Intermediate Pilates

The intermediate class starts to introduce the Classical Mat Work series of the Pilates method. It focuses a lot more on the bigger, stronger and more dynamic moves from the Mat Work, therefore good understanding of the Pilates principlesbasic alignment, core stability and movement control is advised before starting this class (though not essential).

This class is for those who love the all over strength work of Pilates. It is not advised for anyone who suffers with any back, neck or shoulder injuries.

About the Intermediate Class

The intermediate class starts to introduce the more advanced and dynamic exercises of the Classical Mat Work series. It still works with the primary principles of alignment, core stability and movement control aspects, though also focuses on strength, stamina and active flexibility.

It is a fun, challenging and effective all round class!

The long term benefits of Pilates will only be achieved if you commit to the work. It takes a while for the body to adapt and muscle memory to evolve, so consistency is key!
