Beginner Mat–Exercises for Muscle and Nerve Release, Arthritis–25min–Tania Huddart | Always Pilates
Do you have stiff muscles or suffer occasional nerve pain? Need exercises for arthritis? Release your joints, muscles and nerves in this Pilates class. Great to do before starting your day—the Pilates exercises can even be done in bed!
The class starts by focusing on deep breathing. You then release your sciatic nerve, and do ankle circles, and lower back and shoulder rotational movements. Next, you release your neck muscles.
You then do a side-lying exercise series that includes breathing over the pillow, rotation though the thoracic spine, decompressing the spinal column, and hip strengthening.
