Classes suitable for those who are newer to Pilates or if you are a more establihed client and would like a class slightly less challenging so you can focus on technique a little more.
Please ensure you have GP consent to exercise before doing these videos and follow the guidelines you have agreed to.
Standing Series Class Prep
Taken from weeks 3 and 4 in isolation this class starts standing and works you through some of our most popular moves in standing before translating them to the mat.
Abdominal Series 2
An abdominal series taken with the head down to work the deeper abdominals and gain control over the stabilisation of the pelvis and ribcage.
Basic Mat Programme
35 minutes for a full body workout. Visiting some of the most popular original Pilates repertoire including Rolling Like a Ball.
Shoulder Mobility 1
Mobilise the shoulders and open the chest with this 10 minute sequence. Suitable for most and potentially great for breast cancer survivors to increase mobility and keep the lymph moving. Not recommended if you have a shoulder injury - please consult with you GP or physio etc..
A short standing work out designed to break up your office day. Helping to mobilise, stretch and release areas that can be effected by staying in one position too long.
15 minute footwork and ankle strengthening and mobilising class.
One of the most important structural parts of the body. Vital to keep your feet strong and mobilised to help avoid injury and pain throughout the body and increase your balance. Strong feet also help to give you a better running and cycling technique and can keep you walking longer.
You will need bare feet, a wall or chair, tenis ball or small weighted ball, pencil and a piece of kitchen roll!
Bedtime Breather & Mobilise
A gentle 25 minutes of breath and movement to help calm down the nervous system and gently mobilise before bedtime or when you need to feel a little more at ease. Wear something warm (pj's and a warm jumper may be perfect!) and you you may need a towel or cushion for your head and knees and possibly a blanket to throw over yourself at the end.
Enjoy and I hope it helps you grab some zzzz's
Standing Arm Series 1
Standing arm series taken with weights. Probably not suitable if you have any shoulder issues. You will need (if you wish) 2 x tins of food/water bottles/mini weighted balls or small weights. 0.5kg is plenty for me personally as I don't want to overload the body - better to have great form throughout the body and lighter weights than loosing your control and precision.
Mini Thoracic Mobilisation & Release
Some suggestions in this tutorial to open the shoulders and chest and release the thoracic spine. Perfect after a day at work, gardening, long car journeys or just as a chill and destress.
Stretch & Flow
30 minutes of stretching and mobilising. Moving the spine in all directions and mobilising in a flowing manner.
You will need a small Pilates weighted ball or cushion, block or cushion and towel.
