Contemporary Pilates : Mixing It Up

Play

Start your journey with A Body Forever

This contemporary class uses the ring for loads of juicy variations and modifications. The ring is used to create proprioception and feedback as well as instability within different exercises to challenge the body and core in different ways. The ring is a great piece of equipment that can be used for so many different workouts, not just with Pilates. It stretches, strengthens and lengthens the body from head to toe. Legend has it that Joseph Pilates created the first ring (a.k.a Magic Circle) from the metal rings that encircle wooden beer barrels; this would not have been easy to find and repurpose in early 20th Century Germany.

Paired workouts are usually a suggested fusion of both methods or an extension of the workout you have just completed.

What it works: Total Body

How much room they need: One mat 

Tips: If at any point any exercises seem too intense make sure you regress. You can always come to a lying position on your back, feet down, and do some ab prep (ab crunches) or keep your legs in table top.
