Get up and go Pilates class

Short mat-based class designed to move and stretch the body to get you up and ready for the day.

  • Difficulty: Easier
  • Length: 17 minutes

The class begins with some stretches in sitting then continues down on our backs on the mat. The class is suitable for most levels but as always please remember to work to a level that you feel safe and comfortable to do.

This class includes:

  • Sitting spine twist with arm raises
  • Upper body reaches
  • Round the world stretch
  • Hip twist with opposite arm opening
  • Double leg stretch
  • Abdo prep with one leg stretch and lower
  • Bridge with arm raises
  • Rotation stretch
  • Glute and hamstring stretches
  • Sitting arm reaches, side bend and tree hugs

The class begins with some gentle upper body stretches in sitting. We then continue the class down onto our backs and work to engage our core with our arms and legs together with a hip twist and arm opening and double leg stretch movement. We then strengthen our abdominals with an abdo prep and one leg stretch and lower, before mobilising the spine further with a bridge with arm raises. We then cool down with a rotation stretch of the spine and glute and hamstring stretches on our backs. Finishing the class into sitting with arm reaches, side bend and tree hug stretches.
