15 minute glutes/legs workout!


Happy Sunday everyone! For all my people who HATE glutes time! This is a great, short workout to really isolate this area further and get strong, toned glutes! We also bring in upper body control and of course core work! Glutes exercises are often always challenging because we don’t isolate them fully in normal workouts, but use them along with our other leg muscles.

Pilates for relaxation- A 20 minute workout

IMG_0017Pilates for relaxation

This weekend I hosted my THIRD Pilates Retreat Day. This is a whole day dedicated to you. To relaxation. To pilates and exercise. To socialising. To tea breaks. I first came up with the idea when I was getting super stressed out and just wished I could head off for a day or so completely to myself to free the stress and do the things I love- pilates, exercise, swim, read books, and drink tea. I figured I wasn’t alone in this thinking and thus the creation of Freshly Centered Retreat Days!
