This post is dedicated to all the people who have attempted the Pilates Teaser and:
1. Found it to be one of the more challenging Pilates exercises and see it as something to work towards
2. Have worked on this exercise consistently and seen their strength and technique really improve
3. Feel they have mastered the Teaser. They find it challenging but feel that with their technique and strength it is definitely do-able
Whichever one of these camps you’re in, there’s a pretty good chance that you think of the Teaser as just another exercise – something you attempt, maybe succeed at and move on with your routine. I have to admit that I used to think of the Teaser in just the same way: as a wonderfully challenging exercise that would make my muscles quiver but nothing more than that. It never occurred to me to explore what this exercise had to offer beyond the physical.
I promise that after reading Jennifer Kries’s uplifting post about her “moment” with the Teaser, you will never feel the same way about this exercise again. I have definitely found that the Teaser has taken on a whole new meaning for me. Jennifer’s article will help you perform the exercise with a greater sense of awareness and unity of mind and body by drawing inspiration from her journey.
Just a quick note to let you know that it’s a long, beautifully written post so I’d suggest picking a time to read it when you can sit down with a cup of tea and appreciate it properly!
