Hi, I'm Monica Wilson and today I'm here with my friend Lindsey and we're going to be doing mat with magic circle. One of the things I love about Pele's is if you do it for the right reasons to strengthen your body, increase your flexibility, injury prevention, balance, longevity, all of these things. You can also get all the beautiful benefits of a great shape body, otherwise known as. We're going to have great strong buttocks, long lean legs, all these beautiful effects. So this class is going to focus on using the magic circle to give you deeper work into your mat. And then we're going to follow up with another class. So it's a two part series. You can do them individually if you like.
Just this one with the magic circle or use the next one and see if you can tap into the same muscles. Use the muscle memory to get more out of your mat work in the next class. It will be about an intermediate, advanced, very challenging and I hope you enjoy it. Should we get started? All right, so we're going to start with a [inaudible] sick. You're going to face me. Good. And Dina [inaudible] stance. Knights weight on the ball of every toe lifting in the arch side of the foot is making contact. Beautiful. Have the arms lift at shoulder height.
Good. Holding the circle between the hands. Lift the elbows up. Good. And we're gonna think of our Pilati stance, right? So from that hipbone we're going to engage those outer thighs. They're going to be circling out I barbershop polls like I like to say, lifting the back of the thigh, the hamstring and the buttock from the knee. Great.
Using those muscles to press your pelvis forward so the weight's more on the ball of the foot. And then use your powerhouse to lift your chest forward and up. It's hanging back right now, so take your chest forward a lot more. Oh wow. Yeah, that's so good. Lengthening your tailbone. Beautiful. Go ahead and cross one foot in front of the other and try to keep the length of that lower back as you lower yourself down to the mat. Good. Good.
Keep lengthening that lower back. Wonderful. Good. I'll take the circle, lift your bottom back and go ahead and lie long on the mat. We're going to start with a hundred. You're going to bend the knees into your chest. We're gonna mainly use a circle between our ankles, not much between our hands today, even though there are a lot of beautiful VR variations. With that, go ahead and lift your head up and exhale into the mat and lengthen your legs to the position that you feel your powerhouse pulling in and up and now pump your arms. Inhale, two, three, four, five. Exhale, two, three, four, five. Great job. So the ankles are not what our schoolies in the circle.
Squeezing those legs. You should feel lengthening for miles. You'll hear me say a lot. Lengthening the thigh out of those hipbones. Last one here. Inhale two, three, four, five. And exhale, pulling in and up against those legs and draw the knees in. Sit up for the roll up. We're going to place it between your inner thighs bent nice and fetal.
Be in inline with the hipbones. Hands underneath your knees. Good sitting up tall. Now round your spine as if your forehead could touch the circle. Good. And without moving that head, try to create as much space between your hipbones and those thighs. Great. Keep your hands right under those knees and pull back the waist into the mat.
And we're going to continue now going a little lower. So you're gonna press with those hips. Send them that way. Rolling through down to the base of your shoulder blades or the bottom of your bra strap. Take a breath and exhale forward. Yes. All the way until your shoulders return over your hips. And one more like that. Press pulling the waistband.
So we're learning here how to use our hips to stabilize our upper body. Taking a breath and exhaling forward. They're squeezing, they're lengthening this way, drawing it in that. Don't miss a beat there. And we're going to go down lower. Now press reaching. Cause ideally when you do the roll up, the legs don't slide back with you at the thousand feet. Go ahead and roll through the upper back, the neck and the head, and then inhale, lift the head, exhaling into the mat.
The hips are still reaching long this way. Beautiful. And do one more like that. Pressing the hips, lengthening the lower back. Thank you Lindsey. And reaching, reaching good all the way down to your head. Good. And inhale, lifting the head and exhale. Pull it in. Good. And then once your shoulders are over your hips, grab this circle. Don't change your body and squeeze the legs long and together in a plotty stance on the mat. Keeping your here. Reach your arms up. There you go.
And we're going to roll back the waistband. So here's what I want to see. Keep going. I want to see these press. I want to see them reach as if you had that magic circle. Get that waste man down on the mat. Nice. And go ahead and reach back. Since we have the circle, we're going to put it between our ankles.
Now for the roll over. So put it legs go. We're going to keep your head down, legs up, and we're going to put it between our ankles. Good. Press the arms down by your side, God. And we're going to press the circle with what those hips in a vice? Yes. Inner thighs. And draw that lower belly in. And I want those thighs to come onto your chest. Good.
They flex over here. Good. And with flex feet, roll down. Squeeze those inner thighs. Pull those eyes to your chest. Good. We're going to reverse it. So go down, lengthening, and then draw this in and go over with flexed feet. Good. Now squeeze a circle, but with relaxed fi and feel more of the outer thigh as you pull into yourself. Going down as low as you can, lengthening and then flex and over.
Good. And then squeeze with relaxed feet. And again, let's find those outer thighs and reaching. Reaching. One more time. Going down. Flex those feet. Draw in the belly. Flex treat. They were flexing. Now they're going to be soft and squeezing your good and lengthening, lengthening, lengthen. Since we have the circle, let's stretch with it. We'll lower the left leg, but use it to stretch the right. Here's your little, little nice treat.
Cross to your nose, shoulder around in, up. How long can you get to that leg for me? Can you get all the way down to your ankle? Good. And reach around, up to around up. I love how much you're holding your powerhouse. One more and let's go the other way. Reaching down around, up. Stretch out that hip.
And I want you to find your outer thighs pushing out on them as you do. Rolling like a ball. I really like this variation. Hands a little lower on your ankles. Good. So push open those knees, stretch that circle, dive your head through. Awesome. And you're going to roll back the lower back. Inhaling, open, push out, out, out. Good. And doing great in with the exhale.
We're going to do single leg stretch without it. So you're going to lift your head up, but I want to see this sharp, long leg reaching out. Let's switch. Left. Good and switch. Draw that belly. Good switch. Good. Scooping it. Yes. Into the mat. Left outer thigh, right glute member. We're strengthening our buttocks and lengthening those legs. Yes, but of course we're creating balance and stability. One more set, right. And, and now put this between your ankles for double leg stretch.
Yes. And lift the head up and switch. Try to grab up a little higher if you can. Yeah. Good. Now watch your powerhouse. Does it look like there's a band going across? You want to just to anchor it. Yeah. Good. And every time that leg goes down, it should feel the hamstring and glute. Hamstring and glute again. Stretching that hip flexor, reaching it long. Good.
Take a big breath and exhale into the mat to round up. That's let go of that tilted pelvis that we did, right? So we're going to drop our pelvis. Big breath. Exhaling up. Good. Now feel the stability of your hips pressing in advice in your inner thighs.
Draw the knees up over your hip bones. Good. Extend the legs up, up, up, turning those thigh bones out. Reach for the ceiling. Can you come? I'm sorry. Just your feet. Can you come up any hard, good. Reach the legs down, down, down, and pull them up. Let's squeeze as you go down and relax it as you come up and squeeze with those hips as you go down. Relax as you come up. One more like that. Squeeze as you go down. Relaxes. Now opposite. Relax it as you come down. Squeeze it as you come up. Relax it as you lengthen. Squeeze as you come up.
And last I make sure nothing moves in the pelvis as you come up in here and we're going to re up. That right knee went away. So we're going to keep it here and keep pulling in to lift up. Pop up. You got it. Come center last length and let me see it reached those hips long. Pull it in and hugging those knees. Sit on it for spine. Stretch forward. Nice job. All right. We don't have a magic circle here, but I want to see your, I want to see some light under that bottom as you lift up off of it. That's it.
And exhaling. Dan, Dan, Dan, straight edge and inhaling up. Okay. Taking a breath and exhaling down. Good. Lifting up off that. See now when you roll up my dear, roll up. Your lower back is great middle, but then you left out your upper back before your neck and head. Nice and exhaling down. Yes. Reaching forward. Good. Continuing to lift. Yes, yes, yes. And then rolling up. Up, up to more. Lifting off the seat. Push those heels away. Exhale.
Go ahead and bring your legs together. Okay, great. And we're going to put the circle between your ankles, open leg rocker with a circle between our ankles. So in this is a little different because every time we add a circle we squeeze. And on this one it's more for awareness of that. Our sides are working evenly, so you don't need to focus so much on pressing, but just holding that distance and keeping it center.
So before you lift the feet, I want you to feel the ball of your foot on the mat and then think of your roll up that you did in the beginning and draw that waist in and pull back your weight so that your center of gravity is a little different. That is excellent. Then use your powerhouse to lift your sternum as you. Yep, that's great. And you can hold behind your CAS or all the way up to your ankles or all the way up to your toes if you can. I might slide it up just a little bit. Good, good, excellent. And relaxing those feet. Beautiful. Can we pull back a little more? Excellent. Good. That's it.
Now I want you to focus on something straight ahead like me. Good. All right. Like my cross right here, and you're going to rock back in with the air and come right back up to here. That's it. And lengthen from the back of the thighs. Let go of those hip flexors. Beautiful and in with the air roll back and where's my cross and right there.
Now. Keep reaching those outer thighs. Keep letting go of those hip flexors and start crawling down your legs as you roll down. Yes. And bring the legs right on. Straight on up to the ceiling. You look really nice and square. Rest your arms down by your side. You're going right into corkscrew. So not from the feet. Squeeze from your seat. And I want you to think of jackknife.
One more come into beautiful reaching to the right around. Keep pressing that circle. Yes. Nice. And last time coming down. Don't let that bottom get a break. Keeps squeezing it as it goes down and up. We go and rolling down our back. But you do get a break. Now.
Sit up for SA. Yay. Opening those legs. But again, I want to see and you're going to put them right in the middle. Arms out to the side. Good. I still want to see instead of gripping, right, we're going to see some light under here as we lift up and twist to your right. Good. And now feel like you're a bottom is in a block of cement as you exhale down, down, so it's in a box. You get to sit on that left hip lift on up, twisting and the right hip stays in cement.
We're to, they're working. We're going to squeeze them together and then turn onto your belly. Good, good, good, good. And your hands are going to be under your shoulders if you were going to do neck roll, but we're going to end up doing Swan dive with the circle between our ankles. So I'm going to go ahead and put your circle between your ankles or you know what? Go ahead and show them how to do that because you're not going to have me at home unfortunately. And it takes a little bit of time.
You got it. And you can even reach back with both hands if you need it too. Great job. Good. So you're not going to be able to lay your arm, your legs down flat on the mat. They're going to go down as low as they can because you have a circle and you're going to pull your powerhouse in, right? Press the circle. Squeeze down here. We're going to come up, not Swan dive. Okay, so we're going to keep Lincoln. That is gorgeous. Keep lifting wherever you feel is comfortable for your back.
So switch the circle. Great work. Where'd you feel that Lindsey? Nice. Strong buttocks. Good. All right, let's get along. Lean waste with this too and it is really good support for your lower back. If you're there, don't let your knee go out too wide. Pull it in a little.
Excellent. So we're pressing your pubic bone down. Your pelvis feels really strong and secure on that mat and you're going to pull it in for five and hold, hold, hold and release. Try not to flex or point the foot. You're more of a soft foot and pull it in. Two, three, four, five. Release. One more time, Lindsay holding in two, three, four, five. Now keep it squeezing, but lift the knee. Lift the thigh and you're going to do five pulses. One, two. Whoa. Yeah, that's it. That's the burn for five and that's enough.
Now you're going to put it between both ankles. You thought that was tough. We're going to do double leg kick. Excellent. You're right, facial cheek. We'll go on the mat and your hands will come together as high up behind your back as you can. That looks great. Let's lengthen the legs and everyone has a little different combo, but let's see if I can get you to follow my sequence here. Okay. Get your hands up as high as he can so you're still getting that nice stretch.
Both eyes are facing. Nice. So again, strong pelvis. That's what we're looking for. Reaching long the legs, right? We're going to keep those legs straight and pressing that strong pelvis down as you lift the legs up. Now keep those thighs and ease off. Good job, good girl. And squeeze that circle to your bottom. Bending the knees. Now straighten the legs with those thighs up and lower the circle down as you lift up your head, chest powerhouse. Switch to the other side. Elbows up high to keep those legs long and straight for me. That's good.
Straight lift. And then keeping those ties up. Squeeze that circle into your bottom so it's a straight leg. Now straight leg out again with those dyes and he's good. And then lift up. Good. Okay. No bending those knees this time. Keep them straight. Lift up, pull him in, lengthen out, and then lower as you left. Good. Take your circle away.
Round your back and sit on your heels for a nice back stretch. That was excellent. If you didn't feel any of your hamstrings and glutes in your stomach work before, I'm sure you do now. So we're going to put it between our inner thighs for neck pull, starting off a little harder. Neck pull. It sometimes is thought of as a more basic neck pull, but I think it's a little harder.
Send those legs away from you. Hinge back. Take the bottom of your box with you. More. Scoop more. Scoop. Curl the rest down. One more like that in with the air. Exhaling. Beautiful. Inhale, sitting up tall. Last the hip. Action. Thank you. And going back. Take the hips, squeeze the hip. Pull back that belly against the hips. Awesome. And curl the rest down. We're going to come up one more time scooping in.
Good. But this time while you're ups, put it between your arches or the side of your foot is what I should say as your legs lengthen. So straight legs good right there. Pulling the foot back like so. Excellent. Now put your hands behind your head. Good. And pressing the circle. You want to really send it to that ocean. Okay. And you're going to pull those hip bones. Oh, that's good. Keep it going.
Draw that way since. Send those hips as soon as you touch your right back up. That's what I wanted to see. And then inhaling up. Good and back. We're going to do one more on the next one. I do want to see your head. Touch your knees, not just come towards it in with the exhale all the way to your knees all the way. Thank you. Inhale now sitting up tall from those sip phones and going back to you.
Feel your sit bones. [inaudible] pull them together. Send them that way. Draw the waist in. Rolling down. Beautiful job. I want just a few more inches behind you. So slide this way and we're going to Jack knife. Good. Put it between your ankles.
Now with your legs directly up to the ceiling in a 90 degree angle with the floor. Okay, but some take your hips a tiny bit. Great job. Good. All right, we're going to press and I want you to just lift the hips over to me and now Jeff NIFA and coming down with control. Keep the toes reaching. Keep the circle reaching to the ceiling and take the hips over. You don't need to go down on this one just to a nine degree and now very even. Okay? You're going to keep using the left outer thigh and you're going to go down, but don't lose the energy. Keep reaching for me.
Now place it between your inner thighs. Good and place your feet down close to your bottom. Good. So in regular mat we'll do shoulder bridge with one leg moving. But here I want you to find your tailbone and get it on the mat first. Let it let, that's it.
I know you need that stretch though, and that articulation. So make sure right here when you start off that your tailbone is down, that you feel your entire sacrum on the mat. Then without tilting that we love to do. Press those hips together. Press those inner thighs to squeeze a circle. Now use the inner thigh, pelvic floor and tiny lower belly to curl your tailbone towards you.
Just your tailbone to lift that waist, just your tailbone. Now you can lift your waist if you're using right where the hamstring and bottom meet, that work where you had were lying on your belly and come all the way up. And if you can even make a rainbow, because in shoulder bridge your hands are going to be underneath your hips and that stuff. Don't overdo it with your upper body and your ribs. But do it in your seat. Try to stretch through that and now give me 20 beats. One, two, press four, five, six inner thighs.
The last thing to go down. You get one more set? Is it down? Okay. Press. Good curl. Really feel where the hamstring reads the seat. Exhaling those ribs, lifting those hips up evenly. Here's what's really important. Before we start pressing on shoulder bridge, we need and leg pull up. You want to make sure these hips don't move and we're going to do 20 that they're straight across. Here we go, press two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 10 more, a little less ribs and a little more. C, little more stretched through here.
Five, four, three, two, one. Get this angle little differently. Thank you. And rolling down. So I want to see her hip bones below her hip flexors for sure. Good. Nice job. All right, let's put it between, just like you, different neck pull between the insides of your feet. We're going to do spine twist. Awesome.
Flex those toes back and arms straight out to the side. I want to see all the muscles in your arms reaching out. Do you feel your sit bones and they're pushing your heels away and engaging your inner thighs. Nothing in your lower body moves as you take a breath and then twist to the right and X Hale and inhale tall as you come center and exhale as you truest lift off your waist. Lift, lift in, inhale, center and twist and exhale. Lift up. Up, up. Thank you. In with the air and TUI [inaudible], lifting, lifting and in with the air. No movement and that circle. It's gorgeous.
[inaudible] both feet. Top one, two. I see you sending a message and it's trying. Good, but it's also hiking. So we're going to reach it. Ooh, now we have a nice waist. Good, good, good, good. So you're more advanced as is this class. So we not only want to work our legs, but we want to walk our powerhouse. We want to draw that belly in and maybe even lift the waist a little. He.
Yeah, that's what helps to stabilize those hips and get more, have our leg work. So we're going to press that circle of both legs and using our powerhouse like this. Lift those legs a little forward, a little more. [inaudible] lower them down. Just a little angle. Good. I love how you've kept this. Keep this top leg. We're going to use the top leg to press down and hold for five, four, three, two, one release and press down.
Great job. Now we're going to show me your coordination by pressing down a little bit, rocking back, not losing that circle. It's slightly pressing into the mat. Okay. You're in a precedent to the mat as the bottom leg shifts inside. Yeah, let go with the circle. With the bottom leg. It's going to shift inside and then it's going to press it down as you rock forward. The top leg bends and goes inside. Yes. Good. All right, so now both legs are really going to be actively working. Okay.
The hip height against, you're going to lengthen it out. Love it. That's the work you need. That's great. And you're going to keep rotating. Watch that knee and instead you're going to push out with the outer thighs and the bottom leg pushes down as the top leg stretches up to three, four, five and release pulling in bottom leg reaches down top one up, dude. Three, four, five and release. I think that bottom leg needs to work more circles getting lifted. Press down with that bottom leg. Press down. Two, three, four, five.
And release. We have two more of the top legs, not gonna flex. Right? And we're going to lift right here. Make that guy work. Yeah. And release. One more time. Scooping in reaching long and lift right here. Make that guy work. Two, three, love it. Best. Yes. Nice job. Okay, Ben, this top leg, put it on the outside again. Good.
Press down. Let me see this coordination a little better. This time we're going to rock back as the bottom leg slips on the outside. That looked nicer. Good. All right. Now some serious waste and leg work because in the next class we're going to be doing big scissors and all kinds of stuff, right? So we're going to press with both legs and use your left waist to help lift both legs. Hold two, three and down. Good.
Just when you thought there wasn't enough hamstring and work, you're going to lengthen your legs. You're going to revisit pressing your pelvis into the mat and scooping your belly in. Lift those thighs and knees as high and long as you can. And give me 20 beats. One, two, squeeze it. Four, five, six. Lift those legs. Lengthen on ten one, two, three. Reach them. Four, five, six, work the right leg more. Nine, 10, hold it up. Roll to your other side. Hold it up. Let up as you roll to your other side. Alright, nice job, Lindsay. All right, bring them forward by pulling your belly in and up. Okay, go ahead. Your hips are really nicely aligned on this side, so it's your left one that likes to misbehave a little on that, but there they're doing good here.
Give it a little ease. Pull your powerhouse in and up. And then stretch right here everybody. That's what we're feeling for five release and pull it in and stretch, stretch, stretch, and release. Try not to rock your upper body backwards. Your shoulder, right shoulders rocking quite a bit. There we go. And stretch it to three, four, five release.
And one more time. Reaching it a little longer. Oh yeah. Now stretch it up with this. Two, three, four, five. Yeah, good job. Now take that top leg, put it on the outside, press down a little bit, rock back, and that bottom leg is going to go on the outside. You good? Good. All right. [inaudible]. [inaudible] it's okay. Bring the feet a little more forward. I think you're doing really good. Good. Drawing that belly and make sure our hip flexor doesn't take over at all.
And both legs are gonna squeeze together. And now using the right waist, you're going to lift, lift, lift, and release. Two more. Draw the belly and lengthening out. And press M lift, lift, lift and release. I'd love for you to feel this length as you pull up and pulling in and squeezing. And we're going to pull up. Good. Hold it up.

You're going to walk your hands out into a pushup position. The heels going to come up over the ball of the foot. The ball of the foot should still be on the mat. And let's squeeze our bottom down quite a bit more. Three, two. Yes. Good. Give me a set of five pushups. Elbow straight back one.
Don't lift your hips at all. Keep them squeezing down and squeezing them forward away from me as you lift that left hand. [inaudible] where's the ah, now your feet have gone behind you. There we go. Take your left foot forward a little bit. Awesome. Go ahead. Great. Keep that energy and we're going to slowly roll back onto the ball of it. Squeeze the bottom down.
Give me one more set of five pushups down and one head up. Energy out the crown of your head. Squeeze in that seat and one more. Hold. Walk back to your feet. Lifting from your waist. Get the weight onto the heels. Good. Stay there. Grab onto your ankles and stretch. Enjoy it.
