EASY PILATES : THERAPEUTIC > PELVIC/ SPINAL ALIGNMENT>I teach simple easy pilates moves and stretches , at the same time the student gives me feed back about how that feels. This gives me important information as the body is highly intelligent. Working this way slowly helps eliminate old soft tissue pain THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BODY , eventually allowing for actual pilates (see below) where we go hard and create interior/ core strength and a new body if are willing to practice at home daily.
GENERAL PILATES : > BUILD CORE STRENGTH >PELVIC FLOOR >pilates combines yoga stretches and pretty triky moves that Joseph Pilates invented. It was the early 1900’s he was a dancer a boxer a yogi and a trapaese artist , war broke out, he found himself imprisoned but as well he had an injured spine and no one to help so he decide to heal himself whilst on his bunk – he adapted all kinds of found objects to aide his healing. …genius I love it. You will too . i think its the quickest way to get results…but we do need to practice at home.. ill give u a few exercises to practice each week. I was never a fan of home work but when it comes to our bodies …home work is essential. id like daily exercise to become everyone’s habit.
Regardless of how wonderful Pilates is like all things if done incorrectly can easily injure us. So when practicing it we must put our ego away and go slow . until the core strength is such that u cannot injure ur spine… then its a free for all 😉
BOOT CAMP PILATES : BODY SCULPT>HI CARDIO>we can only go a head with boot camp pilates if your spine pelvis are %100 .You MUST NOT HAVE SCIATICA .
Boot camp Pilates is a blast. I used to teach it with loud music to about 20 young women . It didn’t take long for us to be dripping wet . Its pretty much like being in a gym. I give you challenging work to complete . You breath thru it.. and get super fit, however like all things injuries can occur…I cant feel what the student feels.. so ask the student to stop immediately if pain begins… the old no pain no gain is bs… fact is . pain is a warning system .
EASY YIN YOGA > THERAPEUTIC >very gentle, easy stretches mostly seated or laying down with a focus on gentle controlled breath work. Using a chair instead of the floor is ok too.
IYENGA YOGA > DIFFICULT YOGA > when you are fit and strong I’m happy to go there, but until the hips knees back are string I will not . when I was a 20 yr old Iyengar yoga was fashionable. It became my first love in the yoga realms.Unfortunately I’ts very patriarchal in nature,push push – ignore all pain ! Eventually it caused much un wanted stress on my some what broken ballet body so I let go of the mind set and approached the same postures with a yin-soft- mind.
PRANAYAMA : BEGINNERS BREATHWORK > MAXIMIZE OXYGEN IN BLOOD > SOOTH VEGUS NERVE > BALANCE BRAIN CHEMISTRY Breathing isn’t rocket science, we’ve all been doing it day and night for our entire lives . What you may not know about the breathing you do when you sleep and move through your day its its all done via the subconscious mind. Another good example of how clever your subconscious mind is is this…. Have you ever driven home or too work but you day dreamed the entire time… AND you dont remember the drive? Given you had moslt likely been on that rd many times your subconscious took over. ! weird hey So… THE SUBCONSCIOUS HAS GOT U.
FOR GOOD LINKS ON THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND SCROLL DOWN.
PRANAYAM loosely translates to controlled breathing. we take the reigns from the subconscious for 5 – 60 mins.
WE control the in a and out breath…there are many ticky yogi trix.. they give me anxiety .
I use a simple de stress breath in for 3 out for 3… and hold…Via the nostrils always> if yr nose is blocked – u have issiues with catarrh- i canhelp clear that permanantly .
back to the breath if it feels good allow the 3 count to gently grow.. eg ..in for 6 out for 6 …always counting not thinking never speaking to ur self … just trust always u got this .
I find most new students love it..
There are a few rules…breath via nostrils.. take it easy ..dont get distracted.
The difficult part of breath work is discipline. We need to do it for more than a few minutes…. 10 mins at least is a good start.
NUTRITIONAL ADVICE : .SOME FOOD IS MEDICINE > SOME WILL KILL US SLOWLY > I studied natural medicine in USA in the 80s. I didn’t certify as I came home to Oz . However I did learn alot and have applied it since 2001 ive grown herbs for heart disease ….all bacterial issues… insomnia..low blood pressure etc etc … the majority of my knowledge is based on herbalism and bowel cleansing , managing pain naturally via alkalizing the body with good food. I’ve also studied permaculture aka sustainable organic farming , and learned a lot about the nutritional value of the weeds that grow naturally among us in our back yards . Providing we have never sprayed the area with weed killer these weeds really are super foods with the best nutrition ever.
MEDITATION : ”GO WITHIN OR GO WITH OUT” > THE GOOD NEWS IS IF U DO THE BREATH WORK FOR LONG ENOUGH YOU WILL MEDITATE. Over the past 23 yrs I have fine tuned 7 scientifically very easy meditation techniques…..They are not new, I did not invent them, I make no claim to them as many healers do .But I have studied and practiced them thoroughly. Ive taught them in over 700o classes thus have proof they work >>scroll down to find– the 7 paths to Samadhi.
