Baked Beans Bone Health & Balance

Grab some baked beans, weighted mini balls, small weights or water bottles.

0.5 - 1kg is perfect (I like 0.5kg) for this bone healthy workout.

Great whether you have bone density issues or not and one of my most popular videos.

Enjoy, stay balanced and have fun!!

Squat Happy!

Strengthen the legs and glutes with this squat combo. Challenge balance as you work through the feet and hips and if you wish and are able, the option to challenge balancethrough a quad stretch is the show stopper!

If you have knee issues this may not be the one for you and if balance is yet to be mastered then please esure you hold onto something secure.

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..

Office Workout

 

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.

Footwork

 

 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!
Enjoy!!

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.

Strong - Upper Body

 

14 minute challenging upper body sequence. Not suitable for those with an upper body injury or issues.
Hold your form throughout - ribcage connected and shoulder blades wide with the chest lifted

Flow!

50 Minute Mixed Ability Flow class taken from our May classes during lockdown.

You will need a Pilates ball or cushion for your knees and towel for your head.

Can you spot the rouge pencil and 6 (!!) edits as had a disaster making this one!!

I had to re-record the end and in doing so accidently missed out balancing in side lying on the second side!!! Please feel free to pause the video and pop it in

Going Classical -  Finding Space

Looking at finding space in the classical repertoire. You may use a Pilates inflatable ball at one point if you wish but don't worry if not. Please choose your levels wisely and ensure you feel secure before moving on to the next level. Not every exercise is for everyone so if needs be take a breather and join in the next exercise.
Enjoy and feel elongated and strong!

Balance & Stability

Balance needs to be promoted through practice to ensure we do not lose this vital life giving skill as we grow older and become more susceptible to trips and falls. Challenge your balance and stability in a fun way in this 55 minute class. It doesn't need to be pretty - just balanced!! If balance isn't your best feature then please use a high back chair (dining clair is perfect) to help you find your balance safely. You will need an inflatable Pilates ball (a mini weighted ball could be used as a substitute) to challenge your stability for a couple of exercises. Enjoy!

Footwork and Flow

A 55-minute flowing class that has a focus on the feet and using an inflatable ball.
