How do you downdog? Upper back strength is so important to stop you from rounding forward too much (heard of text neck?), and to keep you standing tall. Keeping this same area mobile will help you relax your shoulders and you'll feel comfortable all day long! This month's focus: upper back and shoulders, and a little downdog alignment 😉

We're refreshing some of our equipment, I'm so excited to set up our new.. Well if I've taught you recently you probably know what it is, stay posted when it's all set up there'll be some photos!

I'm thrilled to have a piece of the balance body contrology range at the studio, it's not only beautiful but replicates the original function, style and finish of Joseph Pilates' equipment. Get ready for some classical work in class!

Have you ever wondered what happens to PVC exercise mats when you throw them out? Not good! Here are some other ideas...

A summary of the PVC yoga mat problem, and how to be eco-friendly... Donations, of old but useful mats, are possible to Mayfield Nurseries or https://www.bluecross.org.uk/hampshire-southampton-rehoming-centre

What are you looking for in a yoga mat? Read on for my guidance...

A new student recently asked me how they should chose which yoga mat to buy, and, after dispensing my wisdom, I thought I would write it all down for anyone else that is interested.

You might be surprised to know that I am in no way encouraging you to go out and buy a new mat immediately. In fact, after starting to investigate the environmental credentials of yoga mats, I have made a resolution not to buy another one if I can help it. There is no getting away from the fact that the vast majority of yoga mats are made from new plastic. I don't want, or need, any more of that in my life.

For those of you who are in the market for a new mat you should consider your needs for cushioning, grip, and weight. So, if that is you, or you are just interested, read on...

I spent this weekend brushing up on my Reformer knowledge with JPilates. We focused on all the progressive exercises, I can't wait to share them with my Reformer people. My back is definitely feeling all the hard work and what a mess behind the camera!

This is one of my favourite thread the needle exercises. Using a ball means I get a nice smooth rotation in the upper body allowing me to stretch out the top of my shoulders. You have to work hard to keep your hips still, but this is also the benefit of doing this version because you get the disassociation between your hips and your ribs. My other favourite version you can just focus on the stretch, I'll share that one another time!

Using a small ball to support your back means you've not got as far to go over in your roll over, and that extra 7 inches really makes it easier when you're starting to add in roll overs to your exercises. If your instructor has added these in to your class why not practice them with a small ball, and you can also do this with a foam roller. Roll overs always starts by pulling your belly button towards your spine and up into your rib cage

25/09/2020

Double knee fold is another great stability exercise, the small ball really challenges your balance and it means your deep abdominals have to work extra hard to keep you still. If you can't keep still you can do this with one leg at a time. If it's easy, you can try to rely on your arms and hands less by just resting your elbows on the ground. Another great exercise to try at home!

Leg slides with a small ball are amazing, they let your foot slide effortlessly along the floor so you can really focus on making sure your hips are stable and not worry about losing your sock with the friction of the floor. It's great for hip stability and finding those deep abdominal muscles. If you have a small ball at home why don't you give it a go!

The small ball is a great way to enhance your Pilates workout. It tones your abs and inner thighs as well as increasing your strength, endurance and concentration. You can use it partially inflated, where it's great underneath your hips for stability exercises and for relaxing your head on for some lovely mobility work.

I'm going to share with you my favourite exercises with a small ball this week!

What is your favourite exercise? Let us know in the comments!

We're still running our ballet classes online. If you've always wanted to try ballet and are worried about starting later, or you've been looking for an open ballet class for adults we've got a class for you. Ballet has so many wonderful benefits, but my favourite is how it can make you forget a stressful day, There's something about the concentration needed to perform movements, the music and the people.

If you have any questions or would like to join, please email our teacher [email protected].

Please share with anyone who might be interested!

We're still teaching our barre classes online. We get a lot of work done in our 45 minute classes. I've recently been loving incorporating arms exercises after each section on the barre! This helps build all of those postural muscles that help counter act the hours sitting at our desks and on the sofa. Not to mention all of the standing leg work, perfect for strengthening knees, feet and glutes!

We've got spaces on our Monday 6:30 pm and Thursday 6:00 pm classes.

Please share with anyone who might be interested!

Flexibility is so important to maintain, here's a quote from Joe you may have heard before. A lot of the time in class we're articulating through our spine or adding rotation. When we're on the mat, my first mission is to warm up your spine. I love starting class with a spine curl/bridge or roll up.

Functionally we need our flexibility, we use our spine's flexibility daily whether we're picking things up from the floor, reaching for something on a shelf, sitting down, or putting on our socks.

Are you interested in starting a Pilates class? We've got spaces online and very limited spaces at our studio. If this is of interest to anyone you know please share this with them.

When most people think about flexibility they think of a gymnasts and circus performers performing seemingly impossible positions like the splits or an extreme backbend. However, we use our flexibility daily whether you are doing laundry, getting into a car, putting on our seat belt on, tying our shoelaces or reaching for something on a shelf.

We can take it for granted, and as the body ages we can loses some of its flexibility. Injury and non-use of the body can bring premature inflexibility. Movement and stretching will help keep you flexible and mobile. One of the easiest ways to stay flexible, or get some flexibility back is to do Pilates!

Side leg adductor lifts and squeezes work the whole body. Lift both legs up and control them on the way down, it doesn't matter how high you lift them it's all about your alignment and control. When you've done 8, hold at the top in the air and squeeze again with control another 8 times. All your squeezes should be nice and smooth. Don't forget the other side!

Are you missing the magic circle? I'll be teaching a magic circle class in my Wednesday 6:30 pm class on September 30th. If you're an existing member of our studio and have a magic circle at home please contact me if you'd like to join in online, I'll have limited spaces.

Hamstring squeeze is another essential magic circle exercise. Exhale press down with your leg that is on top of the circle, see if you can lengthen your spine as you press down. Inhale lift your leg so when you're done you're barely resting on the pad, and don't lose your lift. Great for strengthen hamstrings and posture.
