Pilates using the CORE Band

Today, a group lesson in the Pilates system is very different from the same class several years ago, because a lot of new equipment has appeared – rings, balls, rubber shock absorbers, belts, yoga belts. The purpose of all these tools is to improve your practice, but there is one new invention that was created exclusively for working on the mat. This is the CORE Band.

This tape was invented in order to increase work efficiency and help to better understand the Pilates method while working on the mat. It allows you to use your own body as resistance, which makes working with the tape something similar to working on the Reformer.

How does it feel to be a student of the legendary Lolita?

Being a student of Lolita San Miguel is not only a great honor, but also a responsibility. When I went to study with her, I did not fully realize how global her impact on me would be. In addition to the knowledge gained (this was the main motive to learn from Lolita), I received a status that I must comply with because everything connected with the signature of Ms. Lolita San Miguel is a sign of the highest quality.
In order, I first took a two-year PMMP (Pilates Master Mentor Program) course. This is a training program for education professionals. Lolita does not teach Pilates here. Carefully selected program participants must already have a good command of the method, have a Diploma of the School recognized by it, and meet a number of criteria. This is a Continue reading
