TONE & TARGET
  • Quick Abs with Chair L2

    Level 2 – Pace: Fast
    When you only have 5 minutes and want to get some quick abdominal work in, this is the sequence you need! It’s also great when you have lumbar issues, and you can’t articulate the lumbar spine!

  • Arms and posture - 9 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Slow
    Let’s tone the arms! In Pilates we usually work with very light weights… but the beauty of it is that as we work the arms, we also engage and control the whole postural alignment of the body making an exercise that might seem easy very challenging and intense!

  • Fire Your Glutes! - 4 min

    Level 1 - Pace: Slow
    The glutes are so important for our postural alignment.
    This a quick routine that you can easily jump into when you know that you have a little time available and you want to work on your pelvis.

  • Waist, hips and arms - 13 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Moderate
    Perfect quick workout to get into waist, hips and arms when you have little time for it!
    Accelerate the pace and the reps if you want to make it more intense, just make sure your form is proper and safe!

  • Hips & adductors - 9 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Moderate
    Quick and to the point! When you have 10 minutes, and you want to keep your hips in shape! The glute medius (outer hip) is opposite and synergic to the inner thigh muscles: that’s why this little combo is even more effective and powerful!

  • The 100: Abs Killing workout - 12 min

    Open Level - Pace: moderate
    Do you only have a few minutes, but you want to feel your abs and work them deep? This is perfect for you! The 100 and the abdominal series are iconic sections of the Pilates Mat and believe me, they get to the CORE in a deep and intense (good intense) way!

  • Buns of Steel - 12 min

    Level 2 - Pace: moderate
    Glutes, glutes and more glutes… they are functional and aesthetic! Here you have a fun and quick sequence to get the job done. Increase the number of reps and sets if you feel that you are ready for it!

  • Shoulder: proper movement - 8 min

    Open level - Pace: Slow
    These drills are great to warm up the shoulders before a class, while rehabbing from little tears and inflammation and also to get ready for your “A” game. The 5-point shoulder de-coaptation, scapulae mobilization and some stretching with the towel will help you safely ach...

  • Building the Plank - 20 min

    Open Level - Pace: Slow
    When something is hard, break it down, deconstruct it, pull it apart and all of a sudden you realize that you can do already so much (so many components) of what that exercise is made of. The plank is a full body exercise and its very beneficial to everyone to maintain and...

  • The Ab Series (Romana's) - 3 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Moderate
    In Joseph Pilates book we only find 2 exercises of what we today call the “abdominal series”: the single leg bent, and the double leg bent. Romana, seeing that people needed to strengthen the core added three exercises: the single straight leg, the double straight leg and...

  • Segmental Glutes Reinforcement - 33 min

    Level 3 - Pace: Fast
    With these variations of the hip extensions, we’ll work segmentally on different parts of the glutes. For glute max deep we’ll “slice” the muscle in 4 different parts and work independently with all of them so that we have the chance to efficiently work on those areas that ar...

  • Glutes with Rescue LOOP - 15 min

    Level 1 - Pace: Moderate
    I love hip extensions, squats, Romanian, shoulder bridges, sidekicks, single leg balance and jumps… but we can get into the pelvis and its reinforcement also with Rescue LOOP.
    Place the feet in the foot strap and let’s connect that spring resistance to the pelvis!

  • The Teaser Breakdown - 13 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Slow
    The Pilates Teaser is often times misunderstood. Like the 100, it’s iconic for the method and it’s feared for its complexity of strength, flexibility and coordination. Come and break it down with me so that everything will make more sense and most importantly it will feel bet...

  • Closing the Gap - 15 min

    Open Level - Pace: Slow
    Many women find out what a DIASTASIS is only after they deliver. Not too many OBGYN’s talk about it and honestly not too many women want to share their frustration about it, and they keep silent. The diastasis is the separation (gap) between the two parts of the rectus abd...

  • 9 Parts of the Abs - 9 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Fast
    This is a unique series of ab exercises to improve the motility of the large intestine. It’s great for constipation, irregularity, colitis and other offset conditions related to digestion. On top of inducing regularity, it’s also a great abdominal reinforcement! It’s quick an...
