Mat Pilates is a training practice that is done on a mat, meaning, no reformer is used. Mat classes focus on a series of movements incorporating strength, flexibility and mobility. The exercises are progressive and safe, allowing you to work at your own pace with an emphasis on technique. It is suitable for all levels and easily scaled for beginners.
As a result of Mat Pilates classes you will learn to create a deeper connection to you breath and learn how the breath affects how we engage the abdominals and how we move our bodies. You will also learn how to properly engage muscles without relying on using weights to make that connection.
At Raise the Bar SP we practice the Stott Pilates Method. Stott Pilates is world renowned for its high level training and its scientific based approach to Joseph Pilates classical works. All coaches at RTB are trained through Stott Pilates to ensure you are getting quality instruction!
For Mat Pilates you only need a mat and yourself but if you have small handweights or therabands there will be options available. This class is 45 minutes long.
