Second class-Pilates for Gardeners

Another beautiful day for enjoying the second class “Pilates for gardeners” at Hergest Croft Gardens. We were a full class again, and this week we focused on more safe movement patterns for doing those strenuous jobs in the garden such as digging and bending. The pilates poles were used to practiseroses photos our techniques and thankfully the glass cabinets edging the walls of the drawing room, remained in tact! More core strength work and spine flexibility moves were included. The hot tip for the week- keep jobs varied and try to change the jobs you do in the garden every 20 mins or so. That way you use different muscles, and avoid the risk of injury. Gardening is a great form of exercise  if done with a a little care. So, care for your body as you care for your borders!    More good advise is available at http://www.physiocentre.co.uk/garden.htm  Happy gardening!
