Mat work is done on the mat in a variety of positions:

Prone (lying on the stomach)mat3

 

 

 

 

 

Side lyingmat4

The advantage of the various positions is the ability to apply gravity in different ways in order to develop both strength and flexibility.

During class each person is encouraged to work at his/her own ability level. Modifications are also given as needed to accommodate individual injuries or other limitations.

Use of “props” at times such as therapy balls, elastic banding, and foam rolls can add a playful quality to class and also enhance the workout in specific ways.

As with the equipment work, the mat exercises include attention to detail and address all of the 6 Pilates principles:
Breathe, Precision, Control, Concentration, Flow, Centering

In mat class, you work hard and have fun in an environment that is both physically beautiful and emotionally safe.
