Pilates is a mind, body, and spirit practice with benefits that include improved posture, better coordination and balance. Increase lung capacity, improve concentration and focus. Increase body awareness, stress management, and injury prevention. Mat Pilates is a great choice for all levels of Pilates practitioners because the exercises not only can build in difficulty, but every exercise can also be modified to decrease or increase the level of challenge. Practicing Mat Pilates helps build a strong, balanced body and increases flexibility. As you progress in your practice, you will notice improvements in breathing, focus, and body awareness. This open-level class welcomes all abilities from beginner to advanced.
This new form of pilates employs props such as a pilates ring, small ball, exercise band and a bar to enhance your exercise experience.
All props will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own if you have them.
