Dynamic Pilates workout

Active Pilates class designed to raise your heart rate a little whilst improving strength and mobility.

  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Length: 35 minutes

This class is focused on improving strength and fitness. Starting in standing we begin to stretch our upper body and strengthen our legs with movements such as squats and courtesy squats. Some of the movements included in the class may increase your heart rate so please only work to a level that you feel comfortable with and stop or rest with a recovery stretch as you feel you need to.

This class includes:

We start the class in standing gently warming up through the upper body with some arm openings. We then begin to increase our heart rate with some squats and combined leg lift sideways movements. Rolling down into four point kneeling we continue to challenge our core and legs with a plank and leg extensions with rainbows.

Onto our backs we challenge our abdominals further with scissors, hundreds and criss-cross movements. Onto our fronts we work our upper body with a swan dive movement and extend through the spine with a cobra stretch. We then mobilise and stretch through the spine further with a cat stretch and then lengthen through our glute muscles with a pigeon pose stretch. We then finish the class in sitting with some roll downs and side bends.

    Loved that one Vicky. Tummy muscles might let me know they’ve had a work out.
