MAT Class 4 - Fully Instructional (50 mins)

Welcome to week four of my fully instructed Progressive Classical Pilates Classes, live-streamed worldwide via Skype, & recorded for you to download & practise at any time, as many times as you wish.

It also enables those joining later on in the series to play catch up, & begin with the all important foundation if necessary..

Each Wednesday between 10 & 11 am (UK time) we follow a good proportion of the Classical Pilates Matwork Repertoire, with focus on:

Connecting to your mat
