Pilates Inspiration – Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace

Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace in Dance 'Til Dawn

The video below features former World Argentine Tango champions, Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace performing The Last Tango, a beautiful example of all eight principles of Pilates in action:

  • core strength or centering
  • alignment
  • breathing
  • co-ordination
  • relaxation, i.e. only using the muscles needed to execute a movement, allowing the others to relax
  • flowing movement
  • stamina
  • concentration.

See for yourself…

 

Bonus item… Regular visitors to the website will now that EP HQ is very interested in body art.  This week we came across the photograph below of a famous female musician painted by Swiss surrealist artist (and designer on films such as Alien and Prometheus), H R Giger.

Can you work out who the woman is and who took the photo?  The answers are in the tags listed at the foot of this news item…
