Started today with a bit of Pilates on my comfy new mat; my six months of once-a-week lessons have made me stronger and have made me feel a bit better about my body. I have a weak back and very soft abs and so I hope that my doing Pilates will help build better core muscles so that my back doesn’t get so sore.
A rather unexpected “side-effect” of my mat work at home has been the discovery that certain positions are quite the turn on. And yes, it’s just me doing them. I think it’s the pressure on my back from the mat and the rolling movements of my back and pelvis that do it. When my back gets sore or tight the movement must release the tension there and I feel so much better :D
