A full-body conditioning program comprised of a series of approximately 500 designed movements performed primarily on a mat. Pilates improves strength, flexibility, balance, control and muscular symmetry. The rhythmic exercises promote elongated and toned muscles, and are noted for developing abdomen, lower back and buttocks strength, and create a strong body core. This pilates mat class fuses classical principles and a more contemporary athletic approach to produce noticeable results through more challenging moves. You’ll leave feeling accomplished, energized and worked head to toe.
