5 Minute Pilates Morning Stretch

June 19, 2018

Sometimes there’s nothing better than an active stretch to get you going first thing in the morning. Even if you’re not feeling up to a full-on Pilates or HIIT workout, just getting a nice stretch in at the beginning of the day can make all the difference when it comes to increased energy, flexibility, and a positive state of mind.


I thought I would put together a quick 5 minute Pilates Morning Stretch routine that includes 16 different stretches and can be done any time, anywhere. The routine can even be done at night to wind down from an active day.




Here is the stretch routine:


Meditative Breathing


Spine Stretch Forward




Shoulder Bridge


Roll up




Downward Facing Dog




Upward Facing Dog


Child’s Pose


Straddle Side Stretch


Butterfly Stretch


Relevé Balance


Shoulder Rolls


Neck Stretch


Head Rolls
