An Introduction to Pilates

 

Welcome to my introduction to Pilates and thank you for joining me.  Below is a complete session you can follow along with me. The first 30 minutes consist of a thorough stretching routine to warm you up and find your limits.  The second half is Pilates and depending on your level of fitness you can complete this whole session over a week or do it all in one sitting. Plus I’ve thrown in a few extra challenges for you to build up to over time.

IMPORTANT NOTE – Please remember to go at your own speed.  You don’t need to complete this session all in one go.  If you’re new to Pilates take your time to ensure you’re comfortable with each of the moves.  If this isn’t your first time and you’ve built up your confidence in movement, then I look forward to challenging you further.  Remember, work with your body, not against it. 

This is your resource to refer back and complete time and again to build your confidence.  And as I always say, have some fun and go forward being perfectly imperfect.

Need more help or support in how you move?  Check out this stretching routine that is a great daily exercise for all abilities.

Let’s Talk About Snoring

It’s estimated that around 40 per cent of the population snores and regardless of the health issues (of which there are many), snoring can play havoc with your relationship.

Sleep

We all know that sleep is vital to our heath and wellbeing, but 2 in 5 Australians aren’t getting enough.  Not so long ago, most people believed sleep was a passive activity during which the body and brain were dormant. However, studies have proven that sleep is a period during which the brain is engaged in a number of activities which are closely linked to “quality of life”.

Australia’s sleep epidemic

As the statistics clearly show, most of us are walking around half awake every day, which means in all probability we are not living a higher quality of life we could be and other areas of our lives can suffer. Both psychical and psychological problems can arise by not achieving enough quality sleep.
