One way to begin strength training is to buy a set of dumbbells and start moving them around. Over time, bit by bit, we come to understand that we can get better benefits by being more precise: we start organizing our lifting into sets and reps, measuring the amount of weight lifted, planning out which days to train, and so on. What a good trainer understands though, is that there is a step missing here.

The Art of Yoga
I have enjoyed a rich and deep yoga practice for most of my life. My mother practiced yoga when I was young and my sister and I would relish the shoulderstand pose throughout our childhood, if we could keep from giggling at the same time. I trained concurrently in dance and understood the importance of balance in movement--for safety, for beauty. As I have evolved, I have experimented with many different schools within Hatha Yoga and love them all for different reasons. I relish the gym yoga classes where we would collectively power and flow through the most challenging poses.

This is the forgotten part of fitness. Not has sexy as core training. Or pumping out a set of bicep curls in the mirror. Or wearing that tank top to show of your muscles. Hey I have been guilty of all that!

I am very fortunate that I have a job were I am on my feet, don't wear a suit and not looking at a computer screen for 8 hrs. a day. But I know some of you do. This can mess with your posture, core stability, breathing and your overall mobility. In other words feeling stiff. Do these stretches if any of that describes you. Enjoy.

BOD 365's Blog
Counting from the age of exercise Pilates is on the younger side. Pilates was first created by Josef Pilates in the early 90's. In the beginning he created Pilates to help strengthen those who were injured laying in hospital beds. From there dancers were the first to take to the routine and concept of Pilates. Today it seems that everyone has heard of it, tried it or is participating in Pilates.

  The other day we got into a discussion about twists iin one of my classes.  (That does seem to be what drives this blog.... a question or just something interesting in class about which I find myself musing).  I do not intend to do a detailed anatomical analysis, or literature review of research on twists, but I would like to make some general points on why one might wish to do them, and what are some things to think about in practicing them.
