Description: PILATES is known for it’s amazing ability to strengthen your core, improve back stability and create a long, lean, supple look to your body. Clients move through a system of classical exercises lying face down, face up, sitting and standing.
PILATES MAT is just one component of the whole system of exercises that Pilates offers. When you do Pilates on the Mat, you must support your body weight with gravity as resistance through the movements. Small apparatus such as balls, rollers, rings, and bands may be used with various mat exercises.
Levels of Pilates:
- BEGINNER | INTERMEDIATE PILATES MAT: A beginner class open to all fitness levels with a focus on alignment, form and the six Pilates principles: Concentration, Control, Centering, Precision, Breath, and Flow. Intermediate exercises added based on class progression.
- INTERMEDIATE | ADVANCED PILATES MAT: An intermediate class that includes specific advanced exercises depending on the client’s progress. A full understanding of the intermediate mat is required to take this class. Clients must first be cleared by one of our certified instructors before attending these Group Classes.
Group Class vs Private Lessons:
The goal for each Group Class session is to ensure each client gets the full benefit from their class experience. Some clients may need more individualized attention than others depending on skill level. For this reason, it is required that Beginning students complete private sessions before participating in a group class. This one-on-one attention enables us to modify the exercises to fit your body’s particular needs as you learn the exercises properly and safely.
Group classes are not permitted for clients with injuries or weakness in the core, neck and/or back.
