Energizing Morning Pilates Routine

Do you ever find yourself dragging in the morning? Like your bed is just too warm and cozy to get out of and there just isn’t enough coffee in the world? 
I think we all feel that way sometimes. 

I certainly felt that way in the days of having newborns and being fully sleep deprived. But even now that we all sleep through the night (more or less), some days are just hard to get going. 

To help us all add a little pep to our step, a brand new Energizing Morning Pilates routine was just uploaded to The Balanced Life’s YouTube channel.

Next time you’re feeling a little sluggish, try this powerful combo to boost your energy and start your day off on the right foot:

  1. Drink a big glass of water (bonus points: add some fresh squeezed lemon and sip through a straw)
  2. Complete this quick & energizing morning Pilates routine
  3. Write down 5 things that you’re grateful for. (bonus points: send a text to someone you love and tell them why you’re grateful for them.)

Keep taking it one day at a time and remember, all of us here at The Balanced Life are in your corner and cheering you on.

    This is great, but I cannot get on my knees to do these exercises. I damaged my knees years ago in an auto accident. the same on I broke my hand in, so I have trouble supporting my weight on my hands. I need exercises that don’t need me on my hands and knees.

      Hi Stephanie! Have you checked out the workouts in your Workout Library? If you search for “standing” in the search bar, you’ll find a few great standing workout options! ❤️

  2. I use to.do pilates before a tramotic brain injury which effects my walking and balance
    Any suggestions on exercises to restore my balance?

      Hi Mary! Pilates in general is great for building core strength, which in turn can help with balance. If you search for “balance” in your Workout Library, you’ll also find some workout options specifically geared toward improving balance. ?

      Hi Diana! It depends – most women will want to begin modifying exercises around 13-15 weeks pregnant. Because everyone is so different, we recommend checking with your health care provider first to make sure you’re cleared to do Pilates – including any exercises you should/should not do. For the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, we actually have a curated schedule of workouts available in our app (under the “more” section). You can also find prenatal-friendly workouts in the Workout Library by selecting the “prenatal-friendly” filter. ?

      Hi Shakeera. We focus on anti-inflammatory eating focusing on whole, nourishing foods, so don’t have much to say on the keto diet. 🙂

  5. This has been a life saver. Mornings have always been a struggle especially with the early morning wake ups from my 2yr old.
    Easy to follow and always feel great after doing this routine.
