The March Five

About the Five: Each month I offer five exercises to improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility. My hope is that you will go through these on your own or with me at least three times a week.

  • Boat
  • Single Leg Kick
  • Pilates Push Up
  • Crescent Lunge
  • Half Moon

Please use your best judgment as to how suitable these are for you right now.
