What’s on this week: 30 October – 4 November


What’s on this week:
30 October – 4 November

Let’s take a look at Reverse Abs!
Dear <<First Name>>,

So, first of all, did you remember to turn the clocks back last night?? And secondly, what are you planning to do with that extra hour – or did you already have an extra long sleep this morning?  We imagine that, at the end of the half-term week, some of you need the rest!

We love it when the clocks go back and the Studio starts to get darker in the afternoons – it brings a different dynamic and energy to our evening classes – why not book in and see for yourself?  We have evening classes on
Tuesdays at 6pm and 7pm
Wednesdays at 7.30pm and
Thursdays at 6.30pm.

If you’re more of a lark than an owl, why not take advantage of the lighter mornings to get your day going with an online class from the comfort of your home!  We have online classes on
Wednesday at 7.30am and
Thursday at 7.30am.

Due to half-term, it has been a little quieter in the Studio this week.  We’re looking forward to seeing everyone back again this week and progressing the Stomach Massage Program – more of that in Community Corner below!

As it’s Halloween this week – watch out for one or two ‘spooky’ movements thrown into the mix on Tuesday!  If you’re going out trick or treating, we hope you have lots of fun.

Have a wonderful week and we look forward to seeing you in the studio or online!

All Things Pilates Community Corner!

We’re heading into Week 5 of our Stomach Massage Program – we hope you are enjoying it as much as we are enjoying sharing it with you!

This week, we thought we’d take a look at the Reverse Abdominals movement.  It’s so different from the more traditional abdominal exercises, you may wonder why we do it at all!

It’s actually really good to shake up our traditional movement patterns.  It means that we have to focus on our form and avoids ‘auto-pilot’ – it’s unlikely that anyone will be thinking of their shopping list while getting to grips with Reverse Abdominals!

When we learn how to do it well, it really does help strengthen our abdominal muscles.  But, as with so many Pilates movements, the benefits are multi-faceted!   It requires a strong core (muscle groups in the torso) to help stabilise us throughout our flow – we can feel our core working hard throughout the movement.  We know, from your feedback, that you can feel your shoulders, arms and hip flexors working hard – and becoming stronger too.

This is another of those movements where we have layered the complexity over the course of the program, to make sure that we find the form that’s right for our body, particularly as we familiarise ourselves with the movement.  For example, we might be tempted to work from our shoulders.  There’s nothing wrong with that – it’s just a different exercise, so you won’t feel the full benefit in the abdominals.  But, don’t worry – our teachers have lots of cues (tactile and otherwise) to help you.  For some of us, it may take a few weeks before we have that ‘eureka’ moment, when we feel the abdominals really starting to fire up.  That’s fine – in the meanwhile, you’ll still be working hard!

We hope you’re feeling the benefits of the Stomach Massage program – we can certainly see them in your movement.  We’d love to hear how it’s helped you in your day to day activities too!
