Mat Pilates For beginners

how to do mat pilates

I have recently joined a gym, ugh–The good news is that I have had an opportunity to take the plethora of classes they have to offer.

Last week I have had the pleasure of taking a beginners Mat Pilates class (on the Floor),   And I will have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I’m not a boot camp or Zumba kinda girl. I don’t like a high intensity work out with a whole lot of movement.

What I loved about the mat pilates is that a lot of the moves were concentrated on specific muscle groups but you didn’t feel as if you were straining or killing yourself, Although you did feel the burn; which to me is the most important thing.

The Pilates  “method,” as it is now known, is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility, strength, and body awareness, without necessarily building bulk. The method is a series of controlled movements performed on specially designed spring-resistant exercise apparatus and the sessions are supervised by specially trained instructors.

The key training of Pilates in general is core strengthening and spinal alignment two things that are a great basis for any healthy work out.
