    Default Callanetics

    It is an exercise program designed by someone named Callan. The name is a pun of the name "Callan" and the word "calisthenics".

    Calisthenics are toe touches, sit-ups, etc.
    http://dictionary.reference.com/sear...q=calisthenics

    Callanetics is *not* aerobic exercise like jogging or Jane Fonda.

    Callanetics was very big in the Eighties; there was a book and some video tapes. This was before Pilates became popular...Callanetics may be very similar to Pilates, it promises all the same results. For about 10 years all the Callanetics materials were out of print; now Amazon is offering the program on DVD.

    Hi!
    Callanetic is good for spinal column problems because of stady state load - there no jumping and fast moves -it's about keeping pose 1min (sometimes that's hard,lol)

    Da Sage and Thara, thanks for explaining, I always thought it was some sort of aerobics thing.

    Anyway, it sounds like a great way to exercise, but I guess I'm more of a Pilates person

    callanetics is not like aerobics or callisthetics,callisthetics is based alott around gymnastics.and is nothing to do with callan.
    ,callanetics,is an excercise of its own.devised by cal;lan pinckney.based on ballet/bellydancing.is a series of light movements,none aerobic that work deep and work fast.
    meditation with movement.


    the results are fast

    each to their own,this is what works for me


    hugs and smiles

    Default another hour

    well there we go,another hour!!!wooohoooooooooooo!!!

    I realy didnt feel like it after being a little ill,but once i got into it,my body naturally took over for me,all i had to do was tell it what i wanted it to do!

    thankyou God for this body.

    I was stronger than I realised,I am able to round the torso even more than i ever thought could be possible.
    many movements were as always working very deep,but i seem to handle that better and better every time.

    my belly button feels higher,my middle is pulled in even more,arms and legs,even though i am 5ft small (travel sized...lol ) they feel long and strong.

    my neck has amazing strength too,and i noticed the beautiful shape the top of my arms are taking.

    what realy helps me,is the amazing support i get from my family here at home,and you amazing people here at the boards.thankyou so very very very much.posting here helps me keep going,keeps me motivated.and i am so very greatful for that.

    will be posting before and after pictures in no time at this rate!!
    my eating habits yesterday werent so good,so back to today


    hugs and huge thankx with smiles
