Top 5 Pilates Blog Posts from 2016 That You Must Read

Top 5 Pilates blog posts 2016

A Top 5 Pilates Blog Posts list should be an obvious New Years Eve thing, but it wasn’t in my brain until I read through Joan Stewart’s Publicity Hound newsletter this morning and found her 10 Blog Posts from 2016 That You Can’t Afford to Ignore post.

So, without further ado, here is my very own curated list. These are the ones I believe to be the most valuable, not necessarily the ones that got the most traffic.

Top 5 Pilates Blog Posts from 2016 That You Must Read

1. Why I Do Pilates

Why it’s important:

It isn’t easy to find a clear explanation of the benefits of Pilates. Here I answer the question, What does Pilates do really well that other exercise methods may not? 

2. Breathing

Why it’s important:

We all have to breathe. It is important to our continued ability to function! Here is the science behind how we approach breathing in Pilates, and why we inhale to start many Pilates exercises. If you have issues with hernia or diastasis recti, this post will give you some answers.

3. Pelvic Stability, Pilates, and Back Pain

Why it’s important:

Every single client I have seen over the past 27 years who came in with back pain had an unstable pelvis. Every single one! Understanding pelvic stability is the key to dealing with back pain.

4. Why Pilates Audios Are Awesome

Why it’s important:

Most of us only exercise when and where it is the most convenient. We like to stay home or close to home, and do things that require very little set-up and extra stuff. Pilates audios are an inexpensive and convenient way to start or keep up your Pilates practice anywhere.

5. About That Colonoscopy…

Why it’s important:

Colon cancer is a preventable thing, and the best prevention is colonoscopy, where a doctor looks at the inside of your large intestine (rectum and colon), checking for growths and polyps. Here I share my entire experience.

I hope that you found this list of my top 5 Pilates blog posts from 2016 useful and interesting. Happy New Year and have a great 2017!
