Put Your Best Foot Forward Bunions, fallen arches, curled up toes and plantar fascitis beware- some simple exercises can combat and conquer these problems! These exercises have been reforming and refreshing tired achy feet for decades. Little devices- such as elastic bands off the head of a bunch of broccoli, a tennis ball or your hand towel that innocently hangs in your bathroom, can be formidable weapons in the war against foot pain. These tools, used correctly, really get the circulation going. Beginning from the bottom up, at the start of a day or as a sweet ending the choice is yours - either way you win. For thousands of years the benefits of reflexology have been enjoyed. This book takes it further -by increasing ankle stability, flexibility, alignment and propulsion. These exercises are often used to help develop speed for an athlete and the arch jump of the dancer. At the end of the day- it just plain feels GREAT. Here is my favorite exercise to become refreshed and revitalized- from the bottom up! This book is for everyone- to prevent pain, to relieve pain or to move you forward with strength and alignment.

Pilates is a particularly safe and effective exercise system which aims to strengthen the body in a balanced way by specifically improving the function of the weaker muscle groups. Emphasis is placed on strengthening the muscles of the trunk so that support of the spine increases plus posture and shape improve. The exercises enhance overall flexibility and fitness, improving co-ordination and balance. Muscles are gently stretched and lengthened as the exercises progress and overall body strength improves.

This new Revision of the popular Pilates Primer contains all of the original Pilates Primer content and materials (copies of both of Joseph Pilates original two books: Contrology and Your Health) and another almost 100 pages with significant writings on the latest developments in the Pilates world of trainings and instruction in recent years.
Much has changed in the 21st Century since 1934 when Joseph Pilates wrote his first book (Your Health) about fitness and health. His second book in 1945, Return to Life through Contrology, contains his detailed and definitive series of exercises.
Both of these original books were copyrighted and republished by us, and are incorporated into this new Revised edition under the new and broader title, Pilates Evolution. This Revision has received dramatic and extensive updates for the 21st Century and is the natural evolution of his original writings, elucidating, expanding on, and demonstrating where Pilates' fitness is moving currently.
Inside this new book, Pilates Evolution, you will find all the Pilates' Primer pages and much more:
• Joe's original exercise photograph sequences, poses and instructions.
• Joe's original words explaining his very personal Twentieth Century philosophies, principles, and theories about health and fitness.
• The very latest in 21st Century enhancements to Pilates' exercises, using variations in body positioning, balancing, centering, and aligning, both with and without additional exercise props.
Joseph Pilates based his work on the concept of a balanced body and mind espoused by the early Greeks. Learn in this book how current practitioners of Pilates in the 21st Century expand upon Joe’s earlier work. Read and see photographic sequences about creative approaches involving circular movements, standing postures, and core strengthening exercises using props such as tubes, weights, poles, bands, magic circles, mini-balls, stability balls, foam rollers and more.
- Props and unstable surfaces can make Pilates more challenging.
- Paperback, black and white, 256 pages.

|Hack Your Low Back With Pilates Reformer Stretching
Lowest new price: $19.99
List price: $19.99
Author: Anthony Lett
A hack is an innovative and unorthodox way to crack a big problem. Although stretching is not a new prescription for managing and alleviating chronic low back pain, doing it on a Pilates reformer, with precision cues and 3D images is definitely novel. The Pilates reformer makes performing your exercises incorrectly very difficult- a critical point in ensuring exercise adherence and positive outcomes in rehabilitation. It also allows safe and intricate movements so that you can relax and find just the “right spot” for you. Fabulous 3D images mean no more guesswork, no wondering “am I doing it right?” Chronic low back pain has hit epidemic proportions in the developed world. Costing billions in inactivity, lost work days and healthcare costs, it is a problem brought about primarily by the mismatch between our modern environments and our ancient bodies. Bodies that evolved over millions of years to be both strong and supple. Pilates reformer stretching can assist in restoring your function and managing your pain. Tried and tested over a 20-year period with many thousands of clients, the simple cues and safe stretches in Hack Your Low Back may well rid you of the pain, frustration, sense of fatigue and depression that so often accompany chronic dysfunction.
