Experience Joseph Pilates' original excerise routine! Made up of over 30 advanced exercises performed in sequence, the Classical Mat is considered to be the very essence of the Pilates Method. Preserving the integrity of Joseph Pilates' original work, it maintains the highly athletic and dynamic style of flowing movements.
What to expect in this workshop:
Chiara will be giving a warm up class and an overview of the original sequence. Applying the Body Control Pilates method in approaching the advanced work, exercises will be broken down into their essential components to enable participants to perform them safely. Due to the relatively short length of this workshop, emphasis will be placed on the Repertoire in its entirity, rather than on its details. Previous Pilates experience is necessary.
