Simple core control

Mat based class designed to gently engage and strengthen our deep abdominal core and pelvic floor muscles.

  • Difficulty: Easier
  • Length: 34 minutes

Gently engage your core with this flowing Pilates workout. This class includes:

  • Upper body stretches in sitting
  • One leg stretch
  • Bridging with arm raises
  • Hip twist
  • Four-point kneeling cat stretch
  • Leg pull in prone
  • Swimming
  • Side kick
  • Arm openings
  • Glute and hamstring stretches
  • Y stretches and mermaid stretches in sitting

The class begins with some gentle stretches in sitting to warm up through our upper body. Moving down onto our backs we begin to engage and strengthen through our core and pelvic floor muscles with a one leg stretch and bridging movements.

Moving into four-point kneeling we mobilise our spines with a cat stretch movement then work our core and abdominal muscles with a leg pull in prone exercise. We then challenge our muscle control further with a swimming exercise. Moving down onto our sides we work our glutes and core control with a side kick movement then stretch our spines and open our chests with an arm opening stretch.

We then cool down with some gentle spine and leg stretches on our backs and in sitting.
