backbending

Peta Pilates!!

After a full week of teaching pilates, yoga and fitness I needed to treat myself and do my own workout.  I really love getting on the pilates reformer as it makes me connect with me core straight away and also lengthens and strengthens the muscles. The great thing is you can get creative with the exercises as well.  In this picture I was doing the backbend exercise which is perfect for opening the front of the body, especially the chest.  If you feel like you've been slouching over a desk all week a bit of back extension will do wonders for your posture.  Give it a try!!
