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.
Think of your body like a tree, your core is the trunk of the tree and your limbs are the branches. When you bend to pick things up, swing a tennis racket, run, jump or swim your core bares the majority of the force, like the tree trunk, also like the tree trunk which supports the branches your core does the same for your arms and legs, so a strong core = a stronger more able body.
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
