Pilates 101 -The Foundation

The foundation of every Stott Pilates class lies in the 5 Basic Principles. This 55-minute mat class we will explore how these basic principles can enhance your workout and improve your posture. This will be a slow-paced class to help connect your mind and body. We will teach you how to engage your core muscles so you can not only improve your strength, but also the endurance of these muscles we rely on for support. Once your body and mind embrace these principles, they will become part of every movement you make. Your posture will improve, and minor aches and pains will fade away.

This class was created for the beginner, however, as any experienced Pilates lover knows, going back to basics helps improve your experience. A foundation class can be particularly challenging. You will get out of this class what you put into it!

Materials needed:

Wear easy to move in workout clothes, comfort is key. Have a mat or soft surface to work on (towel on carpet works nicely). Enough room for your arm to circle when laying on your back.
