Oh my goodness. During P.E. today, we did Marie Windsor's Buns and Thighs pilates tape. I could feel the burn within one or two exercises. I was so amazed. Like, as a dancer, you've got to have strong muscles, so I knew that if I was feeling it, it had to KILL for other people in my class. It was fun though. We'll do abs or like your core muscles in two days.

at my dance school i do a weekly stretch class which we can use for practice outside of dancing anyway i found that it was giving me flexibility but not enough strength so i started pilates and now i have a reasonably strong ches. my teacher thinks it will help me with my modelling too.

pilates is great for dancers especially ballet dancers. It has u strengthen your core strength but increases flexibility and keeps u in shape.

Great post.

We recently started buying the Pilates videos, and receive one a month now. It's really nice to have a variety to choose from. I'm 45 and so out of shape - I love the different levels that Pilates offers.

My daughter uses the videos to warm up her solo dancers that she works with. It gives the kids a different view of body movement, and it's also informative. A lot of times, dancers warm up and don't get the proper training regarding HOW TO DO IT RIGHT, and not get hurt.

Love your post.

Thanks.

Glad you found it informative. You're daughter is doing her students a great service by informing them and exposing them to various ways of taking care of their bodies.

Thanks for posting.
I just came from my second pilates class, it's great. It feels like I'm using some deep abdominal muscles for the first time!

I have the pilates DVD set too (although not Winsor Pilates) but they are amazing.. I have the MRA DVD's (found at mragroup.com.au) which are fantastic and have been approved by the Pilates Institute of Australasia.

Great post.

Love Angel

Hey, great post. I know that lots of people wonder about pilates and what it does for you, so this is a really good post. I do pilates 3 times a week, and I love it. It really tones up my entire body, plus, I feel very refreshed and energized after I do it, which I love! I would recommend pilates to everyone!!! Again, great post, karma for you!!!

I want my girls to take Pilates, I've heard so much about it, thanks for the video ideas. I will have to look into picking that up to do at home.
