Pilates for Gardeners

The first class started at Hergest Croft , Kington this week, especially for gardeners. It was great to see some familiar faces from my previous Kington class and to meet new people who share a passion for gardening and are keen to learn pilates. We had a back drop of the wonderful gardens and lawns of Hergest Croft. We focusesweetpeasd on stretches for the back, exercises to keep the spine flexible, core strength, and techniques for safe ways to do those jobs in the garden such as lifting heavy pots and pushing heavy wheelbarrows.    The classes run until 17th July.  We had the maximum number of 12 this week but there may be spaces in future weeks as people take holiday breaks. Contact Jill if you are interested 01544 230262. Happy Gardening!

My regular classes have been focusing on the principle ISOLATION- identifying those weaker muscles in the body which need strengthening whilst stretching tighter muscles, to create balance. similar to the way in which guy ropes hold up a tent if the tension through each rope is equal.
