Hi, I’m Lesley Logan, the co-founder of onlinepilatesclasses.com I’ve been teaching Pilates since 2008. My teacher was taught by Joseph Pilates and I truly love helping you make connections to your body in this method because I know that how you are on this mat is how you do other things in life. And so I’m really excited to guide you here and help you have the most amazing day after this.
Enhance Your Pilates Exercises with Weights or Creative Alternatives
We’re gonna get started with our mat workouts with weights. You can use one or two pound weights, if you already have those. These are Naboso, the link is in the show notes below. If you don’t have lightweights, you’re gonna use water bottles or cans of soup or whatever, as long as they’re the same thing. So if they weight the same, it’s totally fine. Or you can use your imagination – all these exercises in our pilates with weights workout can be effectively performed even without the weights.
Also we have other mat classes on this channel, so make sure you check them out. There’s a beginner level one as well. So if you’re new, and you want to check that out to build your foundations, you absolutely can. But when in doubt, leave the exercise out. We are going to progress as a class to some exercises that might be out of your practice. That doesn’t mean you turn this class off when you stop, it actually means that you replace it with something else you already did, to build your foundation, to build your endurance. And remember, it’s brave and courageous to replace an exercise you can’t do yet with one you can do. That’s what we tell our members OPC every single day. So let’s get into it.

Thank you so much. You’ve made it to the end, you are incredibly awesome. And I want you to celebrate yourself. So important that you do because too often we’re like ‘I couldn’t do half these exercises’ we focus on what we can’t do. And at onlinepilatesclasses.com you have constant reminders with accountability and community to celebrate what you did do. We believe that finishing is optional. If you log in and press play, then you did it, right? If you do five minutes, it’s more than most people will give themselves. And it’s so important that you know that. We tend to be perfectionists with everything. It’s all or nothing, no pain, no gain, but the truth is, is that it’s actually about showing up and doing what it is possible. And celebrating that because that’s what creates a habit, especially in our mat workouts with weights. Remember, each small step counts, and you’ve already taken a huge one by completing this workout.”

As I mentioned in class, you can send in a video of yourself, doing an exercise to get feedback that can help you make sure that you have your feet in the right place, your hands in the right place, or that you’re working from the same place, right? It’s not easy to do this on your own, but it is more accessible when you have it on demand. And when you have a community and teachers who are there to help personalize it for you. I mean, it’s almost like going to a studio right? But for the price of on-demand.
