THE FOCUS ON THE RIDER’S BODY CONTINUES WITH ‘PILATES WITH SARAH PAYNE… FEEL THE DIFFERENCE’ – THE POWER OF THE FOAM ROLLER
So after a busy day at work, you finally get home and just want to do nothing! Does this sound familiar?

Your body is probably telling you that you should do something to relieve those aches and pains after a hectic day but your energy levels are telling you that your batteries are running low. So what do you do, reach for a glass of wine or spend a bit of time working on your body because you know you should?

Help is at hand that takes a minimum of effort but offers maximum benefit: The foam roller.

A favourite release for many clients I have worked with is to simply lie down on the foam roller and feel your shoulders wrap around the roller and your chest open. Just lie there, keeping your knees bent, remaining in a neutral position and let the foam roller get to work. Take nice deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. Suddenly the stresses and strains of the day will be miles away from you and your body will be thanking you!

If you want to be a bit more active on the roller there are many Pilates exercises that you can do. From simple pelvic tilts, to arm pullovers, shoulder drops, chest openings, foot hovers and knee lifts to name but a few. This takes considerably more effort than the previous exercise because you are moving on an unstable base, the roller, so you will need to focus your attention on maintaining your core connection. Always introduce anything new gradually – little and often is best – and listen to your body at all times. If you have any specific back conditions, always check with your GP before starting a new routine, such as working with a foam roller.

Next month we will look at how you can work with the foam roller to release tension in the body, don’t miss it!
