Yesterday I spoke about how good exercise made me feel during a time in my life when things weren’t going well.
One of the reasons I love teaching is seeing my clients leave class happier, more energised and smiling (even if during the class I get lots of evil looks)! I love that I can see them improving and getting fitter and stronger. I love seeing them feel more confident about themselves.
Why do I teach Pilates and Burlexercise?
I love teaching and doing Pilates. I love how it incorporates breath, alignment, balance, strength and flexibility. Pilates follows 6 principles; centring, control, flow, breath, precision, and concentration.
So many people come to Pilates after they’ve hurt their back and they’ve been referred by a physio, osteopath or a friend. Pilates builds a strong core, which supports the back. It increases flexibility, which stretches all the tight muscles that can be pulling on the back muscles. It builds a strong body, especially strong glutes, that again support the back.
One of my clients had a slipped disc after her second child. The following 26 years meant she would suffer from a bad back 2-3 times a year. During the bad back periods, which would last about 2 weeks, she would need painkillers as the pain was very bad, to spend a lot of time lying down and not being able to move much.
She started Pilates in 2012, averaging 2 classes a week, mostly mat classes. 2014, less than a year and half after she started, was the first year she didn’t suffer any back pain. Since then she’s had no episodes of back pain!
26 years of back pain gone in a year and a half!!
Let that sink in!
If that’s not a reason to love what I do, I don’t know what is!
