Autumn Pilates calendar

Core control and stability, progressive Pilates programme

Join us for our Autumn Pilates calendar.

The theme of this month’s calendar is core control.

Core stability relates to the region of the body that is bounded by the abdominal wall, the pelvis, the lower back and the diaphragm and its ability to stabilise the body during movement. This can often be thought of as the body’s natural corset. Ensuring core strength and stability is vital to ensure a healthy, sustainable movement for our daily lives as well as for exercise and sport.

As we work through the month we begin with easier classes, building in intensity throughout the month to challenge ourselves to a greater degree. As always, classes will include variations of difficulty – so please work to a level you are comfortable with, only progressing if you feel you are ready.

This calendar will follow our usual format of mixing brand new classes as well as utilising some of our old favourites.

I do hope you enjoy it. Please let me know in the comments at the bottom of the page.
