Top Hip Stretches: How To Get Flexible Hips!

Wed, January 31, 2018

It’s so important to give the hips, and particularly the Psoas or the hip flexor muscles, the attention they so desperately need! Regardless of whether you have an office job and you spend hours sitting at your desk, or you are extremely active with cycling, hiking, running etc. it is inevitable that your hip flexors will be tight without proper stretching. It’s essential that we all focus on lengthening and stretching this area to prevent knee and hip injuries, to maintain the health of the hip joint and to ensure our pelvis is correctly aligned to avoid lower back pain. All you need for these exercises is your mat, so let’s get started!

Tue, January 23, 2018

It’s Summertime in Australia, and that means weekends full of surf, sun and sand! Today's blog is all about the incredible benefits Pilates has for not only improving your surfing technique, but also preventing, rehabilitating and completely eliminating nagging injuries. There’s nothing like the adrenalin hit surfers get when gliding across the open face of a wave, chasing that buzz is a true addiction! However, there is an exceptional level of skill, fitness and technique required to ride that wave and a lot of individual components of riding the actual wave that require significant strength, including bottom turns, top turns, cutbacks, re-entries etc. Then there is also paddling, duck diving, entering waves, taking off and struggling against rips and currents to consider, which require enormous amounts of stamina and endurance. To be able to endure tall of these conditions, it is essential for a surfer to have the perfect balance of strength, cardio fitness, agility and flexibility, and that is where Pilates comes in! Pilates will give you many benefits to improve your technique! For surfers, Pilates should be an essential element of your training routine if you want to achieve your best form and be in peak physical condition. Surfing and Pilates are the perfect marriage when it comes to fitness, together they give you the ultimate in power, strength, balance and agility!

Face Exercises: Non Surgical Facelift To Tighten Jawline, Firm Cheeks and Erase Lines!

Tue, January 16, 2018

I was introduced to these exercises by my 80 year old grandmother, and if you could see her you'd be doing these exercises every day too! She has a beautiful glow to her skin, it's absolutely flawless and smooth. She credits this all to her facial exercise routine! Your facial muscles play a critical role in the contouring and shaping of your face. These exercises increase circulation, improving the blood flow to your face to give you a healthy glow. They also work the muscles that lie underneath the skin to not only assist with firming, lifting and toning the face, but also decreasing the tension that causes fine lines. This routine only takes 10 minutes per day, you can do it anytime, anywhere: watching TV, in the shower, waiting at the traffic lights or even standing in line at the supermarket (not for the faint hearted!)
