"posture" — 2 posts
I have had many requests for a teen pilates class. What I decided to do, is a 60 minute posture class. When I was a teen I had rather bad posture, like many teens I see today. I grew very tall very fast ( I am over 6 feet), and was self conscious, but you don't have to be tall to have bad posture.

The format of the class is a one time 1 hour "posture" class, with an option to continue with weekly Pilates mat classes especially tailored to the teens attending. The posture class will include, analysis of students, gait analysis and stretching and strengthening exercises to improve posture. This will give the student a base upon which to build, I cannot fix a bad posture in one hour. The students will learn several fundamental principles, and how to work on these. After the class it is up to the student to set these principals in action, and continue to do the exercises at home.
If there is enough interest I will keep a weekly class going, containing classical Pilates mat exercises and other Pilates related modalities.

"Now Bassett, 24, is coached twice a week on exotic machines with names like the Reformer--and the benefits she describes sound miraculous. Two hours of work with no sweat has allowed her to drop from a size 10 to a size 8, sometimes 6. Her stomach has been whittled; her hips have slimmed. She has the posture and lanky gait of a dancer.
