Have you been advised to start Pilates by a health professional or friend? Worried that you will not know what to do or how to do it? Then this short workshop is ideal for you.

Starting into an existing Pilates class can be daunting and with lots of new terms and positions so in this workshop I will explain all about Pilates, why we do it and how we do it. This will give you the confidence and knowledge to go and join any Pilates class as a beginner.

Topics covered will include:

• What is neutral and imprinted spine
• How we breathe & intra-abdominal pressure

We will cover some Pilates moves such as:

• Clam
• Table top
• Shoulder Bridge
• Single leg circles
• Back extensions
• Cat to Cow
• Spinal twists
• Threading the needle
• Seated rotation
• Half Roll back

We will also discuss “Precision” and when to progress or regress a move. “Concentration” a important element and founding principle. Finishing the afternoon with a guided relaxation.

The classes are aimed at mainstream population that have the usual grumps and groans in their bodies, if you feel there is anything in particular that I need to know about your health and well being prior to the start please email me back. All information provided will be kept confidential.
