We have another Pilates routine for you focusing on just that core and we have done it a bit different this time changing up the format so it is more like being in an actual live Pilates Mat class. Kelli will be demonstrating the motions and Daniel will be doing “live” instruction for form, breathing, and modifications. This routine can be easily done by a beginner but is still challenging for those whom have been doing Pilates for years as we include various levels of difficulty for most exercises. You can follow along exactly with what we do for a more difficult workout or you can stay with the easier versions of each exercise as we progress for a more beginner friendly workout.
