Come to a fun and exciting low impact aerobics class where you work out at your own pace. Relieve stress, improve cardio, tone, and make new friends.
Pilates is the Western and modern mind-boby movement exercise method related to the Eastern and ancient tradition of yoga. Pilates emphasizes spinal health and teaches rolling/stacking movement of the spine. It promotes core muscle stability aiding greatly in the prevention of back injuries and each pilates workout provides full-range motion exercises to build full mobility of the joints. In a pilates workout, you get to hold a pose in the setup of an excercise for a few seconds and then you move in a flow for a few repetitions.
Please bring a thick exercise/yoga mat for adequate cushioning of the spine or other tender points.
Some individuals may need other supporting props; I will assess the need during the first class.
