I am Michaela Windsor, a Pilates teacher, and I’m lucky enough to had the opportunity to use the beautiful Cake and Catwalk garden to host my Pilates classes in.
This September I will be offering a Pilates Workshop for Runners.
It will focus on the exercises which are ideal for runners, to improve your mechanics and core strength, to reduce the risk of injury. Pilates is a dynamic system of exercise. It stretches, tones and strengthens. Pilates is famous for strengthening your core.
Your core incorporates the abdominal muscles, obliques, lower back muscles and glutes. In strengthening these with Pilates you become more balanced and thus have a healthier, stronger, supported spine, which improves your posture and your running.
I am offering a discount to Cake&Catwalk customers: just add Runner in the “Enter Coupon Code” box at the checkout.
If you are unsure about Pilates and its benefits this is a great article about the Olympic marathoner Julie Isphording, who used Pilates to rehabilitate her feet after injury. https://www.pilates.com/BBAPP/V/company/press-room/Release-JulieIsphording.html
She liked it so much she became a Pilates Instructor!
