A vibrant play by Mikhailovsky Ballet “Flames of Paris” in NYC

            A highly recommended performance is playing this weekend in New York -“Flames of Paris”  by Russian Mikhailovsky Ballet Theater – a vibrant,  dramatic play which take place back in 1792 during the French Revolution. I had never performed in this historical ballet, that it why I am always very excited to see “Flames of Paris” because for me there are not so many ballet plays which you can go and really enjoy watching without comparing different choreographies and  their performances or having a nostalgic moment when you remember yourself doing this part.  Moreover, I really appreciate the work of  Mikhailovsky Ballet. – the largest private ballet theater in Russia.

Pilates Is My Favorite Workout

           Pilates is a body-toning system that improves flexibility, core strength, circulatory function, muscle control and coordination. Moreover, Pilates is my favorite workout.

My pilates is a set of stretching routines aimed at healing from injuries, burning calories, and sculpting long lean muscles through a combination of barre workout and mat pilates. This class lasts 60 minute and mixes the most effective exercises for everyone’s need. It gives you dynamic exercises accompanied by classical music. You can target and access each muscle group to shape your legs, flatten your abs, firm your upper body and so on. You’ll shape your muscles while improving posture and balance, because in my classes stretching immediately follows each exercise in order to relax you muscles and develop a posture.

Joseph Pilates created the method in the 1920s, and today pilates programs are available in any fitness centers and very popular among business people, performing artists, doctors, athletes and other busy people.
