Pure Pilates 34 Part I
Learn to perfect the fundamental level exercises that make up part I of the 34 Pilates exercises. Adaptations and modifications will be offered for each exercise for you to learn the one best suited to you and for you to use this in your Pilates practice whether it’s at home or at one of our open mat classes at Red Hot Yoga.
We will be working through each exercise individually providing options to lower or higher the intensity of each one. This workshop requires previous Pilates experience as we will not be teaching the understanding of the Pilates method, just revisiting and using the method in each exercise.
Pure Pilates 34 Part II
Learn to perfect the more complex intermediate level exercises that make up part II of the 34 Pilates exercises. Adaptations and modifications will be offered for each exercise for you to learn the one best suited to you and for you to use this in your Pilates practice whether it’s at home or at one of our level 1/2 mat classes at Red Hot Yoga.
We will be working through each exercise individually providing options to lower or higher the intensity of each one. We will be building on our existing knowledge of the fundamental exercises previously taught in part I of the workshop and throughout our open mat classes. This workshop requires at least 6 months previous Pilates experience and practice at RHY open mat classes.
Restore Your Core: Pilates Stretch
In the sedentary computer culture, bad, slouched posture is now becoming prevalent in our society.
This workshop will address the relationship between structural mobility and muscle function. Experience how to enable effective elongation of the muscle fibres and the impact this can then have on structural mobility. Learn the importance of the breath in movement and how being attentive to our breath can help release holding patterns within the soft tissue.
Releasing the soft tissue of the body naturally, leads us towards the potential for change in the mobility of the spine and the surrounding joints. We will explore how to safely extend the thoracic spine (upper back), lumbar spine (lower back) and rotation to counteract modern occupational bad postures many of us are living with.
Restore Your Core: Pilates for Sport
Happy in the gym, saddle, golf club in hand or running shoes on?
Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior the Pilates conditioning method will benefit everyone.
