How do I access the Pilates Videos?

10 week Course Membership gives you access to the Pilates Videos. Videos deliver 7, 8 or 10 PILATES EXERCISES as well as the Warm Up, Standing Posture and practice of the Pilates Breathing Technique. Each video includes necessary stretches and relaxation to maximise on the benefits of each Pilates exercise. Videos range between 50 minus, an hour and just over at 1 hour 5 minutes with a separate Spine Stretch video at 10 minutes. Each of the videos has a MENU too, so you can choose which one you would like to do or scroll to the exercises you want to do.

 

I do hope you enjoy the videos. Pilates, unlike high impact or aerobic exercise, can be practised daily; in fact Joseph Pilates himself encouraged for all 34 Mat work Pilates exercises should be performed DAILY to firstly transform the body, improve fitness, strength, flexibility, control and importantly maintain all this, improving health and happiness!
