It’s March, and that means we’ve been joining in the online #MarchMatness celebration of the classical Pilates Mat Exercises. At BASI, we often say the Mat Work is the Crown Jewel of Pilates. So, by way of encouraging your mat workouts, we thought you might enjoy having a copy and paste list of the classical Pilates mat exercises in the order Joseph Pilates presents them in his book Return to Life Through Contrology.
Find videos of these exercises as well as many more at BASI Pilates on YouTube .
