Pilates Notes

A Mat Class with Roller

This is a Pilates Mat class I taught for my work colleagues – nothing too difficult or unfamiliar, but enough to get your sweat on.

Hey friends – while you’re hunkering down for shelter-in-place, you can still keep your fitness going with Pilates mat! This is a 40 minute class I taught for my work colleagues. I’d call it an advanced beginner class; nothing too difficult or unfamiliar, but enough to get your sweat on.

The session uses foam roller to add interest to a number of the exercises, but you could still do the class without a roller if you don’t have one.

As always, use discretion when following a virtual fitness session. Don’t do exercises you’re unfamiliar with, don’t do anything that hurts, and follow the advice of your medical provider.

Here are the exercises in the sequence:

  • Standing Stretches and Squats
  • Hamstring 1 and 2 with the Roller
  • Bridging
  • Chest Lift Regular and Oblique
  • Roll Down/Roll Up
  • Swan
  • Swimming
  • Rolling Like a Ball
  • Side-Lying Leg series (lift, kick, circles)
  • Plank with Roller
  • Kneeling Bridge/Lunge/Standing

If you’re looking for more personalized attention, I’m available for private virtual sessions.
