Pilates Mat – Sculpt
Pilates Sculpt works to develop deep core strength and pelvic stability, and also sculpts long, lean muscles. This class incorporates conscious breathing to train your body to move as an efficient, whole system and emphasizes alignment of the pelvis and entire spine. We use orchestrated movements to target muscles of the hip, thoracic and lumbar spine, abdominals and pelvic floor that support your daily and sport activities. Performed entirely on the mat, this class can include use of hand weights, resistance bands or other props to challenge your core and create balance and flexibility throughout, from crown-of- the-head to tip-of- the-toes!
Our classes are a great way to experience the challenge, variety and fun of the Pilates reformer. The reformer uses springs and pulleys to create both resistance and assistance to produce a strengthening and lengthening workout. Our small group classes enable instructors to pay special attention to form for each client and ensure they are practicing properly at ANY level.
