Mind and Body Connection

Mind and Body Connection

Dolly Kelepecz does

things differently

when

it comes to fitness

training.  Just

visit her

DK Balancing,

Pilates

by Dolly studio and

you will be

pleasantly surprised.  Dolly explains, “Pilates is based

on a Pilates foundation but each instructor has their own twists

and ideas.  With my extensive training in several fitness

programs and a physical therapy background,

I morphed all these theories

together into

making a type of

workout that is best

for the body.

First Pilates builds

your strength then

you should use

Gyrotonic

equipment.  I am also Gyrotonic certified using exercises which

employ movements found in swimming, yoga, gymnastics and

tai chi.  The Gyrotonic expansion equipment has so many

moving parts providing all kinds of movement.  Since it is three-

dimensional you move in circles.  If you like yoga, you will like

this.  The approach

of the equipment is

spine and pelvic

based.

Because of Pilates’

mind and

bodyconnection

with deep

breathing just like

yoga, these different

breadth patterns create relaxation and stress relief.

We also have stress counseling and

massage services.  This is a one stop shop!

We offer a complimentary consultation along with a

complimentary exercise session to introduce you to my DK Body

Balancing Method.  Each new client is evaluated as an individual

because they all have different needs.  I do not rubber stamp

exercises for everyone.

Whenever you

exercise and eat

right, you feel

better.  Pilates is

health based, any

time you partake in

any physical activity

your

body changes.  Pilates works on secondary muscle groups.  The

movement or exercises are distributed evenly and the joints are

being stabilized by the smaller muscles so there is less stress on

the joints.   This is especially recommended for women 50 and

over because their bodies start to have hormone and sleep

changes.

The Reformer Pilates table is the most recognized of all of the

Pilates equipment.  It can be changed around to be adapted into

100’s and 100’s of exercises for so many things.   You can face

forward, face backward, stand on the box, and sit on the box.

If a client is not used to doing a lot of exercises, he/she cannot

just crank it up on the equipment, the client needs a qualified

instructor.

    Bookmarked.

  4. Anthony Reemer says:

    I’ve got to make the comment that it’s quite good to uncover a ‘different’ blog like this, great effort. I expect I’ll be visiting again soon and I’ll be keeping an eye out for your next comment then.

  5. Jon Quincel says:

    What an interesting site, very happy I found it. I’ll definitely let my my buddies about this site & revisit soon.

  6. Silton says:

    Most of whatever you say is astonishingly accurate and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this in this light before. This piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes. However there is just one issue I am not too comfortable with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of your point, permit me see just what all the rest of your readers have to point out. Well done.

Mind and Body Connection (Continued)

Dolly demonstrated some of her exercises on the trapeze as she held on hanging her body upside down.  "This is a rehabilitation piece with no moving parts.  Pilates is all about symmetry and balance. 

We perform exercises that train both sides of the body, because of habit, a person sits more on the right or left side, and uses one arm more than the other.


I usually sit at my computer all day but decided to try the reformer table.  Exercising while sitting on the box seemed easier than I expected, while Dolly instructed me with my breathing and movements.  I did not have trouble pulling the cable although later Dolly mentioned she did not use heavy springs on mine.

Dolly brought me into her mat and ball room, "The summer incentive for classes is super inexpensive ONLY $7 each or 10 at less than $5 each."


Dolly was the first person to bring Pilates to Las Vegas, in 1987.  She trademarked her own method of instruction called D.K. Body Balancing Method, in 1997. Dolly has traveled throughout the United States, Mexico, Japan and Korea certifying others in the D.K. Body Balancing Method.

Dolly Kelepecz has been a professional dancer for

over thirty years. She danced with the Los Angeles Ballet, Nevada Dance Theatre, Zurich Opera Ballet, Houston Ballet, Circus Knie and was the lead singer and dancer at the famed Lido Show at the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas. Dolly also founded her own dance company the Opus Dance Ensemble. She is currently a part time faculty member with the U.N.L.V. Dance Department where she teaches both Ballet and Pilates. The U.N.L.V. Dance Department has included Dolly's pilates classes as part of the curriculum required for dance majors to graduate.  In 2008 she was recognized as the Part-Time Instructor of the Year.
