B a b y A b s 💪🏼 (and good lighting!) This weekend I completed my Advanced Pilates instructor course, and after hours and hours of planks, sit ups and more ab work I spotted these little guys making an appearance 👀 I didn’t watch what I ate yesterday (and went out on Saturday!) so they have now vanished, but for a day they were there 😂 Until next time baby abs 👋👋
Extension is delicious nutrition for the spine, but only if the golden rules of how you enter into it, are honoured.
1️⃣First, always make sure your head is aligned with the spine prior to initiating movement with the arms. Connecting to the platform with the palms helps connect the musculature of the armpit along with the arms to prepare for work, but don’t rush it ! Make sure the head is in an efficient position prior to moving the arms. This is especially true for Long Box work like Pulling Straps.
2️⃣Second - breath. Its critical the movement rides the breath. I included some #matwork#rocking to demonstrate this concept, intentional, controlled breath makes integrated movement possible. Let the inhale breath lift you up, as you ground your knees to the floor, you will lift with greater ease when the breath initiates !
3️⃣Lastly, where you look is where you go. Do not let your eyes govern the movement, try and let the breath do the talking. The lines will be far more appealing when everything is cued in order ! I LOVE extension !

Recently I’ve been working my teaser on the Cadillac to help me rock them on the mat. The studio equipment bridges the gap between finding teasers torturous to thinking bring it on! What’s your love to hate exercise? #pilatesesprit#pilatesswindon#gamefaceon
Beautiful boomerang from Lora, so much skillful control in all those moments of pause 🖤 Pilates allows you to move to your own rhythm and in doing so re-calibrates your body and mind 🙌🏼 become strong without being rigid, become flexible without being floppy and know your own body map from the inside out ⚡️ #pilatespower#pfi#matwork
