4. Try Pilates Level 1 with Eyes Free Fitness!

For this routine, you will need a padded surface like a yoga mat. This helps with alignment and protects your joints. You will also need a chair or pillows for props. Creating strength in our core body enables our entire body to function as it should. Pilates is done slowly and precisely. It tones and relaxes. Best of all Pilates helps us walk tall and feel confident.
