ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS CLASS IN DECEMBER WILL GO TO FIRE RELIEF CHARITIES! WORKOUT & GIVE BACK!
This class includes fundamental Pilates exercises on the Springboard, Mat and using props. Great for beginners or experienced practitioners. Pilates Mat is the foundation for the entire methodology, which aims to create a balance of strength and flexibility in the body. The foundation of the Pilates Mat repertoire builds from fundamental exercises that help you to learn the underlying concepts and movement principles. You will learn things like how to do a proper upper abdominal curl without straining your neck, and how to stabilize your pelvis so that you can protect your back while working out.
Props are often incorporated into classes to add fun, release work, balance challenges or refinement of movement patterns. Props may include rollers, balls, therabands, ultra fit circles and more.
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).
Beginning - no experience required. Pilates Principles and beginning level exercises will be the focus. A great place to start for all students new to Pilates, and it will still be a workout!
