Your instructor Pauline takes you through some basics to help you understand more about why pelvic floor muscle training is so important and the anatomy of the pelvic floor - with a little help from Pedro the Skeleton!
Try this wonderful and relaxing neck and shoulder mobilisation from a full length Stretch & Balance video by Jan. Sure to help loosen tight muscles!
A short, 10-minute sequence that's a great total body workout. All low impact and inspired by modern, functional Pilates, focusing on strength, endurance, co-ordination, balance and flexibility.
A brilliant side-lying sequence for warming up and mobilising the shoulders, as well as stretching the chest pectoral muscles. This was filmed as part of Intermediate Pilates class 12, but we decided to share it on its own too as it's a really great one for everyone to try!
