CLASSICAL PILATES MAT
“Change happens through movement and movement heals.” ~Joseph Pilates
Pilates is truly the ultimate mind-body exercise to strengthen, streamline and realign the body! This low-impact mat class is based on the teachings, techniques and variations of Joseph Pilates and utilizes Pilates exercises to enhance outcomes associated with weak abdominals and muscular imbalances. In addition to overuse injuries, arthritis, postural disorders, malalignment issues, and low back pain. This functional, yet effective core mat practice helps to lengthen tight muscles, which enhances your yoga practice, improves running and recovery and workouts of all types; as well as daily life activities. Studies on Pilates show that this practice also challenges the mind and improves cognitive functions, while strengthening mental and physical awareness through the emphasis of breath and body and how they move together. Open to all levels, no prior experience necessary.
