Pilates is an incredibly accessible way to improve strength in core muscles for better postural alignment, balance and flexibility. This is all pulled together with an emphasis on breathing for efficiency which is where the allusive mind/body connection takes place!
We work on a mat - standing, sitting, on our backs, on our fronts and all fours, and if a certain positions or exercises are unachievable to the individual then modifications/adaptations are made - meaning that we are always working with the individual in front of us.
To start the practice can feel hard as we undo unhelpful movement patterns but soon you'll start move better, walk better and feel better in mind.
Classes are in groups of no more than 12 people. I teach mostly a contemporary style in my classes which I find works for my members and allows for a little more creativity but always stays close to the Pilates principles.
Classes are designed to be fun..which is why we keep coming back!
