Workplace Pilates & Fitness Programs

(Excerpt from recent NPR piece on Wellness Programs)

Stress has long been shown to increase the risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes and a number of mental health problems.

And a recent poll finds that a substantial number of working adults say stress is a critical health issue they face at work. 

So what are employers doing about it? 

...Wellness Programs can go a long way toward creating an environment that promotes health and reduces stress — thereby helping a company's bottom line.

"There's a recognition that the cost of burnout — either in the form of lower productivity or, in extreme cases, the loss of employees — is more costly" than taking steps to reduce stress..."

Pilates Bio 

Stephanie Ellison has studied and taught dance and movement most of her life. She began teaching Pilates in 2000, was certified at Performing Arts Physical Therapy and The Pilates Studio of LA, and has since studied with various instructors, including Romana Kryzanowska.  Stephanie has taught for numerous studios and has worked with professional performers and athletes, as well as those brand new to the Pilates Method, including volunteer teaching for the Boys and Girls Club.

Exploring creative play as exercise led Stephanie to study circus arts and eventually establish a Pilates studio at Bumbershoot Aerial Arts in St. Louis, where she also taught under the Dance Department at Washington University.  Having returned to Los Angeles, Stephanie continues her search of how to have a fun-moving, better-tasting, fashionable balance for living every day well. She is currently the Pilates trainer for the Los Angeles Athletic Club, intrigued by synchronized swimming, and enjoys walking in LA.

art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless
