Pilates - Gentle

Pilates is a great way to build up your core strength and improve flexibility to keep you healthy and active. It focuses on alignment, breathwork and core stability. All of which makes it a fantastic stress-buster! Although you can practise Pilates at any age, this online course is designed to be accessible for more mature learners, who want to stay active and independent. The intent of this course is to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness, wellbeing but also improve posture, balance and coordination. Pilates is a non-aerobic approach to safe rebalancing of the body. Posture, strength and flexibility will be improved through a series of (mainly) floor-based exercises, introduced slowly over a period of weeks and then practised and perfected over the course. Variations for the different exercises will allow you to work at a level suited to your own abilities. You will work on the core muscles to protect the spine in everyday movement and ensure the body is correctly aligned. The ‘Gentle’ course will focus more on exercises in seated and standing positions.
