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

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. 💅Bonus pro tips for the snake on the Arm Chair
This is my version of taking the snake to the chair. You can see elements of the Snake on the mat, and some of the push ups from the mat and chair. Keeping the peddle down on the walk out was a challenge but making sure I had enough tension to lift the peddle had to be considered as well. Remember to brace the chair so it doesn't slide out away from you. Give it a try and have some fun with your workout!

FLOW AWAY this #magiccircle Monday ⭕️ - So much good going on in the spine, for mobilization, articulating and strengthening and control 🌀This routine requires intricate control of the spine and coordination of the abdominal muscles and hip flexors. 🌀Stabilization of the shoulders during lower body rotational movements, keeping collar bone wide and open, neck relaxed- movement is focused from the waist area 🌀When rolling over and lifting legs to ceiling, widen the back of shoulders connecting to the mat with triceps and armpits, to avoid placing pressure in the neck and back of head. However avoid if you have any neck problems, particularly related to disc dysfunction ❌

N 21 Long Stretch
Shown on the Arm Chair by @cotronepilates and on the Reformer by @laurabpilates
apparatus by @Gratz_Pilates

Pro tip💫
The long stretch is the first exercise in the long stretch series introduced on the Reformer. It requires a strong Powerhouse, control of the shoulder girdle, and connection through the inner thighs. To find your two way stretch keep your heels lifted and your head lengthened in line with the whole body. Initiate the push out with a deep inhale, do not lift your hips, round your shoulders, or drop your head. Maintain this straight line in the body as you return the carriage. Check for overly flexed wrists to avoid wearing sinking into the joint, and depending on the body in front of you locked elbows or soft. 👋👋👋pro tips for the Long Stretch on the Arm Chair
This is an advance exercise that require balance and strength but is also a great place to teach clients how to keep their shoulders and lats down when pushing out, or what is in this instance, up.

I am a big believer is listening to one's body. That being said, I am sure you all have noticed I added a little twist to this exercise. Currently my body craves backbends, extension, front body opening.

N 20 Going Up Front
Shown on the Electric Chair by @cotronepilates and on the Wunda Chair by @laurabpilates
apparatus by @Gratz_Pilates

Pro tip💫
Nothing can expose your imbalances like GUF! For some the challenge begins with moving upwards, for others it's balance, some must focus to keep their hips level, others need to find the plumb line, maybe there's a weaker leg, oh my god the list!! And if you are like the most of us you'll have to keep an eye on all those things!! But don't give up hope- like Miley said, It's the climb. ✨

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.

Today’s post is towards improving posture by strengthening the POSTERIOR MUSCULAR CHAIN for the #posturepolice campaign initiated by @yasminkarachiwala and @zeenadhalla and tagged by the inspirational @equitness to share a beneficial exercise. ✖️✖️✖️ Poor posture may be causing a weak posterior muscular chain, which comprises some of the most powerful muscles we have in the body, (eg. Gluteals, Hamstrings, Erector Spinae, Trapezius, Posterior Deltoid and Calf muscle) yet in the vast majority of the population, this muscular system doesn’t even function or activate as it should. Essentially it is the muscular system designed to get us out of the fetal position that we tend to adopt in our modern lifestyles of continuous sitting and slouching and forward head posture. It is essential for a strong powerhouse and weakness there of, can lead to 🔹Lower back pain 🔹Weakend core stability 🔹Pelvic instability 🔹 Less effective general athletic function - just to name a few.
-
-
⚠️ 🎥 Always be mindful of engaging the TvA (lifting the lower belly in and up) 🔹 Head and neck is always an extension of the rest of the spine !! Do not PULL head and neck back. 🔹Glutes will extend the hips and lift the legs 🔹 Stay energized through the legs and feet to increase muscle activation 🔹 ⚠️⚠️⚠️- It is important to know that as an athlete the effective activation of the muscles of the posterior chain are essential to peak performance and injury prevention. -

I admire her, her craft and her presence in this world 😍 @jjweeks_pilates

Re-educate your body to move with integrity 🔺Start with awareness of the FEET ... connect mindfully and intentionally TO and THROUGH them 🔺This will energize and activate the muscles of the legs providing strength and stamina 🔺leading to more functional movement patterns and correct biomechanics of the knees and hips. -
🔺Instead of quadruped position add a little challenge into standing, to lengthen and strengthen the legs, hips and spine. 🔺I am starting with an ankle and plantar fascia mobilization. 🔺keep shoulders soft and scapular drawing downward. 🔺Hips stay square to the floor, neutral spine and TvA engaged 🔺

#HealingwithPilates 38 ~ Fear (LESS) ~~~~~ This Weeks topic brings me to 🔺The MIND which trains the BODY 🔺💯 The most important aspect of effective training starts in the brain. If you want to move better and feel better, practice mindfulness in your movement. Mindful movement is an effective way to reduce stress and its physical consequences. Paying attention to the sensations within the body, both the pleasant and unpleasant, translates into a willingness to experience the challenges instead of giving up so readily. This transcends and expands into other areas of our life. ✖️✖️✖️There are exercises that have been challenging mentally and physically - keeping the mind focused and calm and being fear(less) in the pursuit of my goals is what has made every aspect of my training worthwhile! - improved strength, flexibility, better balance and coordination, improved reaction time, better lung function and cardiovascular conditioning. Lastly but Importantly - better ability to handle stress. -

It's been a while since I felt inspired to post myself doing any Pilates exercises... my partner in crime @laurabpilates from our challenges #wholesystemchallenge and #Pilateschallenge15 just can't continue posting these weekly challenges as she has a full plate of life right now to put it mildly. So I'm dedicating this Ladder Barrel variation to you Laura ❤️❤️❤️ my forever #instainspiration. #mondaymotivation

#Inspired by @cotronepilates and @laurabpilates's #wholesystemchallenge, I decided to revisit an #exercise I haven't done in a LONG time - #shortspine / #semicircle on the #pilatestower. #Confession 🙇🏻‍♀️: I've always avoided this one bc I just didn't get it. It used to seem #awkward and while I knew what it was working, I couldn't FEEL it in my body. Buuuuuuut... now I do!!! 🙌🏻 It's so yummy on the #spine, works the #core and #glutes subtly but deeply, and #challenges shoulder stability and full body integration! #Clients watch out! I'll definitely be adding this to your sessions this week! 😆👀🙌🏻 #pilatesbody #pilatesaddict #pilateseveryday #pilatesjourney #fitbodies #fitspiration #fitbodypilates #mondaymotivation #nox #equinoxmademedoit #teameqx #eqxpilates @equinox

UN〰DU〰LATE your spine 🖤 to improve your flexibility 〰 If your spinal muscles are tight, try flowing movements to make the muscles more pliable and flexible 〰Undulation pumps fluid to nourish the discs and ligaments 〰Undulation teaches you to tune into your body and improve awareness 〰 The spine is the center of movement, so when it is more flexible, every movement becomes more comfortable and prone to less injuries 〰 Great routine to stretch shoulders and chest ☑️
