You can take classes and do exercises that don’t have anything to do with real life activities and movement; but what if you could practice and strengthen movements you actually perform each day?
Lone Tree, Colorado (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Park Meadows Pilates & Physical Therapy announces its Grand Re-Opening- Friday, September 6, 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. Showcasing Metro Denver’s only CoreAlign® and Balanced Body Barre classes, this South Denver Pilates Studio offers optimal core training for performance athletes and everyday Living.
CoreAlign® and Balanced Body Barre™ classes take Pilates exercises normally performed lying down and move them into a standing format translating them to daily life.
“How are you doing out there, in the real world?” asks Lindy Royer, Park Meadows Pilates & Physical Therapy’s Founder and Director.
“You can take classes and do exercises that don’t have anything to do with real life activities and movement; but what if you could practice and strengthen movements you actually perform each day?”
“Since the Pilates industry is unregulated, some Pilates studios train their instructors in only a week. Our teachers complete a comprehensive teacher training program and are certified through the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance). They undergo 500 hours of mandatory course work and apprenticeship in a minimum one year program,” says Royer.
Royer points out this certification is voluntary and that in addition to their extensive Pilates training, her instructors are experienced in a variety of disciplines, including physical therapy, Franklin Method and Gyrotonic.
“You trust your mechanic to take care of your car, but your body has to last a lifetime. Our clients know they can trust us to take care of their bodies for the long run,” says Royer.

Royer’s studio is Denver’s exclusive host site for Core Align® instructor training.
CoreAlign® revolutionizes core training and functional movement by allowing the participant to exercise while standing.
Physical therapist, Jonathan Hoffman, created the machine to help improve functional movement, posture and balance. Utilizing a vertical plane on what looks like a wooden ladder with adjustable straps, movable plates and various elastic resistance bands, people simulate everyday and athletic movement more easily and realistically. For those with neck and other body injuries it’s a great alternative to the standard Pilates reformer.
According to Balanced Body, the company behind CoreAlign®, these exercises facilitate musculoskeletal rehabilitation and strengthening by stimulating core stability muscles to fire in perfect timing while performing challenging exercises, very deep stretches and core-controlled aerobic training.
Balanced Body Barre™
According to Balanced Body, the company behind Balanced Body Barre™, this non-impact workout set to lively music burns fat, and creates long, lean muscles, maximizing form and detail.
"Not all Barre programs are safe for everyone. I love the Balanced Body Barre™ approach because that it emphasizes safety, optimal alignment and body awareness while keeping the fun and energy of a Barre workout. Our goal is to elevate the fun factor and allow our Denver clients to experience the Pilates philosophy in a completely new way,” says Royer.
Royer is an Australian trained Physiotherapist, licensed in Colorado; a PMA Certified Pilates Practitioner; a Balanced Body Education Faculty Member; an Advanced Neuro-Structural Integration Practitioner and a Level II Franklin Method Educator.
“What’s going on between your ears is just as important as what’s going on in your body. When utilizing Core Align®, Balanced Body Barre™ and our other training modalities we help you find your ideal body-mind alignment through visualization and relatable image cues to help you know where you are in space when you’re not in front of a mirror or in here with an instructor. After all, you are operating your own hard drive,” says Royer.
Park Meadows Pilates and Physical Therapy helps people discover ideal body-mind alignment to resolve pain, live with energy and vitality, and do more of what they love.
This customized approach integrates research-based science with whole-body movement, leveraging the disciplines of Physical Therapy, Pilates, fitness, rehabilitation, bio mechanics and energy medicine - along with their new Grand Re-Opening launch of CoreAlign® and Balanced Body Barre™ classes - to help patients be more vital and productive.
