Shall we Swan?

Swan and cygnet on the river AvonSwan Dive is one of Joseph Pilates’s original 34 mat based exercises, it’s shown in his book from 1945 Pilates, Return to life through Contrology  yes, you read that right Mr Pilates called his Method “Contrology”!

In the Sawn Dive we strengthen the spinal and hip extensors, which helps improve posture and tighten the bottom!  And, good news, this week at Tameside Pilates, we are all Swans 🙂

For those who want to get ahead . . . .

And, here’s the more advanced version of Swan Dive, Kimberley does it much better than me.

See you in class this week my little Cygnets!
