Physics Meets Core Strength

Katya Jones and Joe McFadden performed an Argentine Tango on Strictly Come Dancing last night, which closed with an amazing dance move – Katya (wearing heels!) sank slowly backwards to the floor, supporting Joe’s entire body weight mid-way, before levering him to his feet.  Impressive core strength.  I’m not sure if either of them does Pilates, but as a professional dancer it wouldn’t surprise me if Katya Jones does.  Her colleague and fellow professional dancer on Strictly, Karen Clifton definitely does Pilates.

Here’s the whole dance, or just skip to 01:30 when the show-stopping dance move starts…



Christmas 2017 Class Timetable Changes

Oh to be free to dance in the snow in your pants!

So, yes, Christmas is coming and the nut roast is getting fat. Embody Pilates will be taking a break over the holiday season from Friday 22nd December to Tuesday 2nd January inclusive. This means the last class before I break up (not literally) is the 1900 session on Thursday 21st December and the first class back is the 1015 session on Wednesday 3rd January.

For those most affected by the changes to the timetable, you’re welcome to book into one of the other classes taking place in the week running up to Christmas and in the week after New Year.

To close, a track from one of my albums of the year, St Vincent’s Masseduction.  Ooh those boots!  I’ll pass on the rest of the outfit, mind…
