Breath & Flow in Pilates Classical Reformer, the Theme of Day 6

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: Advanced, Intermediate
Focus :   

Breath in Pilates and fluidity in our movement is our theme of the day. I’ve chosen a focus for today as our work remains the same each even day, the exercises don’t change. So, from the 6 principles of Pilates which are:

Breath

Concentration

Control

Flow (fluidity)

Centering (move from core out as well as mind-body awareness)

Precision

I chose both breath and flow for our focus today. I couldn’t quite pick one only, lol. This means I will spend less time explaining set ups and even a little less teaching points and cues. It’s time to start tuning into your own body and movement and see if this can become a more fluid flow. I hope you are excited at the end of today’s session as I was and couldn’t believe how much quicker it went! If you liked this, then drop me a comment below and I will continue to do this in week 4!
