Head to toe Pilates workout

Full body mat based class working from our tops to our toes

This class includes both stretching and strengthening movements for lots of different areas of the body. This class includes:

  • Standing corkscrew
  • Leg lift sideways in standing
  • Squats and Lunges
  • Plank and mountain climb
  • Fire hydrants
  • Bridging
  • Hip twist
  • Sitting tricep dips
  • Neck stretches

This class uses some of our favourite Pilates moves to work through the whole body.

Warming up in standing we work and stretch our upper body with a cork screw and cleopatra movements. We also work our legs with some squats and lunges.

Rolling down into four-point kneeling to challenge our upper body and abdominals with a plank as well as our glute muscles with a fire hydrant exercise. Moving down onto our backs engaging our core with bridging and one leg stretch exercises.

Rolling up into sitting we also work on our abdominal strength with some half roll downs. In sitting we also give our arms a workout with some tricep dips.

We then roll back down onto the mat to stretch out through our legs and spine. Finishing the class with some gentle neck and spine stretches.

    The ‘fire hydrant’ move gets its name because it’s like a dog weeing on a fire hydrant, I’m guessing!
