Bev talks Pilates

Coach Bev Carter
The general thoughts of Pilates as a work out are 'core' & yes our core stability muscle awareness & strength is so important yet Pilates is so much more than a 'core' workout.
The principals that I follow as a teacher are
  • Breathing
  • Axial elongation/core control
  • spine articulation
  • Organisation of head neck & shoulders
  • Weight bearing and Alignment of the Extremities
  • Movement Integration
So perhaps you can see in these 6 principals that there is so much more to Pilates.
For me to see someone be able to move their body in harmony, painfree & effectively is priceless as this is quality of life.
Every 'body' is different having unique needs & concerns. Pilates for me is the most gentle & effective movement that benefits everyone. There are many modifications to make exercises 'do able' 'safe' and so you can get the benefits you need.
Cueing from your instructor should always involve all the relevant principals (from above) and also give you an emphasis of each exercise so you can focus on the correct intention.

Pilates is a quiet & focussed work out that brings almost a medative effect along with a feeling of rejuvenising rather than exhaustion.  Yet at times it can be challenging. Pilates isn't about 'going hard' 'feel the burn' and pain.  So for some of you used to those feeling it may take awhile to adjust but change your mindset and check in with your intention of why you are doing Pilates.  Also if your instructor is taking you to these places then perhaps they are operating on different principals. When you do  surrender to the gentleness an inner sense of empowerment & strength will shine.
Words that in my opinion shouldn't be heard in a Pilates session
  • Brace
  • Switch on
  • Flatten back
  • pull belly button into spine
  • No pain no gain
  • Chin on chest
  • Hold your breath
  • Collapse
Feelings that shouldn't to be felt in Pilates
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Neck exhaustion
  • Shoulder pain
  • Muscle exhaustion
  • Pressure in your belly
  • Bulging belly
  • stress
if so please stop and ask for assistance

Benefits of Pilates
  • Improved Back care
  • Posture
  • Conscious movement
  • better concentration
  • Stress Relief
  • improved Core stability
  • increase strength
  • increased mobility & flexibilty
  • More energy
  • feelings of acheivement :)
Pilates is the perfect work out at your work place, home as you need no equipment or a shower..... No excuses

Move & Groove in May

I couldn’t help but smile and fall in love with nana.  Yet there was more.....It got me thinking, when was the last time I felt like dancing spontaneously without a care in the world? Some of you know I am a particular lover of music and dance; I can even remember dancing as a young child with free abandonment in front of my parent’s patio doors as that was the best mirror I could find!  Does this sound familiar to any of you? How about singing into hairbrush & even playing the air guitar?? So why do we stop doing what brings us such joy?
Who is going to join me Move & Groove in May?

Simple, fun & makes your body feel great!
