*Twisted Pilates - During this session we are focusing on the muscles around our waist! Of course we all know about the obliques, ”side abs”, the muscles we use to bend the torso to one side or to rotate the upper body.

**BAHOOKIE (pronounced bəˈhʊki)  (noun) Scottish informal - A person's buttocks. Origin: 1930's - probably a blend of behind and hough, t-ie.
