As a Certified Pilates Teacher, I know that every spring, my clients will arrive for their session complaining of a sore back after they have been gardening. No wonder! All the lifting, pulling and digging is hard work and it's a strain on our spines. So I developed my Personalizing Pilates: Gardeners audio workout just for those of you who love to garden! After you've spent a day in the garden, investing 30 minutes of time just for you and your back will feel great! The gardeners program includes three files that will guide you through easy, gentle Pilates exercises that will strengthen your deep, supportive abdominal and back muscles and will counteract all of the forward bending that comes with gardening. Included with the workout is a free Ab Tutorial that teaches you how to use your breathing to activate and strengthen the deepest layer of your abdominals. These muscles are important because they support your spine, pelvis, and hips so that you get the most benefit from the workout. The gardeners workout includes easy, effective Pilates exercises that focus on stretching the tight muscles before strengthening the over-stretched and weak muscles. The exercises are gentle and highly effective.Finally, for those of you who are visual learners, a photo-illustrated document is included that shows the exercises in the order in which they are taught. This workout was created by and is taught by Sherry Lowe-Bernie, owner of Personalizing Pilates. Sherry is a PMA Certified Pilates Teacher, which means that you are entrusting your spine to one of the best Pilates teachers you can find. Sherry has over 25years experience teaching fitness and over 10 years experience teaching Pilates.
