Just in case you’d like some ‘homework’ to keep you moving while there are no classes over the half term break, I’ve pulled together some previously recorded sessions & some other ideas that I think you’ll enjoy. Of course, it is totally fine to give your body a rest or do some other activities instead – that’s what I’ll be doing!
Classes and short sessions:
- segmental movements for your spine (15 minutes)
- a simple release for your quads using a foam rubber ball (9 minutes)
- release neck and shoulder tension (14 minutes)
- a core, stretch & release session using a band (45 minutes)
- kettlebell circuit (30 minutes)
- core pilates (30 minutes)
- fitness pilates #137 – all the stretch and release work your body could wish for! (60 minutes)
Other ideas to try:
- Lying with your legs up the wall is a great way to gently stretch your hamstrings, manage stress, improve digestion, promote sleep, boost circulation and a whole lot more! Super-simple to do – find out more here
- Add some breathing practice into your day – it offers so many benefits – find out more here
- Do a bit of decluttering! This is one of my favourite things to do – I’m quite ruthless and having a physical clear-out always crosses-over into feeling mentally clearer. Just don’t do what I recently did and drive around for weeks with bags full of charity shop things-to-be-donated things in the back of your car – that’s just moving your clutter into another space!! There are some great tips here
- Find a local ‘slow ways’ walk and check it out. There are currently over 8,000 Slow Ways routes. This unique network of routes was drafted online by volunteers during the Spring 2020 lockdown. The next challenge is to walk, review and verify them all – checking over 100,000km of Slow Ways routes. It’s a big ambition for 2022. Thousands of people are getting involved. Up for helping? Simply choose, walk and review a Slow Ways route here.
