Pilates stick online 4/2 @8:30
Reformers for sale: $4.29 at Big Y!
Today, in addition to using our pilates stick, Marybeth used washcloths, paper plates, and 2 sides of a cereal box as props to replicate exercises we usually do on the reformer. The props became the carriage on the reformer. Placing our feet on the paper plates (or parts of a Kashi box) we were able to slide our legs apart and pull them together, using our thighs and challenging our balance (think “Pick the flowers” sequence on the reformer). So simple and so awesome. We also used them to enhance some mat exercises. No idle hands, no devil’s workshop at Marybeth’s house during the shutdown: she’s working hard to keep us fit and sane. Thanks for your creativity, MB-today’s class was a blast!
