So there I was, relaxing on the sofa the other evening, when I became aware of Gail moving around in odd positions on the floor and I suddenly remembered her complaining to a friend about how she found it both boring and lonely having to do her Pilates class online.
There are occasions which demand a dog.
Bertie to the rescue!
First I followed the instructor for a minute or two, to see what it was all about.
Having become an expert in both technique and terminology, I carefully checked Gail's positioning (neutral spine, pelvic floor engaged, tummy button to floor, no flaring of the ribs, headlights forward etc.)
Oh dear, there's something a little wrong with your position here. I need to check you're working those deep abdominals... and please remember to imagine that soft peach under your chin...
For some reason my interventions were not appreciated, so I decided to provide a bit of entertainment instead, to liven thing up.
Yes you've guessed it. Still not appreciated.
There's no pleasing some folk.
