Group Mat Classes
Group Mat Classes are held on Thursday evenings in the Profiles Wellbeing Studio.
I teach a style of matwork pilates called Garuda, it's a beautiful flowing style that often comprises a lot of standing work enabling a fully functional workout. I've found the best part is that you really get lots of juicy movement from the spine and ribs which helps you to feel more free and gets the abdominals firing by giving them something to do while your body is moving. There is plenty of mobility work built into flowing sequences so working those muscles is balanced with keeping the joints flexible.
Classes start Thursday 3rd January finishing on Thursday 14th February - 7 weeks in total. There will be no class on Thursday 21st February, and then classes resume for 6 weeks from Thursday 4th April.
Cost £10 per class for a trial first session or if you book a block for the term, or £13 per class if you attend as a drop in.
7:00 - 7:45pm More Beginner Level Class - for those who haven't done any pilates before, or won't feel so confident in a class that flows, or have any pain issues including those who are within 1 year post-natal. This class will aim to build your strength steadily, within your capabilities and working with any challenges you have.
7:50 - 8:35pm More Progressed/Intermediate Class - for those who have some experience of pilates in any style, can move OK and are interested in getting stronger through a progressive class. If you can only manage to get to this class due to timing, please don't worry about being left behind, I will always be able to give alternatives to every exercise and give you directions to enable you to work with the whole class.
