Pilates Matwork

Pilates is an established and recommended form of exercise by many medical practitioners, developed by Joseph Pilates to initially improve his own health and fitness. The Pilates method is developed around precise flowing movements and when practiced, faulty movement patterns in the body can be identified and corrected. Pilates realigns, evenly conditions the body, improving posture and back strength. The body is stretched and strengthened, targeting the deep ‘core’ muscles giving the body a defined and lean shape. Flexibility is improved, joint mobility enhanced, helping to decrease and prevent muscular pain and tension.

Gentle Somatic Yoga (GSY) is an exploration of movement that is revolutionary in its ability to improve health, wellbeing, quality of life, and personal performance. GSY incorporates slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to heal persistent tension-based patterns in the body.

The techniques known as Somatic Movement Flows, are designed for a personal exploration of the mind/body connection. This is achieved through isolating specific muscles, mindfully contracting those muscles, and then slowly releasing them until the tone of muscles return back to neutral.
