Mini eCourse Introduction

This ecourse is all about helping you achieve your physical goals easily, painlessly and with long term benefits in mind. No latest fad quick fix, or high impact sweat and groan torture treatments here! Just a solid, proven technique laid out in an easy to follow program to get you started simply and steadily sculpt your body as you practice.

The technique you are being guided through involves Pilates, which is an amazing exercise to:

Treat injuries: Although for our purposes we are going to be thinking about those of you who have no history of pain / injury and those who have suffered with the very common nagging general lower back pain rather than any specific injury.

Tone your body: and most of us could do with rediscovering forgotten muscles and bringing back definition.

Transform: how you look and feel both physically and mentally.

This ecourse comprises a selection of some beginners’ level Pilates exercises designed to give you a good start with the technique. Pilates is all about building a strong, agile toned body through slow, carefully co-ordinated movements carried out with precision and control. There are no explosions of energy, impact or jolts to the exercises. Every action is smooth and flowing and very importantly the movements work in harmony with your breathing.

The exercises that follow are suitable for beginners but many can be further varied over time to make them more challenging as students become stronger and more agile.

Pilates can also be a wonderful treatment program for people recovering from injuries or who have physical weaknesses, as it was originally designed as a rehabilitation technique by Joseph Pilates. If you have suffered with non-specific general lower back pain, this could be the technique that gives you long term relief. Subject to your condition the exercises within this book can be used to improve your flexibility and build your core strength to free you from future back pain problems.

A mistake people can make is to try and exercise through a bad pain episode. Without detailed specialised knowledge and care that approach will easily aggravate pain and you will mistakenly conclude that Pilates doesn’t work.

CAUTION: If you are currently in pain or injured or pregnant, don’t attempt the exercises in this ecourse without an assessment and the detailed specific guidance and recommendations of your professional clinical advisors. They will counsel you before embarking upon this or any other form of exercise regarding what exercises or movements you should or should not carry out or any adaptations of exercises that they recommend. If in doubt, back off from exercise until you are feeling much better and then only attempt the program approved by your professional clinical advisors. During any exercise session, only undertake what you can comfortably manage without struggling and stop at any sign of feeling unwell or if pain occurs. Seek prompt medical attention if continuing to feel unwell or feeling pain after stopping an exercise.

Pilates works wonderfully protecting you from future back pain episodes, so ideally you would start the exercise course at a time when you are feeling reasonably ok. This allows you the opportunity to build a girdle of strength around your spine. Subject to your physician’s specific advice, gently working your way steadily through the exercises, you can gradually ease discomfort and build agility and strength despite low level pain. Pilates is all about controlled, slow, careful movements designed to develop a central powerful core that will stabilize and support you properly. You will also learn correct posture, breathing and movement to re-engineer your body, so that the weakness and bad habits of the past that caused pain remain something from history. No more pain!
