Mindfulness movement Pilates

Mindful movement Pilates class

Pilates class focused on our mind and body connection, bringing an awareness of our bodies.

  • Difficulty: Easier
  • Length: 19 minutes

The class begins in sitting with some simple stretches and then continues onto our backs on the mat. Throughout the class we aim to bring attention to our breathing with each movement. The class then finishes with a mindful body scan.

This class includes: 

  • Sitting upper body reaches and mermaid stretch 
  • Breathing awareness
  • Bridging with arm raises
  • Single leg knee hugs
  • Hip twist 
  • Dead bug
  • Frog stretch 
  • Rotation stretch 
  • Mindful body scan 

The class begins in sitting with some gentle stretches to open our through our upper back and spines. We then roll back onto the mat onto our backs. We start by bringing an awareness to our breathing pattern and then gently mobilise the spine with a bridge movement and stretch our lower back and hips with a single knee hug. We challenge our core control with a hip twist movement and dead bug before stretching our spines with a rotation stretch and frog stretch. We then finish the class with a mindful body scan.

    I loved it, I had since 2018 without practicing Pilates and this class reminds me a lot of my awesome teacher who died during covid.

    Hi Vicky, I’ve been doing this class regularly to prepare for breast cancer surgery. It is very helpful. Do you have any other similarly relaxing classes online? Thank you, Gai.
