It's the day after. We did activating the core, stretching the hip flexors and plenty of back stretching.
Wowza! I have to say I can really feel I've worked on my abs today. Pilates is so, so gentle and subtle. In the past I've tried hundreds of sit-ups at all kinds of gyms. Yet this gentle class has made the most of working my abs.
I feel that, doing it this way - gently reminding your body that the core has a job to do (I'm 10 months post-operation too so very weak core) - is quite the way forward.
Now I know how my horse feels when I am doing those sternum lifts and dorsal reflex stretches.
Oh, and the gentle hip flexor work we did....Wowza again!
This really showed up how I am weak down my left side, and collapse over to my left. No wonder my right leg grabs ...that's obviously to stop me from falling out the side door. Even though it's subtle it's having a massive impact on Missy’s jumping and flat work.
Starting to feel I will be so much improved by next year.
