Pilates Workouts and Classes
Total body workout. We start off with a powerfull warm-up mixed with some loosening exercises for the shoulders, back and chest. Then we move on to a lunge and balance serie before we hit the abs! Nice ab workout starts at 5 min. Also a lot of back exercises towards the end and of course some relaxations in between.
Pilates workout for the abs and legs.This is a ground workout. We start with a shoulderbridge for warm-up and move on to a workout for the abs and legs. Mainly the inside and front of the upper legs are targetted. This is all done with a stable pelvis, so it’s a great workout for pelvic stability as well. The abs get a heavy workout here! Lower abs, the waist and the “sixpack” are definitely trained after this 21 min session.
Pilates class. After a warm-up we do some squat variations and a slow and precise balance exercise. If you want to flow and move, this balance part might not be for you. After a couple of lunges we do classic Pilates groundwork exercises for abs, back and well, the whole body! Great serie there. And of course we loosen and relax the body.
Total body workout. Certainly some more unorthodox Pilates exercises here! Great if you’re looking for some variaton. The whole body get’s trained in many different ways. Very challenging balance exercise at 6 min. Fun to do. Some good focus on upper back strength at the end as well. Not an easy workout!
Pilates class. Extensive loosening-warm-up. A lot of turning with the arms in the beginning. Great for loosening the whole back as well. Then we move on to a precise squat and from there we go into classic groundwork-mode, great for core- and pelvic stability. The whole body get’s trained in a relaxed, slow and precise manner.
This is a Pilates class for lower back pain or for lower back pain prevention. We take it very easy and focus on minimal movements. It helps to loosen the lower back area and thereby reduces lower back tension and lower back pain. We also do very light exercises to strengthen the abdominals and the lower back muscles. This is a great class if you have too much tension in the muscles. Don’t do this class if you have a (lower back) injury.
This is a lengthy Pilates workout. We start off with a lovely intensive warm-up and in one flow we move to spine extensions and forward bends in Pilates style. Great for lengthening the spine! The shoulders get some well deserved attention too. After a couple of leg-stretches we move on to a nice exercise serie for the back and abs. Great workout, the whole body is trained! Nice flow.
Total body workout. A relaxed warm-up for loosening the joints, some dynamic balance exercises and spine rolls, and bit of dynamic Pilates-Yoga for chest- and shoulderopening mixed in as well. A short squat and then we move on to push-ups, back exercises and light weight ab exercises. A bit of relaxation at the end.
