Pilates Level 1 & 2
For those of you experienced in the basic matwork principles, join this class to enjoy flowing movement from one exercise to the next.
This class is multi level, so there will be options to progress or regress each exercise to suit how your body is feeling.
This Pilates class has the extra element of a dynamic flow from one exercise to another and uses equipment to add further challenge. In this class we will use our dynamic core, awaken our internal awareness and focus on a mind and body connection. The perfect way to escape the chattering mind, whilst unraveling the body and releasing any tensions.
Stretch, Release & Relax
Movement is never separate from life. In this class we will mobilise the body and work on releasing and unravelling the spine. We hold on to unnecessary tension and if this is left unaddressed, it can impact on our health. Let’s connect back with our breath, move slowly and mindfully throughout the whole body, stretching and letting go. Liberation in a confined time of our lives.
Pilates for All
Enjoy all of your favourite matwork exercises to strengthen weak areas and wonderful stretches to release tension in tight areas in the body. The session will end with a restorative relaxation.
