Today we are working those arms, aim for 3 circuits of this workout and feel those arms burn. Pilates is amazing for toning your arms and creating all over body tone. If you don’t have a theraband which I use for the first couple of exercises then you can use light hand weights, cans of beans or no equipment at all works fab too! Don’t forget to have fun and join me for Pilates and brunch on Sunday 7th August, more details below…
Pilates is one of my favourite things in the world. I am so passionate about it’s benefits and think it’s wonderful that literally anyone and everyone can do it. It’s one of the only forms of exercises that is truly healthy for your body and mind and you can do it forever.
Last Saturday I taught my Mat Moves Pilates class at the Lululemon showroom in Covent Garden. My Mat Moves class is a whole body conditioning class and incorporates Pilates exercises with traditional ballet barre exercises transferred to the mat. The class works deep intrinsic muscles that you never knew existed and aims to improve flexibility, posture and core stability to give you that long lean sculpted physique!
I was so excited to teach at the store as I love Lululemon’s activewear (I own 4 pairs of there leggings already- they are the best!) I was really looking forward to becoming part of Lululemon community especially as they are soon to be opening a new permanent store on the famous Long Arce.
My first experience with yoga was Bikram yoga and I can definitely say it wasn’t love at first pose. The room was way to cramped, the stifling heat and repetitive poses weren’t for me. I know that a lot of people are hooked on Bikram but I needed to continue my search to find love.
I left my yoga practice for a while as I fell more in love with Pilates and my teaching training however after qualifying as a Pilates instructor and teaching/doing hundreds of classes I felt I needed to move my body in a different way and take a class where I wasn’t in ‘teacher mode’. This is when an amazon deal for 10 yoga sessions at Yotopia Yoga in Covent Garden came up and I thought perfecto lets get going again!
