PILATES

with Angela Luem, Sacopee Valley Adult & Community Education

Mat Pilates is a gentle form of exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles while also training your arms and legs. Mat Pilates is based on the original exercises Joseph Pilates developed to strengthen his own body as a very young man and then began teaching others. The Mat work came before any of the Pilates equipment he developed. It includes many exercises, can be practiced anywhere, and is easily modified for any age, body, or fitness level. Pilates is wonderful for every body of every age. Balance, strength, flexibility, focus, and your breath are all areas you may notice have changed with age. Pilates, at its core, works on improving all of those things. We meet virtually online. ALFA Pilates sends a link to zoom one hour before the class begins. You will need a device to attend the class on, a mat, and enough space to move around. For information on more Pilates classes and private Pilates sessions visit alfapilates.com  Please preregister, which allows for individuals to be contacted with link, payment options, and other information.
