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!

QUAD SQUAD! Dang this is challenging but this squad is rocking it! I’m proud like a mama. Pilates Exo chair work. I like a heavy spring load to create the support, that foundation.

Varying stages of Pilates roll down, directed by me🏻. We used the chair and attached springs as an assist. If you are a newer practitioner, use springs or a stretch band under the feet, something to help you in your movement. Having trouble with a smooth roll down is not always weak abdominals. In fact, most times it’s attributed to tight muscles. Don’t get frustrated❣️ Just keep at it#pilates #pilateschair #pilatessprings #rolldown #pilatesrolldown #abs #absworkout #ab #abdomen #abdominal #abdominals #abdomnomnom #respectyourcore #powerhouse #core #adoreyourcore #pilateslovers
