Don’t look at this as a workout but a part of your morning routine. It can look something like this… brush teeth… drink coffee//my go-to →Advocare Spark//or whatever makes you nice to people … TYE4 … shower … This is a PERFECT way to start your day… stretched, moving and the proper posture muscles activated. AND BONUS:: you DO get a workout!!! This tones the back, abs, arms AND legs! #WIN
I love this new TYE4®! Here are a few clips of me playing around in it as I design a new class sequence. TYE4 allows us to stretch deeper, push further and really challenge the stabilizing muscles. I love it!

As you know, I’m kinda obsessed with the NEW TYE4® wearable system from TheMethod Pilates. It is amazing for spine, hip & shoulder mobility, strengthening stabilizers, improving balance & coordination, and building overall strength and tone. It can be used while doing lots and lots of different types of exercise.
Today I’m talking about TYE4 and FEET!
SOCKS and SHOES
SOCK FEET… While practicing Pilates, for example, you will want to kick off your shoes. Choose a non-slip sock like ToeSox or something similar. Tye4 should NOT be done barefooted for a few reasons. During certain movements, the foot strap will slip and distract from the movement. It can also irritate the foot, so find a cute pair of sock and wear them proud!
It is such an honor to be on thePhysicalMind Institute website showing Tye4®. This is the original and leading Pilates Certifying Institution. The latest from the Institution is Standing Pilates, Circular Pilates, Tye4®, HeadFloater™ and 80Bites – a weight loss program that is comparable with the Pilates principles: less is more.

“If Joseph Pilates were alive today, he would applaud the innovation we have brought to his original exercises. As he created the original movements as a response to the needs of a population almost a century ago, we at the Institute have developed a coherent, no nonsense program for addressing the needs of the 21st century client.” TheMethod Pilates

I’m excited today because FitmarkBags.com just published my TYE4® Review post! Come over and read it. After, you will understand how Tye4 will enhance your workout and how I am using it in my TYE4 Fusion Class and the TYE4 Pilates Class.
In this video I am doing a Pilates sequence using the TYE4® in a
LEG BUNGEE FRONT CROSS (LBFC) position.
Basically, you will put the right foot strap on the LEFT foot
and the LEFT foot strap on the RIGHT foot.
The bungees will cross in the front near your core.
I do not use the arm bungees in this sequence, so I have tied them around my waist to get them out of the way.
Using TYE4 while doing Pilates is like doing Reformer Pilates. The bungees are the springs. That’s pretty fantastic. If you have a TYE4, I hope you will try this! For more TYE4 info, check out TheMethodPilates.com
Strange thing: The past 2 weeks, I have had a number of you ask what you need to do to tone your inner thighs. Funny that this seems to be a theme in my life right now, so I thought I’d help you out and give you some exercises that WILL TONE UP those thighs! In this video, I am using a Tye4@ which I find to be so much more effective than doing the same exercises with body weight alone. Take a look…
