Video 26 – 2018 Online – Pilates Beginners Video Course – Preview Sample for Review, Feedback, Comments

>> View a list of all videos. <<

Some of you know that I’m currently working on my second “Online Video Pilates Course”, a Beginners Online Pilates Course.
The idea is to enable you to learn Level 1 or Beginners Pilates exercises and movements from scratch at home or on the go, without the need of having to go to an in-person Pilates class.
.
This might be because you just live too far away from a class venue, you might work hours that clash with possible Pilates classes, you might have other family or social commitments that don’t allow you to attend a class, you might travel a lot for work, or you might just prefer to learn Pilates online for another reason.

Below a video where I explain how to do two different Beginners versions of a Pilates Single Leg Stretch, which is mainly a core/abdominal strength movement.

Everybody who sends valuable, real and honest feedback or comments in relation to audio/sound quality, video quality, lighting (is it too dark or bright etc.), understandability, possibly video structure (is there a logic to it) will go into a draw and the winner will get free access to the final version of the Online Video – Beginners Pilates course.

Anyway …. have a look at the video and let me know what you think.
Your constructive and honest feedback will enable me to improve the quality of these videos and online courses, so everybody benefits from it – it’s a win-win scenario.

Thank you – Martin

Video 25 – 5min Video with Home/Office Neck & Back Stretching and Loosening Exercises

>> View a list of all videos. <<

Check this  5-minute Trial Video with a few different neck and back stretching and loosening exercises below.

A few of my morning Pilates Class participants asked me to create a simple video that they can do at home, during the August 2018 class break.
The video will give you a few useful ideas and a routine that you can do in your own time.

Feel free to share this video with anybody who sits the whole day, or most of the day in an office, on a desk or computer needs some relaxing and stretching.
You could do those exercises also as an easy
(1) morning loosening sequence or routine,
(2) in between during the day as a work break or
(3) as mentioned above as a break from your desk or computer.

Please let me know what you think of the video, what is the sound quality like, can you see me clearly etc.?
Depending on feedback I hope to record a good few similar videos with more ideas for simple and easy to do stretches and other exercises.

And remember to share this video with someone who you think would benefit from those stretches etc..
.
It just takes 5-minutes, and you will feel so much after doing them.
.
Thanks
_ Martin

Video May 2018 – availability – Men Only Pilates Classes in South Dublin, Ireland

A new set of Mens Pilates, Core Strength and Flexibility Classes starts during the week of Monday 7th of May and Monday 14th of May 2018 in the greater South Dublin area, Dublin 14, Dublin 16 and Dublin 18.

The classes and courses run in eight-week blocks. There is generally a maximum of 8-10 participants per class, meaning the classes are rather small and this allows me to offer a good degree of individual attention. Benefit from 16 years teaching experience, I worked with hundreds of individuals of all ages mid/late teens to individuals in their 90s, busy mums, business owners, desk-bound office workers, retired people, various groups and individuals from sports like rugby, GAA, soccer, tennis, long-distance running and golf.

View the video below for class details, check my full exercise and fitness class timetable here or contact me if you have any further questions or to book a class.

“Hi Martin,
thanks for making this available, really appreciate it. Videos are at a good pace, very clear, good to have a visual check at home between classes. It is helping me anchor the exercises in my memory. Used my tablet so I could have it down on the floor beside me, easy to see as I was working. Thanks again.
