Re: No equipment Pilates standing work

Hello Alain, Sorry for the previous post, it was a little 'catty'. Just a few days ago I was teaching those exercises -I always use some of the standing Pilates exercises before the group Mats and I always finish with the more advanced ones- and someone who joined the group was upset that I was doin...

Re: No equipment Pilates standing work

Hello Alain, There are many series standing. With and without equipment. Furthermore, every workout should finish standing. Whether you are doing the 'contraction' series, the punches, the jumps, the balances, the Arm Springs (referring to the equipment, not just arm exercises) series standing, or t...

Re: Practice over time

Hello Alain, There are a few questions, so I will go in stages. ----- Joseph did go through an evolution. His US evolution (he was over 40 when he travelled to the US) was more in the conceptual and fulfilling part of the method, what was to be achieved. More than keep adding/changing/deleting thing...

Re: Pies, articulacion y estabilidad

Polo Sentado. Coge una barra o palo. Preferiblemente uno más grueso. Los rodillos para pies funcionan, pero trabaja con los dos pies a la vez solo si es lo suficientemente ancho. Parte 1: - Enrolla el pie sobre la barra, con los dedos hacia abajo, y haz rodar el bastón a lo largo de la planta del pi...

Re: Pies, articulacion y estabilidad

Fuerza. Cuando un pie está rígido, suele ser también débil -lo que no se mueve no se ejercita...y lo que no se ejercita... Básicamente, lo que lo mantiene unido es la rigidez. Al principio es muy difícil aflojar el pie a causa de ella: se necesitarían músculos muy fuertes para poder doblar un pie ta...

Re: Pies, articulacion y estabilidad

Los ejercicios en posición sentada se hacen mejor a la altura del Reformer, especialmente los de la barra. Las rodillas están a unos 90 grados. Si los haces en la Mesa usa una caja. La numeración que sigue no es el orden. Puedes hacerlos en cualquier orden. Suelo enseñar los números 1, 2 y 3 y luego...

Pies, articulacion y estabilidad

La encantadora Natalia Villa Comet me hizo una pregunta sobre la estabilidad y el arrastre de los pies en la persona que envejece. Como es una pregunta tan interesante, y un problema que comienza mucho antes de lo que creemos y es increíblemente común, decidí publicar la respuesta, fotos y videos de...

Re: Feet and Articulation.

Pole Sitting. Take a pole. Preferably a thicker one. Foot rollers work but only do both feet together if it is wide enough. Part 1: - Curl your foot over the pole, toes pointing down, and roll the pole along the sole of your foot. Try to really go from toes to heel. - Then to intensify the feeling, ...

Re: Feet and Articulation.

Strength. When a foot is stiff, is usually also weak -what doesn't move doesn't exercise…- and what keeping it together is the stiffness. At the beginning is very hard to loosen the foot because of it: you would need very strong muscles to be able to bend such a stiff foot. Also, like always when de...
