Had my first pilates class today, in fulfilment of one of my new year’s resolutions. The idea is that the pilates will improve my core strength and help me get better at tkd. Also I hope it will improve my posture as I tend to slouch and I’m sure that it’s going to leave me with a bad back in a few years.
It was very, very gentle. Very slow, slight movements with the emphasis on breathing and pulling your tummy in. I suppose the idea is that you get the basic principles in place before you start doing anything challenging. But I’m certainly not going to get a washboard stomach doing what we did today! I’ve paid for 5 lessons, so we’ll see how we go.
