Once you have committed to the six principles of Pilates, (centering, concentration, control, precision, breathing and flow). You can give yourself a mini 5 minute pilates standing work out. First stand against a wall with head, shoulders and buttocks on wall and feet just a few inches off the wall. Inhale and exhale deeply concentrating on your ribcage expanding sideways against the wall. Do ten deep breaths. Then lower your head and roll down holding your stomach muscles tight and letting your vertebras roll off the walk until you get as close to your toes as possible letting your head hang then roll back up. Repeat five times. Stand away from the wall and in slight v position with your feet, and standing as tall as you can lift up and down on your toes. Hold your abdominals tight and repeat ten times. Torso twist, lead from your center turn from the waist up looking over one shoulder then the other. Repeat five times. Wall pushups. Turn and face the wall standing arms length from the wall, place your hands at shoulder height making sure your shoulder blades are down and tight against the spine bend and length your elbows and keep the core tight. Inhaling as you lower and exhaling as you lift. Repeat ten times. Push yourself away from the wall and take a deep breathing enjoying your straighter posture!
