About Brooke Brooke Williams Howard was first introduced to mat Pilates for strength and conditioning as a young ballet dancer. In 2003, she began regularly practicing Pilates on equipment at Castle Hill, and this is where her love of connection of mind, body, and spirit through movement began. The Pilates studio felt like a home-away-from home, so she fulfilled her dream in completing the Peak Pilates Comprehensive certification to begin teaching. Brooke is currently continuing her education through the 18-month “Discover*Move*Inspire” post-comprehensive teacher program.

Sharing the benefits of classical Pilates with for clients in all ages and stages of life motivates Brooke. She loves that clients always leave a session feeling better than when they arrived. Her personal favorite workout is mat work, but the Wunda Chair holds a special piece of her heart. Brooke’s greatest joys in life are her two daughters, Ruth and Rebecca, and she is grateful to be able to follow her two passions, being their Mom and a Pilates trainer.

 

Functional Range Conditioning For You

with Anna Gieselman

Join CHF Yoga teacher, and certified FRA and FRC Mobility Specialist, Anna Gieselman for a 10-week personalized program to condition your joints.

We begin with an in-person full-body Functional Range Assessment that will identify limitations within the mobility and strength of your joints and surrounding tissues. Following your assessment, you will receive weekly virtual Functional Range Conditioning training sessions designed specifically to expand your active range of motion, strengthen your joints, and give you more neurological control of your body.

This type of joint training often results in a reduction of injury and serves to make you stronger in your body so you can do the activities you love. In addition to the assessment and virtual training, will also receive a recording of each 60-minute session to watch and practice at home at your convenience.

If a 10-week commitment is too much for you, this work can also be used to address specific joint issues on an “as needed” basis. In that case, the practice would be more of a spot-treatment and would not include a full body assessment.

“My balance, flexibility and strength continue to improve. I’m 72 and love the benefits. Thank you Anna!” - Abigayle L., CHF member since 2010
