Covid and quarantine really have altered the way we all workout and train. We loved doing Yoga and Pilates at home before ‘covid’ and ‘lockdown’ became part of our regular vocabulary. We first created MerryBody Online Yoga and Pilates back in 2018! BUT 2020 really put a spanner in the works for all our workouts, right?
And yes, we realise this is very much a non-issue in terms of what else the pandemic brought… but right now we’re simply talking about your workout. And if you’re stuck for ideas, check out some of our go-to easy at home workouts, with no equipment required!
25 Minute Yoga and Pilates Fusion at Home Workout
This 25 minute at home Pilates and Yoga class is one of our favourites from MerryBody Online Studio and you can try it today! It’s got the best of both worlds: Yoga and Pilates.
In this class we focus on the side body, in less than half an hour you’ll feel the burn and bliss. Get ready to strengthen and tone your side body with a Pilates long leg sequence, followed by stretching and lengthening the side body with a dynamic Yoga flow.
You’re going to LOVE this class. Zero equipment required, just your amazing body and an internet connection (which you obviously have if you’re reading this haha). Enjoy!
7 Minute at Home Ab Workout
Ohhhh this class is so fast it’s over before you know it… and YES you still feel the burn!
In Pilates, there is a big focus on working the core. And the goal isn’t to get a 6 pack, it’s all about working those deep and important core muscles. The ones that help your posture and spine health. This is really important as you (and all of us!) age. You want to be able to do all the things, like tie your laces and use the stairs for as long as possible. Right?!
