The Story of JPilates Aroma Blends

Contrology (Pilates) is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit
I am always struck when I teach or do Pilates, how it is so much more than a physical form of exercise- it is a complete, immersive experience of the mind, body and soul. We can connect to ourselves on deep emotional and spiritual levels, outside of our everyday challenges and distractions.
I believe the true power of Pilates is not just that it helps us to be stronger and move more efficiently, but that it appeals and connects us to our emotions, thoughts and feelings. It can help us find clarity, peace, gratitude, energy and acceptance.
It is not just the exercises themselves but the environment we create- the space, lighting and of course, the smell, and this brings me to why I have created, exclusively for you, the JPilates Aroma Blends.
Our range of Aroma Blends allows you to harness the incredible benefits of using essential oils to create a complete sensory experience in your classes. Choose the JPilates Aroma Blend best suited to the environment you wish to create for your clients, the time of day or the time of year. You can use the Aroma Blends to enhance feelings of calm, safety and gratitude, to energise, invigorate and awaken.

The Power of Essential Oils
Essential Oils have been used for centuries to enhance physical & emotional health. Smell, emotion and memory are deeply intertwined. Using essential oils activates the smell receptors which are directly linked to the brain’s limbic system. The limbic system affects our emotions, memory, learning and appetite.

The Benefits of using Essential Oils in your classes
  • Help manage pain
  • Improve focus, invigorate the senses & increase energy levels
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Improve sleep quality & boost relaxation
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Help improve quality of life for those suffering with conditions such as dementia & Alzheimers

    Our aroma blends are expertly created by The Well School exclusively for JPilates.
    I have often used essential oils during Pilates sessions to harness the evocative and emotional power of smell and enhance a complete sensory experience for clients, but I wanted to create blends which truly reflected the ethos and beliefs of Joseph Pilates. Inspired by his words and initially the four seasons, I wrote down emotions, words and colours which are brought to mind. I shared these with Caren, only one person I knew who would understand, develop and share my enthusiasm and passion!

    The Well Retreat & The Well School are founded by Caren who I first met when she trained with me to be a Pilates teacher. The Well School offers a fully comprehensive aromatherapy course, and also focuses on the therapist’s well-being and an ongoing programme of professional development courses.

    Caren’s expertise and experience in aromatherapy has brought to life the blends, and created products using the highest quality of ingredients.
