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!

PRONE 2 In Push Through Series! @basipilates #basi Gorgeous Rachelle is seriously rocking this back extension!! This is a gal who a year ago I was hard pressed to get even a slight back bend out of. She was commuting 2 hours a day and as a result was super tight in her #lowback and #hamstrings I’m sure there are a few of you who can relate. Now look at her! Admittedly she’s a perfectionist. And she’s up for any challenge I throw her way. But at the end of the day, it’s practice, practice, practice!!Keep at it! Don’t give up on your practice. YOU are capable of much more than you might think! And also good to have dog support 🐕 #backextensors #prone2 #back #backbend #likeback #lowbackrelease #form #formmatters #reformercadillac #pilates #shoulders #shoulderstretch #dog #doggy #doglife #dogvibe #dontjudgechallenge #dontgiveup gracefulpilates.com
