Ahhh, our favorite time of year is finally here again!
What is March MATness?
Originally created by Benjamin Degenhardt, every March we pay homage to the foundational work via sharing our versions (and love!) for the original 34 on social media. My favorite part of March MATness is it's lack of competitive spirit - yes lack of! There's no competition for "Best Pilates Exercise". Instead we celebrate everyones journey through the 34 and relish in the fact that each day, month and year maybe we get a little better. Our leg gets a little straighter, we roll up a little smoother, and hold the legs a little higher.
"What is unique about the campaign is that for one month, the community pays respect to the traditional Mat exercises as documented by Joseph Pilates in his book Return to Life through Contrology. It’s an artful practice of 34 bodyweight movements that are invigorating and effective in conditioning the body."
