Incorporating Props in your Pilates Workout – An Instructors Perspective

Yesterday we did an overview of the podcast with Courtney Miller and talked all about the creative process, today we are going to discuss incorporating props into a workout. 

Incorporating Props

You know those blue squishy balls we love to put between your inner thighs and make you squeeze? They are there for a reason! Courtney Miller describes it perfectly in this podcast by saying that she brings a prop in at the beginning of the session with the purpose of finding, for example, adductor connection, this gives the Instructor an opportunity to bring

Pilates Propsawareness there and cue clients to connect to their adductors. Then the prop will disappear and we will work the same muscle group without the prop so now the client has the awareness of where to feel without the prop. Later in the hour, the prop will come back again and its purpose will be to activate a different muscle group. The pattern continues through these sequences to really dig deep into our muscles. 

Have a question about why we use certain props during certain routines? 

Ask us! We are always eager to explain the ‘whys’ of our thought process behind your workouts!

Stay tuned tomorrow for ‘planning for clients’.
