A Simple Pilates Sequence For You

by pilates32 on November 19, 2011

It has been over two weeks since my last post here on Pilates 32 and despite many attempts to get to the computer and share with you all our updates, things just seem to always get in the way. This can also be the case for finding our own time to exercise and complete a Pilates session. Cold, dark nights leave us feeling more like a night on the couch, then a night out at the gym or at a Pilates Class.

Over the last few weeks, I have been teaching more and more classes as well as teaching physical education in schools. I recently started a later evening class just for horse riders, who want to add Pilates into their week to help keep back problems at bay. I had an overwhelming response of interest to this class and was full up for the first session. I have been working with horse riders for some time now and I must say they are pretty extraordinary people. They’re amazing people with great depths of character, well you have to be pretty extraordinary to get up early and go home late when looking after horses.

(I will soon be writing a post regarding Pilates for horse riders and why it is an essential exercise form to do. If you are interested in this area of subject, or have any questions please send me an email)

As well as teaching so much, we as a team here at Pilates 32 have been working on a ton of new footage for the site. We are currently in the process of filming this and editing ready to add to the site or email to those subscribers. Early in the new year, I will release exclusive footage for subscribers, including some extraordinary sequence tutorials. Be sure to add your name and email address below to get first access to this.

Not wanting to leave you without any tutorials or posts for sometime, I wanted to share the idea of sequencing for this videoblog. Sequencing, quite simply, is the combination of exercises flowing from one to another with very little rest or release stretch. This simple Pilates sequence would be a combination of three moves we have shown here previously on Pilates 32. So why not try completing one after the other, for an effective three move sequence.

Start with swimming on the knees, for good core stability and glute strengthening. Move on to your back for the one leg stretch and some ab work. Finally finish with some more core stability with the shoulder bridge.

And there you have it. A nice 10 minute sequence for you (if you repeat it 2 or 3 times). Aim to complete 10-12 repetitions per exercise. Good luck.

All the best
Ian
