The Pilates Method and Concentration

“The first thing you’ll learn, doing the Pilates Method, is that the position and movement of every part of your body is interrelated and important. When you’re walking, how you place your foot both influences and is affected by the way you hold your head.

Concentrating on your whole body at once as it performs complicated movements is a formidable challenge, but it is a skill that will come to you, a step at a time, as you pursue the Pilates Method”.

An excerpt from: The Pilates Method of Physical and Mental Conditioning.

How do you narrow your focus and deepen your concentration during your Pilates sessions or any mindfulness  practices? I begin with my breath and consciously placing my focus on a specific area of my body.
