Improve your Strength & Flexibility
This class is a series of exercises to increase strength, tone and flexibility in the body. Following the traditional Mat Pilates exercises developed by Joseph Pilates from his machine programme for the Reformer, Cadillac, etc, these movements will work all the major joints and muscle groups, as well as the more subtle ones you didn’t know you had! The session begins with opening stretches and then we move into the exercises themselves where modifications are given so everyone is able to participate at their level. We finish the class with twists and stretches focussed on the areas of the body we have used. Instructions for the Pilates Breath are given throughout.
You will need a mat, blanket or towel to lie on.
Wear comfortable clothing that doesn’t restrict your movement e.g. a t-shirt and leggings/tracksuit bottoms.
The 6 Pilates Principles
Vicky will highlight The 6 Pilates Principles throughout the session to focus on aspects of each exercise and improve your overall awareness of your body’s movements. This will help increase strength, flexibility and can help to avoid injury and ease aches and pains.
