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

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.

Do you remember what first inspired you to do Pilates? Share your story with us! My fascination with Pilates started from my first session in November 2000. My desire to tell the world about how special Pilates is has only grown since then!
Pilates creates beautiful connections everywhere I turn. It connects body and mind, apparatus and mover, teacher and student. As a mentor I hope to inspire you to create deeper connections with yourself, Pilates and with your clients. From this space you can empower your clients to make deeper connections within themselves. @joannebezzinapilates from Sydney Centred Pilates. #canvasmatambassador #pilatesmentor #iampolestar #pilatesstories #northshoreyoga #streetart #ecofriendlyyoga #womeninbusiness #artlovers #Newtown

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

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.

Patience Grasshopper... and this is the case with this exercise for me. Once I managed to lengthen the front of the hips and quads, the grasshopper on the barrel happened.

Teaser on the reformer, a full body integration exercise.

When i first start with Pilates, i think that i always have 2 choices: become a Pilates instructor or come back to my major of marketer. I feel safe about that thinking.
But i ask myself why i already chose to jump out of my comfort zone, why i need to think for safety again?
Since that moment, i say to myself, i only have 1 choice that go straight with my current journey of becoming Pilates instructor. Of course it's still very hard journey but i do believe with what i am being today, with what i am doing now.
It's not safe way anymore but a lots of challenges with fun, adventures and many things ahead to enjoy!

Swan on the barrel - it looks like a piece of cake when done by others who execute it correctly and beautifully. Like all other full body integration pilates exercises, your whole body work together to execute the movement. The connection with the legs is key for this move. Still a work in progress for me and feeling that the embodiment of the movement is coming very soon! #swanonthebarrel #pilatesswan #pilatesstories #pilatesjourney #instapilates #josephpilates #fullbodyintegration #pilates #instafit #nevergiveup #keeponlearning #trainthebrain #mindandbody

"Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor" - Joseph Pilates.
