“If at 30, your spine is stiff and immobile, you are old; if at 90 your spine is supple and strong, you are young.” - Joseph H. Pilates.
This class will use the Pilates Method plus scientific core conditioning to teach you to use your body so you can do all the things you love more efficiently and effectively. It will be specifically geared towards balancing your gym workouts and modern life. You will gain strength, stability, flexibility, balance, coordination, concentration, control and fluidity. Through breath we will move better. It can help stave off back niggles but if you are suffering any acute injuries or pain please ensure you have a movement assessment prior to beginning. The session will be a workout, not rehabilitation. The movements will be scaled to meet various levels of ability. You will learn modernized versions of Joseph Pilates’ traditional matwork series which can be done anywhere, anytime.
