I deeply believe in the transformative power of Joseph Pilates original method. Return to Life through Contrology was my lived experience as I recovered from a prolonged cancer illness using the Pilates method, under the instruction and guidance of Tanis Fleming. Regaining connection to body, self and soul is indeed returning to a life full of vitality and purpose.
When working with the Pilates method I am attentive to brain/body connections as they manifest in the body and the often dysfunctional movement patterns of the musculoskeletal system. When I am with a client, I enjoy helping them work from where they are at in their body and in their present circumstances. Working from that point, I see my role as facilitating connectivity from the deeper muscular layers outwards, building the functionality of the core that then supports all daily activities and chosen recreational pursuits, in addition to the underlying goal of expanding personal awareness and transformation.
As a retired physician I maintain an active interest in neuroscience and am currently studying somatic psychotherapy, both of which inform my work. I am also involved in community work in a variety of venues. I am an avid river walker and meditator. I love to write as a hobby and read obsessively. I am transitioning from the world of medicine to the world of Pilates and in this I have found a new home.
What Clients have to say about Corinne:
Corinne is an excellent instructor. She has taken me deeper into Pilates, and has helped me to be able to complete more difficult movements while also incorporating grace and flow. Corinne also brings understanding and perspective regarding mental health issues into her lesson plans and in-session coaching. I can personally attest to her skills and breadth of knowledge and highly recommended working with her.
