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!

Obliques baby! I like this on the Wunda chair because even tho the target is your obliques, it requires full body power to achieve it. It's like a plank for the upper body. Keep your legs straight and strong. You don't have to lift a leg out to the side like my model (ahem, son) here. But what a great challenge it adds. Not to mention it's great work for the butt❣ #gogetitgirl #wundachair #pilates #obliques #plank #butt #gracefulpilates
