Join the movement

Ready to join the movement? Fantastic! March is a particularly great month to embark on a Pilates Mat practice because the entire Pilates community is helping you get inspired and educated. Perhaps even pick up a copy of Return to Life through Contrology, the original Pilates book by the method’s founding father himself!

First, roll out your Mat. Then follow these simple steps:

1. Pick an exercise from the list

You can pick as many exercises as you like… why not all 34?

2. Create something worth sharing

It could be a photograph, a video, musings, practice tips, a drawing… any form of creative expression is welcome but remember: it’s not a challenge, and it’s not a contest… it’s a celebration!

3. Note the date(s) for each exercise

To synchronize the campaign, the number on the list above corresponds with the day of the exercise’s turn; March 15 is The Neck Pull, for example.

4. Add hashtags

To connect with everyone participating, use the corresponding hashtag as listed above with each exercise. HINT: add #marchmatness2017 and your public social media post will appear in the live feed on this website!

5. Spread the word!

Post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, YouTube, your blog, tell your friends, offer a free Mat class… Be ready for a whole new audience to find you as they will be searching for the hashtag of the day!

6. Practice!

Simply search the hashtags to get inspired and fall in love with your daily movement practice! Feel free to use these logos for your social media posts!
