Rising Phoenix Pilates is a completely private Pilates studio nestled in the heart of NYC’s West Village. Sessions are taught by me–Debbie Troche–a classically trained instructor with nearly ten years of teaching experience. Over the years I have taken a special interest in surgery/injury recovery, chronic health issues, as well as the unique experiences we face as we age. I was most recently certified as a Functional Aging Specialist. But don’t worry, I can also kick the butt of the fittest folks out there!
Why Rising Phoenix?
The phoenix is a magical bird that dies by bursting into flames only to rise, reborn from its own ashes. This symbolism has always resonated with me. There are so many things that happen in our lives that can send our self care into a fiery spiral. How many times have you looked at the calendar and counted in weeks, months or even years the last time you worked out? I believe that every day holds the opportunity for us to rise from the ashes of our past and be reborn into our future well being. It’s never too late to start over and you’re never too old to try something you’ve never done before.
Pilates is a low-impact full-body exercise system that helps strengthen your muscles in order to support your spine, stabilize your body and improve your posture. It is effective for people of all ages, sizes and physical capacity. At Rising Phoenix you will have the opportunity to work on the Pilates reformer, tower, mat and with props. (There might be some functional balance exercises thrown in too because none of us are getting any younger!) Whether you’ve never worked out a day in your life or are a seasoned athlete, Rising Phoenix is the place to get informative one-on-one training designed specifically for your body’s distinct needs.
