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.
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!

Here is my annual Christmas greeting. And, whilst I am here take a look at the 2015 timetable which kicks off on monday 5/1/2015. Enjoy your festive fun, I can’t wait to get back into the Pilates and Fitness groove!
We had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas, here are some of the photos we took. Thanks to everyone who was part of my Pilates Christmas!
Once or twice a year I order Pilates hoodies for people to wear to class. To keep things fresh I like to change up the design every now and then. I bought some ‘Pilates People’ from a stock image library and then set to work in photoshop to try and make a design, this was my idea:
I sent it to Marc my printer to ask if it would work for printing in vinyl, he sent this back:
I wasn’t sure which to use, so I asked Facebook and Facebook said that Marc’s was the better design. I accepted defeat with grace and reminded myself that I am a Pilates teacher and Marc is a graphic artist . . .
So, I am taking orders right now, see me in class or drop me a line here to see the colour options and place your order.
I’ve been keeping a food diary recently. I had a bit of a shock when I looked at the analysis of my day, the app (MyNetDiary) was giving me a warning to say that I had consumed nearly twice the recommended amount of Cholesterol!
Yep, it *looked* like my love of a Boily Egg had lead me astray and I was a bit confused because I was sure that Eggs were ok to eat. Some time ago I qualified for an NVQ in Nutrition and Weight Management but truth is that I haven’t really kept up with things, however I was *sure* that eggs had been given the Thumbs up. I decided to do some research.
It seems that the UK and US nutritional advisors do not agree. In the UK all major heart and health advisory bodies have removed the previous limits on egg consumption due to their cholesterol content. Whilst our friends over the Pond are still suggesting caution. My app is obviously using US data.
Here is some of the info I found:
So, I’m not stressing about the eggs in my diet, I’m going to try and focus more on my evil enemy – sugar – arrrrghh!
