Just move Pilates

Class designed to get our body moving. Includes a range of exercises and movements to work throughout the body.

  • Difficulty: Easier

The class begins in standing then continues into four-point kneeling , onto our sides and onto our backs. The class is suitable for most levels but please remember to always work to a level that you feel safe and comfortable to do. 

This class includes:

  • Standing arm opening 
  • Controlled march
  • Standing ab curl
  • Leg fold and stretch 
  • Static lunge 
  • Roll downs 
  • Four-point kneeling cat stretch 
  • Leg pull in prone

The class starts with a warm up in standing. We begin with an arm opening stretch to mobilise the upper body, then combine some arm and leg movements with a controlled march and standing ab curl. Continuing into standing we work our legs a little more with a leg fold and stretch and a static lunge. We then roll down and continue the class into four-point kneeling. Working in four-point kneeling we then mobilise our spines with a cat stretch and challenge our muscle control with a leg pull in prone movement. We then move onto our elbows and work our core and glute muscles with a leg fold and stretch. 

Moving onto our sides we work on strengthening our glute muscles with a clam and single leg press. Then onto our backs on the mat we engage our abdominal muscles with a one leg stretch and abdo prep and criss-cross movements. Continuing onto our backs we challenge our core further with a bridge and dead bug exercises. We then cool down with glute and hamstring stretches and in sitting with a spine twist.
