A large proportion of the aches and pains, lack of flexibility, stress and tiredness that we experience are actually due to our everyday habits of sitting, standing, moving and living in the modern world. With AT-Pilates you gradually learn to use your body more effectively and find a renewed sense of ease and calm.
1) To improve posture, balance and coordination
2) To develop strength, stability and flexibility
3) To enable you to release unhelpful physical tension and relax
What happens in a class?
These gentle Pilates-based exercise classes integrate Modern Pilates exercises with the principles of the Alexander Technique with an emphasis on slow, controlled movement with awareness and precision. We explore the body’s full range of movement from lying on the floor to standing and bending. The aim is to stabilise our core and mobilise our joints to develop natural postural alignment, core strength and fluidity of movement. Stretches and relaxation are included. You are encouraged to work safely within your own limits and alternative exercises can be offered if needed.
