One week into covering Andy’s Pilates Fitness classes and I am really enjoying it.
Thanks to everyone for their comments and feedback after the classes. I‘ve taken the opportunity of Andy’s absence to introduce a new piece of Pilates equipment. The Magic Circle provides gentle to moderate resistance during pilates exercises. It also provides feedback to the body aiding proprioception and muscle recruitment. As you may have guessed they also make the exercises a hell of a lot harder!
Disappointed at the weekend with the Rugby results especially Scotland coming and plundering our farewell party at Croke Park. Maybe the Irish rugby team need a little more steel…. Check this link out of a rugby club trying some pilates. There seems to be a little bit too much heavy breathing going on here. It is good to see more and more Rugby teams identifying the benefits of pilates to injury prevention and performance. Andy and myself hope to add a reformer to the JUMP Physio clinic in the end of April. This will hopefully allow us to provide a greater number of options in terms of rehabilitation and pilates.
