Pilates

I'm reminded Pilates is a lifestyle; not just an exercise method to practice a couple times a week. I agree with Joseph Pilates ideal of a balanced lifestyle. It's not complicated. Value your health, your mind, your body and spirit. Let's live Pilates and experience "the ecstasy of living".

Mat Pilates

To an outside observer, a mat Pilates class may seem pretty harmless. Most mat exercises are performed on your back or your tummy without any equipment. Every mat Pilates move, however, depends on principles such as concentration, control, fluidity, breath and balance. Through a strong mind-body connection, your muscles become toned and you improve your overall ability to execute coordinated movements. Specific to mat exercises is the fact they are proven most helpful to people with back care issues.

Chair Pilates

Chair is a little secret that is still gaining ground with the reformer folks.  You can achieve a full body workout,  just utilizing the chair.  If you've never tried it, you are welcome to explore it with me.  It's more fun that you might think.

TRX

Total Body Resistance Exercise, or it's more popular name "TRX", is a full body workout using your own body for resistance.  Also, with unstable straps, it forces you to stabilize with your core or power house.  We can get into the deepest squat using the TRX.  It will get you strong quickly.  And definitely give you the confidence to wear your favorite shorts!

Just playing around with my paint roller extension handle! This worked great by allowing my arms to work symmetrically. I tucked my tail bone and imagined rolling down onto my lumbar spine – if I could clear my booty (not), but, you know, in "theory"…So, deep core, but arms too🏼 Score! Imagine running the stick from your thighs and pulling it up your body while you're tucking and rolling, only to pull that stick up and over your head! Bam🏻.

KayLee helping with the hip flexor and hamstring stretch. If you've been sitting a little too much, this stretch on the reformer will sort things out! I like my spring load on the lighter side. One red. One foot on the ground, the other on the shoulder rest. Push the carriage away eventually straightening your standing leg. And a dogs help is always welcome. #hamstrings #hipflexor #stretch #reformerpilates #dog #love #kayleethehelper #gracefulpilates
