30-Day Pilates Body Challenge: Day 6 (stretch & relax!)

Hi Beauties,

What better way to end the first week of the 30-Day Pilates Body Challenge and prepare for the next week than a little stretching and relaxation session on the mat.

30 day challenge thumb day 6

Today’s routine is meant to help you slow down, care for your body & mind and trust that you don’t have to “push, push, push” every single day.

There is great value in pausing and giving yourself a break. 

Find a quiet place (if you can) and enjoy today’s stretching & relaxation session…

Daily Check-In: show me one thing you’re doing to prepare for a healthy week! Use the hashtag #30daypilatesbody on Instagram and Twitter so I can see your posts. 🙂

    Thank you, this felt wonderful! I’ve been doing workouts throughout the day, in between my weekly meal prep, including a 45 minute zumba…who doesn’t love dancing? This day 6 exercise was perfect for ending the day. I’m going to include it at the end of my daily workouts, it was such a relaxing way to end the day.
    Thanks, Robin. 🙂

    Hi Robin,
    You mentioned scoliosis in today’s session and I wondered if you’d mind talking with me about stretching/Pilates/exercise ideas for my teenage daughter who has recently been diagnosed. Thanks!

  27. Debra 5 years ago

    Need this one everyday! Thanks Robin!

  28. Rebecca 5 years ago

    I have scoliosis as well, except my spine curves both left and right like a little “s”. Luckily, we caught it early on and were able to keep it at bay through regular chiropractic visits, so it’s never really been an issue for me. The only thing is that my lower back (where the curvature is located) is pretty weak, which makes it both more difficult and more important to maintain a strong core. That’s why I love pilates! Thanks for the wonderful stretch routine 🙂
