Megan struggles with extra centimeters on the waist with one very effective exercise. The only drawback is that it needs to be done with a friend (and she obviously didn’t take Kate as a couple).

Meghan Markle has always talked a lot about a healthy lifestyle, actively touting its benefits. Before meeting the prince and getting married, the actress was fond of Pilates. As a result, she became friends with Heather Dorak, a Pilates instructor who runs a studio in Los Angeles. It is believed that after returning to the US, the Duchess of Sussex reunited with Heather and, no doubt, attends Pilates classes at her club to keep fit.
By mid-July, Harry and Meghan finally returned to active work with the United States, having had time to take a break from a visit to Britain, where they went with their two children. And when Sussex appeared before reporters in New York, many noted that, it seems, she finally returned to her former form after the birth of her son and daughter. And in the press, progress is associated with the name of Heather Dorak.

It is believed that over the years, Heather has developed a signature exercise with Megan, which they do whenever they work out together. First of all, it brings a noticeable result to the abdominal area — the very area that in the case of Sussex suffers in the first place.
Heather’s old social media posts reveal her close friendship with Megan. In January 2016, a Pilates instructor posted an image of herself and the actress posing in a “double boat pose.” The women sit on the terrace with their straight legs raised up and their soles joined together, and their hands stretched out and holding each other’s fingers. The exercise keeps the main muscles in tone and stimulates the abdominal organs. The excellent shape of Heather and Megan, depicted in leggings and sports bras, confirms the effectiveness of the “double boat pose”.
Later that year, Heather and Megan went on a trip to Ibiza with several other friends. Dorak posted a photo in which she and the actress are posing in a “double boat” again, but this time in black swimsuits and at the pool, while the edge of the sea can be seen against the background.
Ms Markle told Women’s Health Magazine: “There are so many workouts that you try once and never go back to them; Heather’s Studio is the complete opposite. You keep coming back for several reasons: firstly, your body changes immediately… give it two classes and you’ll see the difference; secondly, Heather is amazing – as an instructor, as a friend, she inspires in every way. Finally, the people in the audience are very cool, unpretentious and motivating… and this is a testament to Heather’s energy.” Heather Dorak’s Pilates classes according to her author’s methodology are described as an “innovative and aggressive” approach to fat burning and conditioning the whole body. They say that her workouts “burn up to 700 calories” at a time.
