~ A play on plank 'n pike ~
Easing into the week with some stretchy pikes and some #functionaltraining
transitioning into and out of plank, squats and rotation.
Today's dynamic #fullbodyintegration
is all about that thoracic and shoulder stabilization and control in and out of these unilateral pikes. Everything from the arches of the foot to the cervical spine is involved in reacting to and anticipating these moves, and resisting the pull of the carriage. I'm using (1) @balanced_body
💚 Green spring.
Recognize some of these moves? I first demonstrated these at the back of the #pilatesreformer
moves in the #pilatesphysio
series with Anna @physiotherapystockholm
Until we can come back together I have been updating my site to provide both our videos in one WITH AUDIO!!! There you'll also find links to book sessions with either one of us. If you're considering getting a session with Anna, I suggest booking now before she has her little one!
As we come around to nearly the last week of this month, I have been reflecting how incredibly awesome this #pilatescommunity
has been to support each other and our campaign for #breastcancerawareness
. Let's continue to finish this month strong! 💪🏼
