Mindful Connection

We don't generally think MINDFUL when we think about Pilates.   However, during your next class notice your mindful connection to your movements.  Joseph Pilates listed 9 principles of Pilates; Concentration, Control, Centering, Breathing,  Fluid movement, Skeletal alignment, Precision, Endurance and Release.    

In this fun classical exercise, make it challenging by perfecting your form.  How still can your hips be?  How much rotation can you get through your ribcage?  Try to press your back forearm towards the the ground behind you.   Play with your tempo; Go fast then slow.  And enjoy!
