Now that we are fully in summer mode, let's talk sunscreen. There's a lot of conflicting information about sunscreen as well as sun exposure out there. No matter who you trust, or what you believe - you probably want to avoid a sunburn.
Here is the link to the Environmental Working Group's 2018 Guide to Sunscreens. (click here)
It is free. In addition to their guide, they have some helpful tips as well as useful search tools.
Do you feel good about the sunscreen you use? Last year, I used their list to try a few brands for my trip to Hawaii. Even though I live in AZ, I'm pretty pale, burn easily, and have very sensitive skin. I found some great products, I especially liked those by Goddess Garden. Luckily, I timed it right and got them during the 25% off sale at Sprouts.
Do you have a favorite sunscreen? Feel free to share below!
I became a Pfilates certified instructor in April 2018. I really love the concepts and the results they are giving my clients and myself! I have been using the Pfilates repertoire as well as applying the principles to many other exercises in my group classes and private lessons.
I’m getting awesome feedback and look forward to exploring new ways to share and integrate the work.
What is Pfilates?
The Pfilates program was created by Dr Bruce Crawford to provide a more effective alternative to current options for pelvic floor conditioning. Like any other fitness program, success relies upon consistency and ongoing attention.
How can it help me?
Dr. Crawford asserts that bladder control is a fitness issue. His respected research and documented results prove the success of this method. Check out his website by clicking here.
Are you experiencing incontinence, increased frequency, or urgency to urinate? Do you feel like you’d like to get up fewer times at night to urinate? Do you find yourself constantly making sure you know where the restrooms are? Do you want some help, but feel like these symptoms are just part of aging or you’re too embarrassed to ask? Have you tried other methods and been left disappointed or frustrated?
What are the statistics for improvement? There has been a documented 74% improvement in subjective bladder symptoms (urgency, frequency, incontinence) within a 4-6 week period.
Once you get the coordination and awareness to effectively & efficiently recruit your pelvic floor and the appropriate co-contractors, it can improve your overall fitness level. Many of my students have been responding very positively and feeling like they are getting more bang for their buck in their workouts. Our sessions or classes seem more intense, and they are experiencing obvious gains in their strength, balance, and coordination.
What are the benefits of doing Pfilates focused private lessons with Pippa?
We will assess your beginning point and strategize your plan. There are many options, it is simply a matter of deciding what will work best for you.
- You could start taking private Pilates sessions with me where we integrate the Pfilates work into each session in order to review, fine tune, and adapt your home practice as needed. You’ll receive consistent feedback, encouragement, and opportunities to ask questions.
- You could also come in once at the beginning of your program. You would receive specialized cueing, pick the 3 Pfilates exercises for your daily practice, and create some accountability measures to ensure your success. You would then work on your daily practice for few weeks on your own, and we'd re-check and adjust as needed every 4-6 weeks.
- You could buy the official Pfilates kit with helpful tools & resources, or simply add exercises as a daily practice and track symptoms or improvement on your own. (click here)

For those of you who don’t know- my sweet, old boy Winnie passed away in early April. It was sudden & swift, but I was there with him.
He was such a wonderful presence in my life and taught me so much about unconditional love, living fully in the moment, & pure joy in the simple things. Here is a picture of him expertly demonstrating pandiculation, which I highly encourage you to try right now!

“When we lose our tolerance for vulnerability, joy becomes foreboding.”
Vulnerability is terrifying for most of us.
How do we soften into it so that we get to feel all the good stuff?
In the video, they suggest an active gratitude practice. (here’s a post on gratitude)
