How lucky are we to have such lovely summer weather? I have been taking my Pilates and yoga classes outdoors this month.
Here Kate demonstrates Bridge – one of our August Five.
Start with knees and feet hip distance apart. Relax your back.
Press into your feet to lift your spine one vertebra at a time. Think of stretching the whole front side of your body.
In the Pilates variation you continue rolling up and down, breathing and relaxing your back. The yoga version you hold for five breaths then slowly come down. Take your pick and see if you can do this move once a day for one minute.
