Did you know, the biggest gift pilates has to give is making us more aware of how we (mis-) use our bodies OUTSIDE the mat or studio class?

So I like to lie on my back to iron out my shoulders and hips while I sleep.
I like to stand really close to a mirror applying my mascara to avoid thrusting my heavy head forward.
I make myself squat down to: reach the saucepans at the back of the cupboard / tie my laces / hide the last bit of chocolate from my husband IN the saucepans, just so I have an excuse to use my bum and legs (instead of my lower back) to stand back up..

When I’m not hiding the chocolate, teaching pilates or designing documents in the corporate world I ride a beautiful motorbike all over the place. I met my husband getting lost on it in Hackney..

Becoming aware of our habits means we can change them and prevent the build-up of everyday background pain. You have just one body: Sense it. Move it. Breathe into it. Expand and lengthen it. Strengthen it. Release it. Enjoy it.
