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.

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.

Monique Molino's Pilates, TRX Suspension Trainer, and Dance Blog
 Today life is crammed with demands on personal time, energy, and space. When you continuously care for others without taking care of yourself, you reach beyond your capacity to function.  Like a hard drive with too much information, you essentially crash and burn due to these physical and mental imbalances. At a Pilates class it’s your time to recharge your batteries so you can rediscover your mind-body equilibrium. The Pilates breathing technique will help you to capitalize on your strengths without wearing yourself down.
