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

 

Saw

 

Shoulder Bridge

 

Roll up

 

Cat-Cow

 

Downward Facing Dog

 

Plank

 

Upward Facing Dog

 

Child’s Pose

 

Straddle Side Stretch

 

Butterfly Stretch

 

Relevé Balance

 

Shoulder Rolls

 

Neck Stretch

 

Head Rolls

 

 

Enjoy!

 

xx,

Melanie
