Classic Pilates Exercise

These classic Pilates exercises that will help to tighten your core, improve your flexibility and overall physical strength.

Vie Roll Up

The Full Body Roll Up strengthens your core, while also stretching your back, hip flexors and hamstrimgs. It is much more productive than crunches or sit-ups because its full range of motion works to engage more of your muscle fibers.

Start by laying flat on your back and rolling into a C curve, then uncurling back into a C curve as you exhale back into the mat. Make sure to keep your feet on the ground. It is easiest to do this exercise when you can articulate your spine bone by bone without gaps.

Series of Five

The Pilates series of 5 is a group of classic Pilates mat moves focused on your core. Many say it’s the perfect ab exercise routine.

It consists of 5-10 reps each of Single Straight Leg Stretches, Double Leg Stretches, Single Straight Leg Stretches, Double Straight Leg Lower/Lift and Criss Cross.

While perfoming these exercises, use your abdominal muscles to keep your upper body curl and to keep your pelvis stable.

Don’t worry if the positions seem too challenging, there are modifications for beginners.

Pilates Push Ups

The Pilates push-up is an advanced move because it takes quite a bit of core strength, arm strength and stability to fully perform.

Begin by standing with good Pilates posture and your arms straight up over your head.  Next you pull your abs in, curve your spine down and begin to roll toward the mat.

Walk out to a front support plank position. Hold plank position with straight arms and lower to the mat. Walk back, roll up to standing and inhale as you lift your arms.

We Honor the Legacy of Joseph Pilates

Joseph Pilates (1880-1967) created Pilates almost 100 years ago. It was originally called Contrology, because of how it used slow controlled movements to tighten, tone and strengthen the body.

The New York Pilates method is the world’s first and oldest Pilates professional training program. This is the purest form of Pilates, since the methods are derived directly from the archive and training of Joseph Pilates.

Vie is excited to be Ann Arbor’s exclusive New York Authentic Pilates studio. Vie’s instructors have all completed rigorous training and certification and are among the most knowledgeable in the field.

Starting a regular Pilates routine is a great way to meet your fitness goals, whether you’d like to increase flexibility and muscle tone, or lose weight and have overall better health. Vie’s Pilates instructors will help you start the program that is perfect for you.
