Instructor: Lacey Vassar
This class consists of low-impact exercise that aims to strengthen muscles and build coordination, balance, and mobility while improving postural alignment, flexibility, and endurance. Using mostly body weight (and the occasional resistance band, weight, etc.), we will target the core - abdominals, hips, inner and outer thighs, and the back. Expect the moves to involve slow, precise movements and breath control. We will focus on the mind-body connection: dedicating your entire focus to even the smallest movements means that you’ll effectively work the muscles that each exercise intends. Pilates serves as a foundation for and complements other fitness endeavours because it prepares your body to move more efficiently in every way. Adding it into your routine will help you lift heavier weights, run faster, etc. Exercises will be modified to adapt to the fitness and experience levels of those in class. Expect to leave class having completed a great workout and walking a little taller!
