with Beth Suart
Level 1 / 2
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.
Beth says this is a level 1/2 class which incorporate a variety of different isolated (1 muscle or group) and compound exercises but include lots of stretch and mobility exercises. They give plenty of time to explain the core principles of engagement and breathing, and include slightly more strength and conditioning exercises than level 0/1 classes.
These classes are suitable for those who require a slower class and want to learn correct technique and the older client.
Not suitable for people with acute pain or chronic mobility issues.
