I was lucky enough to go and see the Body Worlds exhibit in New York recently. I had seen this before at the Science and Industry museum in Manchester, but it was many years ago and my understanding of anatomy has progressed since then. The number one thing I wanted to see was the iliotibial band and to understand more about it’s role in stabilising the knee.
This is Yoga Lady, we may never find out her real name or know anything about her, but doesn’t she look amazing? And there down the side of her thigh is the IT (iliotibial) Band. It’s a critical postural muscle and can be the cause of much pain or discomfort to runners. If you have IT Band Syndrome then do come along to class for some postural tips and IT band stretches.
I love this photo of Yoga Lady, I bet she would be happy to know we can see here like this!
There are Body Worlds exhibitions all over the world, you can see the current ones here. Don’t be afraid to go to one, it’s not gory, it’s fascinating.
I’m thinking of running a Pelvic Floor Seminar with a guest speaker, it will be Edutainment, you will learn all about the PF, what can go wrong and how to fix it. It will be a social event, not a workout, there will be wine . . . but you get exercises and homework as well, have a look at this video.
What do you think? Would a Friday night work for you? I’m also thinking of doing it as a fundraiser for Charity, what about Breast Cancer Care? Let me know in the comments or in class.
One of the best things about January is seeing all the new fitness wear right up ‘front and centre’ on the high street. And, buying new gear makes coming to class even better!

I really do love Pilates and I hope all my clients do too. For my little Christmas gift this year I had some charms made to show our love!
And, here also is this years Christmas card, me jumping at the temples at Angkor Wat. I’ll be spending Christmas in Cambodia so it seemed appropriate!
Class member Debbie asked me if it was really me in the Santa dress or had I photoshopped my face onto a Mrs Santa? Well, yes it is me! The original photo was shot at Hartshead Pike a couple of years ago, it was a fun photoshoot and you can read the amusing story behind it HERE.
I still have a few of these left, see me in class if you didn’t get yours.
I made a timelapse movie of Pilates at Stalybridge Civic Hall last week. I haven’t quite got the settings right, it’s a bit too fast!
Well done everyone who came to class, you rocked the Roll Ups!
It’s not just Pilates at Tameside Pilates. There are 2 Step classes, a fat burning session and 2x Fit and Fifty sessions. You can see the full time table here.
This is from this mornings Fit and Fifty class at Stalybridge Methodist church, well done everyone who worked out with me today!
