Pilates Tower Exercises

Hi, I’m Lesley Logan, co-founder of OnlinePilatesClasses.com™. And today I have a 50-minute Tower workout for you. It’s going to work your entire body, we’re going to focus on legs, arms, and of course, your core. You may know I have a Cadillac, but I promise you, I’m only going to do things that one can do on a Tower. So if you’re on a Tower and you’re worried that you don’t have a Cadillac, don’t worry, I’m only going to do the Tower stuff. That’s how we do it at OnlinePilatesClasses.com™ as well. If you haven’t yet checked out our blog library, make sure you do so you never miss any of our posts we have on any of the equipment, plus some amazing informational videos that really help educate you on what Pilates is. And we do a lot of myth-busting too.

Welcome to OnlinePilatesClasses.com™. The most supportive Pilates-loving community across the globe. Enjoy new weekly classes from our amazing teachers. Download the OnlinePilatesClasses.com™ app today.

Alright, so I want to get us into this workout real quickly. Something to note aside from that it is a Tower workout is that if you have a slider bar that you’re working with, I’ve paired a couple of these exercises up. So we’re not going from back and forth from arm to leg springs. I work with some heavier springs. So you’ll want to work with some heavier leg springs and a heavier arm spring. If you don’t have those things, put it in the comments below. I’m happy to talk to you about where you can get those things for the equipment that you have.

Let’s get started. But one more thing. When in doubt, leave it out. If there’s anything that does not work for your body, I want you to replace it with something that does. This is a workout that’s designed to really meet you where you are. And that’s how I love to do it OnlinePilatesClasses.com™. I really do believe it’s brave and courageous to replace an exercise you can’t do yet with one you can do. So I’ll give you some suggestions in the tutorials with some of the more difficult exercises. But please feel free to ask questions in the comments below.

Follow this exercise list:

It’s about being in practice

I love, love, love to help you layer up these exercises and progress your practice, surprise yourself and see what is possible in your body. Hello, this is really incredible practice, that layers everything and it’s not about being perfect. It’s about being in practice. And I hope this whole workout, we got to get curious together. And the more questions you have, the better because it tells me you’re not going through the motions. You’re bringing your mind to your body. And that’s the most important thing.

Okay, if you are on a Cadillac, and you would like to hang, by all means, please do that. If you are on a Tower, go ahead and like find a way to stand on all four corners of your feet and just notice how much taller and stronger you are.

SUCH A TEASE

ONLINE MAT & REFORMER PILATES CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Teaser is probably one of the most photographed exercises in Pilates. Which makes people think it's a "peak pose." But, it's anything but! It's simply another layer to your Pilates practice. This week we will acknowledge how each exercise contributes to your ability to do Teaser (someday) and then how Teaser teaches you where to get curious in your practice.

On the Mat we will use light weights for one round of Teaser as they can be helpful for those still adding into their practice.
No props on the Reformer.

See you in class,

xx~LL

MAT EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Your awesome self, light weights and a Mat!

UP, UP, & AWAY

ONLINE MAT, REFORMER, CADILLAC & WUNDA CHAIR PILATES CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

We are all going to feel like Super Humans after this month!!

Whenever I’m in a hard exercise (for me) where I’m holding myself up with my arms and reaching my legs away I picture myself with super human strength!!! I can do ANYTHING! It makes me smile and helps me stay STRONG.

This month our exercise is Up Stretch and when you think about it - reaching your legs away and staying strong over the carriage may feel a lot like flying!

We’ll be focusing on stabilizing our strong cores while staying equally balanced in our arms and legs. We are giving you some amazing building blocks by merging strength and stretch in all directions. You are going to get a little bit of everything that you can use to connect to your Up Stretch (and even your Roll Up and Knee Stretches Off).

Chair: Please have a foam roller and a balance pad available. We are going to challenge your balance safely.

GATHER ROUND

Online Mat & Reformer Pilates Class Descriptions:

We gather good things in circles…friends, flowers, pie! So let’s get our circles on! In this week’s Mat and Reformer classes we’ll be focusing on how the size and shape of circular work changes how we feel an exercise. We’ll even be adding some circular movements along the way! You won’t need any extra props and please, have your box for the Reformer class.

See you in class,
Tami

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT

Online Mat & Reformer Pilates Class Descriptions:

This week we will focus on all things Rowing! How do the other exercises help our rowing series and how does rowing influence the others! Finding the arm/back connection throughout the class is how we will Row Row Row Our Boat to the finish line!

    STAND BY ME

    Online Mat & Reformer Pilates Class Descriptions:

    The key to longevity is being able to get down to the ground and up again with as little assistance as possible. In this weeks class we are going to focus on how to stand in your feet no matter where they are in space.

    On the Mat we will have a playful ending that Joseph Pilates would do!

    The Reformer we’ll end challenging ourselves standing on our carriage. (Options to do the exercises off the Reformer too!)

    No props needed.

    See ya in class,

    LOOK MA, NO HANDS!

    Online Mat, Reformer, Cadillac & Wunda Chair Pilates Class Descriptions:

    We’re going to focus on the muscles that help us get up/down to a chair, toilet, in/out of a car, and to the ground without the use of our hands to help.

    As we age, we can lose strength, flexibility, mobility in these leg and core muscles which results in us using our arms and hands to get up and down.

    Let’s keep these bodies as young as we can by practicing getting up and down with only our legs, our center, and our strong back.

    Reformer: No props needed
    Cadillac/Tower: Reformer box
    Mat: Theraband
    Chair: No props needed

    See ya in class,

    xx-LL 💋

    HANG 10

    ONLINE MAT, REFORMER, CADILLAC & WUNDA CHAIR PILATES CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

    Grip strength as well as upper body strength plays an important role in so many different exercises throughout the mat and all apparatus. Our grip can influence the connection from our wrists - to our arms - to our back. And building strength in our chest and upper back can help us connect more to our center in every exercise.

    All month long we’ll explore the feeling, the strength, and the position of our hands and upper body to see how our exercises change with a little extra focus. We’ll also play with ways to gain more strength and awareness in our chest and upper back to create even more connections to the exercises.

    Props:
    Chair - short pole* and a foam roller for balance
    *A thicker pole or roll down bar size might feel nice, but no worries you’ll find your connections no matter what you have on hand!
    Mat: a pole
    Reformer: No props needed
    Cadillac: No props needed

    See ya in class,
    xx-LL 💋

    I LOVE ROCK & ROLL UP

    Online Mat & Reformer Pilates Class Descriptions:

    Finding some love for Roll Up and Open Leg Rocker isn't easy! But, these two exercises unlock the potential for so many other exercises. And what we don't like we often need. So, let's dive into what we need to rock our Roll Ups and Open leg Rockers and see how that changes the rest of our practice in the meantime.

    Mat: Magic Circle, Pole or Theraband
    Reformer: have your shortbox pole near by
