Whether you have 10 minutes or a full hour to schedule in a sweat session, pilates online classes are at the touch of your fingertips. Coined in the 1920s, Joseph Pilates combined a series of 500 moves–34 of which take place on a mat–as a way to strengthen the body and facilitate functional movement.
At Glo we strive to carry out that vision. As we strive to create a world in which everyone lives to their true potential, Glo offers unlimited access to yoga, pilates, and meditation for a set monthly fee. To empower the mind, body, and spirit is the ultimate goal of our practice. It just so happens that Pilates offers a strong foundation for any workout plan, as well.
What is Pilates?
Pilates is a low-impact workout that strengthens muscles, improves alignment, and encourages flexibility. This practice can be performed with or without equipment, with minimal space or on a reformer, or with a class or individually. Simply put, pilates is a versatile practice that focuses on slow, precise movements and breath control. A main target of pilates is the core, which is the foundation for all other exercises.
Different Types of Pilates
There are two main types of Pilates: exercises that are performed on a mat and exercises that are performed on a reformer. A reformer is a stationary machine that uses springs and bands to isolate and strengthen targeted muscles.
Since Glo is a virtual pilates online provider, most videos are focused on exercises that can be performed on a mat. These moves can be performed anywhere and anytime, which makes it extremely versatile, portable, and flexible.
No Equipment Necessary
One of the greatest aspects of yoga and pilates online is the irrelevancy of additional, expensive equipment. These practices rely heavily on the mind, body, and soul–not barbells, treadmills, and machines. In certain classes, stretch bands, weights, or blocks may be optional. However, all exercises can be performed with the most minimal accessories. We simply encourage you to minimize your thoughts and join us on the mat.
