We practice Pilates in socks or barefoot and wear loose, comfortable exercise clothing. Please bring a water bottle to keep hydrated.
Classes run in blocks of 6 weeks.
For the initial session our Pilates instructor will complete a health questionnaire with you and talk about what you wish to gain from the session and possible subsequent sessions.
The first session will include teaching you how to set up your posture and core, warm up and mobilise your joints and spine, work on your balance, a short cardio work out with weights, and then move down to the mat for floor exercises.
Pilates mat training is a body-weight, total body conditioning program with a long list of core- centered exercises, sequenced together to elevate your mind, body, spirit and athletic ability.
The session will finish with stretching and a cool down.
For clients wishing to book further sessions our Pilates Instructor will develop a tailored program to suit your needs, which you will continue to work through at follow up sessions.
All necessary equipment for the session will be provided by Medineeds Health & Wellness Studio.
