There is a saying in the fitness industry: Straighten before strengthening! What this means is that proper form and execution of movement are first and foremost. It all starts with your core, which is the body's center of gravity and runs from the diaphragm to the pelvis. In this class, you will focus on learning how to properly engage your body as it moves through Pilates-type movements and stretches. Please bring your own floor mat (a thick-sized mat is recommended). Class is performed in bare feet or non-slip yoga socks. You may also want to bring a small neck pillow and/or a knee mat. If you are looking to improve your posture, balance, and strength, this is the class for you!
