Group Mat Sessions Mondays

50 minute mat-work sessions for beginners and improvers. Mondays from 8th January 2024.

  • 8 British pounds
  • Church of our Saviour, Chelmer Village

Service Description

Sessions are every Monday at 10am from Monday 8th January 2024. I will take you step by step through each exercise providing detailed demonstrations for you to try out. Throughout the session I will explain in detail the technicalities for each exercise and their purpose, focusing on correct postural alignment. We start with a gentle warm up section involving all types of movement of the spine gently waking up the muscles and joints. The middle section is all matwork based exercises to gently tone and work different muscle groups in the lower and upper body. The final section is a cool down session of gentle stretches and balance practise. I also like to include a moderate amount of meditation to help wind down the mind and body effectively. During a class, I might utilise equipment such as Pilates balls, TheraBands, and toning circles to enhance resistance through the movement. This is optional can choose to do all of the exercises without equipment as well. Using equipment will benefit those who perhaps want to work a little harder throughout the session. I will guide you with some helpful Pilates “cues” to help move more efficiently and correctly within each exercise. I give two or three alternatives including a modified version and a more challenging one. Each exercise can be easily adaptable to suit your needs. I shall also guide you through some breathing patterns which better connects mind and body, stamina and fluidity through each movement. I incorporate some useful co-ordination patterns to help stimulate the brain to enhance a good function of the nervous system.
