Join Jordana Martin in a series of Pilates-inspired movements designed to mobilise bodies that might be feeling sore or stiff from extended periods sitting, possibly at a workstation during a pandemic.
Including options to move your neck, shoulders, spine and hips through various ranges of motion, these exercises can be done as a full body session or chunked down into “movement snacks” by body part to enjoy throughout the day.
No not suitable for work (NSFW) movements here, everything can be done either seated or standing, so all you need is your chair and your body.
In 2011 Jordana accidentally stumbled across a reformer Pilates class. Discovering that class kicked off a journey to finding a new movement mindset and becoming more than a little obsessed with pain science.
While exercise is often associated with aesthetic goals, its impact on mental health and performance cannot be understated. Beyond that, prescribed well, it is the most effective tool we have for treating persistent pain.
Today, Jordana has completed a Certificate 4 in Pilates Mat work and reformer, a Diploma of Clinical Pilates and is a qualified personal trainer.
Describing herself as coming from the “human movement optimist” school, Jordana wants people to feel empowered in their bodies, move without fear, in every direction and often. Pilates is a great way to do this.
Jordana teaches group mat and reformer and is available for 1:1 Pilates sessions across the full suite of Pilates apparatus for fitness, fun or injury rehabilitation.
