more rolling this week…

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

Tell me what you think……

Feed back forms for my class members, available at classes next week .   Let me know your thoughts, ideas, concerns and suggestions so I can make sure you get the best from your pilates experience.  No need to add your name,  just put in the box next week at class.

Pilates for gardeners in Kington, Herefordshire

Week 12 of pilates for gardeners and as it was the last one for a few weeks, weold_man_gardening_0521-1103-1318-0653_SMU 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…..
