I have started going to this yoga studio and they have a lot of different classes.
One of the classes is Pilates.
I have done several Pilates dvd's and so when I saw that they offered Pilates I thought it would be no big deal for me to go try out a class. Boy was I WRONG!
First of all, I found out that I had been holding my feet wrong.
Second of all, I had been holding my stomach wrong.
Oh, and I had also been breathing wrong.
All of these things combined make for a very different workout than what I was expecting.
I left that class a little sore (I was REALLY sore the next morning!).
More importantly though, I got a good workout and a much needed form change.
This is one of the things I love about working out in a class or with a trainer. They are there to help you with your form, technique, breathing, and to motivate you when you feel like stopping.
Don't get me wrong, I love workout dvd's! However, it is important to make sure you are performing the moves right so that you don't injure yourself.
Have you ever tried out a Pilates class?
