In the month of August, I am going to be uploading a new Pilates workout video each week on my youtube channel, kicking off this week with Pilates Perfect Arms. I am going to target four of the main areas I get asked to tone which is arms, butt, abs and inner thighs. As August is looking to be a scorcher there’s no better way to feel even more fabulous in your summer outfits then with some extra Pilates each week.
Sitting for 12 hours a day then doing a 20 minute run just isn’t enough to achieve a healthy functional body until old age! As much as I love that Pilates will get you a lean toned physique and perky bum, it’s also the most functional form of exercise. Functional exercise means training the body for exercises performed in every day life. Now what do most of us do all day in every day life? Sit at a desk, drive, get stressed, run, stand squished on a tube? We don’t tend to love our bodies or take care of them.
On Sunday, I held my third The Body event. 20 beautiful babes joined me at the cool urban space SIX3NINE in Covent Garden for a morning of Pilates, yummy food and chatting. I was grateful for the rainy morning as there’s nowhere I’d rather be on a gloomy Sunday morning then doing Pilates and my guests clearly felt the same as they arrived mats in hand ready to get moving!
Are you ready for a fun 5 minutes of body sculpting? My new routine tones and sculpts your booty, arms, shoulders, back and abs! I love all these moves so much. Follow along, clear some space and feel the burn. Don’t forget my YouTube Pilates videos are also designed to be added together so you can pick and choose to create your perfect Pilates workout.
As a young gymnast, teenage ballet dancer and now yogi/Pilates instructor, being flexible has always been part of my life and I can’t imagine what my body would feel like if I couldn’t touch my toes or do a bridge. But what if you didn’t go to ballet school or you can’t do yoga every day yet you want to get flexible, why should you get flexible and how can it change your life?
