5 Pilates Exercises That’ll Help Relieve Your Joint Aches and Pains

One of my favourite things about doing Pilates at home in Winter is that I can literally peel out of bed, put comfy clothes on and roll out my mat. No one wants to get up at 5 a.m. to exercise outside in the in freezing conditions, and it’s not just a mental thing, it’s physical.

According to Peaches Pilates Founder, Tori Clapham, the cooler months can wreak havoc on your joints. “It’s the middle of winter and it’s freezing cold. For those who suffer from joint pains, this often feels a lot worse in winter and it’s often an excuse not to work out.”

“Whilst motivation for getting to the gym or your Pilates class may be harder to muster (we feel your pain), this workout will show you why it is essential,” says Tori.

Tori has pulled together this sequence of exercises that are very low impact and will help ease the pain that’s keeping you away from the studio.
