Online Mat, Reformer, Cadillac & Wunda Chair Pilates Class Descriptions:
We spend a lot of time in life looking ahead to what’s next and/or working towards something instead of celebrating where we are in the current moment. We forget to look back and see how far we’ve come.
It got the OPC crew thinking about how we tend to do this with our Pilates practice, too. We are always working towards something…the nemesis exercise, a higher lift in an exercise, a longer reach, a stronger connection, etc.
How about we spend some time this month celebrating where we are each day? And maybe we even take ourselves back a touch and become a bit De-RANGED from our current practice?
“De-Ranged” meaning we reduce our range of motion and observe what happens. Reducing our range may help us gain some insights about ourselves we can use to take our practice farther this month and into the beyond.
This month, we are challenging ourselves and YOU to take a look at where you are while you decrease your range and see if you learn something about yourself – without ANY judgment!
Try asking yourself some of the questions below throughout your practice:
Is this making the exercise more or less challenging?
Is this making things more or less stable?
Am I finding a connection a bit more easily or is it harder?
Am I finding a muscle that is trying to take over the exercise?
Am I finding I have to focus more to get a muscle to engage/connect?
Am I finding an area that is a bit tight and needs a little more stretch?
Feel free to share your reflections and ask us questions this month if you are wondering what any of this means in your body!
Props needed: 2×4 (Kuna board) and the long box (from the reformer)
