This is such a great exercise on the reformer, not only does it work your triceps but you really have to use your deep abdominals to pull the carriage back in. 💪🏼👊🏼
Come try this exercise in one of my reformer classes:
Physique Exercise Salon, Carmel - M/W at 4pm
Om Studios Monterey - M/W 12pm & 5:30pm.

✨Wunda Chair Wednesday✨
Frog 🐸 on the chair is an advanced exercise that really challenges your mind body connection. It's easy to just do tricep dips but lifting your legs with you as you move can be challenging and is all about the core!! Keep your belly button to spine as you press up. If you're beginning this exercise start with higher spring and lower as you grow stronger to keep it challenging

Anyone else feeling the whackiness of mercury being in retrograde? The below link shares an interesting article with a different take on this astrological phenomenon; perhaps we can harness these energies for good! "Mercury retrograde doesn't cause the dysfunction we attribute to it; it amplifies our perception of the thoughts that arise in reaction." via @mindbodygreen

One of my favorite ways to get my heart rate up on the reformer ✨Lounge to Plank; Leg Pull Front ✨ we're using so many muscles and coordination of breathe in this exercise but of course you're using the core to lift the leg into plank. You can never work your core too much. One of the main principles of Joseph Pilates, Pilates Method is strengthening the "inner unit" (abdominal muscles, diaphragm) so that we can effectively use our "outer unit" (our limbs etc). So, moral of the story, work that core! .

"The most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you YOU love, well, that's just fabulous" ~ Carrie Bradshaw, SATC
It wasn't until my 30's that I realized how important it is to work on the relationship with yourself and it's one I still work on daily. Yoga is such a wonderful tool to use, to bring yourself in and to become more self aware.

Looking to add some cardio to you #Pilates workout? Look no further, just jump on the jump board. What's shown on the video is just a small fraction of what you can do; these specific exercises work the #glutes but jumping not only gets your heart rate up but it's actually really challenging for the core. .

✨To Pilates or Yoga✨ A question I often get asked is "which do you like better: Pilates or Yoga?, and it’s something I find really hard to answer. I enjoy both very much, and there are actually more similarities between them than people may realize.

#mermaidmonday on the #wundachair ✨ I love #mermaid on all the apparatus' even on the mat; it's a great way to find length on your side body and for lateral flexion which is one of 4 ways to move your spine. I always tell my clients not to aim for how far you can reach or how flexible you are but to find the length. ⚡️Reach for the other side of the room while pressing into the pinky side of the foot that is on the floor (or opposite hip if you're sitting) as if you're being pulled in two different directions ⚡️
Again, length is 🔑 here. .
