Get Your Heart Pumping with this Bone-Safe Warm-Up

I'm definitely doing more Pilates than ever before, but I'm also sitting a lot more than usual, probably because I try to limit how much I go out and about these days. Because of this, I've incorporated a standing warm-up in every virtual Pilates class I teach. Lasting between 5 and 10 minutes, these warm-ups include stretches for the major muscle groups and dynamic movement to get the heart pumping.
