Juices and Pilates

Next week kicks us off to a start with two fantastic juices to look forward to after your pilates class – The Morning coffee and The Joseph – packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that make for a great liver cleanse and a citrus based juice that will give your metabolism a jump-start.

The four workshops this week will focus on a few fundamentals of Pilates – Breathing, Concentration, Centring and Alignment.

Whilst breathing is the essence of life itself it is also a movement process and has great bearing on the efficiency of each movement performed.  Learning how to breath more effectively within movement helps both mind and body to relax, recharge and focus.  Don’t get me wrong though this class is not all about lying on the mat breathing we will be challenging this movement with some hard exercises!

In the lower limbs and upper body classes we will be focusing on mobilising and strengthening your hips, knees and ankles and opening, stretching and mobilising your upper body. In order to do this efficiently we have to look at alignment and precision of movement.  Correct alignment at the start of and throughout the movement is absolutely essential.  By correctly aligning the body and bringing the joints and soft tissue into their natural neutral zones, sound recruitment patterns are encouraged and the joints remain healthy.

In the spinal mobilisation class we will focus on centring by maintaining support and control of the body as movement takes place.  It does so by encouraging the recruitment of deep core muscles that help to control and stabilise movement.  All pilates movement stems from a strong centre and from this centre we can challenge the range of movement of the joints including your spine.

Pilates goes outside for the summer

Come and join us outside for the Summer Pilates Workshops being held in Chatillon.

The classes are all based on different aspects of Pilates from breathing and relaxation to strengthening your core muscles and re-balancing your body. Each of the workshops will be between 45-60 minutes and they will be repeated at least twice during the summer so if you cant make one date hopefully you will be around for a different one.

A glass of juice will be provided at the end of each class.
