Hi, I'm Michelle with Pilates Studio City. Today, we're here to do a workout plan for Pilates and yoga. We're at the Pilates section right now, and we're going to be working on our legs and Pilates, when you work on your legs, it's designed to pick your butt up, lift it up to strengthen those glutes, strengthen that lower back. So, we're going to start, I'm going to come down on my right side. I'm going to line the back of my, the back of my back towards the edge of the mat. Toes are going to come towards the front corner of the mat. So, you're going to be in a piked position. From here, so I just don't want you to chill like this. Pull your belly button in. I want you to lift up. You can come up on your forearm but I don't want you to dunk down into your joints so come up on your forearm, belly button pulled in, or you can lower out but if you lower out, still keep some space in between the mat and yourself, lifting up. So, hips stay stacked right on top of each other. So, it's easy when we're doing our leg exercises to roll back to the back or back to the front but you want to make sure to keep your hips stacked on top of each other. So, pointing your toes, you point up and then you flex your foot, exhaling down. I want you to point your toe to inhale up, flex your foot, exhaling down. We're inhaling up, pointing, belly button pulled in, flex, coming down, hips stacked right on top of each other. Point up, exhale down. So you'll give me ten on each side. Once you're done roll around to your left side, give me ten on your left side. Do this every day, you'll be sure to see a difference in your glutes.
