Welcome to my weekly Pilates workout.
Every Wednesday I share with you a new 10 / 15 minute Pilates workout you can do from home. These workouts are mainly mat based so require no equipment and can easily be done from home or your office. Most of these workouts are suitable for all abilities, where I add in layers of progression I will use level 1 as the easiest and then the levels get progressively harder. Please always work at the level suitable for you.
The one leg circle is a brilliant exercise for your hips. As well as hip mobility it stretches and strengthens the quads, hamstrings and core. Like most Pilates moves, this exercise combines stretching and strengthening of major muscle groups on both sides of the body and promotes balance and improved overall function in your hips.
Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Pilates is a form of exercise which concentrates on strengthening the body with an emphasis on core strength. This helps to improve general fitness and overall well-being. My Pilates classes focus around the seven key principles of Pilates, Breathing, Alignment, Stamina, Relaxation, Centering, Concentration and Flow.
Pilates focuses on the mind-body connection which we find through using the breath. While doing the various exercises your mind needs to be constantly aware of your breathing and the way your body moves.Favorite
