Make it Happen March Event

Welcome March, spring, sunshine, and warmer days! The word spring has many meanings, but one of many reasons I love spring, is it's meaning for elasticity and resilience. Resilience is something to pride yourself of with every winter you make it through. Winter can have many warm and positive aspects, but can be very difficult and challenging for the psyche, thus testing our ability to be resilient, keep up good habits, and maintain a positive attitude. When spring finally comes around, it feels good to applaud myself for my resiliency of getting through another winter, as you should too! Not only does spring test how strong we are, but it also brings ideas of springtime, its many beautiful colors, smells, and opportunities that can rejuvenate us from a long winter!

Our Make It Happen March event is great time to spring into action, check out Green Leaf Pilates and Wellness Studio, ask questions, receive great discounts to help you spring yourself forward, and to allow us to be a support system to help you with your goals! Check out the Flyer below for more details! Can't make it to the event, but want to take advantage of the great deals? Sign up for package online on March 12th (one day only) and use PROMO CODE: MAKEITMARCH

Hope to see you there!

Warm Regards,

Green Leaf Pilates & Wellness Studio Team

Heather Weaver {BIO}

From running circles around my living room as a little kid, to spring-board diving in high school, I have always enjoyed being active!

I spent most of my life in Bellbrook, from pre-school through high school. I danced for eight years at Bellbrook Dance Academy, was in gymnastics for 5 years, played softball for 4 years, a year of volleyball and cross-country, and 4 years of spring-board diving to name a few. There were only a few sports I didn't try. I enjoyed meeting different people, while learning and challenging myself with different skills. 

Although I had oodles of energy, I didn't quite understand the nutrition end of things. I now joke about how I could eat (when challenged) quite a bit of food (i.e. large Papa Johns pizza by myself or 7 soft tacos from Taco Bell), but I paid a pretty price for that eating behavior when I was diagnosed with cholecystitis, or gallbladder disease 2001. My nutritional pitfalls are what lead me to try alternative and healthy options, but my learning didn't end there and quiet frankly, won't end until I die. I had several other health complications that continued to push me in understanding a very important practice which I work on everyday. I like to call it....drumroll please..... BALANCE!

To this day, I try my darndest to understand and implement balance in my life. From taking what's bad, hard, or difficult in life to help me understand whats good, and what things to be grateful for, to eating foods that help my body thrive, while still eating foods that feed my soul :) I try to appreciate balance wherever possible.

Personal experience isn't what I base my teachings from, but more to help me understand some of the emotional, as well as physical barriers, we embark on to live a healthier lifestyle.

My education includes an Associates of Applied Science for both Exercise Science and Dietetics from Sinclair Community College. I received my Dietetic Technician Registration with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and shortly after became a Certified Personal Trainer through National Council on Certifying Personal Trainers. My Pilates journey began back in grade school with Winsor Pilates videos in my basement and continued into college. Since then, I have had many years of personal practice in various forms of Pilates, but spent the last year learning the Stott Pilates repertoire, which is what I will be receiving my certification in and teaching at our studio.
