My Theresa Workout #10: 3 Pilates Reformer Exercises

As I mentioned in my last #mytworkout, I often skip post-work out stretching due to my hectic schedule. While I don’t stretch regularly, I treat my muscles to the recovery they so deserve with weekly pilates or yoga classes. It’s during these classes that I dissolve tightness and tension in my muscles. When it comes to pilates, I am definitely a beginner and always work with an instructor. So please be mindful that my skill level is absolutely a work in progress. One of the things that I love about pilates is that it is super gentle, and half that time it doesn’t feel like your are even working. But please don’t be fooled, the results and benefits are impressive. For one, it really sculpts your muscles, making your limbs look long and lean. Also, pilates does wonders for strengthening your core and correcting your posture. A strong core and correct posture can positively impact your organ health and mental wellness.
