Nathalie Clough is the founder and owner of Nathalie Clough Pilates, a boutique Pilates studio based in London. Nathalie is a renowned Pilates and movement expert, who discovered Pilates as a form of rehabilitation following an incident that left her with a slipped disc, aged 15.
It was the infamous Pilates guru and Body Control Founder, Gordon Thomson, who introduced her to the powerful effects of strength and flexibility training, consequently igniting a passion to learn more about the human body and to build her proficiency in Pilates. She qualified as a Pilates Instructor and graduated from Loughborough University, receiving a BSc (Hons) in Sports and Exercise Science.
We have partnered with Nathalie to bring you three Pilates videos that you can follow along with from the comfort of your home. As we are all spending a lot more time working from home, we thought this would be the perfect time to bring you some exercises that will help to improve your posture and strengthen your core.
Nathalie tested out our eco-friendly activewear, crafted from Econyl which is a recycled Nylon or polyamide made from discarded resources of plastic ocean waste, fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpets and industrial waste materials that would otherwise go to landfills.
The Hundred: ‘the perfect daily exercise to build up and maintain core strength. Add it to your routine, before a run or just in the morning before work.’
Shave: ‘the best exercise to help improve that working from home slump. It opens up the chest and relieves tension in the neck too.’
The Half Roll-Back: ‘to improve mobility in the spine and encourage flexibility in it. This is great when you feel tight and locked in the lower back and need some relief.’
