PILATES: Core Cardio

with Pauline Gardner

Saturdays 9:15 - 10:15am

Core Pilates is the ultimate mind-body exercise for anyone who wants to improve posture, flexibility, and balance, enhancing both physical stamina and well-being without bulked-up results. 

 

This upbeat, total body workout focuses on the Core (abdominal and back muscles.) We will warm-up with happy music. Stretching, to reduce tension and increase range of motion, is interwoven with the moderately aerobic mat, standing, and sitting series. 

 

Our class will practice the classic Pilates method, created by Joseph H Pilates, sometimes using stability balls and/or 2# toning balls. Participants will experience a program of Pilates exercises that can be done anywhere without machines. All fitness levels are welcome. 

 

Pilates is practiced on a mat with bare feet, ballet slippers, or yoga socks with safety soles.
