23 June 2019

Last week’s blog post revisiting my goals got me in a reflective mood, so I was thinking back on the other ways that Pilates has impacted my life. One of those ways is quite different to it’s impact on my goals for my time here: just having the opportunity to do exercise every day has […]

My Pilates Journey – Week 5: Revisiting My Goals

I’ve reached the halfway point of my internship and I thought now would be a perfect time to revisit the goals I made in my first blog post. Since the start of my blogs, I had planned to do a half way check in this week, but I had imagined that I had written better […]

My Pilates Journey – Week 4: Springs and Things

7th June 2019

This week, in amongst helping with the marketing at Bälans and being used as a body for the Lolita’s Legacy Pilates Teacher Training Course, I’ve also been getting to grips with apparatus classes.

My Pilates Journey – Week 3: Back to Basics

27th May 2019

As we’ve seen in my previous blog posts about my goals and attending BarreConcept, I’ve had some experience doing Pilates before I came to work at Bälans.

My Pilates Journey – Week 2: The Magic of Barre

24th May 2019

I’ve come out of every class I’ve attended here at Bälans and noticed how much taller I’m standing. This was most obvious after the BarreConcept classes. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s ballet-based, and so I stand up straighter in an effort to be elegant or just the general magic of Barre. Either way, […]

My Pilates Internship Journal – Week 2: Hello, Pilates

21 January 2019

I am developing the depth perception of Pilates – perceiving it in three dimensions and I found it is intriguing and really knowledge-based which is perfect for me, a college student. In my first Pilates class, I could feel that breath is an essential element in Pilates as it is in other fitness systems, like […]

14 January 2019

My Pilates Internship Journal – Week 1.5: Hearing From My Body I woke up right before my alarm for a whole semester. I intentionally made myself exhausted from my coastal run so that I would fall asleep for a longer period. But it didn’t seem to work. I thought it was the school work – […]
