In this free online course, you will discover the amazing benefits of Pilates, a physical fitness system created by Joseph Pilates. Even though it was developed in the early 20th century, the benefits on physical and mental health remain the same. More and more people are using these methods to improve their core strength, flexibility, posture and mood. This 7-day challenge will show you how ‘addictive’ Pilates can be, and how you can shape your body and have fun at the same time in just 15 minutes a day. In the first module, we will cover the nine principles that were formed as this fitness system gained momentum in the last century. Breathing, concentration, control and centering are just some of them, as well as rhythm and flow, which create smooth, graceful and functional movements.
In the next module, the first four days of this 7-day pilates challenge are covered. In the first video, you will do roll down, single leg circles, spine stretch, and side-bend exercises. Sounds good? If so, you will love the second day, where you will do routines called ‘marching’, ‘toe taps’, ‘hundred’, ‘bridging’ and ‘spine stretch’. Following that, you will learn more complex exercises like opposite arm leg lift, side-lying inner tight lift, spine twist, ab curl, oblique reach, side leg lift, swan, breaststroke, and saw. The last module focuses on the last three days of this challenge, and here you will enjoy exercises that could become some of your favorites: single leg stretch, oblique lift, and side bend. We will wrap up everything with hip circles, sidekicks, and clam workouts.
No matter if you’ve already done Pilates or you are a total beginner, you will be delighted with the effect of these videos. It is no secret why Pilates is popular across the world: it decreases stress, is safe if done correctly, the exercises are low impact, and people of every age can enjoy it. What you are about to do is included in programmes many fitness centres, private studios, rehabilitation clinics and even hospitals use. If you want to become fit and strong, or if you simply want to maintain your good shape and you enjoy the feeling physical activity gives you, this course is for you. The best thing of all is, a minimum amount of accessories is needed to enjoy Pilates and its benefits. If you have a mat, towel and pillow, you are good to go. So, why wait?
