It’s February and many of us are feeling a little flat. We’re going to be bringing lots of techniques into our classes this month to work with you to feel rejuvenated ready for spring and beyond. You can expect breath work, relaxation, fascial release as well as ways to can boast our energy and get our heart pumping!
Are you foam rolling your IT band? Does it hurt in a satisfying way but not really changing how your IT band actually feels? Here we show you an adapted Pilates exercise using a band which lengthens your IT band, inner thighs, ankles and glutes. You will literally feel the difference instantly!
Studio owner Nic takes you through a 20 minute core workout in this video you can follow at home. But first she explains what "the core" is, (and what it isn't), and why strengthening your core is not simply about abdominal work and sits ups!
We think the foam roller has to be everyone's absolute favourite piece of kit, why else would our clients always lie on one while waiting for class to start?!
So grab your roller (available to purchase from the studio or on amazon) and follow Nic in this quick 20-minute workout which will release tight muscles, provide stability to your pelvis and tighten your tummy.
Feeling a bit tense? A bit tight? In need of a massage? Tight shoulders? Sore lower back? Check out these videos on tips and tricks to release at home and to keep your body feeling supple and moving freely.
