Low impact, full body movement for coordination and awareness.
In our mat pilates classes, we care about how you move, not just what you move.
Based on the teachings of Joseph H. Pilates, mat pilates is a low impact, full body experience that promotes grace, coordination and body awareness. With a focus on breath, flow and balanced muscle development, Pilates will change you from the inside out. You'll discover your core in a new way, release unnecessary tension, reduce wear and tear on the joints and learn how to move through life safely and confidently.
Class will include the key principles of Pilates such as postural alignment, breathing, core stability, controlled movement and flexibility.
Remember, there are no prerequisites for this or any of our classes. Here at Zia, we lead in a way that encourages you to advocate for yourself; to reach inside your soul and find your inner strength.
Be mindful of physical sensations and navigate your edge with curiosity. Distinguish discomfort from feeling unsafe. Let your teacher know if something feels painful or weird. Advocate for what you need and remember, you are your best teacher.
**We have some props to borrow, but ask that each student brings two thick blankets (or a set of yoga blocks if you have them) to class!
