Pilates Challenge

Edit: I have changed this post to a Tuesday from Monday, as I wanted to do a race recap of Run Melbourne
So please enjoy a Motivational Tuesday instead. 


Week 4 of Motivational Monday – July Challenge

Just like with yoga I have been of Pilates for a few years.

Pilates is similar to yoga but different.

While yoga connects you to your breath along with your movements, I found that pilates focus on your core (front and back) and is a great tool for overall toning of your body.

Pilates also helps with flexibility, back pain, and increasing your strength.  All while using your own body, and body weight.  Tools like bands and or machinces can all help you with getting the correct alignment.

I would really like to go to an actual class where they use machines.  One day.

In the mean time I will just follow along to my Mari Winsor dvd.

Wish me luck.
