Best Online Pilates Classes: I’m Here for You!

One of the things I struggle with is not making the time to do my Pilates workouts but having the time before and after the class. I’ve got the hour to do my Pilates practice. But, somedays the time to get to class, find a parking spot and then the time after to change and get where I am going is simply a luxury. 

Fly like and Eagle or a Swan!

As I mentioned last week Andrea Maida and I have a couple more weeks of Swans for you and your Pilates practice. This week we are getting low. We are hopping off the top of the Wunda chair and moving ourselves to the floor.

Wunda-ful Swans! More Swan Tips

Swan, an exercise in Pilates that doesn’t stick to one piece of equipment. It’s the first extension exercise we meet on the mat, it prepares us for Pulling Straps and more on the reformer. It’ takes great flight on the barrels and on the Wunda chair, it knows no ends!

Tips for Swan on the Mat

Andrea Maida and I had a request for some Swan tips in our weekly Pilates Collab. Now, I am in love with back bending. Mostly because I thought it was easy for me. What I have since discovered is how much I need to hone my strength so I didn’t just rely on my flexibility. 

My favorite ways to do the Pilates Mermaid

Alright, confession time! I pretty much hate Mermaid almost anywhere in the Pilates room. On the reformer it just feels meh, on the mat I tend to cheat or get a stretch in all the “wrong” places. On the Cadillac, the side over aka Mermaid is a massive challenge for me. But, one day I discovered some moments of love for Mermaid on the Wunda chair.

Types of Pilates Classes: Explore Your Options!


Those of you who know my Pilates story have already heard that my first years of Pilates were only mat Pilates classes. I rearranged my entire work schedule so I could take class five days a week! I was obsessed with getting in my Pilates workout. I had no idea what other types of Pilates classes were out there and this was pre-working out online.

Online Mat Pilates Class: Contain that Core!

Contain your core mat class

In my personal Pilates practice, I’ve been noticing that while I can connect to my second seat quite well. I have been leaving my lower core hanging out! It’s so funny how our bodies like to “forget” something we already worked on ages ago. But, needless to say, I’ve been cheating a bit.
