    Id love to come along to a class as well - but just dont have the time to travell the few hundred kms :p

    I bought myself a Pilates DVD the other week - and a mat, and a ball, and a giant hair lacky thing :p I started last night - and wow!

    During it, it was damm hard to focus on what to do, and it exposed some serious weekness (serioustly soft core section - lol) But It felt fairly passive.
    After doing It however, it felt like I had been stretched from top to toe, I am very impressed.

    And I really enjoyed spending the time just doing it for myself :)

    I then finished up with a Yoga session..... and had the best sleep I have had in weeks **)

    I highly reccomend it - or whatever stretching strengthening you can do.....It felt really good :)

    I do a Pilates class at work, and it always makes me super-sleepy for the rest of the day.

    How many riders would be interested in rider stretch classes? (not fitness as such- though both together help LOL) To help deal with suppleness and pain issues?
