Basic Pilates Mat Workout for Dancers | Kathryn Morgan

This is a 20 minute basic pilates mat workout that caters to dancers. Anyone who wants to tone and strengthen their body can benefit from these exercises. We focus on using the core for the whole workout while improving stability and length. This is a great way to achieve your body goals!

Stretching and Flexibility Routine:

I am a former ballerina with the New York City Ballet. When I was a young student, I was always looking for insights into the ballet world and how to improve my dancing as well as beauty and lifestyle tips. Now that I am a professional, it is my turn to share.

On my channel I make ballet, beauty, and lifestyle videos for everyone of all ages. My goal is help dancers improve and achieve their dreams as well as open up the ballet world to non dancers. You will see many different kinds of how-to videos here including makeup, hair, ballet workouts and exercises, Q and A sessions, lifestyle advice, and DIY on this channel. I hope you find all of my videos helpful!
