We love practicing Pilates whenever we’re looking for a low-impact way to tone up and build muscle. Pilates has been shown to build core strength and increase flexibility throughout the whole body, and it’s great for learning how to breathe more mindfully as well. It can be really fun to take Pilates reformer classes in a gym with a professional instructor, but sometimes we just don’t have the time.
When we’re looking for a simple and effective Pilates mat workout, one of our favorite places to go is the YouTube channel Move with Nicole. She has tons of videos available for whatever workout we’re looking for and explains everything in an easy-to-understand way. Here are a few of our favorites.
