"I need to protect my inner peace. As long as I have my inner peace protected, I am happy"
I can't take credit for that statement - when on holiday I asked one of the hotel staff, how he was? That was his reply. And it stayed with me - I think it is just such a simple, honest and true statement to keep, remember and practice. Protect your inner peace

PRECISION!
During your Pilates session, let ME worry about the precision of your movements. Whether we are working in my studio or online, I will be there to spot all the small details โ€“ whether it is the way your shoulders are placed or even the position of your little toe! It is all connected and it all makes a difference.
But again โ€“ you do not have to worry about any of that โ€“ thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m here! :)

You need this DELICIOUS exercise! Try this exercise to open up the chest and thoracic spine.
If you donโ€™t have a foam roller, a rolled up towel or long cushion works just as well. Remember to do both sides. As with all exercises, take your time and listen to your body. If anything causes discomfort or pain, stop immediately.

IT LOOKS SO EASY
There is a strange notion that Pilates is just stretching and breathing. But one of the first things you will discover when you start doing Pilates is that it is a lot more intense and hard work than it looks!

Have you seen Joseph Pilates workout? Did you know he was a boxer and a weightlifter? The man liked to WORK and it was tough!

But when a movement or exercise is tough โ€“ you are challenging yourself. You are strengthening your body, your movements and reaching your goals! So it is SO worth it! Do you have any health, fitness or Pilates goals? Drop me a message and letโ€™s see how Pilates can help you!

Are you sitting comfortably? Probably not!

Whether you're sitting at a desk for work or just catching up on your social media, how you sit will directly impact how you feel.

Here is an example of your posture that will guarantee you have a sore back!

And then a small visual tip on how to take the pressure off your spine and prevent you turning into a bundle of tension and pain.

I find it helpful to have a Post It note on my screen saying "SIT UP" as a reminder to sit properly. Or every now and then, have a lil walk about. Some people set an alarm. Whatever works for you, just being more aware of your posture is the first step to correcting it.

Happy Monday! :D

I thought it was probably time to introduce myself and tell you more about why I set up Pilates Heart!
Hi! :) I am Farah and I set up Pilates Heart to inspire and encourage people to start looking after themselves!
Everyoneโ€™s relationship with their body is complicated. It has taken me a long time to love my body โ€“ and that is why I do what I do! Donโ€™t compare yourself to others and donโ€™t deprive yourself โ€“ coz life is for living! For me, the goal is not a โ€˜perfectโ€™ shape but to feel good and strong in a functional body and a happy mind!
You deserve to spend time looking after your body and mind! This is your time to care for yourself!
DM if you would like to know more.

Begin or end your day with a lovely lil stretch! I like to think of the body as a well-oiled machine. If you take care of it, you will feel the strength but if you take it for granted, you will be at its mercy.
Letโ€™s get you feeling strong in your body & your self!

Annnnd relax! Here is one of my favorite exercises for releasing the upper back โ€“ Thread the Needle.
Having stiff shoulders and a โ€˜stickyโ€™ upper back (thoracic spine) is very common nowadays โ€“ can be due to a number of reasons like posture, injury, stressโ€ฆ A lack of mobility here can cause much discomfort.
Give this movement a try and donโ€™t worry about getting your head to the floor, just go to where you are comfortable.

I find that there is some confusion between cold and hot compression when we have an ache. Hopefully this helps sort it out ๐Ÿ˜Š

The goal is not a perfect shape but to feel good in a strong body and mind!๐Ÿ’ช

19/07/2021

A little dose of positivity :) I wanted to share the most basic of movements which when done correctly just helps relax and release some of that rigidity we carry in our neck, chest & shoulders. It is the Roll Down.

This movement is about letting go. Do not worry about how low you go or about reaching the floor. That is not the aim. Just let that gravitational pull take over and give in.

Happy Monday ๐Ÿ˜Š

Who I love working with?
For me it is all about making the magic happen. When I extend an invitation to clients to work with me โ€“ its about finding the right fit. Are we the right fit for each other? This is important for you to feel comfortable with me and me with you.
If you are at the point in your life โ€“ where you want to be in control of your body and not at its mercy - that is the first step! If you are prepared to get out of your comfort zone and are curious, excited and maybe a lil nervous about it โ€“ we are going to have a brilliant time! ๐Ÿ’™
Message me and lets arrange a FREE 30 mins online or in person consulation, where we will discuss your desires and challenges for your body and how I might be able to solve them!

๐Ÿ’™WHY PILATES? ๐Ÿ’™

Pilates is not just exercise. It is a holistic approach to exercise that aims to improve your physical strength, flexibility, posture & alignment. Not to forget the added benefit of reducing stress and improving mental focus and well being.

Pilates is based on an anatomical understanding of the bodyโ€™s muscular and skeletal systems. The exercises work on engaging the stabilizing muscles deep in the core and this encourages proper support of the spine and improves joint mobility.

Pilates is now recommended by many GPs, osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists for help in overcoming and preventing a variety of injuries and postural problems
