I was traveling last week and only got in one session of 10/10. Need to get back on the horse this week! I've noticed that if I am not doing my Callanetics regularly my back pain starts to come back. It definitely has been a miracle cure for me. I must have similar issues to what Callan had. When she says to curl up even more than you think you can it really releases my back. For some reason the newer videos don't help as much with my back. I guess we are all different

Oops! Well, at least you know Callanetics is there for the rescue!

It's my opinion that Callan says subtle little things, or has an approach to Callanetics that none of the other instructors have, because she had to heal herself to such a large degree. She has that clear understanding beyond the fitness level of what Callanetics is doing for the body. Yes, it's marketed as a strengthening/thinning exercise, but it's so much more! It has helped me with so many health issues, along with helping work through emotional times, I've lost count.

Yep, I get it! Can't explain it in words but I "see" what you are saying. I have been doing many of the newer workouts but I think I will go back to the basics. I heard something new in 10/10 last week but can't remember what it was now. Whatever it was it was mind blowing and changed what I was doing. I know that sounds weird but there is something unexplainable going on here

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! And I was like, "Yep."

No need to explain.

Happy Pulsing!

Finally was brave enough to do all 3-20 minute Quick Callanetics to equal one hour. I bought a used fluidity bar to use for the barre exercises because I wasn't comfortusing my furniture.

Sounds like you're doing great Bronwyn! Good for you!

I wasn't feeling well this week, so took a small break. Will be up and at it again this weekend!

Thanks Bronwyn! Just about! I just had a late night, before bed, session, and it felt so right!

So glad you're feeling better. Hour four in the books. I think my sleep has improved a bit as a result.

One session in the great outdoors! Loved it!

Hour 6 last night. I guess it's technically an hour since I'm doing 3 -20 minute quick Callanetics sessions. I'm considering switching to the full original video next month but don't want to get discouraged if I can't complete it.

You'll get to a point where your expectations of yourself are not in comparison to anyone else, and that is the most freeing experience ever!

If you decide to go for the full 10/10, I'd suggest just pulsing until you feel even the slightest amount of burn or strain, then move onto the next exercise. Truly, it doesn't matter if you can't do it all, but what I find people do is push themselves in the first few exercises and then burn themselves out, instead of doing a bit of each exercise the best of their ability.

Remember, Callanetics is about quality, not quantity!

Thank you for such a great explanation. I think that's a good idea, doing some of everything and build my endurance. I am feeling more confident with every session, which is to me the whole premise of exercising, in addition to my health. I really appreciate your advice!
