Reminder: Basic Principles of Pilates

One piece of knowledge that Pilates provides that many forms of exercise do not is the concept of the basic principles. You can consider them no matter what you are doing in life. Whether you are exercising, working, driving, cooking, or whatever situation you might find yourself in, you can always turn to the five basic principles to think about your body and help you focus.

In case you’ve forgotten what they are, here’s a friendly reminder:

1) Shoulder Stability
2) Pelvic Placement
3) Neck Alignment
4) Rib Cage
5) Breath

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
