A second week with the foam rollers and I’ve received some very positive feedback from people who have felt the benefits of using them. Although they can be uncomfortable to lie on, it seems it’s worth it for most! People reported feeling taller, more open across the chest and more mobile around shoulders. I had 20 requests to order some , so good to know people want to practice at home. They arrived this week and I’ll be bringing them to classes next week for those who ordered one. There is a 10 minute roller routine which you can download here, which has 6 of the exercises we have done in class over the last fortnight Foam Roller 10 Minute routine
Eardisland pilates class went ahead as usual today, despite the road to the village being blocked off both ends, meaning detours and encounters with reluctant workmen….it’ll take more than that to stop 13 pilates women with strong cores from getting to pilates!
Week 12 of pilates for gardeners and as it was the last one for a few weeks, we learned a 10 minute routine which can be practised at home ( download here 10-minute-routine ) It makes a good warm up before starting those gardening jobs or for stretching out those aching muscles after the works done!
Great news, there is enough interest to continue the classes for another 6 weeks, starting Thurs Sept 25th. As we approach Autumn there are usually plenty of jobs to do in the gardens, so pilates will help keep spines flexible and cores strong to avoid injuries! Thanks to Jill for organising the classes at Hergest Croft, and for being happy to continue for another term.
Safe and happy gardening all…..
