debilitating back pain.
