Mind Body Pilates Challenge // Day 6

Hi Beauties!

In today’s 15-minute Pilates routine, you’ll strengthen and sculpt the muscles of your core to tone and shape your waistline.

You’ll work the muscles of your core with a special focus on the obliques (ab muscles that run along the side of your waist) to create a strong, sleek and balanced body.

Your Mindfulness Assignment for today is pretty straight-forward, but be sure to watch the video as I’ll go into more detail at the end of today’s workout.

Keep up the great work! You’re getting stronger and healthier by the day!

  15. Mandy 3 months ago

    I keep falling back during doing the boat post. Is there any modification for that?

    • Becky Nobach 3 months ago

      Hi Mandy! We recommend that you avoid the twists with your arms until you feel like you can hold the boat exercise pose. It’s an exercise in stability and core strength so as you continue your Pilates practice, it will get easier!

    More sun in my day helps me sleep at night.

    How cow! That dip while laying on your side? That was too hard for me. Honestly, it makes me see just how weak and out of shape I am. Thank you for these!

  21. Cynthia 3 months ago

    Just finished day six! Thank you for these workouts. I do these in addition to Zumba and yoga. As I age, I am seeing how important core strength is.

  22. Beth Urban 3 months ago

    Day 6 done. Feel one hundred times better

  23. Rachel 3 months ago

    Day 6 was tough I definitely need to improve my core!!

  24. Annie 3 months ago

    Today routine was more challenging, but enjoyed it. Need lots of practice with my breathing as I find myself holding my breath.

  25. Michelle 3 months ago

    I found today the most challenging yet, but I loved it!

  26. Cher 3 months ago

    Great work out. I suffer from severe sciatic pain followed by hamstring spasms (especially when bridging). So, I’ve done Day 5 and 6. I will be going back and finishing the others. I like your style, tempo, and verbal cues helps so much!

  27. Lilly Petru 3 months ago

    Day 6-Love the exercises. Great job

  28. Nancy 3 months ago

    These are all challenging for me but I am trying. #6 was especially hard but I’m determined to finish the 10 day challenge (with many modifications!). I do feel I am benefitting from them. Thanks!!

  29. Nicci 3 months ago

  32. Susan 3 months ago

    Is there any way I can access replays of these sessions in about a month? Due to a broken bone in my foot, I am not able to do most exercises at present, but love what I am watching!

    • Becky Nobach 3 months ago

      Hi Susan! We’re sorry to hear about your broken bone in the foot and wish you a speedy recovery! These videos are available to the public for the duration of the challenge – and after that they are available on an ongoing basis for members of The Balanced Life Sisterhood. Enrollment will be re-opening this week so I would consider joining so you can continue with the challenge at your own pace! Keep your eyes peeled for details on Wednesday. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just checking in for the first time this during challenge. Iโ€™ve done them all so far and am enjoying how short they are!
    Even though Iโ€™ve been doing body weight exercise and some higher intensity 7 min workouts, Iโ€™m finding some difficulties with positioning in Pilates. Working different muscle groups, I guess.

  34. Rebecca 3 months ago

    Also- I havenโ€™t been able to find the pop up FB group. When Iโ€™ve gone to the page, it asks me to sign up for the workouts, even though I did that a couple of weeks ago.

  35. Deborah 3 months ago

    Did Day 5 yesterday and did Day 6 today. I left the workout until quite late. Think I’ll soak in the bath to help me relax and get some sleep. Thanks for the workout. I’m seeing a difference.

  36. Heather 3 months ago

    Loving this challenge! Haven’t missed a day!

  37. Julia 3 months ago

    Hi Just completed day 6, breathing and abs control a little off today, need to stay focused on abs stability. Will try today’s challenge again later to see if I can do it better. My side hip bones feel sore temporarily after leaning on them too long. I like the stretches though.

  38. Shiree 3 months ago

    Wow! Great work out! Absolutely love this! Feeling great.

  39. Marcie 3 months ago
