In this first class, we'll cover the essentials while working on control and balance. After briefly discussing prop options, we'll begin on the mat with a Pilates warm-up for the abdominals, explore a side leg series, then move to the barre to practice staple moves like plies and over the rainbows. We'll continue to build on this sequence throughout the program, steadily increasing the challenge and burn. Props Needed: A chair (or barre). Props Suggested: A small stability ball or towel.
