If you're looking for definition, you are in the right place. Blossom Leilani Crawford leads this class with the kind of detailed precision that you'll feel for days! Your muscles will be more defined and perhaps more importantly, you'll get a complete understanding of what you're supposed to be working and why. This is a great class for early mornings or anytime you need to remember where your abs are. Enjoy! Visit Blossom at her studio Bridge Pilates.

    You kinda make it all happen Alisa, so thank you! And Blossom, your “Pistol Squats” are a t-shirt waiting to happen…

    After taking Blossom’s amazing IG live class this Saturday (9.12.20) I got really inspired by the pistol squats and the laterals and decided to pay a tribute to Kathy Grant at Catskills Pilates. I so appreciate a breath of fresh air when it comes to teaching and creativity….Thank you, thank you. Everyone loved the class, and more importantly had fun with it. During Covid times everyone needs a good story and a song, and Kathy had it all.

      I couldn’t agree more Myriam! That IG Live class was so much fun and I was thinking we should all be trying to do pistol squats in mat class–thanks KSG and Blossom!!

    ABsoulutey awesome! Love being the student. Thank you for the variations. Doing one on one really has made me realize my teaching a class needs more work.

    Hi -just wondering what the purpose of putting the block under Stephanie is when doing shoulder bridge?

    • Alisa Wyatt

      Hi sis1018,
      i think your note was meant for a different class, it ended up on a mat with Blossom demonstrating alone. Let me know which one you were referring to and I can let you know what the block was for! Alisa

    I pushed myself to do this… I kept saying I’ll do it later on today, but it was oh so worth it!!

  17. Alisa Wyatt

    I just realized I forgot to leave a comment this morning – this class was such a fun start to my day! The perfect blend of stretchy, creative and workout. I have done it many times already but had forgotten all the little extras and they really make it feel so good and like I know I’ll make it to the end even though I’m really wanting my breakfast. And now a burger 😋. Thanks Blossom xo

    This was a wonderful innovative Mat practice.
    First time I have come across the Hybrid version of your Side Bend & Twist.
    Nice hip opener. Clever stuff.
    Share the mystery about the “Burgers” ! Love a delicious really good Burger.
    Must be a nearby Eatery!
    Always, Blossom has a delightful smile mixed with humour,
    and looking very fit.
