If you’re rehabilitating from an injury and ready to transition back into functional fitness this is the perfect place to start. It’s also great for anyone looking to broaden their training repertoire. You will learn all the basic principles of Pilates and experience both matwork and reformer exercises. This is the first step towards improved core awareness, increased muscular strength and restored flexibility.
Experience the varied benefits of Pilates matwork in this one-hour class. It is a fantastic way to mobilise the spine, increase core strength and improve joint stability – and you’ll also build that ultimate mind-body neuromuscular connection. This class makes use of small pieces of equipment to facilitate good movement patterns or add intensity.
* You must be able to lay supine (on your back) on a mat.
Set entirely on the most commonly-used Pilates machine, the reformer, this class focuses on developing integrity through all movements. The reformers’ pre-tensioned, weighted springs provide continual feedback to the body so you can focus on mastering supreme technique. The springs can be adjusted to help target either deep stabilising muscles close to joints, or the large global mobilisers that drive power. The reformer is a great way to build body awareness as there is constant proprioceptive feedback being passed between the body and the brain.
*It is recommended to wear socks in this class
