PE 28 - Pilates II

Pilates is a mind-body discipline that uses non-impact exercises designed by Joseph Pilates to develop strength, flexibility, stability, coordination, and physical awareness. Practiced regularly, Pilates improves control and endurance in the entire body. Students learn Pilates breathing, principles, and its progressive repertoire, and how to apply them to correct their own movement patterns. Pilates enhances performance in other athletic activities and also in the activities of daily life. Students are expected to come ready to learn about a new way of moving with awareness. Regular attendance and focused attention are essential; cell phones are not allowed in the class. Dress for movement, but clothing should not be too baggy.  Classes are suitable for students of any level. No prior experience necessary. Pilates exercises can be modified to benefit all body types and backgrounds. All are welcome! (1 Credits)
