Classical Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates and is a core/abdominal centered exercise. Originally called "Contrology," Pilates teaches you to use your arms, legs and entire body from a place of strength: your core! It also strengthens alignment, stability, and balance. It's not only abdominal workout; it's a full body exercise.
Pilates mat classes are performed on a yoga or Pilates mat where the instructor guides practitioners through a progression of exercises that warm the body and lungs, mobilize the spine and joints, and the strengthen the core and body. Appropriate for all body-types and ages. No experience required.
