The flex band. It’s small, versatile, and very affective. Get your flex-band goody bag when you purchase a 10 class pass during October.

Here’s some Pilates exercises and Yoga asanas to get you started. Join us for lots more creative exercises using the flex band during October.

Clam Shell

Ensure neutral alignment of the pelvis and spine to begin.

The flex band around the knees adds resistance in the Clam shell exercise. Fantastic exercise for targeting gluteus medium and maximus. Generally we focus on flexing and extending the front and back of the body. Side lying gives a stable base to work into lateral rotation of the hip. It’s also a really suitable position for pre and post natal and an essential exercise for improving pelvic stability.

Keep hips stacked and raise knee, laterally rotating at the hip joint.




For a more challenging unsupported position, hold arm at shoulder hight in front of you. Ensure you stabilise at the shoulder by keeping the shoulder blade flat against the ribcage.

 The Teaser

The Teaser can be quite a challenging exercise. the flex band here can help you flex into the pike position, but can be more challenging on the arm.


The Semaphore

The flex band is a fantastic prop to enable you to perform traditional Pilates Reformer exercises in your Matwork repertoire.

Ensure pelvis and lumbar spine are neutral throughout the exercise. Fantastic exercise for developing shoulder stability as well as targeting the triceps.

The Roll Back with Extension

A lovely sequence of movements to work core strength and stability as well as well as working trapezius, rhomboids and biceps.


Dancers Pose – Natarajasana

The flex band is a great prop to help you reach the foot in Natarajasana. Using the flex band will help you keep the pelvis neutral as you deepen into the posture by bringing the raised leg a littler closer the the hand.






Lengthening hamstrings and easing tension from the hips

Try not to overstretch. Hold at a point where you feel mild tension in the belly of the hamstring muscles

Keep pelvis and lumbar spine neutral by keeping it flat on the floor throughout.

Try not to over rotate. Keep shoulders in contact with the floor.
