I finally got the trick ! The trick to take care of my body and my health. I’m already registered at the gym, but I wanted to discover a gentler discipline. My main goal is to strengthen my back muscles without weight. I have been a sportswoman since I was very young and I have been dancing for many years. Right in the center of my dance classes, a new Pilates class opened. Very curious, I was eager to try it !

I wanted to try a new method that would differ from the traditional glutes, cardio and body pump classes. Tired of gym classes, I chose a softer, more personalized method to refocus on myself.
Working on my back to improve my back posture was becoming urgent. In addition, I wanted to find an activity that would allow me to strengthen my muscles, especially my abdominals. Bingo! Pilates is practiced with a central position. What does that mean? All movements must start from the energy center of the body, the abdominal strap. Perfect for my small muscles!
Class to Practise
I booked my class on the website of the Pilates teacher, Marie.
Quite unusual, but rather interesting because the course is limited to 6 people. This is what I was looking for: not to be drowned in a mass of 40 people.
A one hour class with a personalized correction: the teacher encourages us, motivates us, corrects us if the positions are not good. One hour of awareness, listening and muscular effort. Marie is a passionate and attentive professional!
Prices: the rates are degressive: from 15 to 20 euros per session depending on the card you choose.
Results: more sheathed and stretched
I am very satisfied with my Pilates classes.
At the rate of two sessions per week, my belly has become firmer, my body became stronger and I feel a clear progression in my abdominal work.
I have done a good work on my breathing. In Pilates, the movements are based on lateral thoracic breathing, which allows you to better use your abdominal center.
Pilates is a practice that is both gentle and intense, to be practiced without moderation 😉
I invite you to discover Marie’s website if you want more information on the practice of Pilates in Nice. it’s here !
See you soon.
