Do you find yourself using the same cues all the time, but can’t find the time to research new ones? We totally get it!
Unfortunately, especially in Pilates, over-cueing is a common practice. We get bombarded with information that we can't absorb, let alone implement.
Luckily, good cueing is a skill that can be learned.
Imagery cues are the most effective tool of cueing to help you perform a movement more efficiently, with more ease and precision.
Anatomical cueing can be misinterpreted. Most of us don't have a good sense of where our hip joints are or how our shoulder blades move.
Instead, focusing on a metaphor and imagining something familiar such as a waterfall flowing down your back, elicits naturally functional movement without strain or excess tension. They allow us to stop interfering with our body's innate wisdom.
Metaphors are easier to understand at any age and ability level. They help us let go of micromanaging our muscles and gives the body a chance to find new ways to move through the power of our brain. Brain-body connection at its best.
