Celebrity Pilates trainer and founder of Natural Pilates, Laura Wilson, tells Elite Daily your core is ‘the powerhouse’ in Pilates. It covers not just your abs, but your spine and glutes as well.

Wilson says that depending on how you feel about getting sand in your hair, you could even do this full Pilates routine at the beach.
