Lower body pilates workout

Lately, I’ve been adding Pilates to my workouts.

I love how it makes me feel. More flexible and soft.

I want to share with you today a short, but powerful set of movements to help you tone and shape your legs and booty (and core!)

I suggest you add this 10-Min Lower Body Pilates Workout to your routine, specially when you want to take a break from strength training or if you wish to start feeling more active, gradually.

Let’s do this!
