The early 2018 Winter Pilates Retreat was held on the 27th January at The Ardoe House Hotel.
Since I got back from my holidays a couple of months ago I have been finding all sorts of inspiration on ways to improve my health and fitness lifestyle. Continue reading “Healthy Living Finds”
For as long as I can remember I have loved to exercise. I genuinely believe it is the key to health, fitness, general happiness, and I just actually love sport! But like everyone else I have off days too.
If you’re feeling a bit stressed, anxious, or just need to relax a little more then this pilates stretching routine is what you need!
This 15 minute workout has been designed for those who do sports (any sports!) or for those who are looking to build whole body strength and are looking for some extra, specific strengthening exercises. Try the Pilates for Sport workout here!
This last few weeks it has been great to get back in the studio and do some filming (new home workouts coming soon!), but this post was inspired by a recent Skype chat with Glenn Withers (creator of the APPI pilates method) who asked me what my ultimate favourite pilates exercises were! Funnily enough his favourite exercise is the same as mine and I’ve added it in as the bottom row in the above picture!
My pilates practise is a great compliment to running. The discipline of pilates breathing really helps me through the runs and the core strength makes them much stronger and more controlled. Yesterday was my first running event of the year and I felt a bit out of practise, not with my running but with my routine both pre and post run.
My morning routines are very similar most days of the week. I love the start of a new day, when you have the whole day in front of you. Work days I do things much faster but essentially follow the same routine.
I hope you’ve had a great Easter weekend! Mine has been so lovely and relaxing with not much plans! Here is a 15 minute Full Body Feel good Pilates workout to round the weekend off!
I meant to post this a few weeks back for a client who was going on a ski trip and I thought this would be a perfect preparation for her, but then life got busy with work, being away with work, and then trying to catch up now that I am home! But we are back on track once again. It’s a gorgeous sunny Sunday and this morning has already been so productive!
