Tips for New Pilates Students

So it’s 2015 and you just signed up for your first Pilates class (or your first Pilates class in a long time).  Pilates can be a lot to take in all at once.  It’s pretty overwhelming.  Just remember no one learns it all the first day.  I’ve been doing Pilates for over a decade and I’m still learning about it.  Not helping?

Trust me.  It’s worth learning.

Know that’s it’s okay to break it up into pieces.  Learn the moves.  Then learn the breathing.

And if there are a few things you’re stuck on like what is the different between neutral and imprint, check out this video.

Want a review of the basic principles (breathing, shoulder placement, ribcage placement, pelvic placement and neck alignment)?  Watch this video.

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.
