MELTed Yoga for Fall 2021

10 week program. All levels.
Learn both Yoga and MELT. Great for deconditioned bodies. Also for existing yoga lovers.  Deepen your Yoga practice with even more awareness and flexibility.  No pain or strain. Finally do that elusive yoga pose!

Learn how to use the foundational sequences and treatments to boost your body’s resilience and vitality and alleviate aches and pains. We address the hands, feet, legs, and hips as well as sequences that address the low back, upper back, neck, and spine.  There’s something for everyone in this foundational series.  You will need the MELT half roller and soft ball, available for purchase if you do not have, or use a rolled up yoga mat in a pinch.


MELT is not a myofascial lengthening or foam rolling technique. It is a neuro-fascial stabilization technique, bringing your nervous system regulators back on line for true stability, communication and feel good movement. Find out more about fascial fitness,  4th dimension of fitness, beyond bone and muscle and why you need to add it to your day!

MELT Neurostrength for Fall 2021

10 week program

Learn a powerful practice that can unlock better muscle timing, joint stability, and relief from neck, hip, and low back pain using performance-boosting NeuroStrength techniques. A great complement to your strength training sessions or for general toning. You will need the MELT roller and ball kits or in a pinch a rolled up yoga mat and your thumbs in place of the ball kit.
The moves look like gym exercises but you only do 4 reps after you learn how to tap into the proper neural pathway to keep the stability signal on. You are restoring the timing to the nervous system.

Pilates is power. Be inspired.

A strong core give you balance which in some cases can be death defying!

Get more from your core
Core strength has far-reaching benefits. For instance, significant weakness in core musculature may contribute to a forward head posture and an increase the upper back’s curvature, which can trigger neck and shoulder pain. Sore knee or hip? Core weakness can be the main contributor. Your core also is one of your biggest protectors from a back injury. Core strength is also crucial for fall prevention. “Our bodies constantly have to adapt not only to different surfaces, but different weighted loads,” says Eric L’Italien, a physical therapist with Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Rehabilitation Center. “Adequate core stability and strength can prepare you to better react to these changes and keep you from losing your balance and stumbling.”

The benefits of regular Pilates  are unmistakable. If you are unsure of where to begin contact us at. We are an integrative team of people to work with. With our amazing instructors and physiotherapist, your chances of success are stronger and they can help monitor your progress and modify your plan accordingly as your heart grows stronger, your body becomes more efficient and your stability comes back online. Pilates and fascia approaches are primarily stabilization work.  You must be stable in order to be mobile. If you need your doctor to prescribe exercise, please inform them about Pilates first before other exercise. Pilates stabilizes chronically sore, unstable people so you can move freely and without compensations and adaptations that will only accumulate faster and worse if you do not stabilize yourself first. Stability is not just balancing on a BOSU ball. You must stabilize your pelvis through your nervous system without straining your  soft, collagenous tissues or hurt your joints.

Mandatory Mask Usage stays in effect

In consultation with the instructors, physios, some clients, and a variety of health professionals, we have decided to keep mask usage mandatory at our studios. We will wait and see about the impact of mask removal in the public setting. We will wait to know more about the impact of the virulent COVID variants, and the opening of the Canadian border as well. We will follow the advice of predictive health model analysis. Pilates is a treatment under the umbrella of physiotherapy, which is under medical services, and thus, masks must be worn at all times. It is a requirement in the public areas of The Yoga Barre for those clients who access the Roblin studio. It is a requirement under the City of Winnipeg rules for those clients who are returning to our Transcona location (re-opens Thurs Sept 9). For these reasons and for reasonable monitoring, we are requesting all persons wear their mask at all times. Thank you very much.

intenSati Uplifting Exercise

July intenSati is about loving life as it is so that we can live a life we love, in a body we love and to love the life we’re consciously creating.The life we’re living and experiencing is based off of our self-concept and our self-concept is entirely within our control. What we say after the words “I AM”, becomes our self-concept and it’s our self-concept that becomes our identity and it’s our identity that drives our behavior. And when we say “I AM” we’re talking about the power, the presence of that one higher source within us.

Be incredibly mindful of the words you are placing after “I AM” . Be more mindful of your self-talk.

During class you’ll find an energizing cardio series that will allow you to upgrade your self-concept. You’ll also find a soulful Lower Body sequence designed to further help you connect to the I AM presence within you as well as a closing meditation that will help seal all of this month’s work in.

This month, what will you place after the words, “I AM”?


Watch your thoughts. They become words. Watch your words. They become actions. Watch your actions. They become habits. Watch your habits. They become character. Watch your character. It becomes your destiny

PILATES IS POWER

Last week we had tips 3 & 4. This week, we offer Tips 5 & 6.

5. Feeling Stronger


After as little as one month you muscle mass will begin to change as the fibres grow in response to the new workload. You’ll be able to manage your old workouts with ease, and day-to-day chores will start to become less taxing. You’ll be carrying the groceries or picking up your kids and grandchildren with ease. And speaking of chores, exercise itself won’t feel like one anymore as you will actually start looking forward to the challenge

6.Feeling confident

So you’ve been doing this exercise thing for some time now.  It’s simply part of what you do when you happily start your day. And that’s the key: happily. The mental benefits of ongoing exercise are long-standing. You’ll have improved self-esteem and increased confidence and your body will be better equipped to deal with life’s daily stresses. Your activity will be just another healthy habit, something you barely even think about anymore.
