Join physiotherapist Sara Gentin @theBarre for a 6 week course designed to give you an in-depth lesson in how to use Pilates to aid functional movements (aka your body in daily life!). No matter your Pilates experience, this course will allow you to hone and enhance your movement to get the full benefit to your body through expert physiotherapy assessment and understanding your own body.
In no time you’ll feel strong and competent to take on more advanced moves in class with this BEAST program! No, we don’t mean you’ll be an animal, but rather…
WEEK ONE: Breathe
The core to movement is breath. Learning to control breathing helps to regulate the body and the brain for efficiency and fluidity. Through Breath you will learn how to assess situations and respond in a way that conserves energy and allows for execution of efficient movement.
WEEK TWO: Experience movement
Experience movement in all different planes, learn to understand limits, push through them and or work with them when required. The human body is not made to go forward and backwards, but it is made to adapt and move to all different stimuli that its confronted with. Come see how….
WEEK THREE: Assess your movement
Day to day with life’s stressors, we build up tensions whether we like it or not. When training and competing, these tensions become more significant. It can be anything from clenching your teeth to over gripping your toes into the ground. Assessing your body, to become aware of these tensions and release them is significant to better performance in all your endeavours especially @theBarre classes.
WEEK FOUR: Stabilise
Through a combination of modalities we learn the importance of our stabilising muscles. These muscles are what help hold us up tall, improve our posture and prevent injuries that are preventable. These are the skills that help give you an advantage over the rest.
WEEK FIVE: Tech
Understanding what you do and being able to perfect technique is the key to self improvement. You will learn to becoming a better athlete by listening, applying and finding new ideas to keep creating changes that keep your body working to the best of its ability through pain free backs and necks in challenging workouts.
WEEK SIX: Combine
Now that you’ve tackled the BEAST, this class will focus on Pilates style movement - putting everything together! ARE YOU READY?
