A four-week Pilates and Yin Yoga challenge, to improve your range of motion, core strength, flexibility, resilience and focus.
Thank you for joining me here. I’m Ana and I am a qualified Yoga and Pilates teacher. My mission is to help you live pain-free and stress-free in this unique and fascinating home that you have: your BODY.
The challenge starts on Monday 1st of February nd runs until Sunday 28th.
Each week you will join 3 Pilates classes, 2 Yin Yoga classes and (optional)2 express, dynamic workouts. These classes will challenge you physically and mentally, but will also leave you feeling stronger, more flexible and more relaxed.
Your investment for the four weeks is just €69 ~(you get more than 22 classes, so it will cost you less than a cup of coffee per class)
Here is what we’ll explore:
WEEK 1 Get to know your body
In this first week we practice Level 1 Mat Pilates. We’ll moving slowly , focussing on stability and range of motion. We’ll learn about the core, about posture, about flexibility and why it’s important. We’ll explore Yin Yoga and it’s benefits while enjoying a full-body relaxing practice.
WEEK 2 Happy Hamstrings & Hips
In weeek two we’re increasing the intensity in Pilates, introducing legs and hips exercises. Our Yin practice will feel intense but will help us remove stored stress and frustrations while learning about resilience. Not to worry, I will offer plenty of options for all levels and body types.
WEEK 3 Shoulder Mobility
If you are sitting at your desk, if you are driving or if you are stressed, you will notice some tension and pain in the shoulders. In week three we will work on shoulder mobility exercises in Pilates, a chest opening sequence in Yin and I will also equip you with stretches and tips you can do during your day to reduce or remove your shoulder/ neck pain.
WEEK 4: Spine Health
Joseph Pilates once said: “If your spine is stiff at 30, you are old. If it is flexible at 60, you are young.” In this final week we will once more switch on the intensity in Pilates while focussing on the spine. We will connect the dots between everything we have done in the previous weeks, to ensure you have the tools to move forward in your practice.
