Reflect and relax Pilates class Easier classes

Gentle Pilates class to help you relax

Relax and reflect with this calming Pilates class

This short class is designed to help you relax and open out through our chest and spine.

We go back to basics in this class, focusing on our breathing and expanding our ribcage.

We can often feel a lot of tension and tightness through our upper body and necks so we start by stretching these out on the mat.

We continue to mobilise our spines and engage our core with bridging and opposite arm and leg movements. Throughout the class we continue to anchor back to our breathing and relax through our upper body.

This is an easy Pilates class that can be used individually to relax and de-stress or as a way to warm down after a more intense Pilates workout or other activity. I hope you like it.
