Workshop Saturday 25th November 11am - 1pm
St. Margarets House, £20
Fresh. Whole. Varied. All words you might associate with a healthy food diet, but they also apply to healthy movement. So if your daily movement diet involved walking, running, squatting, climbing, swimming, carrying loads, swinging, fighting, always facing the unpredictable and centred around finding your next meal, Pilates was probably not so essential! Although I’m sure Fred would have loved a Spine Curl…
To achieve and maintain your full movement potential, what you do outside your weekly Pilates class - your daily habits - are fundamental. For example, sitting on the ground in different positions, a natural human thing to do, may have become uncomfortable and difficult if it is no longer one of your habits. This is where Pilates can help.
This 2 hour workshop will explore exercises that enable you to gain the stability, control, strength, awareness and flexibility to move more fully, in lots of different, and new ways. We will release and stretch areas of tension that might be inhibiting full range of movement. Alongside some Pilates favourites, expect the unexpected as we put our Pilates to functional practice with movements that are fun, sometimes challenging and very different to your usual class. (Making flints not compulsory!) This workshop is suitable for all levels.
