Do you wonder why I always start my Pilates classes off with neck mobility ?
Well let me tell you...
“A strong spine is a happy spine” - quote from Joseph Pilates, himself.
Pilates also stated that “a man is as young as his spinal column”.
Being able to twist and turn is an everyday demand that we put on our bodies.
Practicing how to do it correctly and conditioning the muscles that promote this movement makes for a happier and healthier you.! FREE VIDEO INCLUDED...
Muscle Focus: Abdominals and Hamstrings.
Aims: Spinal Articulation and to encourage awareness of lateral breathing.
I’ve always had problems with my hips. I was actually born with both my hips dislocated (the head of the femur is completely out of the socket) which is quite uncommon to have both.
From birth until I was around 6 months I had to wear a plastic brace over my nappy to keep my legs laterally rotated outwards.
My hips have always felt tight and particularly uncomfortable when I exercised - until I found Pilates !
My hips were fine rotating outwards and this is the position my hips spent most of their time, although I struggled with internal rotation.
