Easier full length class

Full length Pilates workout

Simple yet testing full length Pilates class working to mobilise and strengthen throughout the body.

  • Difficulty: Easier
  • Length: 42 minutes

The class is suitable for most levels and demonstrates options for the exercises as much as possible, but please always work to a level that you feel comfortable and safe to do. The class begins in standing to warm-up then continues onto our backs and sides on the mat.

This class includes:

  • Standing spine twist
  • Balance series
  • Leg lift and toe taps
  • One leg circle in standing
  • Abdominal curl and stretch
  • Roll downs
  • Arm scissors with bridge
  • One leg circle
  • Abdo prep and combined scissors
  • Double leg stretch
  • Cycling legs
  • Side lying – combined side kick and leg lift sideways
  • Half moon
  • Arm openings
  • Opposite arm and leg stretch
  • Glute/piriformis stretch
  • Hamstring stretch
  • Sitting bow and arrow stretch, neck stretch and Y stretch

The class begins in standing mobilising through our upper backs with a spine twist. We then challenge our balance with a balance series and leg control with a leg lift and toes taps and one leg circle. We then engage our abdominals with an abdominal curl and stretch movement before mobilising the spine with some roll downs.

We then continue down onto our backs on the mat and combine some arm and leg movements with arm scissors and bridge exercise and a double leg stretch. We also work on engaging our abdominals further with a combined abdo prep and scissors movement and cycling legs. Moving onto our sides we work on our core and glute strength with a combined side kick and leg lift sideways movement and a half moon exercise. We also mobilise through our upper backs on our side with an arm opening movement.

We then cool down onto our backs on the mat with an opposite arm and leg movement, glute stretch, and hamstring stretch. We then finish the class in sitting with a bow and arrow stretch, neck stretches and ‘Y’ stretch.

    An unexpected challenge for my balance! The half moons caused a few grimaces as well, after several days of fence painting. 😊
