Did someone say “pie and lattes”? Well, as long as it’s Banting friendly!
Whether you know or don’t know what Pilates is, start practicing it today. Your body and mind will thank you for it!
I am delighted to share a bit of my passion with you. Over the next few months I’ll be sharing some thoughts with you on how Pilates can benefit your overall well-being. Keep in mind that every person is different and results and impact is varied from person to person. The main thing to keep in mind is to have FUN on this journey!
In this first blog, it’s all about Pilates 101 and how it has your back. Pilates has a long-practiced history and today you can find all forms of traditional, modern and fusion Pilates to take your well-being to a new level.
The Pilates method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century as a new approach to exercise and condition the body. It was originally called “contrology” as he considered this to be a mind/body/spirit approach. His method included the use of equipment, such as the Pilates reformer, but almost all the foundational exercises can be done in the comfort of your own home with just a mat (or on your carpet if you don’t have one!) and your own body. So there really are NO excuses to start practicing it today!
Don’t worry if you’re not as graceful as a ballerina on the first attempts! But challenge yourself and your body and you will be rewarded.
So that is all about the core principles of Pilates and all that is left now is for you to grab your mat and start exercising!
