Pilates Plus - An Introduction

Pilates Plus will help change your movement patterns, correct posture and increase core strength. The class will begin with a variety of standing balance exercises, then progress to Pilates floor exercises using chi balls, foam rollers, bands & hand weights. Complete your workout with a series of gentle stretches to allow both the mind & body to feel totally relaxed. Pilates exercise consists of low impact movements to improve flexibility, muscular strength and postural alignment. Pilates develops CORE strength by enhancing the deep muscles of the back, abdomen and pelvic floor. Weight bearing exercises build shorter more bulky muscles, while Pilates elongates and strengthens improving the muscle elasticity and joint mobility. Pilates is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
