What to Expect
Our Pilates expert Briony will take you through 3 different strength workouts each week:
Workout 1: Beginners Mat pilates session
This workout uses basic pilates principles to activate important muscles correctly and gently build a foundation of strength.
It is suitable for all fitness levels and does not require any extra equipment.
Workout 2: Home Equipment session
This workout will utilise basic equipment that you may have at home including
– Hand weights or canned food as an alternative
– Theraband or resistance bands
– Furniture such as a chair, table or bench
This class is a beginner to intermediate level as there are usually options for different fitness levels
Workout 3: Advanced mat pilates
This workout uses the concepts and movements from the beginner class but at a more complex level. It will sometimes utilise some of the equipment listed in workout 2.
Once again there will be alternatives offered so that everyone can still complete the class even if they are at a beginner level.
All three workouts are safe, low impact and simple to complete to make them easier and more enjoyable to do !
Key areas that will be targeted in the classes include:
– The Glutes
– Stability of the pelvis and lower back or “core strength”
– Posture strength
– A mixture of exercises for the arms, legs and shoulders
