Mat Pilates at Clarity

Developed by German-born Joseph Pilates during the early part of the 20th century, the Pilates method of total body conditioning is a holistic approach to health, with the ultimate goal of complete coordination of body, mind & spirit. Pilates uses a system of stretching & strengthening exercises designed to lengthen the spine, correct muscular imbalances & establish efficient movement patterns which then carry into everyday life. Each exercise initiates from the centre – our ‘core’ – & flows outward to the extremities. Emphasis is on precise movement, of performing each exercise with proper technique & control, & on using breath to guide the movement.

 

Our classes cost $20 per mat pilates class or discounts are available using our multiple class pass option.

Mat Pilates with Steph Stack

Thursdays @ 10:00am

 

This is a mat class welcoming all levels of experience. The focus is on flow and form, layering efficient movement to target and tone multiple areas of the body. Classes will give you the chance to become aware of your body’s strengths and limitations, and take the time to positively develop both. Modifications for exercises are given to ensure you can challenge your body safely and adequately no matter what your level of Pilates experience or fitness is. We may utilize small apparatus to support and/or challenge the exercises further, or just your body and the mat! You will learn to strengthen, lengthen, and stabilise your body in a way that seamlessly integrates into functional and efficient movement both inside and outside of the Pilates classroom. Plus you’ll also have a bit of fun and get that sweet muscle burn too!

 

 

Focus: form, flow, tonicity.

 

Suitable for: Beginner to intermediate level students with no acute injuries or chronic conditions best managed under clinical supervision.

Each class begins with awareness & centring, moves through foundational exercises & into more advanced repertoire, & concludes with stretching & relaxation. You will feel like you’ve worked out, but in a mindful & intelligent way.
