The Pilates "Contrology" method consists of an extensive range of exercises done both with and without equipment. The exercises are designed to flow from one to the next with energy and controlled breathing.
As Pilates gains popularity the exercises are increasingly generalized for easier training in large groups while, at the same time, the most advanced exercises are shown on social media --- but not the methodology that teaches your body how to achieve such exquisite results.
This program is designed to help you move past the generic Pilates moves including in general fitness. It is detailed but organized in quick and easy to understand lessons.
Pilates is considered "mindful fitness" because there are mindful principles built into the technique. You will learn what these are and how the mindful practice on the mat translates to better equilibrium in your daily life.
Pilates instructors come from many backgrounds but many have dance or athletic training prior to becoming teachers. From them you will learn athletic discipline and mental focus, as well as precise movement coaching.
These programs will launch in 2021 - contact us for more info!
