STRENGTHENS YOUR CORE AND IMPROVES COORDINATION WHILE STRETCHING YOUR HIPS AND BACK.
Coordinate your breath with movement while you grab one knee and extend the other then alternate. Keep your shoulders away from your ears and push your belly button in towards your spine while you connect your back to the mat.
STRENGTHENS CORE WITH MORE INTENSITY WHILE CONNECTING BREATH WITH MOVEMENT, IT WORKS BODY IN OPPOSITION AND STRENGTHENS YOUR BACK.
Hold both knees together in a tight ball. On an inhale, extend both legs forward and arms back while pushing your back into the mat. Exhale and circle arms around the body as you pull knees back in and hold onto both knees. Find the length of the movement, engage the core and stretch the arms and legs in opposite directions.
STRETCHES HAMSTRINGS, STRENGTHENS ABS AND IMPROVES COORDINATION WHILE CONNECTING BREATH WITH MOVEMENT.
Extend one leg up into the sky and gently grab behind the knee (or calves) with both hands. Pulse the leg twice towards you for the stretch and then switch legs. Try to keep legs as straight as possible while keeping belly button pulled in towards your spine and shoulders relaxed down the back.
STRENGTHENS LOWER ABS AND STRETCHES HAMSTRINGS.
With your feet in a Pilates V (heels together, toes apart), extend both legs straight up into the sky with your hands behind the head. Inhale, lowering the legs toward the floor then exhale lifting them back up towards the sky. Stretch the legs long and pull belly button in keeping upper body lifted at all times.
WORKS THE OBLIQUES AND STRETCHES THE SIDE OF THE BODY TO IMPROVE COORDINATION AND CONNECTION TO BREATH.
This is a cross body action, where opposite shoulder moves towards the opposite knee. As one knee pulls in, the other leg extends straight. Then switch sides and twist. Try to keep hips planted on the floor while lifting through the ribs and shoulders. Breathe with every twist and keep elbows open.
