The foundation of a strong body lies below the waistline — in the abs, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Concentrating on the lower half of the body can help you strengthen your abdominal core, or "powerhouse," which is the source of all Pilates movements.
Filmed entirely outdoors in the stunning Canadian Rockies, Pilates Lower Body Workout focuses on the muscles of the lower body, including the legs and feet. Certified fitness instructor and master Pilates trainer Jillian Hessel guides you through an invigorating workout that engages the powerhouse in unison with the breath. For those with limited flexibility and strength, instructor Tara Russell simultaneously demonstrates a modified version of the workout.
With regular practice, Pilates can give you more energy, strength, and tone. Add this workout to your daily exercise routine, and you can begin to sculpt the long, lean lower body you want.
The complete 25-minute workout includes:
- Warm-up exercises to identify the powerhouse and align the body
- Mat exercises to condition the abs, hips, buttocks, and thighs
- Vertical alignment exercises to refine posture and balance
This is a great workout for all levels, from beginners to advanced practitioners!
Recommended props: Pilates mat, Pilates Bodyband™, cushion.
