In case you haven't met Steph in class, she is our client corner highlight this month. In case you haven’t met Steph in class, she is our client corner highlight this month.

Stephanie Tishler’s positive energy is infectious.  With a warm smile she tells me how her relationship with Personal Euphoria began over 6 years ago when she started taking mat classes in Glastonbury. She was part of the original Glastonbury group.  Within that time she also began taking weekly privates with Maggie.  “Without it I don’t feel the same” she says.  Tishler is a big believer in carving out time for yourself through exercise.  In addition to her Pilates practice, she is an avid runner. As a busy mom of two, who also runs her own business, exercise gives Stephanie space to clear her head.

Stephanie didn’t always know that she wanted to run her own business. The idea first came from something she wrote down on a napkin. She was at dinner with a friend who was looking for advice about running her business. As she listened to her friend talk, Stephanie wrote down exactly what she thought her friend […]

Client Corner: Katy Hall on Feet & Firewalking

“My cousin and I were always rubbing each other’s feet when we were younger,” Katy Hall reminisces.

Many years later, Katy found herself treating her clients to a foot rub after their facials and she soon realized what a great addition it was to the services she offered. Katy was officially bit by the reflexology bug.

Reflexology uses therapeutic essential oils while applying pressure to the feet through a variety of techniques. These techniques claim to dissipate energy blocks within organs and systems and breakdown crystalline structures within the body. Stimulating the circulatory lymphatic systems, electro chemical energy, and the body’s natural immune system helps encourage the release of toxins and enables the body to heal itself.

While there are mixed reviews as to whether or not the claims reflexology makes are true, and some studies may be flawed, the University of Minnesota, compiled a list of studies that do seem to show there may be benefits to organs and the rest of the body.  Studies have shown an impact on organs, a decrease in pain, blood pressure and other symptoms, and an increase in relaxation.  Ultimately, no matter what […]

Client Corner: Pilates Powering Irish Step

When Katie Dudley was five years old, her mother encouraged her to take Irish dance lessons, just as she and Katie’s grandmother had done. Initially, Katie was against the idea, until she began classes and fell in love.

When asked what finally drew her in, Katie mentioned, “There is so much I love about Irish step.  First of all, the counting can really help you with music and math.  It also improves your posture, stamina, and flexibility.  When you do Irish step dancing, your teacher can also introduce you to other styles of dance like tap, jazz, and ballet which also improve your technique.  You are also introduced to many new people and can make friendships that will last a lifetime.”

Katie’s passion for Irish Step also led her to Pilates. During a summer dance camp, which she’s attended for the past five years, Katie did Pilates for an hour each day. Recently, she began taking private lessons with Personal Euphoria in Wethersfield to continue to enhance her Irish Step.

Pilates focuses on lengthening the muscle while it is engaged and under load (eccentric contractions), which […]
