Pilates, Stretch & Relax

The benefits of Pilates are well acknowledged (see below for full details). Having a strong core, a mobile and strong spine and flexible limbs can make everyday activities so much safer and more enjoyable. This is also why many professional sports people (men as well as women!) include Pilates /Core Training as part of their fitness regime.

So what more incentive do you need to join us???

The sessions are held in the Rhodes Room (1st Floor) Bramhall Village Club, Lumb Lane, Bramhall - the room has heating and air conditioning for comfort, and free parking is available.

There are currently 4 sessions each week:

Monday 10.15 to 11.15 - Mixed Ability with some previous experience
Monday 11.30 to 12.30 - All Levels with experience

Thursday 10.00 to 11.00 - All Levels with experience
Thursday 11.15 to 12.15 - Improvers (ex-Beginners)

All previous participants and those who have attended Pilates classes in the past are welcome to return, subject to the usual Health Questionnaire and the availability of places.

************************************************************************

Each course of 6 structured and progressive sessions aims to provide the following:

Increased Spinal Mobility - a strong healthy back needs to be flexible and strong enough to deal with the strain of everyday living

Stronger Core - strengthening the deep internal abdominal muscles will provide additional support to the back, improve balance thus reducing the risk of falls, and build inner control

Better Posture - raising awareness of good posture can help reduce general wear and tear on the back and may reduce reliance on painkillers for minor back problems

Increased Flexibility - effective and targeted stretching will help lengthen and relax muscles and also provide ideas for improved warm up before, and cool down after, other daily life activities and interests

Relaxation - valuable 'me time' reduces stress and enables evaluation of techniques learned during your workout

If you want to become stronger from the inside, improve posture and flexibility, and generally make yourself better able to deal with daily challenges then book now!
