Full length Pilates mat class
Tough full length class for an all over workout
In this class we will stretch our spines and strengthening our glutes, core and abdominal muscles. This is a mat based class so no equipment is needed (except for perhaps a mat 🙂 ).
This class begins in a standing position before moving to mat-based exercises on the floor.
There are lots of different options for the exercises shown so always work to a level that suits you – we want you get the most out of the class and importantly enjoy it.
Starting the class in standing we begin by gently stretching through our upper spines, we then challenge our balance in standing with some single leg movements and a balance series.
On our backs on the mat we then start by warming up our hips with a hip twist movement and challenge our core with a bridging movement. We also bring in our upper abdominal and oblique muscles with a criss-cross movement.
Working into four-point kneeling adds some upper body stability challenge to today’s class too with movements such a superman and hip pulses.
Moving onto our sides we then continue to challenge our glute and core muscles further with clam and double leg lift movements. We then finish the class on the mat with some gentle leg stretches on our backs and upper body stretches in sitting.
