• Pilates March MATness

    This is the time of the year when the basketball tournaments begin, people start to skip work or stream their favorite team’s game at their work computer and sports bars are full. March Madness is in full swing for sure.

    March Madness that is sweeping the country while March MATness is taking the Pilates community by storm. So, what is this March MATness? It is bringing a focus back to the Mat Work in Pilates. Instructors and students of the Pilates Method all over the world are posting pictures of their Mat Pilates work to Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr just to name a few. Want to see some? Search for #MarchMatness and you will see tons and tons of photos, different variations from all over the world.

    One of my favorite photos is a series from Anula Maiberg of Sixth Street Pilates in New York. This is a great representation of some of the Mat Work found in the Pilates method. I love the way she adds a more artistic approach to the method. Plus, those vintage dresses are fabulous!
