  • 2 Ways To Connect Your Pelvic Floor

    2 Ways To Connect Your Pelvic Floor

    The Pelvic Floor is essential for Women's Health and Fitness. If you're a woman reading this, at some point in your life you would have been told that you either need to strengthen or learn to connect your pelvic floor. You likely nodded your head sagely, as if you understood what this meant. But inside you were going "what the heck is a pelvic floor and how do I connect it??". You're not alone. In pilates, instructors will often instruct you to cue your pelvic floor. Then after you've had a baby, your Gynae will tell you that you have to do PF exercises. You may hear cues in your pilates class such as : "Zip up your pants". "Stop peeing" "Pick up a marble" "squeeze ....

    Amazing 12 Body Transformation From Yoga to Strong

    Body Tranformations are for everyone Don't believe me? Just look at Bronwyn's transformation. Bronwyn (57) was drawn to the Amazing 12 (A12) Body Transformation because while she wasn't overweight, she wanted to reduce the jiggle that plagues so many women. Also, Bronwyn felt that strength training was lacking from her routine. She practised Yoga and walked daily, but now post menopause, she knew how important weight training was. And she knew that yoga and walking wasn't going to cut it to reduce that jiggle. What is the Amazing 12? Founded by the legendary Paul McIllroy in Ireland, the Amazing 12 (known as A12) quickly escalated as the world's renowned Body Transformation Programme. ....

  • Fun Look At Pilates Vs Yoga

    Fun Look At Pilates Vs Yoga

    The first question I get from many people when I tell them I own a pilates studio here in Singapore is "Is Pilates like yoga?". Spoiler - it's not. But let's get into the details. I can see why the layperson would think they're the same. They've probably seen images of people with hands on the floor, who are normally barefoot, doing something resembling a stretch. And let's face it, yoga has been around for a lot longer than pilates! Some argue as far back as 5000 years ago! In a way, it seems that yoga is easier to understand because it's more familiar. It's been around for longer and spans multiple cultures. And yoga is pretty much the 'go-to' when people want to become ....

    5 Gym Machines Every Woman Needs To Start With

    I’ve been going to the gym to lift weights since I was 12. Granted, for about 15 years I was doing the same old thing, lifting the same old weights, but I was still lifting. And, I wasn’t intimidated by other people there. So fast forward 30+ years later, I have zero qualms about entering a gym, filled with buffed Arnie type guys, and lifting weights. Because I know what I’m doing. And that my friend, is the key to confidence. A lot of women feel intimidated by the men in the gym. You know the ones. The ones who look like they know what they’re doing. The men grunting and sweating away lifting the really Big Weights. Or, the women who are doing their ....

  • Introducing The Female Pelvic Floor

    Introducing The Female Pelvic Floor

    I’m sure you’ve heard about your pelvic floor (PF), and if you’ve ever been pregnant, been told by your gynae to do kegels to “strengthen your pelvic floor”, but the reality is - many women just don’t have a good grasp of truly understanding what the PF is. And they don’t know why it’s important, and they don’t know how to actually strengthen it. Or, they think they’ve been doing PF exercises forever but are stumped when they find out that they have a PF issue. Me and My Floor When I first started doing pilates before I ever got pregnant, the instructors that I had tried to get me to “connect my ....

    What every woman needs to know about menopause

    When a woman enters her menopause years, how she exercises and how she eats can have a huge positive impact for decades to come. “Since I turned 40 I just can’t get rid of my belly fat!” “It’s so embarrassing when I can’t get off the floor unassisted”. “I look at my parents and am worried that I will have poor health just like them” “I just want to feel confident as I age, sometimes I feel invisible”. “Every birthday that rolls on by I just get more depressed at how old I look and feel”. “I want to be physically and mentally agile”.

  • 5 Ways To Eliminate Back Pain

    5 Ways To Eliminate Back Pain

    Lower back pain (LBP) is incredibly common worldwide, regardless of age, and it affects your every day life. We get many people calling us with the goal of eliminating LBP. Although, at this stage it's quite common that they have reluctantly tried to accept that their LBP will always be there. Because they've tried "everything" and seen "everyone" but the pain is still there. We don't claim to have a magic wand to help eliminate this pain. I myself have been through it once. I had been on a 12 hour flight to London, then immediately we were on a 5 hour car journey, and to top that off, the mattress I slept in was just too soft. Oh my. It was then that I understood what sort of ....
