About this course

Pilates is a form of body conditioning that focuses on strengthening and stretching the whole body. Pilates can help improve posture, muscular strength, mobility, flexibility and breathing techniques as well as help relieve tension and stress. A variety of exercises are performed whilst focusing on technique and control from the core muscles. Each class will have a varied theme and will build upon skills as you learn week by week.

Themes will include:
• Using core muscles effectively
• Practicing lateral breathing
• Practicing muscular strength and endurance exercises
• A working knowledge of how to improve standing posture
• A working knowledge of how to improve sitting posture
• Improving spinal mobility
• Improving balance
• Identifying how to work at a comfortable level depending on your own ability

Your class will be held in our studio where you will benefit from practicing as part of a small group with individual attention.

After this short course you should be able to: Identify your core muscles and be able to use them in exercises; Put the essentials of good posture into practice in everyday life; Practice introductory Fundamental Pilates exercises; Have a working knowledge of some basic stretches that can be used at home as required to relieve everyday muscular tightness.

You will need to be able to follow verbal instructions, observe and copy physical movements and use spatial awareness within a group. Although there is no specific work set outside of the class, students will gain most benefit if exercises are performed regularly and practiced between classes.

We generally have quiet, gentle music in the background

We may have a temporary change of venue in the early summer when our normal hall is used for public exams

How will I be taught?

Demonstration, group and individual tuition. Within the group setting you will receive personal support and/or feedback during class. Your tutor will discuss your individual progress with you on request and give you further feedback as required. You will be encouraged to be aware of your own progress as only you can feel the changes happening in your body. Group feedback will be regularly given.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will need comfortable clothing that allows ease of movement, preferably a T-shirt and soft trousers or leggings. Please don’t wear a black T shirt / top - to make it easier for your tutor to observe subtle body movements. A fleece may keep you snug when we relax. Denim jeans, formal trousers, short shorts, skirts or dresses are not suitable for this activity. You will be exercising in socks for hygiene reasons or bare feet if you have your own mat and small equipment. You may be advised not to take part if you are not dressed appropriately. Please bring a small hand towel and water and avoid eating a large meal prior to exercising. Mats and small equipment are provided by your tutor or you may bring your own.

What can I do next?

Specialist advice is available from your tutor to help identify the next suitable course for you. Alternatively visit our website www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.

What do I need to join the course
