What the challege looks like:

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.
