I worked for many years in a corporate job before I started my Pilates business, so I know first-hand how uncomfortable I was after sitting working on a computer for endless hours. So I thought, "Why not do a Pilates-based workout that can be done right at your desk?" Well, here it is!
Most of us hold stress in our upper backs, shoulders, and hips. When we get stressed, our muscles contract and shorten and get very tight and weak. The most common complaints are headaches, back pain, neck pain, and low energy. My Personalizing Pilates: Stress Relief workout focuses on these specific areas and teaches you gentle exercises that help the muscles stretch and relax. Once the muscles relax, you'll notice that the stress has been reduced.
