This week I've been really moved by the generous messages from you all. I'd like to share a few here to remind you that even though you might be working out solo on your mat, you're part of an international community of pretty awesome people. I'd also like to take this opportunity to welcome the new members to the platform, feel free to get in touch or comment below with any questions, comments or ideas for new classes. I'm here for you!

I've had a lot of love for the Pilates Circuit classes and in particular for Pilates With Weights. I'd like to thank Lizzie, Lola and Ana for you kind feedback on the circuit classes, keep up the good work! Pilates With Weights was originally going to be a 3 part series, but I couldn't resist one more (to be uploaded next week). The new video has a LOT of core work so enjoy it my friends and keep an eye on social for the release day.
Here's what Lizzie had to say about Pilates With Weights:
"Transforming my work from home space into my workout from home space today! Love the new Pilates with weights class 💪🏻💪🏻would love the idea of more and some with bands as you mentioned 🙏🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😘thank you Christine xx"

Another self-starter who gets top marks this week is Helen. Helen came back to work after a 2 week break and felt she needed to move her body. Here's what she had to say:
"My body did not enjoy sitting at a desk yesterday after 2 weeks of free movement, so much so I even ran at lunchtime...Today I listened to my stiff body and started my day with @christine.freedomphysio beginners Pilates session. What an awesome way to start the day 🤩 Pilates on demand: wherever and whenever you choose. I guess that means I’m out of excuses! Such a great class, super easy to follow with clear explanations of what your body should be doing and should feel like. I can’t wait to do it again tomorrow." (And yes, Helen did indeed do a second class the following day).
That stretchy little band has never been so torturous! Gwan' you won't regret it! Find the second resistance band HIIT video right here and don't forget to let me know how it goes if you try it: https://www.freedomphysio.org/hiitpilates
