March 3 – The Roll Over
Here is my Roll Over (I love dorsiflexing the ankles during the roll down for that extra yummy stretch). You can see that I abandoned the toes reaching for the “mat” overhead when I realized that my misbehaving SI joint was not cooperating. I tried, though!
Two years ago, I had to bend my left knee in this exercise to account for my strained hamstring. It’s so interesting to see how, through the years, my body and my practice has evolved. As a Stott Pilates instructor, I have recently begun taking more classes and workshops that are more classically inclined. So the way I perform certain exercises has changed. I’m becoming a Pilates mutt!
My thank you to Pilates today is that even though my body and practice is changing, the Pilates practice still brings such joy and value to my life. This repertoire of exercises nourishes my body, even if I need to modify for whatever challenges I’m facing in that moment.
