My Pilates Resolution

My Pilates resolution – a 365 day revolution.

The goal

To practice Pilates every single day for an entire calendar year.

The rules

  • Each session must be at least 15 mins duration
  • The weeks total sessions time must add to at least 3.5 hours (30 mins average per day)
  • At least  2 hours (>50%) must be with an instructor.*
  • I will strive to include a wide variety of pilates classes utilising varying equipment and from varying styles, schools and instructors.

The motivation

  • To practise what I preach
  • To improve my self-mastery of the Pilates method
  • To create a discipline and consistency in my Pilates practise
  • To broaden my Pilates experience through increased variety
  • To spread the Pilates message
*To make this feasible when I’m on holidays etc I am considering online classes and DVDs where the class is created for me and I am listening to cues to be with an instructor. Choosing my own exercises or using a book or manual as a guide is not considered to be with an instructor.
What do you think? Realistic? Specific enough? Worthwhile? 
I will be using the remaining 6 weeks of 2011 as preparation to increase my chances of success… time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted.
