What does wellness mean to you? Is it simply a matter of counting calories or just doing 'x' number of minutes or repetitions for exercise? While these things are important, there’s much more to wellness. Hello and Welcome! My name is Bridget McCarthy. Thank you for visiting my website, As Joseph Pilates said, “Breathing is the first act of life, and the last. Our very life depends on it “ Therefore, above all, learn how to breathe correctly.” Moving is the next requisite in maintaining life and supporting true health and wellness. Understanding what movement means - moving the body in harmony with the mind and emotions – provides a profound entry into the true experience of wellness.

This experience of wellness is always available to us as it resides within us, around us and in all things.
