We’ve all been there. Sunday we’re planning for and thinking about the week ahead and we have a million ideas of what we want to accomplish including what workouts we’re going to do. Then… Monday morning happens. Sometimes regardless of how motivated we felt just the day before, the start of the week seems to derail our good intentions. How can Pilates help?
If you have never practiced Pilates in a studio environment, the experience of walking into a studio for the first time may seem intimidating. Making sure you feel heard, seen, and welcome during your initial contact and visit with a studio will ensure a positive experience down the road. Here is some helpful advice for navigating finding your Pilates community.
Pilates can help you experience more zest and joy in your role as a mother. But as with all change, there are challenges too: back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles), pelvic floor dysfunction, and swelling. All of this is often exacerbated by the lack of sleep and rest so common in motherhood. Through my personal experience I can confidently say that Pilates has helped me every step of the way.
We have seen tremendous improvements and progress across the board. Clients who are regularly doing this work have been getting incredibly strong! And many have added more advanced exercises into the regular repertoire. Clients’ endurance has also improved and those participating in more cardio based classes are finding this aspect of their wellness also improving significantly.
It seems so simple and yet many people struggle to make sure they get fresh air daily. Often our busy schedules get us so wrapped up that we forget to step outside, breathe in the fresh air, and get some sunshine on our faces. Pilates In The Park can help! Our fun, refreshing, and challenging workouts will have you happy you made the time to go outdoors.
Working with an experienced and knowledgeable Pilates instructor who was there to coach me and guide me, felt really good. I walked out of the class feeling uplifted, energized, and hopeful. My regular Pilates practice became an integral part of my weekly schedule. I finally felt like I was regaining control over my body! It was life changing.
It’s true. Pilates has the power to calm and soothe our nerves. Why? A mindful practice of Pilates helps us open up our chest, create movement and glide in our shoulder girdle, and strengthen our core, hips, and legs. When we finish a Pilates workout we walk out feeling open, energized and uplifted, ready to face the world!
As Pilates instructors we provide individualized guidance and support, motivation, and accountability that we all so desperately need. Make the commitment to yourself. Schedule and plan for the week ahead. Set aside time to keep investing in your health and wellbeing. Book a session or class with your favorite instructor and make it happen! You won’t regret it!
