I can't wait for the day I can get Jon on the apparatus. I have a few apparatus exercises I think will facilitate his movement beautifully.

WE want to challenge YOU to use The WHOLE system. 🙌🏼Introducing the #Wholesystemchallenge by @cotronepilates and @laurabpilates

Each week we will pick a classical Pilates exercise and perform it on one of these many apparatuses. We challenge you to show us where you would most like to perform the exercise and how YOU would teach it. You can post as many times as you like in as many places and ways as you can come up with. Join us and keep your Pilates practice on point.
#WholeSystemChallenge
N 31 Rowing 3-6 (from the chest, from the hips, shave and hug a tree ❤️) #staystrongjonnygrant

Pro tips 🌟
The rowing series is traditionally performed on the reformer but can be moved to any other piece of equipment to target specific muscles in a targeted way. Using no equipment encourages the practitioner to use "their own resistance" often described as moving through wet cement or peanut butter 👀 Regardless of which ever imagery you choose to use, (and we would love to hear them!) it is an important teaching tool and strategic choice that will improve your strength and control.

@Pilates_in_surrey and I want to motivate you to jump right back to it this September with #PostSummerAbs
Back from summer, refreshed and ready to go 🏃🏽‍♀️💪🏼 Each week we will give you 1 core focused exercise for you to try and post throughout the week :
THIS WEEK we've chosen ... 🎺

SHORT BOX :
- Flat back leaning with arm raises and shave - "Spear a fish" Twist and reach in flat back
- Side overs with arm pulls and thoracic twist
Shown on the Reformer and the Cadillac using the foot strap. Note 📝: if holding onto bâton try to "break" it with arms straight forward at sternum level. This engages your lats & antérieur serratus, opening the chest & collar bones & drawing the scaps down & wide 👌🏼✔️
Anytime, anywhere let's put our core at the CORE DAILY ❗️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~🎯🎯🎯

One question often asked is why isn't Jon able to walk? Did he also have a spinal injury? The answer: No spinal injury. Jon's inability to walk is caused by the brain injury. He is physically strong enough, but the signal from the brain is damaged.

N 30 Spine Stretch Forward
Shown on the "mat" by @cotronepilates w/ @sam_cotrone and @laurabpilates w/ Jon ❤️
#staystrongjonnygrant

Pro tip💫
Spine Stretch Forward is a delicious stretch for the whole body, made even better with a partner 😍 ✅ list for optimal S T R E T C H *Flex your feet but try not to hyper extend your knees
*draw your waist in and up
*squeeze your glutes *keep your shoulders down
*Chin to chest not throat
^ keep back pressed back as you reach forward *breathing is exhale as you reach forward, inhale as you return to sitting upright
So yeah just a few things to think about 🤣

N 22 Snake 🐍
Shown on the Wunda Chair by @cotronepilates and on the Reformer by @laurabpilates

Pro tips💫
The snake is a delicious stretch for the whole body, but it also requires strength, balance and control- and a little bit of nerve! As you move your spine from a high scoop to a supported arch and back again try to encorporate a breathing pattern that allows for a big exhale as you lift your chest to the ceiling. Deep exhales rid our bodies of toxins and helps relieve the stress of our daily lives. 💅

N 27 Swimming💦
Shown on the Spine Corrector by @cotronepilates and on the Mat w/ #JonnyGrant by @laurabpilates ❤️
Apparatus by @gratz_pilates

Pro tip💫
Swimming is an exercise that challenges your coordination, strength and flexibility. However it seems to feel forever foolish and awkward no matter how much grace you will into it. The best ever heard cues for swimming are "keep your eyes on the shore" or "Jaws!!" Or our favorite, "Looks like you're drowning!" But have no fear 10 short reps and you'll be off to the next one! 😘😘

N 23 Tendon stretch w/ single leg
Shown on the Spine Corrector by @cotronepilates and on the Wunda Chair by @laurabpilates
apparatus by @Gratz_Pilates

Pro tips💫
A stretch by any other name wouldn't be as tough!! The TS is a super powerful move for your whole body, and a delicious stretch for the backside of the body as well. Maintaining a scooped middle, stretched tendons and flow is what you will be working on. Makes everything else seem simple! Check in on your shoulders as you work, thats where unnecessary tension will go first.

N 10 The Thigh Stretch 🤗
Shown on the Reformer by @CotronePilates and on the Cadillac by @LauraBPilates with a special cameo ❤
Equipment by @Gratz_Pilates

Pro tip💫
The Thigh Stretch is at its most basic level exactly what it is named for and delivers- a great thigh stretch. But what stretches the front side works the hell out of the back side. So everything behind you is working like mad to support and stretch the front of you. Remember not to release your scoop or lift, and don't allow yourself to sink into your lower back. Remember to find the 2-way Stretch, and keep your eyes forward and head level until you advance this move to the chest opening back bend. Enjoy!

In order to activate Jon's backside, the pelvic lift is used frequently in physical therapy.

N 26 pelvic lift
Shown on the Reformer by @cotronepilates and on the Mat w/ #JonnyGrant by @laurabpilates ❤️
Apparatus by @gratz_pilates

Pro tip💫
The pelvic lift is a basic exercise, unless you are having less then basic circumstances surrounding your physical abilities. In Pilates we focus on articulating our spine, a particular breathing pattern, and holding a "perfect" position while executing the right number of reps. While sometimes the simple act of lift is a true victory. Let's all remember to be #grateful for the mobility we have and take more pleasure in our Pilates workouts. ❤️ #staystrongjonnygrant

Pro tip💥
Side splits strengthens and the inner and outer thigh while challenging your balance and control. How wide tounplace your foot determines how much stretch there will be.

This was one of the very first ways I was taught to do spine stretch using a partner! Unfortunately not everyone can have this cute of a partner but give it a try anyway!! #wholesystemchallenge for my friends @cotronepilates & @laurabpilates. (Turn the sound on if you want to smile & no I don't always sound like a chipmunk!) ❤️

So, I'm on my way to West Palm Beach to be with my family through Hurricane Irma. I'm staying at my dads sturdy af house in Port St. Lucie, my hometown, until it passes. I'm apart of a natural disaster catering company that feeds the electric & tree workers breakfast, lunch and dinner, 1000-2000 people x3. I know this all sounds nuts but in my heart I know I need to be here. I'm going to be absent from my posts but on my story or Facebook live so you can see the behind the scenes of this incredible operation.
I'm thankful for the Pilates Mat exercises, I'm going to need them like woah and my #toecorrector 😜
Wish me luck, I promise I will be fine and I'm predicting I'll be back in a couple weeks.

Apparatus by @gratz_pilates

Pro tip💫
Side Kicks are a fantastic way to trim, slim and strengthen the inner and outer thighs. There are varying degrees of balance and flexibility challenges that you can set for yourself or your client depending on how the body is placed and what apparatus you choose to use or not use. And if you have an extra hand to help you increase your mobility, well now that's lucky 🍀 #staystrongjonnygrant ❤️ NOW, your turn to share!!
