This last few weeks it has been great to get back in the studio and do some filming (new home workouts coming soon!), but this post was inspired by a recent Skype chat with Glenn Withers (creator of the APPI pilates method) who asked me what my ultimate favourite pilates exercises were!

I meant to post this a few weeks back for a client who was going on a ski trip and I thought this would be a perfect preparation for her, but then life got busy with work, being away with work, and then trying to catch up now that I am home!
