FUN-ctional Pilates: Making your Pilates sets fun as well as functional

FUN-ctional Pilates: Making your Pilates sets fun as well as functional

Looking to add a little playfulness to your Pilates routine? We’ve got you sorted. 

Get synced! 

Tune into your favourite class and sync up with your instructor’s cues. Building on coordination and mindfulness practices, this is the perfect way to stay focused and aligned while enjoying your workout. Add to this further by syncing your breath to every move, enhancing core activation, and enjoying rhythmic movements.  Why not take it one step further and craft the perfect Pilates playlist? Music is the ultimate mood booster. Select tracks that resonates with you and your workout intensity and sync to the rhythm of the beat. 

Spice it up with props 

Adding props to your Pilates routine, challenges the functional basics and amplifies the fun factor. 

Whether it’s a resistance band workout, Pilates ball, ring, or weighted bands, adding a prop can be so much fun (and if you don't have these already, what are you waiting for? Check out our accessories!) In fact, our newest prop, the maple pole is perfect for this. The maple pole not only encourages picture-perfect technique, it oozes playfulness, often likened to circus work! You can score your very own maple pole here, and follow along under the guidance of our instructors in the YR-At Home home app.
