Find Your Flow® With The Twist

Classes | Pilates

Focus

Every Friday from 7 October to 11 November, we will be working on the Twist. This is a whole body program which helps us find the rotations available in our body. This is about Finding YOUR Flow with the movement. One of our team will be there each Friday to help you find the Twist variation for you.

 

The Whys: (Here are our whys, what are your whys?)

  1. Great for all over body mobility.
  2. Improves shoulder stability.
  3. Improves our balance.
  4. Helps to rebalance asymmetry in our body.
  5. Builds confidence in bearing weight through our arms.
  6. It’s a fun movement to play around with!

 

Common Restraining Forces In Our Body:

Shoulder, hip or ankle flexibility and/or stability.

Supporting Forces:

Having cushions near by. Choosing to be on the hips or knees instead of the toes.

 

Frame

(How will you record the movement? Choose one frame to work on)

How did it feel?

Were you on your forearm or your wrist?

Were you on your knees or your feet?

Were you able to get your head through your arms when your hips were high?

Were you able to keep your toes pointing the side of the mat?

Were you able to reach one hand to your leg and return to a side plank for the last set?

How many repetitions did you complete on your final set?

 

Form 

(What’s most important about this movement ?)

Getting the hips high and then getting the side of the hip back to the mat. 

Using the eyes to guide the spine into rotation.
