Side plank and side bending. Lovely exercise to strengthen the obliques. Love seeing how graceful it is when clients execute this exercise in a synchronized manner! #pilatesstories #positivemovement #pilatesreformer #pilateslife #pilatesfit #pilates #pilatessidebend #pilatessideplank #sidebend #sideplank #pilateslove #pilateseveryday #pilatestododia

Semicircle on the reformer - such a great exercise to articulate the spine like an undulating wave 🌊 I got stuck a little after reversing the direction and once you get into a momentum, the spine feels amazing. #semicirclereformer #semicircle #pilatesfit #positivemovement #pilates #pilatesjourney #pilateslove #pilatesstories #pilatesreformer #neverstopmoving #pilateseveryday #pilatesinstructor #pilateslife

Hey guys! So I did a thing and posted one of those them Instagram stories to talk a little more about Lotus, why it’s different, and why I’m passionate about this method. Pretty please jump on and take a listen 👆🏻 I promise I don’t ramble, and I also promise that it will be HILARIOUSLY awkward as you can see the discomfort on my face the whole time 🤣🙈🤦🏼‍♀️ BUT!! This mission and you guys mean enough to me to suck it up, get over myself and do it anyway. So please take a listen!! 🙌🏻💗 Now, let’s go get this Monday!! 💪🏻 #overcomeyourobstacles #sandiegopilatesinstructor #pilatesforrehabilitation #thelotusmethod #whyitsdifferent #obtainyourgoals #liveyourdreams #beawkwardinpublic #pilatesstories #conciergepilates #conciergeservicessandiego #customizedfitness #pilatesandyoga

Maybe it’s summer... the request from clients this week is to work on their glutes! This is a great glute strengthening exercise on the reformer. Should have picked up the back of the head a tad more! #pilatesstories #pilates #positivemovement #neverstopmoving #pilateslove #pilatesjourney #glutes #reformer #pilatesreformer #summer #pilatesfit

Making the most of the heat and sun that London has been blessed with the past week. Rooftop Yoga at The Old Truman Brewery. True to Joseph Pilates’s quote “By all means, never fail to get all the sunshine and fresh air you can.” Loved the experience last evening and thank you @iamjessicaskye @fatbuddhayoga for such an amazing class. Will be back for more this summer.

⚡️Diary Entry Alert⚡️
Thursday Thoughts: Support.
After dealing with a trauma and battling anxiety, I have known days that felt like the rug had been pulled out from under me and like there’s no safe place to stand. Everything feels so unstable. I had to learn how to ground myself and stand tall with confidence and trust... Confidence in myself and trust that I will be supported. This is where I found Yoga and Pilates... on a deeper level... and clung to them for healing. Now, I find myself in a place where I want to jump, where I want to push myself to jump more, and trust that the ground will be steady and supportive when I come back down.
It’s amazing what we can do when we feel like we are supported.
QUESTION: If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do?

The importance of creating a positive movement experience for your clients to encourage them to move in a pain-free and safe environment. The use of small apparatus helps at times. Really enjoyed seeing my one-to-one mat client smile while moving yesterday, a far cry from a month ago when I first saw her. @cristinamas90 She was so fearful of moving due to lower back pain. She told me last evening that she is now addicted to Pilates and she has started swimming again, and Pilates has helped her feel ready to take up other physical activities again 👊🏻#addictedtopilates #positivemovement #nofearofmoving #painfreemovement #pilatesstories #pilates #matpilates #pilatesjourney #iampolestar #pilateslove #pilateslife #neverstopmoving

Finally, we found time to celebrate the completion of our comprehensive certification together with our supporting husbands.

Theme for today’s studio circuit was flexion and extension of the spine. This variation of seated push through is great to free up the hips while you go into spine flexion and extension. #pilatesstories #pilatesstudio #pilatescircuit #pilatesinstructor #iampolestar #pilatesinstructor #pilateslove #pilates #pilatesjourney #neverstoplearning #neverstopmoving

Always love seeing motivated people get up early to do something for their bodies. This morning I had the privilege of teaching a group of early risers and it is great to see the difference in the way they show up in life before and after the class.

Two days of comprehensive assessment at Polestar UK’s headquarters and the brand new Moss Pilates at Kings Cross. What a lovely experience. Big thanks to @mosspilates and it’s such a pleasure to meet @shellyapower and have her as the examiner.

It’s great to be able to introduce Pilates to a dear childhood friend and a competitive tennis player. Glad he felt it can be a great complement to his tennis training 🎾@hcheam doing the standing hip stretch. Off to lunch we go.

The dolphin - still one of my favorites to articulate the spine and work on opening the front of the hips.

“Change happens through movement and movement heals” - Joseph Pilates. How true and felt the healing power of movement this week. Feels so good to move and feel happy again after being out for a few days after ramming my knee into the corner of a reformer resulting in a swollen knee and overcompensated with muscle stiffness in fear of aggravating the pain. Feels great to move again especially this hip opener on the trapeze. #neverstopmoving #hipopener #trapeze #pilates #pilatesstories #neverstoplearning #pilatesheals #pilateslove #pilatestrapeze #pilateslovers #pilatestododia

Feeling accomplished managing the rollover shoulder stand on the barrel today. Good spine mobility into flexion, hip extension especially lengthening front of hips and quads and distribution of weight throughout the spine helped me get into the this exercise without pain into the lower back and took away the fear that inhibited local stabilizers. 👊🏻💖🤸‍♀️#pilates #pilatesstories #pilatesjourney #rollover #shoulderstand #pilateslove #pilatesladderbarrel #ladderbarrel #pilatestododia #pilateslovers #peopleofpilates #pilatesporn #pilateslife #neverstoplearning #neverstopmoving

Inspiring talk by Mike Lewis, the author of ‘When to Jump’, and discussion with Anoopreet Rehncy, founder of fashion company A Black and White Story, and Lee Forster, founder of Neat Nutrition. People who have taken the plunge to ‘jump’ and a reminder that we can all start with small steps to making changes to lead a life that you want and do what you love. 💖#pilatesjourney #mikelewis #whentojump #lovewhatyoudo #lululemonlondon #pilatesstories #london #inspiration #bebrave

Happy spine, happy life. As Joe said “If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old”. Mastering inverted V and winning cue was initiating the movement from plank position by sending your sitting bones wide apart and up towards the ceiling. That kept the quads and front of the legs quiet. Also helped to release the lower back pain that I was experiencing all week, and gave me more range in the Inverted V exercise without doming of the lumbar! #keepongoing #neverstoplearning #neverstopmoving #pilatesstories #pilatesjourney #invertedv #iampolestar #pilateslove #pilates #pilatesinstructor #pilatesreformer #pilatestododia

Teaching chest lift as a set up for supine abdominal series in an introduction group reformer class at @dynamica_pilates Winning cue is the initiation of the movement by sliding your sternum toward your bellybutton and placing your index fingers on your sternum with thumbs pointing towards your pubic bone to guide the movement.
