Hi, Tracey Mallett here. How are we today? I hope you're feeling fantastic. I'm feeling great. I wanna give you this fun workout that really is about lengthening and defining the body.

Of course, we mixing it up, because that's what the whole program's about. So for this you'll need a box, obviously a reformer and a lovely TheraBand. So here I have this TheraBand here, a green TheraBand medium resistance. We're gonna be using this today. So a lot of stretching, lengthening, and toning is gonna go on today.

So, put your band down to start with. I'm just gonna put it down on the box here. All right, we're gonna get down onto your reformer here. We're just gonna take your right leg in front. I just want you to go into like a figure four stretch and just breech over in that stretch.

Just stretch out through your hips and everything like that. That's it, your hips. And then come back, let's switch to do this side. And then hips. Really open up through the hips and drop that knee down as much as you can.

If you want, you can put your hand up and lift up and press that knee out. Awesome. All right, let's come back to here. Now, we're gonna start with some leg work. So you're gonna play.

So I'm gonna have two reds and a blue or you could have three reds. We're gonna work those legs. So make sure your headrest is up. We're gonna roll down, place the feet at the edge right onto your bar here. Feet hit with the part and we're just gonna press out and in, make sure your shoulders are not jammed against the headrest, your shoulder rest.

All right, we're gonna inhale, exhale, and push away. And push away. So be mindful that we're keeping that neutral spine tap on down is anchored into the mat and you just relaxing, pressing out and in, nice deep breaths, nice inhaling and exhaling as we extend out. Lovely with them. Lovely cadence.

As to four, and three, and two. and one. And come back, let's take the heels where the toes are to where the heels were, and press out and in. There we're on that light releve, ankle joint staying completely still, feet are hit with the part, focused on the hamstrings pulling back. All right, nice and easy.

Let's do five more like that. Five, exhale four, exhale three, and two, and one more, hold it here. Let's start to walk through the feet, pressing the heels down, and four, and three, and two, and one. Lift up, bend your knees, come into your V position, press out and in and out and in. Heels connected together, scooping out those abs.

I love the breathing, exhaling out and inhale and feeling that rhythm of the reformer, you're going forwards and back in that beautiful rhythm. Let's do one more. I want you to hold it all the way out. Hold it here and just flex and rise. There we go.

Are you stretching out those perennials? Down and up for four, and three, and two, and one. And then lower down. Heels, nice and wide, exhale, push out and in, try and relax those toes a little harder now. Press out and in, (exhales deeply).

Breathe, (inhales and exhales deeply). And let's do four more like this, exhale four, and three, and two, and one. And come back, replaced the heels with the toes and push away. Keep the ankle joint still. There we go.

Nice to warm up the legs, you remember the legs, they got the largest amounts of muscles in your lower body, your biggest muscle. So we get them warm, it really warms the whole of the body up. All right, let's do five more, little bit more. Five, and four, and three, and two. Hold it here, that's flex and rise, flex and rise.

Working through the feet, articulating those feet. Let's five more, five, four, three, two, and one more, hold it there, bend in the knees and coming back. Draw in the legs together in a chair position, inhale, take the knees towards the right side, exhale, bring it back to center. Inhale over to the left and center. To the right, try and keep those knees together, bring it back to center over to the other side, and then come back to center.

Extend those legs, wrap the hands around, hold onto the shoulder rests here, inhale over, exhale back to center, (inhales deeply) inhale over. Find your obliques, exhale, center, inhale over, using those obliques to pull back to center, inhale over. And now we do a little corkscrew. We're gonna go over to the right, to the center, and then to the left. So you're rocking around that tailbone to the right, and then to the left.

Your breath is inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale and exhale. One more, inhale and exhale. Hold it there, wrap the hands around, lift your head, neck and shoulders off the floor and just gentle pull here in that stretch, release, lift up a little bit higher. And then again, a little pull and then back. Let's do one more for that beautiful stretch, exhale, pull back here, and then all the way back and draw up the knees down and back.

From here, we're gonna turn to the side. We're gonna take it down to one red spring. One red, come back, roll down, take hold of those straps from behind. And we're gonna lift up, find your back first, draw the knees in and we're gonna inhale and reach in the arms and legs go out, inhale and come back. Exhale, reaching out, remember you keeping your weight pressed into your lovely loops here and connecting to your back and in, exhale, drawing those abs in.

Now this time, I want you to hold it out here, hold to when you toes out, abdominal openings, arms and legs in that nice kind of like a jumping jack. Snow angel, (exhales heavily). Inhale out, exhale in. Four more. Four, (exhales heavily).

Three, (exhales heavily). Two, (exhales heavily). One,(exhales heavily). Draw the knees in, rolling back, placing the feet down. Drop the right, little strap, bring the right leg in, find that connection with the hamstring, and then lengthen the other leg all the way out.

We go down, developpe, kick. Down, developpe, kick. Remember this is about lengthen and define. So you're lengthening those legs, developpe and kick. Split, bend that knee, kick.

Split, bend that knee and kick, two more. Split, bend that knee and kick. You got last time, one more. And kick, grab, hold to that leg, pull as you stretch, release back into scissors. Just scissors and scissor and scissor and scissor.

Keep the pelvis still. And four, and three, and two, and one more. Drop that foot down. Back into that stretch. Now open up your ribs here, draw those abs, down abs into the spine as much as you can, bend the knee, pull, pull, pull, pull pull.

That has that little extra stretch as you draw the carriage in, try and keep that leg straight. It's gonna start to shake a little bit. You could see my leg is shaking. I'm stretching out those hamstrings, and lovely. Take it away, place it back, switch to the other side.

Leg goes up. Find that hamstring connection. There we go. Then you lengthen that leg out. So we developpe, kick and back.

Developpe, kick and back. Elongation of that leg, and elongation, and back (inhales and exhales deeply). Feels really lovely just to move those legs. Active flexibility is something that we have to do continually to keep our bodies functioning as best as we can. The best version of ourself, right?

Two more, that's all that we can ask for last time and then going to your splits, those little scissors. Pressing down with that hamstring. There we go, keep the pelvis as still as you can. Four, and three, and two, and one. Bring the opposite leg in and stretch.

Feel that stretch. Woo, woo. Hamstring, hamstrings, hamstring. And release, take that leg down, bring it back up. Now, hold that position there, now draw the carriage towards the stopper.

The pelvis is gonna slightly tilt 'cause of the hamstrings. Try and keep that leg straight as you can and pull, the key is to keeping that leg as straight as you can. Yeah, and it's gonna start to shake, for five, for four, hold it. Three, two and one, beautiful. And come all the way back down.

Put that straps down, perfect. Let's turned to our side, we're gonna sit up. We're gonna take it to one blue spring and we're gonna come into this like little V, Z position so to say, like a Z position here, all right? Lift up. So from here, we're gonna lift, pick up, and we're gonna lift the hand up, so the elbows in line with the shoulder.

From here, you're gonna place the hand to the corner of the back of the reformer and you're just gonna press out and in. So it's kind of going over your head, right? Just going over your head. Now we're gonna add the hips. Hips come up and down.

Hips come up and down. So you get that beautiful line, beautiful extension through the front part of your body, through the abs as you reach and back. Exhale, reach. Four more. And four, keep breathing, pull the scapula down.

(Exhales deeply) one more, (exhales deeply) and come back. Grab it and then rotate. So now we're going into your obliques as we rotate. And rotate and breathe there, follow you gaze. Your gaze is following your hands.

As it following your hands. Four, rotate around. Three, rotate around. Two, rotate, and one, rotate. Beautiful.

Bring it down, let's switch to the other side. So we're gonna turn in your Z position here. Pick up, put hands right behind you here, elbow. And let's just reach over, and over. Keep the scapula pull down and you're going over towards your bar.

Now let's try and see if we can lift up and back, lift up and back, lift up, and lift. So good. Lift through that frontal part of your body. (exhales heavily) Two more. (exhales heavily) Oh, one more.

(exhales heavily) And then back, nice work. Grab hold of your strap, now rotate around. (Tracey inhales deeply) Exhale and inhale. Rotate in. Follow your hands, so we can get that full rotation to work into those obliques.

Okay, got those obliques working. (Tracey exhales deeply) So good to get that lovely rotation through the torso. (Tracey exhales deeply) Couple more. (Tracey exhales deeply) One more time. (Tracey exhales deeply) And then back, beautiful.

Put your lovely strap down. We're gonna get up. And then from here, I want you to take your bar. You're gonna bring your bar down, all the way down. Make sure your box is at the end of your reformer.

Let's take it to one red spring. And if you've got your band, you're gonna pick up your band here. And we're gonna take your right leg forwards, but place the band underneath that right leg. Before we start, make sure the band is equal. And we're just gonna put our hands either side.

Now, just so your back heel is off. So you're in that lunge position here. So find that lunge position, and then you're gonna lift all the way up. Now, choke the band up. Your thumbs are gonna lift up and all we're going to do is reach forwards and back.

Reach forwards and back. There we go and back. Reach forwards and back. Reach. So keeping that leg, your back legs still and you're reaching up and down.

There we go, let's do four more Four, three, two, and one. Hold it here, take your hands forwards, reach into that stretch. So there just split there, hold it there. Hold that stretch. Now from here, we're going to bend the knee, pick up your strap, rotate and look back.

Holding onto that strap and looking back in that stretch. Beautiful. And then come back slowly, bring it back. And let's switch the legs. Come all the way back, pick up your band.

(Tracey exhales deeply) Step forwards, wrap that band under the instep. Put the leg forwards. Before you do anything, put your hands down onto the reformer, lift the back heel off, get yourself into a lunge position. Feel that hip flexor stretch, feel safe. And then once we're in that position then we can come up holding your band here.

All right, so you're in that nice lunge, we're gonna reach that leg forwards and back. Working that hamstring and see if we can add those arms. Those shoulder raises. Forwards and back. (Tracey exhales deeply) Focus on keeping the same height.

In other words, you're not dipping up and down. You'll stay in one height. You've got a cup of water on top of your head and you don't want it to spill all over your body unless you're super hot (chuckles). All right, let's do four more. Four, three, two, one more, hold it there.

Come all the way down. All right, now let's just stretch. Reach out into that splits, go as far as you can get your hips square, make sure you're in that lovely split. Awesome. Now bring your knee back in so it's bent right.

Now, I want you to rotate, grab your band, rotate and look up. Hold that stretch. We all forget that flexibility's super important. So maybe for you mixing it up is flexibility. 'Cause all of us need to do a lot more than what we actually do.

And then come all the way back, beautiful. Bring it back, back, back, back. Come down and let's get yourself into a nice downward dog. Just take your band. Just put the band away to the side for the time being and hold that stretch.

You in that lovely downward dog position. Now step forward just a little bit. Now you on one red spring or if that's a little heavy, you can bring it down to a blue spring, if you want a little bit more core work. I'm taking it down to a blue, all right? So from here, we're gonna come up onto a releve, walk the hands forwards, and come into a plank position here.

Send in your hips up, back up into your downward dog, press your heels down into the box. Releve, come back into your plank position. Exhale back, flex, inhale, plank. Slow and controlled. Not always the easiest.

Sometimes it's harder to slowly do the moves and not really focus on momentum using every single body muscle in your body to push. One more. Hold it here, hold. From here, we're gonna rotate. See if we can rotate and had that lovely rotation and then back, and then rotation, try and keep that carriage still.

Come back to your center, hold it here, pull back into your downward dog. Walk back, walk your hands back. Enjoy that amazing stretch. From here, inhale, reach out. Exhale, resist and curl.

Inhale, reach out. Exhale, resist and curl. Need to make it little bit more challenging, bring your right knee to the center, developpe that leg up, bend that knee. Now open that hip, inhale out, exhale round up. And inhale looking out, exhale round up.

Inhale looking out, exhale round up, one more time. (Tracey inhales deeply) And inhale out, exhale, round up. Beautiful. Draw the knee in. Switch with the other side, scoop out those abs.

Open up your hip, there as your hip opening there. Gorgeous, is by your biceps (inhales). Inhale, look out, exhale, scoop out using your hips. Inhale, drop your scapula down, and using your abs to pull the carriage back in. Inhale, lengthen out, exhale, drawing those abs and beautiful resisting that carriage.

Just do a couple more 'cause it feels so good. (Tracey exhales deeply) One more. Inhale out and then exhale. Rolling in. Draw the abs in round, round, round, and then slowly rolling yourself all the way back up.

Okay, step off, step up. Let's pick up your band again. Now we're gonna go still keeping on one blue spring, your lowest spring. We're gonna step onto the carriage. So you're gonna step onto the outside first, and put the other foot in the middle of your carriage here.

So you're gonna be slightly turned out. We're gonna start with doubling your band up from here and we're gonna go in that lovely rotation, back, plie. Rotation, center, plie. Rotation, center, plie. Rotate back to your center and then you lean the little plie.

Hold it there. Externally rotate it. Grab it with the opposite hand, pull. Resist that hamstring, resist it. Now, look forwards.

Gorgeous, hold that stretch. See it's good to mix things up. That's why you always have to mix up your workouts, otherwise your body just gets used to it. Mixing it up, keeps your body fresh, keeps your mind alert. Keeps your body supple, sculpted, defined.

And basically it keeps you doing it even more (chuckles). And release, bring it down. Stretch it out, beautiful work guys. Roll all the way up. And let's take it forwards.

Rolling down through the spine. Rolling down. Slowly, rolling all the way up. Let's do one more time. So never be fooled by thinking a slow class is gonna be easy.

Don't ever be fooled. Slow, controlled movements is challenging. That's why your heart rate is up (chuckles). Awesome work you guys. I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did.

Great way to have strength, flexibility, and of course your heart rate is up too. You're moving, you're continuously moving from one move to the other. Awesome work guys, I hope you truly enjoyed that. Come back and workout with me again. It's a pleasure to work out with you here on Pilates Anytime.
