Core legs backs and glutes Pilates class Pilates classes

Core, legs, backs and glutes

Full length, full body Pilates class.

In this workout we cover core, back, legs and glutes exercises.

This class is a relatively challenging class that will suit most people. Various levels of exercises are offered to cater to a variety of levels. But please work within your abilities…and don’t over do it!

This class begins with a gentle warm up in standing. We then move onto our backs on the mat to work on our core, introducing our new move of the month a one leg stretch as well.

We then move round onto our sides to challenge our glute and core muscles a little more with a side bend and side kick movement.

Finishing the class with some leg and and lower back stretches.

I hope you enjoy the class.

PLEASE NOTE – this class is part of a related series, specifically looking to work on improving the body’s lumbo-pelvic control through the one leg stretch exercise.

The class can be enjoyed by itself or as part of the series. This is class one of the series.
