FOUNDATION COURSE (5 Introductory lessons)
You learn all the main positions. In each lesson you focus on one or two principles and special designed exercises will make you experience them.
PILATES LEVEL I
Successive course to the foundation course. Here we learn new exercises and add small props like balls, bands, foam roller, toning balls, magic circle stability cushion etc. This way the exercises stay interesting and you can put a new focus on them each time.
Pilates Level II
Building up from level I. In this course further and more complex exercises are added, that expect a certain physical control. The addition of different props make the training interesting and challenging.
The Reformer is the most popular equipment machine that Joe created. It is an apparatus that enables you to slide and in addition you adjust the level of resistance. The reformer is a very effective training tool on which many exercises can be done in all basic positions, some of which are not possible on the mat. Thanks to the resistance the training results are faster than on the mat. Private and training in pairs.
Adding a Jumpboard to the reformer brings cardio benefits to the lesson, so you can expect to sweat.
Maybe the most challenging of all the apparatus that Joseph Pilates created. Perfectly suitable for feet- knee- and hip stability. With the addition of the resistance the training gets more intense. Specially recommended for leg and arm work.
Strengthening, Stretching and development of the core muscles. The Pilates Arc can also be placed on the Reformer to enlarge the repertoire. Back and shoulder muscles are strengthened and mobilized but also the balance can be trained.
From now on you can have a versatile and demanding circuit training on the different equipment (Reformer, Chair, Tower and Arc) that Joseph created . In addition you can use the TRX for more strength and instability. The positive part are the small groups this way you set high quality training with individual attention. The lessons are put together in a way that you are challenged over again each time.
Intensive and varied full body training. With these functional exercises we train several muscle slings simultaneously. You will be training strength, stamina, coordination, flexibility and balance. For a stronger training we include small props and weights. In the Studio we will work with the TRX. Suitable for all ages.
PRE AND POST NATAL PILATES
