pelvic stability Pilates class Easier classes

Four point kneeling pelvic stability Pilates class

Short class working to improve lumbo-pelvic control

Based on the mat in a four-point kneeling position, this is a great short class to work on your lumbo-pelvic control.

Kneeling alternatives

If you are not fan on kneeling then you can try placing a small foam pad (i.e one inch) or something similar under your knees to soften the surface and reduce some of the pressure.

Reducing pressure on your wrists

Also, if you find it difficult on your wrists you can either try with your hands in a fist position or you can come down onto your elbows to do the movements with your legs.

Class exercises

We start by gently mobilising the spine with a cat stretch movement. We the challenge our core and pelvic control with some great exercises in four point kneeling. Finishing the class with some gentle stretches.

Reflect and relax Pilates class Easier classes

Gentle Pilates class to help you relax

Relax and reflect with this calming Pilates class

This short class is designed to help you relax and open out through our chest and spine.

We go back to basics in this class, focusing on our breathing and expanding our ribcage.

We can often feel a lot of tension and tightness through our upper body and necks so we start by stretching these out on the mat.

We continue to mobilise our spines and engage our core with bridging and opposite arm and leg movements. Throughout the class we continue to anchor back to our breathing and relax through our upper body.

This is an easy Pilates class that can be used individually to relax and de-stress or as a way to warm down after a more intense Pilates workout or other activity. I hope you like it.
