If the mind is a terrible thing to waste, the body is a terribler thing to waste. Preserve the most important bodily aspects with today's deal: for $39, you get two private Pilates or Gyrotonic sessions at Mind 2 Body in Sherman Oaks (a $150 value).
Mind 2 Body is a health-centric operation that implements environmentally conscious practices within its facility and employs experts to motivate and encourage students to become fitter, more balanced versions of themselves. Each 50-minute private session is tailored to the client's exercising needs to help relieve tight tendons or sports injuries while focusing on proper techniques and form. Embrace an equipment-assisted Pilates session designed to build proper alignment while delivering an intense workout for core strength and flexibility. More traditional Pilatesers can rely on the resistance of the human body to forge a deep-burning workout and a heartfelt connection to the floor during a Pilates mat session.
The Gyrotonic sessions commit the body to natural flows and rhythms using stools, mats, and the floor to open up energy and soothe oxygen back into the entire system, all this while making the back a straighter, happier creature. Complexify and intensify those workout principles by wrapping hands around the resistance cables of the imposing pulley tower that opens the physique and lengthens limbs while increasing strength. Choose to mix and match the two body-bolstering sessions or stick to the session that shows the most core-rigidifying love.
Mind 2 Body
Lani Pelino discovered Pilates as a means to help her condition her body for dancing as she studied at Ohio University. Later, during an apprenticeship with The Atlanta Ballet, she completed her Pilates' teacher certification and opened Mind 2 Body as a venue for students to build healthy, powerful muscles without risking injury. As she continued to teach, she incorporated yoga, gyrotonics, and ballet-barre-based exercise into her studio's repertoire.
Now, joined by a dozen other instructors, Lani inducts beginners into the gratifying world of exercise, helps long-term athletes improve their skills, and even certifies teachers looking to bring the workouts to their own students. Lit by sunbeams splashing through a large front window, her green studio honors the earth with organic cleaning equipment, reusable bamboo towels, and studio mats manufactured without the use of PVCs, chloride, or the labor of indentured squirrels.
