Pilates for paddlers?

Tuesday is power yoga- and pilates-day in my weekly fitness routine. Our trainer isn't the Californian sunset-beach-girl Peggy of the video, but Maria is no less convinced and just as persistent. I really enjoy her workouts: it's all about core-stability, flexibility and balance: very essential for paddling. It facilitates holding an active paddling position and improves control and feeling for the boat. Pilates and Yoga make a better paddler. And it's just great fun to do these exercises. A welcome break of the day!
