A simple and effective 5-day workout that is suitable for all levels. Do a class every day for 5 days, or repeat the series each week, for 4 weeks, to really see a difference. The classes are kept short, around 15 minutes or so, so that you can find the time to fit a workout into your busy schedule.

These classes cover abdominal and core strength, boosting energy, increasing flexibility, improving posture, and finally strengthening and toning the body.

The daily workouts are designed to help you:

  • build lean muscles & increase strength
  • reduce tension
  • improve flexibility & posture
  • increase your energy levels

If you make the effort, practicing Pilates for just 15 minutes a day is hugely beneficial. It doesn’t matter what level you’re at, if you do these classes every day for 5 days you will start to see a difference. And if you repeated these 5 classes, every week for a month you would not only see, but feel, a remarkable difference in your body.

A number of my students have told me how much they like the format of the 5-Day Challenges that I run periodically. It is so often really hard to justify the time you need to spend on yourself for a half an hour or more Pilates workout.  Busy lives, work, horses, husbands, dogs, children or grandchildren tend to take precedence. However research shows that we have more energy and are fitter and healthier if we can find the time to do a little Pilates every day. 

So I listened to your comments and this month sees the start of a new monthly 5-Day Workout Series. March’s Workout Series comprises of five 15 minute(ish) workouts that can be done separately on a daily basis or linked together to combine an hour plus workout.

The classes in the workout are suitable for most levels as modifications are offered. However some of the exercises are designed to challenge you and therefore increase your suppleness, strength and fitness. Although each class focuses on a specific body area as always in Pilates, all exercises provide a general body workout.

The 3 basic principles that we need in order to ride well are the same as those required for Pilates, correct posture, spinal alignment and a strong core. 

These 3 key components combine together not only to create a healthier body for the rider, but also to promote better balance and security in the saddle (which increases our confidence). They also allow us to use our arms and legs more efficiently, which enables us to communicate more clearly with our horse.

The new 5 session “Rider’s Repair” course provides a selection of exercises and stretches to improve the posture.  In the first three sessions the focus is on lateral alignment (obliques), and spinal alignment (core, pelvis and hips). In the final 2 sessions we take a closer look at body control exercises for the legs, shoulders and arms.

The course is suitable for all levels and each session can be done separately (on a daily basis), or combined together for a much longer and more intense workout.

Around 2 hours of video instruction.

This complete body half hour workout is suitable for advanced beginners or those of intermediate level. Most of the movements are not too difficult so anyone who has been doing Pilates for sometime, or who is reasonably fit should be able to manage most of the exercises. In addition to working on our posture, bottom and legs the session also includes movements that focus on the deep abdominal connection as well as the mobility of the spine.

Designed to increase your core strength, help you become suppler and to create a better body awareness, this 7 day Body Reset course is suitable for all levels – whether you are new to Pilates or an old hand. Each session is around 20 minutes long, so can easily be fitted in to a busy day. The course starts off slowly with the intensity increasing as the week goes on. If you’re new or just getting back into exercise, please know your own limits, listen to your body, take the easier modifications and remember to take a rest if you need to. I would recommend if you are new or coming back to Pilates that you repeat days 1 & 2  a few times before progressing to days 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

This 5-session course is a great way to re-introduce yourself to Pilates after a break, whether because of a holiday or an injury. The sessions are short (average duration 15 minutes) so you can easily fit them in to a busy day. Pilates is known for helping people develop both strength and flexibility and this course will set you up to achieve these goals. You can do each class once, or if you are really tight or unfit try doing Days 1, 2 and 3 several times before attempting Days 4 and 5.

Pilates is for EVERYBODY. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, athletic or stiff as a board, total beginner, or an old hand at Pilates. Pilates is a gentle (yet powerful) form of exercise that allows you to improve your suppleness and fitness regardless of your starting point. 

In this 5 session course we focus on five different areas of the body that are most likely to give us “problems” at some point in our lives. However, it is important to remember that the point of pain may not be the cause of the issue. Very often issues with our knees stem from our hips, whilst problems in our back can stem from weakness in our abdominal muscles, the hip flexors or gluteal muscles.

If you are new to Pilates or returning to Pilates after some time, be patient with yourself. Some exercises and stretches in the course will be easy for you to perform, while others may be too much for you at the moment. That’s fine! Don’t worry if you can’t do the movement now, modify whenever you need to, trust the process, and just keep doing the classes.

The Core, or ‘Powerhouse’ as it is frequently referred to in Pilates as our entire central unit between our lower ribs and the bottom of our pelvis. So it includes all of the muscles responsible for the stabilisation of our spine and pelvis. If our Core is weak, or our pelvis unstable we can suffer from back, hip or even knee pain, so having a strong Core is essential for our well being. In this 5 part series we look at how to best find and engage our Core muscles and what exercises we can do to help strengthen them.

Although the Psoas is a really important muscle, it is also relatively unknown. You cannot see the Psoas and as it does not appear on surface muscles of the body charts, many people have only a vague idea of where it is located. 

If you have low back pain, hip pain, or various other tightness and stress in your body, stretching and/or strengthening the Psoas can potentially completely fix these issues. The Psoas affects our posture and helps stabilize the spine. If it is either too tight, or too weak, it can cause lower back and/or pelvic pain.
