Starting Saturday, September 25, 2016, Ignite will be offering a new Pilates mat class every Saturday at 10 am throughout the winter. It's only $5, and all fitness levels are welcome.
Why should you take a Pilates mat class? Here's three reasons from Very Well.
Get the basics: You'll learn all of the fundamental Pilates movement techniques in Pilates mat classes. Neutral spine, a properly engaged core, c-curve, shoulder and pelvic stability, spinal articulation, full breathing, working with oppositional energy - all are integral to Pilates mat work.
Mat classes give you the benefits of Pilates: A Pilates mat workout is an exceptionally good workout that will provide the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits, not to mention that Pilates mat work is the alpha and omega of core workouts.
Mat work improves body, mind and spirit: Pilates exercises are always practiced with the Pilates principles of centering, concentration, control, precision, breath and flow. When a Pilates workout is infused with this kind of attention and quality it becomes more than a physical experience, and the effects are felt throughout one's life. The mat is the perfect place to embody the Pilates principles.
