About the Event
Pilates is a series of movement exercises, often performed on specific equipment that are practiced through the principles of concentration, control, center, flow, precision and breath. Each lesson focuses on your physical goals and a total body experience. We use Pilates movements and equipment as well as other movement and breathing exercises to help you achieve a sense of freedom in your body. You leave feeling whole in body and spirit. In this class you will expect to move through Mat Pilates exercise while applying the ideas of breath, coordination, control and flow. We will move from the floor to standing doing Pilates exercises. You will leave feeling refreshed and embodied. You will get to explore the body you live in further. This Pilates Mat class is geared toward beginners. No experience is necessary for this class.
