bum and thigh pilates workout Half hour Pilates classes

Bum and thigh Pilates workout

This class gives our bottom and thigh muscles a real workout

This is a great class if you are looking to strengthen around your glute muscles and challenge your hip control.

Strengthening your glute muscles helps to support and control the movement around your hip joint as well as acting as key stabilisers around the pelvis.

This class is a 25 minute mat based class working primarily in four-point kneeling and on our sides.

In four-point kneeling we challenge our glute muscles as well as our limbo-pelvic control with exercises including a one leg circle.

On our sides we work our legs and glutes a little more with a clam and side kick movements.

We finish the class with some gentle leg stretches.

Enjoy this class that adds resistance to some of our favourite movements

This class adds a resistance band to some of the Pilates moves we know well. Using the band adds resistance to the movements. But if you don’t have one you can still enjoy the class and do these movements without it.

We then move round onto our sides and challenge our hip control and glute muscle strength further. Finishing the class with some gentle stretches.
