Walking Pilates is a form of moderate aerobic exercise that is good for people of all ages and fitness levels— and best of all, it can be done in small spaces.
It combines the STOTT PILATES® Biomechanical Principles of good posture, form and alignment with low-impact aerobics and standing Pilates exercises. You can use small hand or ankle weights to increase the intensity.
It calls upon the mind-body focus that is integral to Pilates, but is often overlooked during gym or treadmill sessions when you’re not paying attention to your heartbeat or footfalls, says Master Instructor Trainer PJ O’Clair.
“Walking Pilates is about getting people to tap in to that mind-body connection to get the most out of their workout,” she says.
