Completely potty!

We all went to pot in this weeks, pilates for gardeners at Hergest Croft! TheDSCF0254 small plastic pots, previously used to grow my tomatoes in, were used to balance on knees and backs, to help us focus on pelvic stability. Then came the Bill and Ben impressions, as we put them on our heads for the standing balance work. The sound of falling pots definitely got less as the session progressed!

Good fun and great for helping to focus! How about terracotta ones next week folks?!  Have an enjoyable and safe gardening week.

How balanced are you?

elephantMy Pilates for Gardeners class today, focused on balance. Gardening often requires us to lean or reach, taking us off balance, so not surprising that most gardening injuries are caused by falls. We used the pilates poles for standing balance work and the Thera-Band to stretch tight muscles.  Can you stand really tall, lift one knee, and turn your head from side to side? If not maybe you need to join us? Happy and safe gardening all.
