- Reading ingredients labels
- Cutting out chemicals, fillers, gums and preservatives- a must, I guarantee, you will change your body! Check your almond milk, those fillers and preservatives, they swell the intestine and force your body to expel water. Most are not easy digested by folks with a normal digestive system, let alone people with sensitive or tough to manage stomachs.
- Eat foods in their natural form. Less jars, boxes and bags, more skins and peels.
- Moving your body as much as possible. Walking when possible. Taking the stairs, standing up- get off of the chair during the Zoom meetings.
- Find a workout that you enjoy, of course and try to try and do a little bit every single day!
Olivia began her Pilates journey at the age of nine as a supplement to her ballet training at Festival Ballet Providence. Having been introduced to Pilates at such a young age in conjunction with her formal ballet education nurtured a solid foundation for her understanding of how the body moves. Pilates over the years has been an essential element in strength and endurance training as well as a way of preventing and recovering from injuries throughout Olivia’s career as a professional ballet dancer.
Olivia danced with Festival Ballet Providence, now Ballet RI, for five years before joining the North Atlantic Ballet where she is currently in her third season. Olivia has also spent a number of years as a children’s division ballet director at Ballet Prestige in RI and is now a childrens and adult ballet teacher at the North Atlantic Ballet. Her love of teaching and experience with movement inspired her to begin her Pilates instructor training in 2023. Olivia feels very lucky to be able to share her love of movement with the community at Endurance Pilates. She hopes to foster a welcoming environment within her classes with a focus on proper body alignment and to share her appreciation of the power of simplicity in Pilates.
