A good little article outlining why it is so important to keep moving. And as the caption says, you should be concentrating on strengthening your core muscles with Pilates!!
Getting back to full fitness after an ankle injury can be a painstaking business, and depending on the severity of the original injury can be very time-consuming. My YouTube channel has several exercises that can really help to regain mobility of the ankle and flexibility of the muscles nearby.
As October arrived so too did my latest course with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI). This one was 3D Standing Pilates, the evolutionary method which advances the essential Pilates principles into more functional upright positions. It was a intensive two-day course and was enjoyed by all! Roll on the next course in November!!
Pilates aims to improve strength, increase flexibility where needed and restore good patterns of movement. The classes I teach use mathwork Pilates techniques as a core programme but will always incorporate standing exercises. We spend an awful lot of time on our feet and learning to move efficiently can be challenging.
Balance pads are one of the tools that an instructor can use to make exercises more challenging as well as fun and these ones are ready and raring to go in a class near you!
My brother Robin Bourne-Taylor is Managing Director of this brilliant youth development model in Africa. One of the best anywhere in the world if I do say so myself! Their new website launched today and it would be great to get as many people as possible taking a look.
I am very happy to announce that I have four new Pilates classes starting at the end of August and the beginning of September.
An article in today's Guardian discusses research compiled at The University of Oxford about various professions and the probability that they will become computerised in the future. Thankfully the probability of Physiotherapy becoming automated is only 0.021. Looks like I'm safe for now....
I am very happy to be able to call myself Oxford's only Fully Certified APPI Pilates Instructor.

The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) was founded in 1999 and since then has come to be the leading force in the delivery of safe, effective and evidence-based Pilates. It differs from other Pilates institutes by being founded and directed by fully qualified Physiotherapists.
June 2017 marks the opening of tempus te.
