Joseph Pilates Quote of the Week:

"The art of contrology proves that the only real guide to your true age lies not in years or how you THINK you feel but as you ACTUALLY are as infallibly indicated by the degree of natural and normal flexibility enjoyed by your spine throughout life." ~Return to Life Through Contrology

Fun Friday -- Pilates Fails (Do NOT try these for yourself! Learn from others' mistakes!)

These are two exercises we are NOT going to perform in class!  Do NOT attempt these at home, because then you'll really be needing some serious Pilates work, if not something more drastic. 

This first one starts out impressively (though Joseph Pilates certainly never had this in his exercise regimen), but then he seems to crave a very aggressive form of spinal realignment.

OK, so this may not be truly funny, but I'm sorry, I just can't stop laughing every time I watch it.  Talk about increasing flexibility!

Have a fabulous Friday!  Well, at least better than these two people...
