Give Your Body Extra Love + Benefits of Chlorophyll

Spring is in full bloom and flowering into a beautiful month of pilates. Welcome to the April Powerhouse Pilates newsletter, featuring the latest studio news, great health tips and more.

Why to Eat More Chlorophyll

What is it that makes leafy greens so incredibly nourishing for your body? Part of it is due to the chlorophyll they contain. Chlorophyll is a green pigment that’s crucial in the process of transforming the sun’s light into energy in plants. Turns out it has great benefits for humans, too!

Chlorophyll-rich foods extend beyond leafy greens like kale and spinach. Other foods rich in this powerful pigment include fresh herbs, matcha green tea, wheatgrass, seaweed, spirulina, pistachios and green vegetables and fruits such as peas, grapes and asparagus. Here are some of chlorophyll’s major benefits that help improve our bodies’ functions.

  • Fights Cancer: Chlorophyll protects against many carcinogens in the air and restricts the absorption of harmful toxins in the body. It’s also extremely high in antioxidants and has been shown to decrease the risk of certain cancers.
  • Detoxifies the Body: An increase in oxygen and healthy blood flow encourages toxic chemicals and heavy metals to naturally flush out of the body. This helps detox and purify the liver.
  • Boosts Immunity: Chlorophyll prevents the growth of bacteria and increases the production of white blood cells. It encourages the body’s ability to fight diseases and has been proven to speed up healing.
  • Eliminates Odors: Bad breath and Candida albicans (an infection often responsible for bad breath) are no match against chlorophyll. It’s an effective remedy in eliminating these odors and improving overall digestion.

Join Us for Our Deep Stretching UNWIND Class!

Stretching out your muscles is a simple act that can make a big impact on your health. Regular stretching has been shown to decrease anxiety and depression, reduce pain levels, reduce blood pressure, improve blood flow and increase longevity.

Before a long, busy week, we all need some TLC and there’s no better way than our UNWIND class! We focus on “feel good” exercises and relaxing breathing, so you’ll be sure to walk out feeling relaxed and restored. Join us every Sunday at 11:30 am. Hope to see you there!

Try Out Different Instructors

Let’s state the obvious: All of our instructors at Powerhouse Pilates are amazing. We love them all! And we’re sure you have your favorites. But why not branch out and take a class by a different instructor you’ve never tried before? Each one is incredibly talented and brings their own uniqueness and enthusiasm, so you might just be surprised!

In pilates, you have many opportunities to grow in those ways. When you stay committed to the work, we know you’ll see great results and reach your goals!

Our Cancellation Policy

We know life can get crazy. Sometimes you reserve a spot in a class, but the day comes and you can’t make it. (Sad!) Keep in mind that we have a 12-hour cancellation policy. This policy gives you a buffer and makes sure we can have the most students in class as possible and keeps your pilates time a priority.

As a reminder — if you have an Unlimited Membership and cancel less than 12 hours before class, you’ll be charged $11 and if you’re a no-show, you’ll be charged $15. Anyone else without a membership will lose that class. Thank you for respecting this important policy y’all!
