Spring is always one of my favorite times of the year. There is so much to look forward to. March always signals rebirth to me, the days start to get longer, the temps get warmer, the trees and flowers make their return. April is a month of joy and celebration. My husband’s birthday is April 1st and mine is April 30th, so we celebrate US all month long. AND..every year, one of my favorite Pilates teachers, Benjamin Degenhardt holds his March Matness challenge, which I always look forward to.
Once I again I will be participating in March Matness this year. I think this makes my third year participating. During March Matness, every day across the globe, Pilates fans share their love of Pilates by posting pictures and videos of the traditional Pilates mat exercises created by Joseph Pilates all across social media. Last year, I did a daily blog post about the exercises including benefits and how to execute the exercise.
I encourage you to participate this year as well. You can find the list of exercises on the March Matness website. Use the hashtag for the exercise each day as well as the hashtags #mm16 #marchmatness2016 so we can find each other. I’ll be posting mostly here on my site as well as my Instagram account @ChrisRobertsPilates and Christopher Roberts Wellness on YouTube. Be creative and have fun, I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
Also, stay tuned and watch my social media because I will be hosting my own “Pilates Every Damn Day” challenge once again in the month of April. More details to come on that.
