pilates for all
Pilates for All provides an opportunity for improving core and total body strength, flexibility, balance and posture while reducing overall stress and fatigue. Pilates exercises are performed in a controlled, deliberate manner with the goal of blending the power of your mind with the movements of your body. Class will consist of a warm-up focusing on alignment, exercises challenging strength and balance, and a cool-down for stretching and relaxation. All exercises will be explained and demonstrated with options for beginners as well as more advanced participants. Whether practicing yoga, sitting at your computer, walking, running, playing sports or working in the yard, the benefits of Pilates will quickly carry over into other areas of your life. So, bring an open mind and willingness to explore and in no time you will become a dedicated “hard core” Pilates student.
pilates for athletes
As athletes we focus on the next competition, the intricacies of technique, our personal record and more. We overlook the importance of maintaining proper breathing and alignment, achieving full body balance in strength and flexibility and centering the mind with the body. Performing simple movements and focusing on the principles of Pilates, we can improve performance and significantly reduce risk of injury. Increasing strength and awareness of deep, smaller muscles allows for greater control in muscle movement and stability of the joints that can often be damaged through repetitive and demanding training. Whatever your activity, whatever your level … even a single Pilates session a week can make a difference.
