The Basics of Mat PilatesAugust 9, 2022 at 11:00 am - 12:00 PM
Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by German physical trainer Joseph Pilates, who practiced the full-body fitness regime well into his 80s and coined the phrase “Pilates is the exercise for a lifetime.” In this program led by Classical Pilates Instructor Meghan Juras, you’ll learn the basics of Mat Pilates as Joseph developed it, including modifications for limitations and injuries. You’ll slow down and work on your form while focusing on the six principles of Pilates: Control, Concentration, Centering, Precision, Flow, and Breath.
Special Instructions: Attendees should bring a yoga or exercise mat, wear comfortable clothing and bring their own bottles of water.
