Meet Instructor Kate Ryan
To continue our post with Classic Pilates, I would like to introduce Kate Ryan, my second instructor of my Vbarre class. Kate gave great advice when it came to working different parts of your body that we often sometimes forget.
It's all about the small movements and focusing on taking it slow. There's no need to do a million hip raises unless you're going to do them right because that will get you the best results in the end. - Kate
With my hips being my personal problem area (ladies you know how that goes), I wanted to learn a real hip buster to give me that toned looked. Being that Kate is pregnant, she featured an exercise called the Kneeling Sidekick that not only works the hips and core, but also works great for expecting mothers. By raising your hips and legs in small up and down movements will get those hips working and soon you'll be feeling the burn! Trust me ladies... you may feel sore after, but you're going to look great in those jeans!
This exercise is great for those that are expecting. I find that many pregnant women are intimated by Vbarre classes, but there are some amazing benefits to it! For example, this particular exercise focuses on strengthening the hips and giving yourself stability.-Kate
