Pilates is a unique movement practice that stretches and strengthens the entire body focusing on mindful movement, breath and the muscles of the core. Each class will start with 20 minutes of mat work followed by 35 minutes on Reformer. Mat work will focus on the five basic principles of STOTT Pilates and teach essential exercises that build core strength, increase flexibility and improve alignment. Reformer will add resistance training through a system of spring tension that increases strength throughout the body, challenges coordination and increases mobility of the spine and joints. The combination of Mat and Reformer creates a unique and varied exercise environment. Your highly-trained instructors will guide you to do your best in this challenging, effective, and fun workout! Class size: limited to 5. Please wear athletic attire and gripper socks (or go barefoot) and bring a water bottle.
Class is held at Studio Pilates, 573 Main Street, Winchester.
