with Sarah Littleford
Pilates integrates movement, breath and muscle control into what we call “compound” exercises which utilise more than one muscle group at a time in order to develop functional control such as when you walk, garden, or go about your day. These classes tend to be more flowing and allow ease of movement with control.
At Total Therapy Studios all of our non-clinical Pilates teachers have some of the best qualifications in the industry, are very experienced and have a multi-disciplined approach to their classes. Sarah holds a classical ballet diploma and has studied in Gyrosythesis, harmonics, structural anatomy, the Franklin method, and is also a qualified massage therapist. She’s worked alongside Physiotherapists and other medical professionals to help patients with her unique therapeutic Pilates approach.
Sarah says this is a level 2 class which incorporate a larger number of compound strength and stability exercises (many muscle groups) and assume a certain ability to engage the core and position the body correctly. These help build strength and functional stability and push your levels of mobility and flexibility.
Suitable for those wanting to push to the next level and work at a faster pace than lower level classes.
Not suitable for beginners or people in pain
