Today was our very first “Pilates Hiking Club” class, and what a perfect morning, sunny and 60. If you want to do Pilates, need a cardio workout, and love to be outdoors, this class is for you! Step outside the studio and enjoy some of the most beautiful trails in Evergreen!
Walking up gentle slopes, we found new mindfulness of our breathing, gait, and posture. We stopped along the way, making use of boulders and rocks for core, arm, and leg exercises. We biceps curled while listening to a babbling stream, and enjoyed core work with a cool breeze on our foreheads. Some 25 minutes into our hike we reached our summit and celebrated with Mountain Climbers, Planks, and Stepping Up & Down. As we made our descent to the studio, we partnered with Doug Firs and Ponderosa Pines for Leg Circles, and completed our trek with Leg and Hip stretches on an opportunistic fence. What a lovely way to workout and begin the day!
