5 Pilates Moves for Brides.

Pilates is a great form of exercise that can help brides-to-be tone and strengthen their bodies in preparation for their big day. Here are five Pilates moves that are especially beneficial for brides:

  1. The Hundred: This classic Pilates move targets the abs and helps to build core strength. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Curl your head, neck, and shoulders off the mat, and extend your arms by your sides. Pump your arms up and down for 100 counts, inhaling for five pumps and exhaling for five pumps.

  2. The Swan: This move targets the upper back and can help improve posture. Start by lying on your stomach with your hands by your shoulders and your elbows bent. Press into your hands and lift your chest and head off the mat, keeping your gaze forward. Lower back down and repeat.

  3. Single Leg Circles: This move targets the hips and legs, and can help to improve balance. Lie on your back with your legs extended straight up towards the ceiling. Lower one leg down towards the mat, circling it around and back up to the starting position. Repeat with the other leg.

  4. Pilates Push-Up: This move targets the arms and chest, and can help to build upper body strength. Start in a plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Lower down into a push-up, keeping your elbows close to your body, and then press back up to the starting position.

  5. The Teaser: This advanced move targets the abs and requires a lot of core strength. Start by lying on your back with your arms extended overhead and your legs straight out in front of you. Lift your arms and legs up towards the ceiling, and then roll up into a seated position, balancing on your sit bones. Lower back down and repeat.

Remember to always listen to your body and work at your own pace. If you're new to Pilates, consider taking a class or working with a certified Pilates instructor to ensure proper form and technique.
