Beginner Mat–Full Body Strengthening & Stretching–1 hr 40 min–Bruce Hildebrand | Always Pilates
Class starts with hip release. Learn how to breathe correctly, find your ‘powerhouse’ muscles, and how to activate key muscles for good Pilates technique. You also learn how each part of the body works. Next mobilise your spine while standing to release neural tension. Then learn 4-point kneel exercise to improve strength and functional movements. You then strengthen your hip muscles to stabilise your pelvis and prone shoulder extension to help strengthen shoulder girdle and upper spine. 100s rhythm then creates endurance while keeping shoulder muscles activated. Inner thigh exercises to end.
