A pilates-inspired exercise video suitable for people who have difficulty getting down to the floor and would prefer the support of a chair.

Use a chair with flat hard back rest and a flat hard surface to sit on. The class is about 30 minutes long. 

Regular pilates practice can help improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.

These video fitness workouts have been created by InstructorLive and range from 10 to 45 minutes in duration. Please note that these videos are recorded sessions of previously live webcasts.

If you liked this class, you may want to try pilates for back pain and pilates for knee problems.

If you're recovering from an injury or have a health condition, you may want to get the all-clear from a GP before following these classes.
