Waking up can be rough on anyone, especially if your body feels stiff after a long night of little activity. When it’s hard to move you feel sluggish as you trudge to the kitchen to make the coffee. It smells good, tastes great and it’ll give you the push you need to get going. Sure, there will be the caffeine jitters and mid-morning crash, but right now you just need that push to get going.
But what if there was a better way?
Instead of caffeine, rely on any one of these Pilates Mat class selections to give you the wake-up you desire:
Instant Coffee: A simple, mild, and convenient wake-up. A perfect alternative to hitting that snooze button.
Cup of Joe: Traditional and well-balanced. This one is a gentle and un-rushed wake up for those mornings when you have a little extra time.
Caffe Latte: Steamy and smooth. An energizing wake-up that looks as beautiful as it feels.
Triple Shot: Full-bodied and bold for a quick and invigorating wake-up. Perfect for days when you’ve got to be up and at ‘em.
In each class Chris takes you through a Pilates Mat workout that will make the transition from sleep to wake a refreshing experience.
