AUGUST Subscription - What's on offer?: 

1 Pilates - stretch - some call it Yogilates - 43 minutes

This workout is one to do when you are feeling the need to go slower with your moves, focus the mind with intention to pay attention to your body. Breathe deeply into each pose, there are strong moments for focus with upper body rotations, half roll downs, rollovers plus more. Using your own body weight you are able to lengthen and strengthen the entire body with flexion, extension and rotation.

2. Pilates prop free - 41 minutes

This prop free Pilates class is an all body workout. Remember slow and steady workouts can be additionally challenging as we focus on position of the body versus rushing through the class. This workout is slower in pace yet works across back extension, side stretches and leg work (outer and inner) and a strong abdominal focus with roll ups, leg circles and more.

3. Pilates prop free - high intensity - 30 minutes

This 30 minute prop free fast paced Pilates workout will get the heart rate up and a high possibility of a wet t-shirt by the time you have finished.

5.  Pilates with chair workout (+ the magic circle for bit too) - 42 minutes

Pairing up with Pilates and a chair workout.  This has been created not as an opt-out-workout, but one that will work glutes (yep that would be squats), hamstrings (hip rolls), shoulder girdle (planks) and abdominals plus more.

Melinda's MORE BODY 39 minute Pilates stretch and resistance band workout uses opposing forces to build strength. The workout will challenge your balance, work your biceps, triceps and glutes through squats. Outer thighs get a challenged from the beginning with the standing exercises and continue with half plank knee openings, single and double leg stretch using opposite actions for stronger resistance. The workout is at a slower pace and do make sure you try the 'roll up to standing' challenge at the very end.

11. Bonus - Pilates with hand weights - 17 minutes workout
