Welcome to my weekly Pilates workout.
Every Wednesday I share with you a new 10 / 15 minute 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.
This simple to do standing Pilates exercise is perfect for those who are looking to improve their lower body awareness and balance. The key to this exercise is to achieve alignment between your feet, ankles, knees and hip. Creating balance between these key landmarks of your leg can help with all manner of issues from calf and hamstring strain, ACL and MCL injury, to shin splint and Achilles issues.
Let me know what you think!
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
