Back to the Mat: Day #5

Enrollment for The Balanced Life Sisterhood is currently closed, but will open again in 2019. CLICK HERE to join the waitlist.

Now, on to day #5 of the Back to the Mat challenge…

While Pilates is my main thing, I also love teaching barre workouts. Barre is a great way to change things up, while continuing to focus on proper form and efficient movement. And it really helps you to feel the burn.

Today I’m leading you through a barre-inspired Pilates workout titled: Barre on the Beach.

You don’t need a barre for this routine, but if your balance is a little shaky, you may want to have a chair or countertop nearby.

In today’s workout, you’ll sculpt long, lean legs and improve your balance by challenging your core strength. Get ready to feel the burn!

The Back to the Mat workouts are no longer available to the public, but they are always available for Sisterhood members! Curious about becoming a member and having continued access to these workouts and SO many more? CLICK HERE to join the waitlist!

    I have limited ankle mobility which has never stopped me in Pilates but some of the moves today took some modification that made me uncomfortable with my knee movement- it was a good video & workout but maybe you would consider a Pilates only leg workout in the future? Without the barre inspiration?
    Thanks for the videos, they’re very good. Just what I needed.

      Hi Leah! I’m so glad you’re loving the workouts. Great suggestion! Thanks so much for sharing it. Robin has created several leg workouts on the mat (no barre inspiration), and they’re all available to Sisterhood members!

    Tough on my ankle…even after almost 2 years of recovery from a broken ankle in 3 places I have trouble with flexibility. This was good though doing what I can!

    Any ideas for crunchy sounding knees? Love these workouts!!

    • Teddi Lamons 8 months ago

      Hi Lee Anna! As long as you don’t have any pain, that popping is pretty normal. To help, you can try adjusting your position by turning your feet more inward. You can also adjust your squat by not going down as far. I hope that helps! 🙂
