Mat Pilates

Mat Pilates for Downtown Employees

A total body conditioning exercise that combines flexibility and strength development, Pilates is method of controlled movements that look and feel like a workout. The practice of Pilates focuses on alignment and functionality of the human body. Its goal is to create a strong core to help with balance, coordination, flexibility and strength. This is a Mat Pilates class, so there will not be any equipment used, it is taught as a progression, each week, new exercises will be added, growing more intense and challenging as the class moves along. This is a mind/body class, it works with our body but our mind as well, promotes mindfulness in our lifestyle and other physical activities.
