THE CLASSICAL MAT: an Introduction Workshop

with Chiara Favaretti  – Master Trainer Body Control Pilates

Sunday TBA 3.00pm – 4.15pm  £17.00 To book and Pay

Experience Joseph Pilates’ original exercise routine! Made up of over 30 advanced exercises performed in sequence, the Classical Mat is considered to be the very essence of the Pilates Method. Preserving the integrity of Joseph Pilates’ original work, it maintains the highly athletic and dynamic style of flowing movements.    What to expect in this workshop: Chiara will be giving a warm up class and an overview of the original sequence. Applying the Body Control Pilates method in approaching the advanced work, exercises will be broken down into their essential components to enable participants to perform them safely. Due to the short length of the workshop, only an extract of the Repertoire will be taught in details, serving as example and Introduction to our coming up Classical Matwork Course (starting November 4th 10.10am). Previous Pilates experience is necessary.

 

PILATES WITH MYOFASCIAL REBALANCING

With Katherine Pentecost – Master Trainer Body Control Pilates

Saturday 18th November 2pm – 4pm £27.50 Fully booked

A workshop based on myofascial training, which will be integrated with pilates matwork exercises. We will begin the session playing between basic mobility exercises and using spiky ball self massage techniques to help release and rehydrate the connective tissues in the body, with particular focus around the hips and spine. Then we’ll build up to some challenging, full body movement sequences that will develop strength and flexibility across all the myofascial meridians. It will be a dynamic, energising practice to promote resilience within the body’s structures.

(Not suitable for those with no pilates experience or those who aren’t comfortable in four-point kneeling. All others welcome and modifications can be made for those with small injuries).
