Good posture isn’t just about aesthetics – it can have a significant impact on your physical and mental well-being. Here are three quick Pilates- based exercises you can do to work on yours. Here’s a video of all three here, too!

Stable Spine .mp4

This is a great option for anyone who wants to avoid forward bending for medical or other reasons. We will keep the spine long for the entire mat, but don’t confuse that with easy. its a great challenging workout that will work your upper back and abs!

What the Wall Can Teach Us (Int)

The whole reason we do Pilates is so we can do what we love in the world! And much of that is upright! So let’s start and end of the wall and apply the wall to a strong intermediate mat class.

Arm Weight Connections (Int/Adv)

Using arm weights to strengthen the arm movements in each of the foundational and intermediate exercises. The weights are light (2lbs) but don’t underestimate their impact!

PrePilates (Very Foundational)

Sometimes your back just doesn’t feel great. Here is a short video of pre pilates exercises (the exercises you do BEFORE you do pilates). These are a great place to start learning Pilates AND to revisit when your body just isn’t feeling its best, especially if your lower back is achy. Give these a try!
