AROUND THE CLOCK
Online Mat, Reformer, Cadillac & Wunda Chair Pilates Class Descriptions:
It’s time to rock around the clock…literally!!!
The Around the Clock exercise has been called a “stunt” and “A Commando Exercise” – one that Mr. Pilates advertised would help us develop muscles and tissues that regular physical activities could not. He stressed that we couldn’t just read about it, but that it must be done! And done twice daily. I imagine him pointing his finger at me and trying to get me agree to this daily regime!
In this month’s 50-minute theme we’ll be exploring everything that makes up this Commando Exercise. I like to think of this exercise as a mash up of Double Leg Stretch, Teaser, The Hundred, and Rolling Like a Ball. It starts by igniting a fire in our center and continues to warm us up as we rock and stretch, rock and stretch, rock and stretch until we’ve made a full circle (clock)…and then we get to go back. It’s fun and challenging, but sometimes just plain confusing!
Luckily, we have all month to figure out how to do all the pieces using all the apparatus!
Is it possible that in just one minute morning and evening – we can go “Round the Clock” like Mr. Pilates pamphlet suggested back in 1943? Maybe. Maybe not. But we do get to OWN our practice and we get to see what’s possible for us on day 1 and see where we are on day 31.
