Pilates mat classes offer a variety of functional movements and controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the body. They have a classical feel with a focus on core and pelvic stability, spine and joint mobility and strengthening exercises that will improve posture, muscle tone and body alignment. Mat classes incorporate the small apparatus; balls, bands, magic circle, foam rollers and hand weights which will assist and challenge the body.
The Springboard Class
The springboard is a wall mounted resistance machine that provides an invigorating full body workout. These classes take your Pilates Matwork to a new level. The use of arm and leg springs both intensify and assist the exercises. With very small classes, providing more attention to the individual, these classes offer a chance to really understand and improve your technique.
Previous Pilates experience is a bonus but not obligatory. If you have trouble rolling up and/or you want longer leaner arm and leg muscles, then these classes are for you!
Bone mass density reduces as we age and can lead to osteoporosis related fractures of vulnerable sites, such as the spine, hips, wrist, ribs and ankles. Our Bone Health class builds on the Pilates principles by using additional weight-bearing and strength training exercises to help preserve bone mass density.
The classes will focus on strengthening the postural muscles around vulnerable sites, such as the spinal extensors and gluteals and will also provide exercises to improve balance and to target the pelvic floor.
