We also introduce the adductor lift to work those inner thigh muscles as well as your core and migrate over to the see how the cat position is done correctly.

A slight change of pace to start off in this video as we are introduced to the benefits and importance of relaxation of the body (and mind) to get the best out of our exercise routine and achieve greatest benefits. A great session for unwinding at the end of any busy day. Definitely one to play through again and again in the future.

In this session we return to Mike’s progress and learn about the use of the resistance band used on this occasion with the side lying clam. We also address tension and start to stabilse the scapula with scapula depressions. Sounds technical – but the video makes it so easy to follow . . .

On the side with two legs elevated – that’s starting to get a little challenging. So to is ab prep 2, but that’s why we have the detailed one on one instruction and the videos to follow. Getting these moves absolutely right without the guidance of Bridgette would be an even bigger challenge. This is getting meaty!

This phase of the course is all about developing what has gone before with subtle progression and concentration on good form. Follow Helen and Mark as they build their confidence with this latest session. Be prepared to pause the video and repeat individual sequences. When you feel comfortable with the entire routine, you can graft it onto the end of one of the sessions you have practiced previously or repeat the routine over again in one session.

This short routine concentrates upon side bends and rotation. Such movement is not frequently encountered by us in our daily lives and so short, regular, careful exercises such as these will gradually build our mobility and strength to enable us to function far better when we do need to move in such ways. Once confident, repeat the routine over again in one session.

We’re practicing hip work and a little more side bend work in this session. It’s important to keep our hips mobile and to try (without over-exerting) to improve strength and agility here. Concentration is key in this subtle series of exercises that will supplement what you have already learned. Remember to finish with a gentle, steady gluteal stretch. Holding that warm muscle stretch for a minute each side. Once confident, repeat the routine over again in one session.

Why buy an MPC course? I could get a cheap DVD!

Yes – you could just buy the latest celebrity Pilates DVD or book. But there’s just no way of knowing what the quality and guidance or structure that is likely to be on offer. We have even found free Pilates video clips on the internet, but if people were to actually try and follow along with them. ? Painful! Whatever else is out there – it all seems so random to us!

Weight Loss

It should always be borne in mind that we should all be concerned with the basics of good nutrition and regular exercise throughout our lives.

Is Pilates easy exercise?

Well – yes and no. Pilates is about careful, slow, gentle movement and not the massive, rapid, demanding actions found in some sports or other exercise disciplines. But whilst it is a gentle form of exercise, the precision and control of body movement required is quite high. This takes careful practise and the development of good muscular strength, control and co-ordination to be able to master the movements. Thankfully, the exercise modules we have designed are very carefully structured to lead you on a journey of physical development. It cannot be emphasized enough that the modules must be followed exactly as presented and practised to steadily build up your abilities.

How to Get Started With Pilates

Before starting any new exercise regime it is important to be sure you are fit enough and will not cause yourself harm. Our advice to any new student is to have a medical check up by your doctor.
