Everyone is finding the pandemic situation difficult and it can be hard to know what to think and how to feel, but if there’s one way to keep yourself occupied and your mind and body in good working order, it’s getting some exercise.
The endorphins you get from physical exercise can really boost your mood, which we certainly all need from time to time – but especially at the moment.
So what about trying something new and different to keep you on your toes over the coming weeks and months, something like live online pilates classes.
Pilates is a muscle-building exercise that aims to strengthen your body evenly, with emphasis on core strength and since many of the exercises can be done on a mat, with no equipment, it’s the perfect choice of workout for anyone at home at the moment… and especially complete beginners who have never tried it before.
It’s also suitable for people of all ages and all fitness levels, so there’s no need to worry on that score either… you’re sure to be able to do pilates in some form or other, reaping the benefits along the way.
And what exactly are the benefits of pilates? You may well find after a time that your posture improves as a result of all the exercises, as well as improvements in your muscle tone, balance and joint mobility. You may also find that any feelings of stress or tension you may be experiencing at the moment are reduced, as well.
