As a pilates teacher, I often get asked 'Julie, I'm so busy right now, what pilates exercises can I do that are quick and easy but will still leave me feeling like I worked out?' So I created a FREE download: 5 Simple pilates exercises you can do EVERY day.
Download it by clicking the link above or here.
They give you a total body work out, helping you to build strength, move your body in a gentle and kind way and leave you feeling calmer and more energised, they are also super simple. You can do them in 5 minutes or 10 – 15 minutes if you have the time.
All 5 of the exercises included will help you build strength, improve posture and help you re-balance your body. What’s more, they are a sure fire way to help lower stress levels and will leave you feeling great.
Pilates is a form of mindful movement and is known to increase oxygen in the body, boost circulation, build strength, improve mobility, reduce stress and leave you feeling energised not depleted, after every workout. It is a gentle and kind way to care for your body and your mind and you can get all of these benefits in just a very short space of time.
When I was suffering my own chronic low back pain, 'little, often' was an approach that worked much better for me over longer periods of being in a gym or attending classes, which is why all of these exercises can be done in as little as 10 minutes as many times as you like in a day.
Let me give you a quick rundown on what you can expect from each of the exercises featured:
Spine Curls – glute strength and a release of tight hips
Oblique Curl Ups – core strength and upper-mid back mobility
Table Top – core strength, improved shoulder mobility and a more open posture
Plie Squats – glute strength, pelvic floor tone, inner thigh strength
Single Leg Stretch – core strength, improved co-ordination, better breath work, hip flexor stretch.
I’ve got a very handy How To video for single leg stretch that I’m sharing with you here.
New to pilates? I’m very glad you’re here! I wrote a blog post on Getting started with pilates which I’ve linked here for you.
You can save the download or print it off and hang it somewhere you can see it. Give them a go and leave me a note in the comments to let me know how you get on if you give them a go!
Love Julie x
