5. Cool down

Like yoga, Pilates practice is big on a cool down to complete all workouts.

Find a comfortable position lying down on your mat, face up with your arms to your sides.

Bring your knees to your chest and slowly rock back and forth to loosen the lower back.

You can also incorporate some side stretches, bringing your legs to one side and your arms to the opposite side.3

Use this time to stretch any part of your body that might feel tight or need extra attention at that moment.
