New Adventures becoming a Pilates Teacher

Hello my beauties!!!
Hope your all having a fabulous week isn't it going so fast, its Thursday already!! Bring on the weekend!!!

So as many of you know I am a gymnast and have been for many years so i do like to keep fit and active. I have been looking up Yoga and Pilates classes and was not sure what all the fuss was about. I have read so many fantastic reviews and always like to throw myself into something new that i signed up to train as a Pilates instructor. I am so excited to start this new journey and can't wait to share it all with you.                                     


So what is Pilates? 
Pilates has been going for a very long time and was developed by Joseph Pilates. It composes of 6 main principles being Centering, Control, Flow, Breath, Precision and concentration. Pilates emphasises quality over quantity so it not about how many repetitions you do but how well you do them.  

What difference to Yoga? 
Many people think that Pilates and Yoga are roughly the same thing but there are some differences. Pilate’s moves are not held for such long periods and involve more lying, sitting and kneeling moves.  
Pilates moves use resistance and concentration on breathing in the rib cage so the chest, sides and back expand on inhalation but the waist does not.  
A mat-work Pilate’s session will burn slightly more calories than a yoga class, by virtue of a faster pace and the use of weighted resistance.
