PILATES

Pilates is a total body workout that focuses on initiating every movement from the center of your body and then spreads it to the limbs. This discipline originally called Contrology from its founder and our mentor Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), has been helping dancers, boxers, sports people, celebrities and countless others who have experienced this method correctly taught.

  • Pilates Weekly - Saturday (Stretchy Mat)

    Level 2-3 - Pace: Moderate
    Time to breathe, slow down the pace and stretch. Stretching is restorative and nice to cool down after a busy week. Big extensions are demonstrated in the video, but they are not encouraged if out of reach. The splits and the high bridge should be executed only if you u...

    Level 3 - Pace: moderate
    In this mat we’ll hit the floor only a couple of times to roll on the spine! In every other exercise we’ll be standing or against a wall. It’s interesting how the exercises will change very much, and the challenge will shift from what we are used to! Perfect postural work...

  • Push Up handles #1 - 5 min

    Push Up handles #1
    Level: 2 - Pace: Moderate
    The push up handles allow your body to work towards getting stronger in an inclined plane. This makes it easier for whoever has a hard time executing the push up. The grip is more gentle for the wrists and that's another reason that makes the handles a...

  • Red Carpet Mat - 29 min

    Level 2 - Pace: Fast
    This is a little “untraditional” Pilates mat: we’ll work deep on the powerhouse and the posterior chain. The opening of the chest will always be a main focus when we are talking “red carpet”. But also glutes, abs and posterior chain play a very important role when we are work...

    Demanding, intense, challenging, strong but feels amazing!
    After the challenge of maintaining a “real” axial extension by gluing our backs to the wall almost the whole time you’ll feel how powerful it is to hold the same position when away from the wall. It’s a boost to p...
