Breathing fresh, salt air 🌊🌫There is no better smell than fresh sea air, but start taking deeper breaths at the beach because it is good for you, too. The salty sea air by the coast does wonders for the respiratory system and those with asthma, bronchitis, sinus pressure, and coughing will notice a difference in their condition after just one day at the beach. Ocean air also contains negatively charged hydrogen ions that help absorb oxygen and balance out serotonin levels, resulting in more energy and diminished depression. #breathetheocean 💕 Salt Studio Pilates
Sharing my love for resistance bands 💪🏻. Move of the day: squat and reverse fly. Working the lower body in the squat, and chest/back/shoulders in the reverse fly. The best moves are those where you can work more than one muscle group at a time! 👊🏻🔥
Meet Afroditi ! So proud of your results...😀 "After sustaining a lower back injury my physiotherapist recommended I join Vanessa's Pilates classes. This was the best advise I could have gotten. I am living injury free now and have strengthened by entire body, not just my core. In addition to this, having just a few months ago had a baby, I am finding that Pilates has proven to be the best way for me to lose weight. I recommend this program as an essential component in everyone's weekly program."

hahaha! God knows how lazy I was... but I got out of the couch and did my workout! 45min! That's it! -
Don't give excuses to your self, you are the only one who you are betraying! -
My body was a bit weak, so I kept giving me excuses to not workout, it was all bullshit! Yes, I wouldn't be able to do any high intensity or high impact so instead of keeping giving me excuses to not workout, I searched for something more suitable for me today. That's the beauty of this program, I can find tons of workouts. So today I did a hybrid of yoga-pilates-ballet! Low impact, not boring, hard enough but also relaxing! 👌🏼✨
I did sweat, I did pumped my heart and I also stretched while holding the poses.
Now I'm happy 🤸🏼♀️💪🏼🙌🏼✨
Some people are intimidated by Pilates, which is a shame, because teaching your body to use some of your most basic muscles in the most basic positions is so important - and easy!

Efeito agudo do método Pilates nos valores glicêmicos.
Este método foi criado pelo alemão Joseph Pilates durante a primeira guerra mundial, dependendo do nível inicial de condicionamento físico de cada praticante o método pode aumentar a força, flexibilidade e resistência muscular.
Este tipo de treinamento possui muitos adeptos, sendo assim, é importante avaliar alguns parâmetros relacionados com a saúde e qualidade de vida, como por exemplo a glicemia.
Um estudo foi realizado com o objetivo de avaliar os valores glicêmicos após uma sessão de Pilates.(Rev.Bras.Fis.Exerc. Vol.10 Num.4-2011).
Este estudo foi composto por 11 voluntários (8 mulheres e 3 homens), todos praticantes de Pilates por no mínimo 2 meses e máximo de 1 ano.
Como resultado, os pesquisadores observaram uma redução significativa da glicemia após uma aula de Pilates.
A questão aqui não é simplesmente dizer que haverá redução dos valores glicêmicos após qualquer sessão de treinamento e sim apresentar o método como mais uma ferramenta que resulte em melhora das funções neuromuscular, metabólica e cardiovascular dos praticantes..💪 Principalmente para aqueles que não podem ou não gostam de realizar o treinamento de força tradicional (musculação).
Elephant time!! Quite a few great variations with elephant make it that much better (this one focusing on finding the deep low abdominals which releases the hip flexors)!!! 🐘 It looks like I'm not doing much but omg this is such an amazing exercise💜💜💜. While it is a nice stretch for the hamstrings and backline as well as shoulder stability and hip disassociation, it is really working through maintaining flexion and allowing the hip flexors to release allowing the abdominals to turn on a bit to find that stability, control and resistance as you close the carriage - feels awesome (in this version focusing on the lower back which is great for scoliosis)💪. Feet are grounded as are the arms and you work through keeping that length and building strength through that lengthened line 👍👏. Yes there are versions where you can put the feet against the shoulder rests and yes there are versions in different footbar positions and yes you can play with pressing away from the footbar more or rounding the back into the thoracic more so try them all and see what you like! For scoliosis, this is my concave upper side and flexion although feels impossible is gently maintained in this beautiful exercise that I love 💜. Press slightly more through the concave sided arm to achieve more openness in those ribs👍👏🙌.

❤️Full body, core-centric movement! It's not a bad idea to use a more stable surface to place hands on ( i.e. an elevated box or table like a Pilates Cadillac ) - but if you do use an equalizer bar, please make sure your shoulders are stacked over wrists and bar and don't shift your weight :) Upper body and core get serious work through stabilization and the quads on the leg pressing into the ball will be on fire! Enjoy that❤️
