Pilates at home

One of the best aspects of the Pilates method is its portability. You don’t even have to be doing a Pilates workout to move in a ‘Pilates way’. Although the best results are generally gained from working in a studio under the watchful eye of a trained and experienced teacher, home-based workouts are a wonderful adjunct to studio sessions. They help reiterate the subject matter learnt in class and, if done regularly, provide the perfect combination of movements to iron out many of the kinks that modern living creates.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick’s leadership revolution

The success of the Richmond Football Club this year has been put down to many things, including a radical change of attitude. Driven by coach Damien Hardwick’s new approach to leadership, it was ‘underlined by self-awareness and self-acceptance of their faults.’ The initiative, outlined in this article in The Age, offers some visionary leadership strategies applicable to a wide range of situations.

They key to team success for the Tigers was creating a sense of ‘on-field closeness and style of communication’ that fostered trust and belief in players with a range of different personalities. Over the course of the 2017 season, Richmond players were each required ‘to reveal themselves and some form of vulnerability or shortcoming or fear in a spoken delivery over about five minutes to their teammates.’ This helped transform them into a high-functioning team.

Pilates for lower back pain

Lower back pain has become so common these days, that often it is not even diagnosed. The primary cause is poor standing – but more commonly sitting – posture. Prolonged periods spent seated in front of a computer, as well as slouching forward, have become normal. It is also very common to have a dominant side of the body – a side that we naturally use more than the other. This can lead to a strength or tension imbalance between the left or right sides, another big cause of lower back pain.

Pilates may help to correct these sorts of problems.

Dry needling for headaches

Many factors in our day-to-day lives cause tension in the body. Whether it’s poor posture from slouching, carrying a heavy bag on your shoulder or sitting for long periods in a car or at an incorrectly set-up desk.

Headaches can often result from this tension, due to the tightness of muscles in the shoulders, neck and base of your skull. Within tight muscles, we find knots, often referred to as trigger points. Trigger points are ball-like areas of tightness found within tight muscles that can refer pain into your head, causing what we then experience as a headache.

Dry needling is a fantastic technique that may help reduce headache pain and also improve range of movement inhibited by tight muscles.
