Early Morning Centering: Springboard, Mat & Props - All Levels


This class is taught by:

Irina Semionova

Certified Instructor.
 
Pilates for Irina is an adventure of physical and mental discipline. Irina was introduced to Pilates by her friend (and future teacher) in 2008. This event completely changed her life direction. Since then, she has been working on improving her body movement and physical capabilities.

Growing up in Russia, Irina always actively engaged in physical exercise like swimming, figure skating, running, tennis playing. After immigrating to America Irina experimented with many different workouts but never felt at home until discovering Pilates. After five years of practicing and learning how much Pilates has to offer, Irina, with the support and encouragement of her mentor enrolled in the 2013 Balanced Body Pilates Instructor training program. After broad training she graduated in 2015 and was certified in 2016.

Irina believes that Pilates is an improvement to anyone’s life style and she hopes to share this knowledge and experience with others. She understands the practice of Pilates can be of benefit to both teacher and client. Irina believes that Pilates is a life time journey. She is also aware that with practice she and her students are prepared to face the future with confidence.
Start your day off right with this revitalizing 45 minute class.
 
This early morning Springboard, Mat & Props class will focus on identifying ideal alignment, challenging the core and fostering inner strength that can support you throughout the rest of your day. You'll come in sleepy and leave feeling energized and centered!
 
The wall mounted springboards are a great way to get a total body workout utilizing springs based resistance (which can make exercises more achievable and also more challenging, depending on the circumstance and level of the class). The springboard repertoire was originally modified from the original Cadillac exercises, but has been expanded to include familiar favorites from the Mat and Reformer, as well as a lot of exercises you can’t do anywhere else. Most Springboard classes also include some Mat and & Props repertoire for flow.
 

All Levels - Some Pilates experience strongly recommended but this class is open to all. The instructor will teach to the level of the students in the class, modifying exercises for less advanced students, and adding challenges for those that need the extra intensity in their workout. Clients with serious injuries or limitations, should first take with an Introductory Private Session and/or seek the advice of an Agile Monkey instructor before taking any group class.
