Deep Core Strength
Get ready to find strength in your body that you didn't know existed! Michael's unique approach towards the classical moves you already know will return a spark to your workout while revealing more about your own body. It's crazy hard work but he moves at a slow pace to allow you to absorb his tips for customizing your workout to get just what you need. A strap to anchor your feet is essential to this lesson - if you're working out at home with a yoga mat, use the bottom of a heavy piece of furniture to help you access strength deep in your core and find an important pelvic stretch.

Absolutely delighted to see Mr Johnson back teaching and demonstrating the Mat Practice.
After following this class on my mat at home, it goes without saying, that this Gentleman has a special understanding of how these exercises work in the body, as he so clearly articulated with his personal interpretation of the mat work, and indeed as mentioned in the introduction, he is "unique" with his explanations gained over some 34 years of Teaching.
This is a treasure of the mat practice. (In my humble opinion as a Home Practitioner)
Come back soon.
Thanks Joesmat really appreciate your observations. Take care. MJ
Agree that it is great to have Micheal Johnson back on Pilatesology. His insights are appreciated....more, please!
Your ears must have been burning because I was just thinking how much I missed seeing Michael on Pilatesology. So happy when I checked in today and saw he was back and true to form. Keep it coming!
Great stuff! Challenging but enjoyable in that "Pilates enjoyable" way.
Brilliant break down of the exercises. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Fabulous! Thank you!!
What a wonderful class. Thank you Mr. Johnson. Your unique explanations are much appreciated, you helped me feel the exercises in a way I have never felt before. Thank you!!!!!!
What a super class!!!
Thank you! So great to challenge the body as an advanced teacher yet remain within the original method. I shall come back!
This was excellent cuing! Thanks a bunch! One of the many things I will take away from this class:'I don't do the advanced work so often, it is the basics that make you strong ...'
I enjoyed your class very much and appreciate your excellent explanation and cues for each exercise helping the viewer/practicioner to understand the exercise and its goal. I learned a lot today.
