It was great to meet all the new clients this week and welcome back to all of the existing clients. We’ll aim to achieve all of our goals this term!
The Pilates Warm-Up:
The warm-up in Pilates aims to improve blood flow to the different muscles in the body, loosen up the joints and to waken up the core muscles before moving on to the more strenuous or difficult exercises. The warm-up exercises also illustrate some of the basic principles of Pilates such as breathing, pelvic placement, rib cage placement, shoulder blade movement and stability as well as head and neck placement. Some of these principles have been outlined in previous blog posts.
