The Pilates Reformer Book Excerpt:

A unique and detailed description of more than 100 original Joseph Pilates Reformer Exercises including many large photos. Have you ever wondered why the Reformer is one of the most popular, if not THE most popular Pilates apparatus? Wished you had a well-structured overview of almost all exercises? Wanted to add more variations to your Reformer repertoire? Then this two-piece book is exactly for you! While both parts are designed as training manuals for Pilates instructors and fans, "The Pilates Reformer - Part 1" focuses on Joseph Pilates' nearly 100 traditional Reformer exercises. "The Reformer - Part 2 " then adds the modern exercise supplements as well as the exercises with the jumpboard. (Part 2 is so far available in German. An updated English version will be available in the second half of 2021) Here is what you will find in Part 1 in more detail: Following an introduction to the history of the Reformer, the various components of the Reformer are described, alongside a number of important issues to keep in mind when using a Reformer. Furthermore, the manual provides a recommended exercise sequence for each of the four different levels: Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Super Advanced. In the main section of the book, large-format, color images are used to illustrate each of the 100+ exercises. For each exercise, the exact setup, the related goals, and a step-by-step description of its execution are presented. In addition, common mistakes, possible modifications or variations, and contraindications and risks are outlined. As a special feature, the original names used by Joseph Pilates are mentioned alongside the frequently-used names for the first time in Pilates literature. These Reformer exercises represent Joseph Pilates' legacy for a full-body workout.

Dance Medicine Science Guide Book Excerpt:

The inaugural actions of the Brazil-United Kingdom Dance Medicine & Science Network (BRUK NET) emerged through the organization of the symposium "The Potentials and Challenges of Research in Dance Medicine & Science: building innovation collaborations between the United Kingdom and Brazil" held in Goiânia, in 2016. In this bilingual Portuguese-English book, 23 leading researchers/authors from the BRUK NET write about their experiences in this field. The idea of the book is to share part of their knowledge and to build paths and theoretical, conceptual and methodological constructs around DMS, from where visibility, access and sustainability could develop. The desire for an interinstitutional, interdisciplinary, collective and supportive cooperation has enabled us to create a book of cross-cutting contexts and diverse views. The demand for DMS services and knowledge is growing. It requires that professionals from different backgrounds; dance, health, education and many others, ethically reflect and debate over the breadth and rigor necessary for the growth and valorization of this field of study.

The Pilates Effect Book Excerpt:

The true story behind this fitness phenomenon and its long, controversy-plagued road to popular success. While millions today find the Pilates system helps to strengthen the core, improve posture, and recover from or prevent injuries and pain, Pilates has been clouded in controversy since the beginning. Its origin story is one of greed, ego, celebrities, and lies, with heated legal controversy that threatened the industry. In The Pilates Effect, Stacey Redfield and Sarah Holmes reveal the hidden history of Pilates. From humble beginnings, Joseph Pilates founded the groundbreaking regimen in New York City and worked closely with his partner Clara to rehabilitate and renew dancers who had been injured or were aging. Although Joseph’s core strengthening regimen was touted as “fifty years ahead of [its] time,” finance and health issues plagued Joe and Clara’s business. A small and devoted group of followers, including Carola Trier, would fight to spread the practice that they felt gave them a second chance at life and rehabilitated their bodies and souls. A fascinating and inspiring story of fitness in America, The Pilates Effect showcases the people and events that formed an iconic industry, and reveal how it offers positive change for everyday people regardless of gender, ethnicity, or background.

Pilates Full Body Workouts for a Stronger Sexier You Book Excerpt:

ABOUT THE BOOK Pilates is a kind of exercise that works both the mind and the body. It improves strength without necessarily building bulk. It also targets the core (midsection) and other muscles that often get neglected by other activities. My introduction to Pilates happened at an early age. For most of my life, I was considered tall for my age with long legs and big feet. My parents thought it would be a good idea to enroll their lanky toddler in ballet classes. I continued those classes (and other dance classes) for over 14 years. In high school, I was a lean 5’8” ballet dancer and basketball player. I still had big feet, but they were complemented by long legs, long arms, and a long neck. What did I have to complain about? My midsection. I was relatively slim, but I had a pudgy middle. In high school, where appearances are everything, I wanted to do something about it. Fortunately, around this time, my dance instructor introduced the class to the Pilates method. She said that Pilates is based off of the ballet moves many of us had been doing for most of our lives. She promised that the method would flatten our midsections and make us feel taller. My dance instructor made good on her promise. After just 15-20 minutes of Pilates before we started dancing, I felt taller. Over time, I felt slimmer. I was hooked. I’ve been doing Pilates ever since, and I love it. I’ve taken classes and I’ve done several Pilates DVDs. Of all the activities I participate in (everything from running to basketball to kickboxing to Zumba), Pilates is one that I always come back to because it is really so effective and important. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Pull the part of your stomach area that is below your belly button upwards and inwards--as if you are pulling it away from your belt line.Keep your rib cage relaxed and breathe normally.You should be able to feel the muscle contracting in your lower abdomen. Another essential skill is being able to activate your pelvic floor. Your pelvic floor muscles are at the base of your abdomen. They control your bladder and bowel functions. They also stabilize not only the pelvis but also the lower back. If you have lower back pain, are pregnant, or experience incontinence, learning how to control these pelvic floor muscles can really help. How do you activate your pelvic floor?Start in neutral spine position.Contract the muscles you would use to urinate.Breathe as you normally would. Once you can handle activating your TA and your pelvic muscles separately, try activating them together. Ready for some advanced Pilates moves? Great! Here are six of the most common moves for experienced Pilates pupils. Because sometimes it’s easier to see the moves being done rather than reading about them, many of the links in this section are to videos. Advanced Pilates ExercisesThe Crab--The Crab requires complete control from your core, so it will give you a great ab workout. It builds on exercises like the “Roll Up” but is slightly more advanced.Start by sitting up straight. Bend your knees almost Indian style and cross your feet at the ankles.Bring your knees up to your shoulders and grab your feet with your hands.Drop your head and allow your spine to curve as your prepare to roll.Breathe in and roll back. Control the movement. Try not to let your limbs flail around.Once you roll to your shoulders, let go of your feet and switch your feet around. Grab your feet again as you prepare to roll up.Breathe out and roll forward. Inhale as your head touches the mat.Roll back to repeat the move.Double Leg Kick--This move works the back extensors and the hamstrings primarily, but it can be a total-body exercise as well.Start by lying face down with your head turned to one side and your feet together.

The Bathroom Key Book Excerpt:

Urinary incontinence is an underdiagnosed and underreported condition with major economic and psychosocial effects on society. Women are more likely to experience it due to issues with the pelvic floor brought on by pregnancy and menopause. The Bathroom Key is a treatment plan for women to cure their own incontinence issues. It also allows women to identify with other women through the anecdotal stories that echo their feelings of isolation and embarrassment. Written in easy-to-understand language, the book is a genuine teaching tool, guiding the reader to a better understanding of her body and effective remedies. Whereas in recent years some mention of the Kegel muscles and exercises have become common knowledge, this book is much more than just Kegels. By incorporating key elements of the physical therapy approach in this book, the reader will be encouraged to self-assess, modify behaviors, re-train her bladder, alter dietary habits, and practice a variety of exercises to self-treat and cure her incontinence. In most cases urinary incontinence is completely treatable with physical therapy. Women can regain bladder control, not have to take medications, throw away pads and regain their dignity. The Bathroom Key Is: Written in a "friend to friend" style that reveals the secrecy around urinary incontinence through real life stories of women dealing with the embarrassing and life-altering symptoms Advocates for PT as something that can radically help the problem Lists a variety of behavioral and practical exercises and allow people to self-treat at home (and also tells them when they need to see a physical therapist)
