Personal Core Training

by

Jaime Barbiery

My session concentrates on your core abdominal muscles .I will show you simple, yet gentle and effective exercises for you that strengthen your balance abilities, focusing on being centered and straightened back posture.

Your core abdominals are the center of your mobility and flexibility. Core abdominal muscle groups are used routinely in every day activities - driving, walking, lifting, swiveling, and even dancing!

Having strong core abdominal muscles will let you be more active, healthier, and able to accomplish more in your overall exercise routine and in you’re daily life.

The research I have done indicates that as we age, the core muscles, the stomach, obliques and lower back, are going to support our upper body.  My easy yet effective sessions will strengthen these important core abdominal muscles. If using the services of a nutritionist, these exercises will greatly affect your waist.

Using lightweights, Pilates balls, non-strenuous exercises and other equipment, we will work as a team to ensure you reach your goals.

This Is Mexico

This is Mexico is a collection of essays on the often magical, mysterious and sometimes heartrending workings of everyday life in Mexico from the perspective of an American ex-patriate.  Merchasin's stories provide an informed look at Mexican culture and history exploring everything from healthcare to religious rituals, from the educational role of the telenovela to the cultural subtleties of the Spanish language.  

"This is a delightful book.  It made me ponder, smile, laugh out loud.  Merchasin's droll take on the unfamiliar and unlikely is a tonic, and she loves Mexico, and its people, as I do."  Alice Walker
