Pilates-ish is the new Pilates! Love your classes, Mariska. Your cues are perfect, and you're a fabulous teacher, but your energy and your sense of humour is what makes me tick (and laugh!), especially these days... when we could all do with a bit more positive vibes in our lives. Thank you!
Mariska has a great way of bringing shoulder strength and slight inversions (head lower than tail) into class that will open up new orientations for doing old favorites like hip abduction and extension. There are pushups in this class but so much more for not ignoring that upper body!
Doris K My trainer makes me do that exercise as a prep exercise for handstand pushups (which are definitely not happening for me in this lifetime). He does handstand pushups as if they're easy and something normal humans can do. 😉
