Decent session at pilates today, 5 of us and our private instructor who is very, very good.
We did many of the usual positions – most of which are tough. We did a rollover move similar to this:
I can get my legs up in the air but can’t (yet) do the scissor movement as I start to lose balance. Also, the move we do is not quite like the picture – you prop your hips up with your hands. Some of the people in the class can’t do this move and they’re encouraged to do it against the wall which is easier.
We ended on the pigeon which I find hard. It’s like this:
I’ve been doing pilates for 8 or so months now and really feel like I’ve improved and come on a long way. It was very hard to begin with. To be fair it still is. But now that I know how to breathe and because the instructor is very good – it’s become easier.
