iMap My Pilates Matwork Programme
Pilates, if practiced with consistency, improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the whole human body. It focuses on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance.
Through this programme, participants will learn:
Pilates demands intense focus: “You have to concentrate on what you’re doing all the time. And you must concentrate on your entire body for smooth movements.”
“Nothing about the Pilates Method is haphazard. The reason you need to concentrate so thoroughly is so you can be in control of every aspect of every moment.“
For practitioners to control their bodies, they must have a starting place: the center. The center focal point, known as the “Powerhouse” is the group of muscles in the center of the body; encompassing the abdomen, lower and upper back, hips, buttocks and inner thighs.
- Flow or efficiency of movement
Pilates aims for elegant sufficiency of movement, creating flow through the use of appropriate transitions. Once precision has been achieved, the exercises are intended to flow within and into each other in order to build strength and stamina.
Precision is essential in Pilates: “concentrate on the correct movements each time you exercise, lest you do them improperly and thus lose all the vital benefits of their value”.
In Pilates exercises, it is important that the practitioner breathes out with the effort and in on the return.
