Online Pilates lessons

Underneath you will find descriptions and examples of all our online pilates lessons. You can book your lessons in our schedule.
The prices of the online pilates lessons can be found here.
During our online classes we use two-way-video meaning we can see you as well during the class and we can see and correct how you execute the exercises and movements. Our virtual classes definitely also have the personal guidance and coaching that you are used to from the Bodyvita team!

Roller Combo

A dynamic class where we mix Pilates and myofascial release. We will use the roller to challenge our balance, improve core control and enjoy a much-deserved muscular relaxation. (Pilates – All levels)
What you will need: a foam roller (90cm long at least)

Small ball

you want to work your core and work on your balance? This class is for you. Using the soft pilates ball we will challenge our body to stay in balance, by connecting all our limbs to our core. We’ll challenge your balance both standing and laying down (yes that’s possible!). More advanced movers will receive specific variations to make sure everyone is challenged! 
Exercises will be set medium pace to keep movement precise, but still challenging for the core (without forgetting the rest of our body!). 
Precision and coordination are a key for me, so you’ll get individual correction to help you progress. 
What you will need: mat, small ball (22-26cm)

Full body workout

Do you want to get your heart rate up but can’t jump (unhappy neighbours, lack of space, or simply because of an old injury)? Then this work out is for you! 
In this faster pace class, we’ll work all our big muscle groups including our core, glutes, legs, ankles and arms. Your heart rate will go up without a doubt! Your balance will be challenged too as we will work standing for part of our workout and work on trickier floor to standing up combination. As always personalized advices will be given to help you progress. 
This class will use hands weight on a regular basis (between 1 and 2kg are the best)
What you will need: mat, hand weights (1, 1.5 or 2kg depending on what intensity you want to work with)

Gentle stretch

For the early birds who need to open up before the day starts. During this morning stretching class, we’ll work on gentle stretches that can safely be performed before our day. We will get our body moving, releasing tension from bad sleeping position as well as open up our bodies to get prepared for our working day.
A regular cushion might be needed for certain poses.
What you will need: mat

 

Rock & Roller

Most of us know the Roller as a way of massaging our tight spots. In this class we will partly use the Foam roller to help release tension but also to help strengthen, shape, stabilize and challenge the rest of our body. Preferably we will use a 90cm roller, and sometimes other small props like resistant bands. And not to forget that some classes might incorporate many versions of the mat repertoire rolling exercises.
If you don’t have a roller for your first class don’t fret you can use a ball or pillow. 
What you will need: a mat, a roller (90cm long)

 

Full Body Stretching

This class is designed to get the muscles warmed up and moving and then deeply stretch and lengthen helping muscles recover and grow evenly.  With increased flexibility in the body and spine, the body can move in alignment and with efficiency.  Using a dynaband to get an even deeper stretch, this class is suitable for all levels and is a beneficial addition to any training regime.
What you will need: a mat, a dynaband (towel)

Classic Mat Class

The lesson will give you an insight into the origins of the most authentic form of pilates, which was meant by Joseph Pilates at the beginning of the last century. In this original method there is a sequence of work, designed to move the body intelligently through a full range of movements, in all directions. It is a fluid, dynamic, controlled work, a continuous flow.
I guide you through this classical sequence, integrated with the knowledge of the contemporary pilates method, which includes biomechanics and the modern understanding of the body to make the movements safer and more functional.
This lesson will be taught in Dutch
What you will need: a mat
