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!

#lizziesplankchallenge DAY 30 THREE ZERO!!!!3 MINUTESI confess, yesterday I was supposed to plank 2.45…but it was Mother’s Day and I didn’t do a darn thing🏼. But today!! Today is a new day and the last day of our challenge!!! You should be so proud of yourselves. And if you played along, you should feel a marked difference in your strength! And you should be a little more cut. In this vid, I did 3 minutes. I started with #TRX plank, and did some variations from there. It was tough!So here’s what I’ve been thinking, mind you I’m just spit balling, but I’m thinking we should do a #SIDEPLANK challenge. Imagine what our #lovehandles would look like after a 30 day challenge of THAT🏼🕺🏼#staytuned #plank #planker #planking #abs #obliques #upperbody #alloverworkout #pilates #instructorlife #pilatesforever www.gracefulpilates.com
