Pilates Summer Series – Day #11 (core strength)

It’s hard to believe we’re entering the final week of the Pilates Summer Series. This has been so much fun hasn’t it?

I LOVE how our Pilates sisterhood has grown over the past few weeks. Did you know there are nearly 3,000 out there doing this series with you? I love thinking about that. I am grateful for each and every one of you.

Winner Winner…

Without further ado, it’s time to announce the winner of the “Summer Foodie” giveaway bundle…

Congratulations @BENSONM83 on Instagram!

I’m so excited for you! Send me an email to claim your prize. 🙂

For the rest of you, stay tuned…we’re not done yet! Another BIG, exciting giveaway will be announced tomorrow.

Okay, let’s get out our mats and get down to business.

Today as you perform each exercise, focus on your breath. Breath is a key component in your Pilates practice. While you’ll hear me cueing your breath from time to time, I don’t want you to get too caught up in getting it just right.


Instead, I just want you to breathe.

Synchronize your breath with your movement in a way that feels natural and use your exhale to deepen your connection to your core. Inhale big, exhale big. Keep the breath moving.

Breathing is a proven way to improve your health, mental clarity and stress levels.

Enjoy the workout. 🙂
