MAT Class 8 - Fully Instructed (Running Time: 55 Minutes)

Welcome to week eight of my fully instructed Classical Pilates Classes, live-streamed worldwide via Skype, & recorded unedited 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
  • The set up of each exercise
  • Establishing & FEELING where the all important energy is placed to ensure our minds & bodies work as one fully integrated whole.
