Full body Pilates workout with stretches

Full body Pilates class in standing and on the mat

This is a full length mat based class which is a good overall body workout, combining both stretching and strengthening exercises for spine.

We start by warming up our legs in standing with some heel raises and lunges. We also stretch and warm up through our spines with a side plank movement and upper body stretches. We then mobilise our spines with some roll downs before coming down onto the mat to continue the class.

Once down on the mat we begin on our backs by challenging our core control and coordination with a double leg stretch movement. We also work on our obliques today with a criss-cross movement and our lower abdominals with a scissors exercise.

Moving around onto our sides to practice our move of the month which is a side kick movement, which challenges our core control and glute muscle strength. Finishing the class in sitting with some gentle leg and upper body stretches on the mat.

PLEASE NOTE

This is class 3 of a 4 part series building on improving our side kick technique (although the class can still be enjoyed by itself)
