Tempo Pilates tunes

As usual, our team has composed a meticulously selected playlist for our Tempo Pilates students to enjoy. How do we pick the songs, you may ask yourself? Here is a bit of insight into the motives behind our madness…

•Warming Up: Melon– Home Video

For this exercise, we chose an eclectic piece with a mid–tempo allowing a gentle pace to raise your heart rate, steady muscle toning and getting blood circulation astir.

Most importantly, our aim is to detach students from the stresses of everyday
life and submerge them into an ethereal mind-body connection that is essential for
the rest of the reformer pilates class.

•The Climax: Give Me All Your Luvin’ (feat. Nicki Minaj & M.I.A.) – Madonna

At this point of the lesson, we require music with an upbeat tempo in order to motivate students by maintaining the bouncy flow and movement – a fast pace is vital in elevating heart rates and burning calories during the execution of compound Pilates motions.
•Cool-Down: Open– Rhye

To conclude the session, heart rates must be gradually lowered to progress into Pilates stretches while still holding a core correlation. For this we use a slow-tempo number to relax and focus on alignment while challenging flexibility in a safe and controlled fashion.

So, what are you waiting for? Feel free to embark on your own musical journey at our reformer pilates classes based in East London (E8) and Covent Garden (WC2).
