Proper breathing is essential, and helps you execute movements with maximum power and efficiency. Last but not least, learning to breathe properly can reduce stress.”

Pilates is great because you can do it on your living room floor while you’re distracted from that sweet burn by reality TV. You don’t need to be in a gym to reap the fat-melting benefits of pilates – so try these moves at home. You’ll notice a difference and eventually, a sculpted and lean body, as well as increased flexibility.

1. Hundred Pump
Lie on your back on the floor, and raise straight legs off the ground at a 45 degree angle.
Brace your core, lift your shoulder blades off the ground, and do small but intense pumps with your hands straight by your side. Tuck your knees into your chest and then return to 45 degrees, repeating. Gets some cardio in there as well!

2. Pilates Curl
Lie facing up in a crunch position, but instead of crunching, slowly curl the chin towards the chest and bring the shoulders completely off the floor. Hold for one breath, then lower back down slowly. To engage the abs correctly, lift from the breastbone, so you don’t crunch your neck and stain instead of tone.
