Samantha Brown instructs the following:
This class focuses on improving deep core strength, endurance and control. Exercises are selected to challenge mobility and stabilization through the core and peripheral muscles while adding flexibility and suppleness to your body. Resistance props are incorporated to add variety and familiarity.
It is necessary to attend three Essential matwork classes before booking onto our Essential/Intermediate matwork class.
This class incorporates more complex choreography and is delivered at a faster pace. It adds a level of complexity to further challenge and builds on benefits gained from your Pilates workout; introducing a new range of movements that further build tone and strength. A class for those who have already mastered the exercises at beginners' level.
A good knowledge of Pilates is necessary to join this class.
This class is a step up from the Essential reformer level and continues to build on endurance and core strength while improving coordination and flexibility.
In this medium-intensity class you will work both the core and peripheral muscles, to ensure you are on your way to having a strong and streamlined body as you continue to strengthen and stabilize the hips, knees, and ankles.
You are required to attend at least 3 Essential reformer classes or 2 Private Foundation’s prior to attending an Essential/Intermediate reformer class.
This class is suitable for women who have had their 6 week post-natal check-up and babies up to one year old are also welcome to accompany you. Focus is on improving the condition of both your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles without placing strain on the joints or back. It will in fact strengthen the back, the stomach and the muscles around the pelvic area – allowing for a quicker recovery.
No previous experience of Pilates is necessary.
