Your July Five are here! The photos below are meant to jog your memory about moves we have done together. Click here for detailed instructions. See if you can do one minute of these every day this week.
This month I have extra special guest fitness models Kelsey, Ella and Josie. The weather has been so nice we headed down to the waterfront for these photos.
These girls like to do Pilates at home with their mamma. Look how good they are at the bear crawl!
If you are older than seven this move may prove more difficult than it appears. Start on hands and knees, lift your knees off the ground and try moving forward, back and side to side.
Here’s mamma and Josie doing bird dog, our stabilization move.
The pedestrians and cyclists have become more interesting to Ella…
Medicine Ball Push Up:
And now the ladies demonstrate both a straight leg and a knees down version of the med ball push up.
Look at this sweet face!
This elbow to knee move works your obliques.
I didn’t get a great shot of the ladies doing pigeon so here is Suzanne demonstrating this version, using a block to allow her hips to relax.
