Matwork Pilates Classes
What are Matwork Pilates Classes?
Pilates Matwork was ‘homework’ in Joseph Pilates’ time and in the last 20 years the fitness world recognised the benefits of Pilates so classes have justifiably become very popular and have made Pilates accessible to many. Matwork classes are group classes, led by a teacher, based around the principles of Pilates and without apparatus.
Our Matwork Pilates Classes
With a maximum of 8 participants, the teacher can cater to the experienced and newcomers alike.
The aim of learning all 34 of the original exercises is the starting goal for all of our classes. We consider mat classes to be a great environment for practising whole body commitment, instead of the place to be addressing movement dysfunction, injury or chronic pain (we recommend working with the apparatus in these cases). We do offer drop-in classes, though we recommend booking in advance to guarantee your place in your chosen class.
Pilates Matwork classes are 60 minutes long and open to all. While we are always working towards the 34 original Pilates exercises the classes vary according to the teacher’s own style and particular theme or interest.
Pilates Matwork 65+
