Pilates Matwork classes are a great way of exercising in a group environment in a non-competitive way. Classes last an hour and will progressively advance as the term does. Matwork is the term given to non-equipment based Pilates. You can expect to move on to an Intermediate/Improvers class after completing a Beginners course once you have mastered the fundamentals and get hooked!! The more classes you attend the more benefit to you and your body.
Do I need to be supple/flexible? Definitley not.
Will I get stronger? That is definitely the plan when you attend our classes, though keep an open mind that everyone learns and changes at their own pace. So be kind to yourself and aim to work consistently with achievable goals.
Beginners – An ideal starting point for anyone who has never tried Pilates, or wants to return to Pilates after a lengthy break due to injury/illness or pregnancy. The pace is easy is and relaxed allowing you to acquaint yourself with the fundamentals of the exercise technique (as well as your own body). Go on – you just might surprise yourself ...!
'The wonders of Pilates....My whole body feels better this morning after pilates last night. My quads are still a bit tired from the 10k but I feel so much better after your class. What you have us do fits in really well with the other exercise I do.' Caroline
