How are you feeling after the last two days?

This is our last day of Pilates for this week. Day 4 – is an Introduction to Barre classes. 

You’ll need a chair, bench or couch ready to hold onto for stability.

During Day 5 – you’ll have the option to use small hand weights. If you’re keen to do some strength work, and you don’t have weights, you can use soup cans or water bottles filled with water. 

There are many different levels of fitness and experience in this challenge group.

Because of this we’re starting off steady, so if you’re new to Pilates or just getting back into exercise, you can build strength and also prevent injury.

The intensity will increase as the weeks go on, so if you’re intermediate level, there’ll be more challenging videos and exercises as we go.

Remember to always listen to your body and take modifications as you need to.

Ideally you are never feeling pain in the lower back or neck, always modify if you do.

Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions at all.

Lots of love

Em

      I’m really glad to have found your pilates, thank you. I did reformer & mat for years but for 5 years now, moving around & with child, I’ve just done bits at home but I prefer instruction.
      The rolling down half way onto lower back, are we on our sacrum then? It is something that I’ve never quite ‘got’ / been comfortable / felt I’m doing right; I realise everybody has different spines… I have a prominent coccyx than can get sore , I’m never quite sure which but to balance on! Thank you x

        Hi Shabana, lovely to hear from you. Great you found me! Yes the rolling down is on the sacrum. Yes it is different for everyone when doing this as a less flexible spine will make it more challenging. I gave someone some tips on the tailbone protruding a few days ago. Some suggeisons are (when doing the roll up or similar exercise) is to roll up two mats, so you can put one on each side of the tailbone, on each butt cheek, and so your tailbone sits in between the two mats – does that make sense? It may help to reduce the protrusion into the mat of the tailbone. It may also help to have a ticker mat under your tailbone in general. Let me know if this helps. x

    My son and I are loving the exercising together! He asks me every day when we’re going to do “karates”, his way of saying “pilates”.

    Hi!!! Already in day 3 and I’m enjoying it very much. Feeling a little bit “sore” but i think it’s normal, right?
    Thankyou.

    Reply
    • Emma Jory

      Yes that is normal! you ae working lots of muscles and maybe you haven’t worked them for a while too so you may feel more of a soreness then.
