I started my dance career at a young age and continued as a Professional dancer for 30 years, along with a BA and MFA in Dance which lead me to a Advanced Pilates Certification . The passion of what movement does for the body lead me to study additional modalities to enhance and add to my list of certifications. Opening my Pilates/Dance business, Studio Kinetics, allows me to share my knowledge and expertise with clients of all ages and skill levels. My goal is to provide personal mind/body awareness and an understanding of the importance of exercise, proper form, and function to reshape and transform movement patterns for a healthy, injury-free, optimal performance body.
The personal Pilates regimes have facilitated healing for many of my clients recovering from knee and back surgeries/fusions, physical ailments, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, breast cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
I have worked with professional athletes to sustain and improve their optimal performance ~ Olympic Trinidad Athletes, Professional NFL Players (Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texan), Dancers, Gymnasts, and Baseball Players.
I am committed and dedicated to accomplishing goals for anyBODY by designing proper regimes and effective formats. The benefits are to improve movement patterns for achieving proper posture, whole-body strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, and flexibility

Upgrade Your Hotel Room Workout With Sliding Discs!
by Wendy Ellis
Give the resistance band a rest—and upgrade your hotel room workout with sliding discs! Using push/pull concepts, this dynamic series will challenge your entire body, anywhere your wanderlust may land you.
Whenever I travel, I find that movement is an important element in keeping my mind and body happy and connected. Although the resistance band is a useful tool for on-the-go exercise, I wanted to find an interesting new way to mimic the Reformer exercises and add challenge to the matwork.
Enter sliders, which facilitate convenient, low-impact exercise for your joints, while increasing the intensity of your basic workout. These discs also create an unstable surface to add a balance challenge. Not to mention they’re easy to pack!
This do-anywhere workout, with concepts rooted in push/pull principles as well as basic mat and Reformer movements, focuses on each body part to provide a full-body connection. It’s a safe, effective approach to strengthening and lengthening regions of the abdominals, legs, arms, shoulder girdle and spine.
So whether you’re traveling for some vitamin sea, to ski or somewhere in between, don’t forget to throw in a pair of sliders…and the following pages, of course!
WARM-UP: ROUND/EXTENDED BACK
BRING THIS WITH YOU BECAUSE IT…
Awakens the abdominals.
Mobilizes and articulates the spine.
Engages the shoulder girdle and hips.
Stretches the feet posteriorly.
START Begin in a quadruped position with your hands on the sliders and feet flexed. Make sure that your weight is equally distributed, with your wrists under your shoulders and knees hip-width apart under your hips.
MOVE Inhale as you pull the sliders toward your knees, rounding your spine. Exhale as you push the sliders forward into a V position, sliding your shoulders down your back, opening from your sternum and lengthening your neck while you lift your abdominals. Do 4–6 reps.
TIPS To increase the stretch in your lower back, move your sit bones closer to your heels while pulling the sliders with a rounded spine. You can also work with the tops of your feet on the floor, to change the nature of the foot stretch.
MODIFICATION Decrease your range of motion, and/or place a mat under your knees for cushioning.
ADVANCED Push the sliders further away or into a wider V with an extended back for a greater challenge and stretch, just make sure to keep your abdominal wall active throughout.
ARMS: SINGLE-ARM CIRCLES
BRING THIS WITH YOU BECAUSE IT…
Engages the abdominals to support the spine.
Stretches and strengthens the shoulder girdle and arms.
START Same as Round/Extended Back.
MOVE Inhale as you push one slider away from your shoulder, keeping your elbow slightly bent. Exhale as you pull the slider to the side, in and under your shoulder, to complete an arm circle. Do 3 reps, then repeat to the other direction. Repeat the entire sequence on your opposite side.
TIP Allow your bodyweight (ribs and pelvis) to follow the arm circle.
