Pilates with the Thera Band

This Pilates workout utilizes the Thera Band, which you can find just about anywhere. I ordered mine from Amazon. The Thera Bands come in different colors, and each color is a different amount of resistance. I love using these in both Yoga and Pilates workouts because they give you some added resistance that helps to strengthen the area of the body you are focusing on.

You can also use these to mimic some of the exercises you would do on the reformer, such as footwork and chest expansion (which we do in this video). Thera bands are easy to travel with as well, and you can use them anywhere and anytime you can sneak in a workout on your mat. You can even adjust the amount of resistance you get from the band; the closer your hands are to the middle of the band, the more resistance you’ll feel and the closer your hands are to the end of the band, you will have less resistance to work with.

I hope you enjoy this video!
