PILATES: Class Levels
Whether you are completely new to Pilates or have several years experience, I recommend that you attend a taster session (either a 1:1 or dedicated group taster session). Taster sessions are extremely valuable as they allow me to check which class is suitable for you and discuss any particular issues or concerns you may have. A taster session will also give you chance to find out more about the history of Pilates and Body Control Pilates ® and, of course, give you a taste of the exercises.
Beginner classes are for those who are new to Pilates or who want a gentle class focusing on the basic principles, improving posture, flexibility and mobility. You will improve your core strength and body awareness.
Improver classes are for those who have grasped good basic technique and want to be challenged with tougher exercises. At this point the focus is on increasing core strength, stamina and, at the same time, much more complex patterns of movement. These classes will help you relieve stress and leave you feeling energised.
Intermediate level classes are even more challenging, working towards the 36 ‘classic’ original exercises that were designed by Joseph Pilates for execution on the mat. Modifications will be given where necessary. The aim is for movement to be flowing and dynamic so the body becomes evenly strengthened and toned.
The original matwork class in its purest form, in the correct sequence with a fast tempo and with flowing transitions. This is a tough workout and the ultimate Pilates challenge.
