🖱💻Shout out to Kofi @kofidosei who takes his Pilates practice seriously. He came all the way from San Francisco for Pilates Reformer class and had to drive back for work in Sf right after. He's consistent and works hard!! We know you're visiting your mom in Ghana for a month but we'll miss ya! See you in the New Year! ☀️☀️☀️💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 #pilates #nikitapilates #corestrength #strength #activesportsclubs #kofi #consistency #focus #fitness #health #lifestyle #bayarea #oakland

Pilates is so healing and beneficial for the body. So amazing for healing injuries and injury prevention! Pilates focuses on the deep stabilizers and core muscles that keep the body in proper alignment. Check out this article of this young athlete's experience with Pilates! #pilates #nikitapilates #athlete #strength #football #track #injuryprevention #alignment #bayarea #oakland #nfl #professional #focus #mindbodyconnection #strongcore #heal #comebackstronger

☀️Happy Friday!!! Did you do any stretches today? ☀️ ➡️This stretch on the Reformer is great because it opens up my hips and stretches my hamstrings!

❤ I love this variation of Skating on the Reformer! This exercise strengths the lateral leg, gluteus medius and obliques! ➡️When I move faster, I feel it more in my obliques, when I control the movement, I feel it more in my glutes of the standing leg Come try this with me! #nikitapilates #pilates #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforathletes #pilatesforeverybody #prehab #health #fitness #strongknees #glute #obliques #bayarea #oakland #pilatesreformer #strength #balance #stability

Today the dance world lost a legend. Arthur Mitchell, founded the Dance Theatre of Harlem after the passing of Dr Martin Luther King to create the space and to show the world that Black people could become Ballet dancers. Words cannot explain how much he has shaped me who I am today. If it wasn't for him I may not have been a ballet dancer at all. I am very grateful to have been able to be apart of his legacy and happy that I can continue that by teaching dancers of color and letting them know that it is possible. Rest in Peace ❤🙏🏽 #ballet #firstlove #dancerofcolor #dth #dancetheatreofharlem #nyc #mydream #give #take #show #equalopportunity #balletdancer #blackballerina

🏈Raider Runningback DeAndre Washington @dwa5hington working on balance, proprioceptors and knee stability. 🏈 ➡️Proprioceptors are sensors that provide information about joint angle, muscle length and muscle tension. These proprioceptors give information to the brain about the position to the limb in space. ➡️Balance exercises help teach your body and brain to control the position of a deficient or an injured joint. A common example of a balance exercise that can help improve proprioception is the use of a balance board or Blue Pad. #nikitapilates #pilates #balance #core #stability #healthyknee #deandrewashington #athlete #prehab #conditioning #nfl #runningback #posture #football #bayarea #oakland #nodaysoff
