Pilates with Resistance

How do you use small equipment in the Pilates studio?    

Physical Benefits of Resistance Apparatus Training
• Increased muscle strength
• Increased tendon strength and toughness
• Increased ligament strength and toughness
• Increased bone density
• Increased flexibility
• Improved postural support

Also weighted balls, therabands and fitness circles are easy to transport and take with you to your classes.    

It is important to use your resistant apparatus with intention for the safe execution of the exercise.  

Come join me on Sunday February 19th to spice up your mat classes with resistant apparatus.  http://www.pilatesinguelph.com/continuing-education    




Interested in the Reformer?  The Pilates Reformer adds a lot of support for your body. This allows you to access your stabilizer muscles, and deep core more effectively because you don’t have to ‘cheat’ your way through exercises – meaning you get the very most out of your effort, time and money.

The Reformer is great for those starting out and for athletes to refine their mechanics.   

This exercise is rolling back.  It is a great core exercises to feel your torso muscles.  The key here is to move from your pelvis, anchor your hamstrings into the carriage and focus on opening your hips.
