Mat Pilates is the most restorative discipline I have ever encountered and these classes with Alice are no different. Alice is trained in both Mat and Reformer Pilates, she will guide us through 2 25mins classes. Mat Pilates is a Strengthening and Lengthening form of exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles – the body’s “powerhouse,” a Pilates term that refers to your abdominals, lower back muscles, pelvic floor, hips and glutes. These classes are a great option for those who are recovering from an injury but still want a low-impact exercise their body can handle. Even if you’re not taking Pilates for this reason, a mat class is perfect for those who want to try a toning class that is also gentle on the joints.
Pilates can aid in flexibility and improving posture, as stretching your body is a vital part of class. While low-impact, Pilates burns fat during and after class, as your muscles continue to shed calories long after class ends.
Join me as Alice guides us through 25mins of Bliss – twice!
