Pilates Day doesn’t happen until this weekend (May 5, 2018), but I wanted to prepare you for the celebration. So, just early enough so that you can make your weekend plans, here are 5 ways you can celebrate Pilates Day.
5 Ways to Celebrate Pilates Day
1. Practice Pilates!
Whether at home or in a class, today is a great day to practice Pilates. If you’re looking for an at-home workout video, check out these free 15-30 minute videos by me!
2. Read up on Joseph Pilates and the Pilates Elders.
The best way to honor Joseph Pilates is by actually reading his book, Pilates’ Return to Life Through Controlology. However, if you’re not interested in reading an entire book, here are links to my articles about Joseph Pilates and the Pilates Elders. Also, here’s information about current Pilates industry leaders.
3. Build your Strength, Balance, and Flexibility.
Strength, balance, and flexibility are three essential components of Pilates. By choosing an activity that builds your skill in any one of these areas, you are honoring Pilates Day.
4. Try out Joe’s Inspirations.
Joseph Pilates was inspired by many already-existing activities. Whether you practice yoga or add some traditional calisthenics to your routine, you’re honoring the activities that inspired Joseph Pilates to create his program. Also, you can honor his early days in New York by taking some time to dance.
5. Take Care of Yourself.
The whole point of Pilates is to get your body moving and feeling good. Absolutely anything that you do to make yourself move and feel good will be an appropriate celebration of Pilates Day.
Happy Pilates Day, everyone!
