New to Classical Pilates?
Feeling apprehensive or a little intimidated about trying Pilates? Many people feel that way initially, but don’t let it stop you from coming! No matter your fitness background Joseph Pilates designed his exercises to be modified to the ability of the student.
Whether you are in a private session or a small group class, you will be guided through the classical Pilates exercises with meticulous attention to form and precision. As a result, you will develop strength and flexibility in a safe and careful way. If you are a beginner, your instructor will make sure you feel comfortable at your own level. You will be amazed at the progress you’ll make!
Pilates is not restricted to specific body parts. Pilates exercises focus on your core and trunk, but that doesn’t just mean your abs. Although Pilates is specifically defined as exercise for the core or abdominal muscles, it is important that clients know that ‘the core’ includes the entire trunk, which is the Abdominal muscles, the hips, the inner and outer thighs, and the back. So expect a workout that works your entire body.
