Our sessions are based on the original 34 Pilates mat work exercises but with modifications to suit all levels- we start by finding a stable base and then layer in options working with precision and control.
A typical class starts with a standing preparation phase- we get the body loosened off and then go down to the mat- we work lying on our backs, fronts, sides, in all 4’s and kneeling- there are lots of options for anyone who can’t work in a particular positon for whatever reason.
We also add in extra stretching for those problem areas such as hamstrings (back of the legs) and hip flexors (front of the hip), necks and shoulders.
We include mobility work for our major joints particularly the spinal column working in all planes of motion to ensure our bodies move well.
There is of course lots of core and abdominal work (this includes pelvic floor too).
It is mixed ability group so beginners you would stay with the lower levels and get used to the control and movement of the exercises before progressing onto the higher levels as they get stronger.
Your instructor will come around and help with gentle hands-on correction if needed (and if you are happy with it!).
