Pilates Mat Work
Joseph Pilates founded Pilates over 80 years ago. He was at the forefront of explaining imbalance theories within the body and developed a series of 34 original mat based exercises.
Over the last 8 decades Pilates has evolved into an exercise regime designed to correct muscle imbalance by promoting core stability, flexibility, postural awareness and endurance. Pilates is a gentle but physical workout that will teach you how to become fully aware of your body, your posture and your movement patterns.
Pilates will improve your strength, muscle tone and leave you feeling relaxed with a sense of wellbeing. Routine in Pilates will allow you to recognise incorrect movement patterns, isolate them and correct them. This makes the discipline of Pilates practice invaluable for injury prevention as well as for rehabilitation.
Ideal for clients of all ages and abilities, including those with minor injuries or movement rehabilitation. The Pilates principles will be taught and modifications for exercises will be offered. Clients will be taught how to work within their own body’s capabilities.
Ideal for clients who understand the Pilates principles and are injury free. This class increases the challenge by focusing on flowing movement to build stamina and ensure that every muscle of the body is strengthened and stretched using intermediate and advanced Pilates repertoire and choreography.
