2. Create something worth sharing

It could be a photograph, a video, musings, practice tips, a drawing… any form of creative expression is welcome! Use last year’s contributions to marchmatness.com for inspiration, too!

3. Note the corresponding date(s) for each exercise

To synchronize the campaign, the numbers on the list above stand for the day of the exercise’s turn. March 15 is The Neck Pull, for example.

4. Add hashtags

To connect with everyone participating, use the corresponding hashtag AS LISTED ABOVE with each exercise. Also add #marchmatness and #MM2015 (ideal for Twitter).

5. Spread the word and practice!

Post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, YouTube, your blog, tell your friends, offer a free Mat class… Most importantly, practice!!! Simply search the hashtags to get inspired!

If you need any assistance in getting started, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I hope this year’s March MATness will be full of inspiration transcending the Pilates community – this work is too good not to be practiced by everyone, don’t you think? Together, let’s make the Pilates love go viral!
