My Pilates Journey – Week 10: My Last Week

16 July 2019

It’s my last week here at Bälans and it’s very bittersweet to be going. I’ve had such a wonderful time here and met so many interesting and interested people who I will most definitely miss. On the other hand I’m excited to get started on the next part of my summer researching for my dissertation, […]

9 July 2019

It’s week 9 of my Pilates Journey, which means that next week is my last week. This internship has been such a wonderful experience, so I thought I would take the time to think back on some of my favourite things about my time here. 1. The community at Bälans The clients and staff alike […]

My Pilates Journey – Week 8: History of Pilates

6 July 2019

This week I’ve been writing some articles about the benefits of Pilates, and through this found myself researching how Pilates came to be. I knew that Joseph Pilates invented the exercise form (a fact that I’ve quite enjoyed surprising people with (nerd)), but I didn’t realise quite what an interesting life he led. All of […]

My Pilates Journey – Week 7: Pilates and Massage

1 July 2019

One of the perks of working here has been the opportunity to experience sports therapy massage. It’s been an experience that I would recommend to anyone (sporty or not!). Before coming here I’d only ever tried relaxation massage and, as pleasant as that was, it paled in comparison to the experience of getting a massage […]

My Pilates Journey – Week 6: Pilates in Mind and Body

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

12 June 2019

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. To anyone who doesn’t know what apparatus looks like (hi Mum!) I’m on one of the pieces of kit – the reformer […]

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. What I haven’t experienced before is Pilates in such thorough detail. One of the main things that I’m learning here is the importance of the basics to getting […]

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 Journey – Week 1: Setting Goals

17 May 2019

Hi! My name is Alusha, and I’m this summer’s intern at Bälans. I’ve already met a few of our regulars in class this week and I’m excited to meet the rest of you throughout the summer. I was quite unsure what to expect coming into this job and I certainly didn’t expect how much fun […]
