Alexandra likes to challenge us and that's fine with me:) If it involves much flexibility, I will suck at it, but I enjoy trying. My exercise area is fairly cool, but I did sweat. If you have trouble rolling up to standing, try crossing your feet. It's about 50% easier that way. I am a big fan of Alexandra and her classes! I look forward to next week's installment. Thanks Again Alexandra:)
Whew! This was a challenge for me and I'll return again to not just do the movements but to try to do them with some aplomb I thought this was just as creative as the rest of the series & really appreciate learning a lot and something new, such as the boxing moves. I didn't know that Pilates had some roots in the martial arts.
Hi Gary M, Thank you again for your sweet and helpful comment, yes cross the legs great advice! Or just do the squat part of the exercise without going all the way down. Aways it is so nice to hear you got a sweat with this class YES! Last class will be fun just think we are all adults with a big kid inside!!
Robin G. Thank you for your kind words & well done for doing the class you are stronger than you think! I guess we alI feel the same way as you, haha a never ending challenge LOL! I 'm delighted you enjoyed the variations! Yes, go back to and do this class again and each time it will feel effortless to you too (BTW I felt every move haha). See you on the next class. xoxo
Hi Brian B, well done for doing it and YES return and conquer this class you can do it! Thanks again for your positive and encouraging comment! I particularly love the martial arts elements of Pilates (control of movement, precision, intension, flexibility...).
