I chose this name to show my commitment to flow ( the uninterrupted quality of movement). This quality of movement is outward proof of a body which is efficient at moving. Efficiency comes from precision: The ability to engage the correct muscles and to maintain alignment.
Getting from position A to position B is of minimal importance to Pilates. How you get from one to the other is what matters most. Speed is usually the enemy of precision and control and a way to mask a lack of both. By using momentum, muscles are not allowed to develop strength.
Remember what you are trying to achieve: Mastery of your body which will results in efficient movement and optimal posture. Slow it down and engage with the movement. Introspect, observe and connect with your own body. Feel your muscles, be aware of your alignment and focus on your breathing.
