In this Pilates workout we fire up the posterior chain (glutes and back) for the first 8 minutes, followed by a plank series, then all abs and finishing with a feel-good stretch. We use a hand towel to weave mobility in each move.
Your body is in for a treat! We move through flexibility patterns using the core to stabilize the movement. For the first 10 minutes we work core & mobility in standing positions. Then we take it to the mat for advanced Pilates core work and flexibility.
Maybe you like the idea of yoga, but don't like yoga. These movement patterns are for you! We will stretch your body from head to toe. In this slow, restorative stretch, we hold stretches for longer than usual. This helps to open the tissues and joints to restore your body.
We start with rolling through the tissues, then move into longer restorative stretches. Equipment needed: tennis ball, neck tie or hand towel. If you have rolled before you can use a lacrosse ball in place of the tennis ball.
