How are you feeling after the last two days?
This is our last day of Pilates for this week. Day 4 – is an Introduction to Barre classes.
You’ll need a chair, bench or couch ready to hold onto for stability.
During Day 5 – you’ll have the option to use small hand weights. If you’re keen to do some strength work, and you don’t have weights, you can use soup cans or water bottles filled with water.
There are many different levels of fitness and experience in this challenge group.
Because of this we’re starting off steady, so if you’re new to Pilates or just getting back into exercise, you can build strength and also prevent injury.
The intensity will increase as the weeks go on, so if you’re intermediate level, there’ll be more challenging videos and exercises as we go.
Remember to always listen to your body and take modifications as you need to.
Ideally you are never feeling pain in the lower back or neck, always modify if you do.
I enjoyed it, God bless you
Wow.. Loved the 3days.. Feeling great after the Pilates. Have loads of work but take out time for Pilate. Thank you Emma for the free classes. Bless you.
So glad you enjoyed them. My pleasure x
I’m really glad to have found your pilates, thank you. I did reformer & mat for years but for 5 years now, moving around & with child, I’ve just done bits at home but I prefer instruction.
The rolling down half way onto lower back, are we on our sacrum then? It is something that I’ve never quite ‘got’ / been comfortable / felt I’m doing right; I realise everybody has different spines… I have a prominent coccyx than can get sore , I’m never quite sure which but to balance on! Thank you x
Hi Shabana, lovely to hear from you. Great you found me! Yes the rolling down is on the sacrum. Yes it is different for everyone when doing this as a less flexible spine will make it more challenging. I gave someone some tips on the tailbone protruding a few days ago. Some suggeisons are (when doing the roll up or similar exercise) is to roll up two mats, so you can put one on each side of the tailbone, on each butt cheek, and so your tailbone sits in between the two mats – does that make sense? It may help to reduce the protrusion into the mat of the tailbone. It may also help to have a ticker mat under your tailbone in general. Let me know if this helps. x

Hi!!! Already in day 3 and I’m enjoying it very much. Feeling a little bit “sore” but i think it’s normal, right?
Yes that is normal! you ae working lots of muscles and maybe you haven’t worked them for a while too so you may feel more of a soreness then.
Lovin Pilates.. Done
The sore part was initially challenging for me but later I could match up after trying it twice . Thanks dear. Feeling super energetic .

Fantastic! I’m really enjoying these classes as well as the daily live sessions. So far I can only see 6 “branded” days of the 21 day challenge, but there are more other videos as well. Are these the whole pack? I’m planning to work through them all, minus the barre lessons as I’m currently staying in a tiny flat without a place to do any of that type of work. Thank you for helping me to keep up with my yoga and pilates!
Hi Lindi! Great you’re doing all the classes! yes there is just 6 days of the 21 Day challenge in the Quarantine pack. The rest are inside the Core Fit Club. Which you can join now for just $1 for the month. So great you can workout in your small flat! X
Thank you so much
