Pilates High Mat
We often hear that Pilates works you from the inside out, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that this is literally true. Many of the exercises are designed to work all layers of muscle and to help clients achieve a balanced and toned overall muscular system. By stabilizing spine, hips, pelvis, shoulders, head & neck as well as strengthening the core, clients can achieve great flexibility through all of the major muscle groups, and develop that graceful yet athletic look.
Focus is placed on precise movements originating from the center or core of your body. Working from the deepest layers of muscles, which stabilize and support your spine and pelvis, resulting in a strong, flexible spine with ideal posture and alignment. Classes emphasize the foundational principals of Pilates while offering modifications and variations to suit each students individual needs.
Our studio uses professional Pilates high mats with 2″ of high density foam for extra padding under your seat & knees & a soft cotton foot strap to assist with challenging core exercises to make the class accessible for EVERY body. Also equipped with a roll-over bar to help keep your shoulders connected in challenging exercises like Jack Knife & the Roll-Over. High mats are reserved for those registered for the full 6-week session. Drop-ins welcome, however not guaranteed a high mat.
