Don’t let stomach problems ruin the upcoming holidays! This time of year it seems like there is food everywhere. It is tempting to constantly graze, either out of boredom, stress, or actual hunger, which can cause the gut to rebel. Fortunately, there is a way around this for this Holiday Season and every day gut health.

Keep Calm and Trust your Gut poster. Adaptation of the famous World War Two motivational poster of Great Britain.

You have probably heard of Enzymes, however, there seems to be a good deal of confusion about why they are important to your digestive health. Digestive Enzymes assist in breaking down the food you eat so it can be absorbed at a cellular level. The pancreas will produce these enzymes when they are not present in the food we’re eating, so ingesting enzymes can off-load the burden on this organ.

Humans are the only animals that cook their food. Processing and cooking kills enzymes in food. The pancreas then has to produce very high quantities of digestive enzymes to make up for what’s missing. This can stress the pancreas over time and may take away from its other, primary function, which is to produce insulin. When we look at the drastic increase of Type 2 diabetes in the world we can deduce that not only are we consuming more sugar than ever before, the way our food is processed and they way we eat, can be burdening our digestive organs.

Enzyme deficiencies can also result in:

• Bloating
• Constipation
• Flatulence
• Heartburn
• Acid reflux
• Cramping

To make matters worse, our body’s ability to produce enzymes decreases with age!

The good news is that the body never wastes enzymes that are ingested and, we can replenish our enzyme levels with fresh fruits and vegetables and quality supplementation.  Small amounts of enzymes can affect profound changes!   

A good quality enzyme supplement can generally help to improve digestion and minimize discomfort related to digestion such as those listed above.  What is remarkable is how enzymes contribute to so many other activities crucial to how our body functions.  

In addition to what they do in the gut, here are some more activities in our body that require enzymes:

• Reducing inflammation
• Energy production
• Fighting infections and healing wounds
• Absorption of oxygen
• Dissolving blood clots
• Proper hormone regulation
• Slowing the aging process

Our next Enzyme blog will explore these activities in more depth as well about enzymes and probiotics.




We are excited to offer you our PRIVATE PARTY SERVICES!  

These packages are great for the Holidays and also for Birthday, Bachelorette & Bridal Parties.  We will come to you or you can book it at the Studio!

Playhouse Pilates has been built largely on the referrals of our clients with family, friends and colleagues and over the years we have been asked to host Private Parties both in our Studio and on-site at private clubs or homes at the request of our clients, but it is not something we have officially offered until now!!

Our Philosophy has always been to empower our community to learn and practice the self-care and conditioning techniques that our Programs and Products offer in their daily lives on their own, because this maximizes their time and money investment in training and learning with us – it’s just common sense.

Here are some of the Private Party ideas that we want to offer you, and you are free to create your own custom concept too!  A Party is a gathering in of 3-10 people.

Heels for the Holidays!  

We want to feel and look our best when out at Holiday gatherings with family or work and we often opt to wear footwear that is out of our normal heel range because of the time of year and the festivity!  But, ouch!  It can backfire and the pain is too high a price to pay, so often we opt for the sensible shoes that we can tolerate, but we miss being able to just wear what we want to wear!!  Enter:  Heel-ology!  

This 2-hour Heel-ology Party is based on exclusive Services and Products at Playhouse Pilates.  

Heel-ology is unique blend of Yamuna Foot Fitness, tools and techniques; Pilates principles and concepts; as well as exceptional foot care products including Essential oil blends, invigoration gels and soothing creams.

Benefits include: Improved Posture; foot comfort and understanding of self-care protocols.

 – Each participant will get a personalized assessment.  Bring your heels with you!
