- A week of lots of standing balance work with all my classes. For those who realised they were wobblier than they thought!!…..this exercise sheet will be available next week if you want to practice at home.(thanks Pat for demo-ing).Well done folks. Have a balanced weekend 🙂
Find your trainers, dust off your Pilates mats, classes start back again tomorrow. Looking forward to catching up with you all after our break, and doing some PILATES!
A fourth pilates class started on Wednesday at Eardisland Village Hall this week, attracting 12 people, all from outside of the village – for some it was their first visit to the hall. Most people were new to pilates, so we started with the basics of breathing and core engagement. Lots of positive feedback at the end of the session and everyone’s booked in for future weeks, which is always encouraging! I look forward to working with everyone over the coming weeks.
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
Pilates classes will continue through July and August.
Remember those water bottles if we get a hot summer folks, important to stay hydrated.
