Abdominal strength and endurance Pilates class

Pilates abs workout

In this class we work on developing the strength and endurance of our abdominal muscles.

Options for different levels of exercises are given throughout the class so please do go to what you are comfortable with.

We start the class in sitting to warm up and gently mobilise our spines.

Moving onto our backs, engaging our core muscles, we then challenge our abdominal muscles with a one leg stretch exercise. This routine is then followed by waking up our obliques with criss-cross and side bend exercises, before moving on to the Pilates hundreds exercise.

The class then finishes in a sitting position with some gentle stretches.

    I am new to this and really really enjoyed my first session with you. I kept forgetting I was watching a video and felt very much like a live session. Really well done! I am looking certainly going to try doing more sessions! Thank you for the amazing lesson.

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! Ever since I learnt pilates at a gym in Florida from an amazing instructor I have tried to find a good teacher everywhere I go, including Australia, NZ, London, all around the U.S. but I am so often disappointed. This is my first class with you, but I’ve finally found a teacher I’m happy with, thank you!! Will attempt a class a day. Dont know how you are able to offer this for free, but I couldnt be happier about it. You have improved my 2021 already.

    An excellent short class! I add in the occasional long stretch on the floor, “making oneself as long as possible”.
