28 Days of Pilates: Day 16


Welcome to your Sunday stretch & relax session.

After a long week of hard work you certainly deserve it.

If possible, do today’s session in a quite place with closed doors. Light a candle and take as much time as you need to stretch, relax and rejuvenate your body for the week ahead.

    Love this calming stretch series – especially the moves that are good for the thoracic spine.

      Feels great doesn’t it? So important for a health back and our posture 🙂

    Thank you for the shout-out, Robin 🙂 This challenge has certainly inspired me to concentrate on feel-good fitness. Not just sweat sessions at the gym.
    As always, looking forward to today’s stretching. Trying to convince my husband to try it with me!

    Have a great day!

      You are welcome! I’m so glad you’re taking the time to connect with your body. It will pay off in more ways than you expect. 🙂

    I am so in love with your daily series! I am 50, don’t have little kids, but work full time. I still don’t have a lot of time to do an hour workout. Your workouts are so effective, simple and short!
    Thanks so much for making them for all of us to do! Renae

    • Robin Long 7 years ago

      So happy to hear that Renae! Thanks for commenting 🙂 And I know – we are ALL busy! So I’m glad that this series is working for you in your stage of life right now. Keep up the great work!

    I have never heard anybody suggest bending the knees to accomodate sitting up straight! Flexibility is something I really struggle with so that has always been hard for me. What a difference that makes! I love the way you explain things like that while you’re instructing! Very helpful!

    • Robin Long 7 years ago

      Oh good! I’m glad that was helpful to you. Yes, people often think that straight legs is the most important thing – but a good spinal position should come first! 🙂
