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!

Bridging!! So yummy for us. I incorporate this sometimes in my foot work. Here we are with feet apart on the foot bar, and instead of pushing the carriage away – we lift into a shoulder bridge keeping the carriage at home throughout 🏼 #bridges #bridging #reformer #spinearticulation #calves #glutes #abs #oohcramp #clubpilates

Got a card today. Something tangible. I dropped shears yesterday and punctured a hole in my foot. She didn't know….she just dropped me a card. And oh how it brightened my day. I looked for a Snoopy emoji — you know the one ;-) Couldn't find it #hello #friends #sendacardtoafriend #snoopy #dontdropshears🏼@magpies_magnolia #love

Working on my weight🏻. Cauliflower cakes with the help of my local market for fresh, organic mixin's and my beautiful friend @valerie for the recipe and help making them with antiquated kitchen equipment..specifically I don't have a large cuisinart. It's okay to shred cheese with a hand held grater….or chop cauliflower with my @vitamix , right!? I want a @cuisinart now tho. #pilateslife #pilatesbody #pilatescommunity #weightloss #healthy #needcuisinart #friends #gracefulpilates
