An Introduction to Pilates

 

Welcome to my introduction to Pilates and thank you for joining me.  Below is a complete session you can follow along with me. The first 30 minutes consist of a thorough stretching routine to warm you up and find your limits.  The second half is Pilates and depending on your level of fitness you can complete this whole session over a week or do it all in one sitting. Plus I’ve thrown in a few extra challenges for you to build up to over time.

IMPORTANT NOTE – Please remember to go at your own speed.  You don’t need to complete this session all in one go.  If you’re new to Pilates take your time to ensure you’re comfortable with each of the moves.  If this isn’t your first time and you’ve built up your confidence in movement, then I look forward to challenging you further.  Remember, work with your body, not against it. 

This is your resource to refer back and complete time and again to build your confidence.  And as I always say, have some fun and go forward being perfectly imperfect.

Need more help or support in how you move?  Check out this stretching routine that is a great daily exercise for all abilities.
