Pilates is a beginners class that provides the mind,body and sole with a complete workout from head to toe using predominantly your own body weight with minimal equipment. It is a safe and effective way to exercise and all exercises are accessible to all. Using the principles of Pilates these classes will help to improve your strength, endurance, core stability and flexibility whilst promoting bodily awareness and sequential control.
Each class begins by practising good posture and alignment , lateral breathing and core engagement. Each exercise will be led by its own pattern of breathing to ensure optimum engagement of the stabilising muscles. Core engagement plays and essential role in the control and movement of the body. In Pilates each exercise begins focusing the attention on the core and then allowing the movement to flow outwards to the limbs to complete the exercise with precision.
In this beginners class, each exercise given can be modified and all exercises are practicable to everyone.
