Spice up your Pilates or Barre playlist!

Friday, February 7, 2014

Happy Friday!

It's below freezing here in Austin, so of course everything shut down again. This means, I got to sleep in until 7:30 AM! Pure bliss! Luckily, we opened back up in time for my 11 AM Barre class. Everyone else seemed ready to get their workout on as well, because we had a packed house. I loved it. I feel so blessed to get to teach such amazing and fun students every day. :)

Speaking of Barre, I wanted to share an article with you I wrote for MyGroupFit.com on music selection. Many people think that all Pilates classes have to be performed to classical music, or no music at all, and that is simply not true. In this article, I share how I use music to energize my class, create flow, and keep the class synchronized.


If you teach Pilates, Barre, or really any group exercise class, check it out and let me know what you think! Need some great songs to get you started? Check out my Pilates and Barre playlists below. You can always find my most up-to-date playlists on my playlists page.

If you are a group exercise instructor, do you spend a lot of time on your music for class?

As a participant in group exercise classes, how much does music make a difference in your experience?

It's time to get a few things done around the house before the weekend officially begins. This weekend will be our only weekend in Austin this month so we have to make the most of it! What are you guys up to this weekend?

In health,

  1. Music is crucial! I agree! And inLOVE with this playlist and will be stealing

  2. Music is such a great motivator when it comes to pretty much any exercise I do. I mostly go for walks to get my exercise, and when I have the right playlist I can walk and walk and walk without feeling tired. Where as if I don't have any music, I'm ready to head home after 15 to 20 minutes. I'm totally stealing a few songs from your playlist. :)
